Kashi from Yeti NZ Reviews:
"The SB115 feels mostly the same as the SB100. The geometry, which I love, hasn't changed much, which I'm very happy about. The biggest difference is that this bike is noticeably stiffer all around. And the extra travel is appreciated, especially as I love hitting some of the harder tracks around Wellington. But I don't think it detracts from its ability as a long distance race bike. It would be good to take back to the Whaka 100 to see if I can better my time from last year on this," said Mat.
For myself, I have been riding the SB130 for the past month. While only 15mm travel difference I can say this is a totally different bike. First impressions were - 'holy crap, its a rocket ship!' The bike feels like it just takes off. I guess that's a combination of all parts, but the way the switch link combines with the extra stiffness and slightly tighter angles, it felt light, fast & nimble and even up the trickest climbs it danced up with absolute prowess. I was also pretty blown away by how comfortable and capable it was on the rough desents.
I guess the way I see it, the SB130 is an all around fun as shit trail bike that I would be fine turning up and being competitive at any of the toughest enduro's in the country. The SB115 is an all around fun as shit trail bike that I could also go race the Pioneer, or Whaka 100 on. Its actually crazy there is only 15mm travel difference as they really feel very different.
