Following on from the immense success of the Whyte T-130 models from 2016, York Cycleworks are excited to be able to bring you fresh details of the up coming 2017 range.
Winner of numerous test shoot-outs and 2016 Bike Of The Year accolades, The Whyte T-130 is an aggressive trail rider's dream machine, a beautiful frame and set of geometry figures paired with a component specification carefully chosen to match the bikes intentions. With a raked out head angle of 67 degrees, plenty of top tube reach and longwheel base in each size, this is a bike that manages to be fast and comfortable on the climbs, yet absolutely and positively rips down descents. The 130mm of travel on tap is ideal for the majority of UK trails and riders, providing a bike that is both responsive to rider inputs and allows a fantastic level of feedback as you go. Single Chain Ring (SCR) frames are to be found across the range, improving the swingarm construction and stiffness levels and allowing for super short chainstays. Boost hubs front and rear add strength to the wheels and all models roll on 650B.
For 2017, the alloy framed range will start at £1899 for the T-130SX, going to £2299 for the T-130S Yari and topping out at £2750 for the RS model.
For those seeking additional performance and weight savings, there are also two amazing Carbon versions available, the Works at £4799 and the unbelievable T-130C RS model, coming in with a Pike fork, Reverb Stealth seatpost, 30mm wide Easton rims and the brand new SRAM Eagle 12 speed drive train, all for £3599, surely making this one of the best value mountain bikes of 2017!
The T-130 previously sold out completely in all models within a couple of months, so we'd encourage anyone who's interested in one to make an early inquiry if you're wanting a bike for the remainder of the summer. We're looking forward to getting our first models in over the next couple of weeks, along with a demo bike to offer those who might be tempted with a new steed!
