Whyte mountain bikes
Whyte have the motto "Performance by design" and with their main R&D team being based in the Cotswold's, they certainly know what it's like to try and release a stuck seat post in the freezing cold rain! They're noted for taking a unique approach to geometry, designed to inspire confidence regardless of the conditions or terrain you're riding on, they're legions of loyal fans certainly love their bikes, come in and join the Whyte revolution!
G-160S & RS
The G-160 is a long slack Enduro bike of the finest kind. A steady climber with a lightening fast descent while being agile and stable whilst at that speed.The RS in the RS model simply stands for Reverb Stealth. This model comes with very wide rims and therefore tyres, for additional grip and stability as well as being tubeless ready. The 1X specific specific frame and these benefits means a great value bike for both the standard and the RS model.
T-130 SX, S, S YARI, RS, C RS & C WORKS
Lets put it this way, the T-130S and RS bikes are hooligans! Short chain stays, long at the front with 50mm stems and long tops tubes adds up to a bike that will manual, jump and skip down trails while being very responsive, confident and playful. S and the RS feature more aggressive V2 frame with better geometry and SCR frame - single ring specific. These are versatile bikes, as happy on a long day out as they're efficent as well as being capable of descending anything that you'd want it to!
The T-130 range are price killers, come in and check them out for yourselves!
T-129 S & RS
T-129 is in a similar category to the T-130 but goes about things in a different manner - it's a 29er, with 120mm travel... See what they've done there? Less travel, bigger wheels, same intention. Those big 29er wheels mean that the T-129 is simply able to roll over stuff that would leave the T-130 bouncing. The T-129 offers a poise and grip that makes it a smooth and easy bike to ride. The 2016 model sees a longer reach on the frame, shorter stem and mega short chain stays which make for a super playful 29er!
901, 905 & 909
The 901 is possibly the most aggressive production hard tail out, but adds a good level of comfort to it's tough, lightweight frame. You'll outpace full sus bikes downhill whilst the 901 makes climbs a piece of cake, there's not much this little number can't do!
The 905 is Whyte's best selling hard tail. You'll get a upgrade on forks, Shimano SIX, brakes and a dropper...There's nothing not to love there. For 2016 we see a brand new 905rs launched by Whyte. This version utilises from the SRAM 1x11 groupset and the new RockShox Yari RC fork. Don't panic, you still get all of the usual 905 good stuff! The 909 sees you basically get more of pretty much everything. More upgrades, more kit, more fun!
801, 802, 805 & 806
The 8 series features another great, light and well rounded frame where the internal cable routing is a really neat feature and shows that this is much more than a bare bones MTB! The 802 features a more compact geometry to suit the female rider, without substituting any handling, comfort or possible fun that can be had on the bike. The 802 features an air sprung fork and tubeless ready tyres plus better Shimano finishing kit.
603, 604 & 605
The 6 series offers the rider a more stable and upright geometry than much of the other Whyte ranges. At home on the trails of the Peak District, a 6 series won't let you down. The 604 is a compact version of the 603 which will suit a female rider down to the ground! The 605 sees an upgrade in brakes and suspension fork.
Although Cross Country based, Whyte skew the geometry on the X29 somewhat to the fun side of things! They do this with a shorter fork and longer than average travel fork. UK designed so great mud clearance and internal cable routing again, the X29 is a great exploring hardtail! The bike will eat trails and spit out trail centers for tea. Perfect if you've got a smooth style as the bike will respond with tons of speed.
29CS & 29C Team
Essentially the X29'S big brother, carbon frames, internal cable routing and top end finishing kit. All of this combine to make the 29C range fast...seriously fast! Hit the trails on one of these and you'll be flying. Are you an XC race? This is the bike you want.
