    Yeti SB 66 Carbon: Fork options, Fox 34 CTD Kashima (150) vs X FUSION SLANT 34 (160)

    Any recommendation? Worth to pay additional for performance/weight?

    The SB 66 Carbon should be optimized for a 150 travel fork...does it make sense to go up to 160 for trail riding?

    I've heard that the Pike is a good option too, but I don't have access to that one right now.

    Thanks!

    graves is running a 180 at pmb so 160 is fine. really depends on your conditions/ needs though.

    I run mine with a DPA lyrik at 160mm with travel adjust down to 130mm. I run it at 160mm 98%, except for maybe slow extended climbs where I pop it down to 130mm. The bike is an animal at 160mm. Feels right.

    Just straight to the 36 160 - you won't regret it
