Whyte G-160 RS '17

The Whyte G-160 RS is like the G-160 S enduro race-ready dual suspension mountain bike upgraded with SRAM Eagle X01 - the most ambitious one-by MTB gear system SRAM (or anyone else) has devised to date.

  • The latest SRAM Eagle X01 drivetrain introduces us to 1x12 gear shifting via a 10-50 cassette, making this the widest range one-by transmission to date. The resulting 500% difference between top and bottom gear (compared with SRAM's previous best 420% 10-42 cassette) helps give you the wings to soar up high.
  • WTB Maxxis High Roller II TR / Minion SS 27.5 x 2.4/2.3 inch folding tyres with EXO Sidewall protection on WTB TCS (tubeless compatible system) 29mm-wide rims make it very viable to upgrade to riding tubeless.
  • SCR is Whyte's Single Chain Ring specific dual suspension frame. Its SCS Symmetrical Chain Stays and its wider main pivot create an even stronger and more reliably flex-resistant rig.
  • SCR translates to you, the rider, as improved cornering confidence and enhanced suspension performance.
  • SRAM Guide R 4-pot 180mm rotor brakes calipers deliver reach-adjustable one-finger control and feature SRAM's stainless steel Heat Shield between the pad and caliper body
  • The RockShox Reverb Stealth Dropper seat makes it so easy to raise or lower the saddle as the terrain dictates.

Add all the other features that make a Whyte mountain bike special, from its signature long, stable geometry to its Quad Link suspension with lifetime guaranteed pivot bearings - see our Why we’re in love with Whyte mountain bikes blog- the Whyte G-160 RS truly rocks.

'The G-160 RS features SRAM’s all new Eagle 12 speed drive-train. With its huge 10-50 gear range, it gives the rider all the climbing and trail riding gears needed to save enough energy for more fun on the way back down.

The RS is loaded with the very latest developments in Trail/Endure bikes, WTB i29mm rims combined with Maxxis TR front and rear specific tyres help to give neutral handling without too much drag.

RockShox suspension gives the rider the very best enduro package available.

This bike is ready for anything you want to throw at it, from hard-core trail riding to Endure racing. Full complement bearings are used throughout the design, giving this bike exceptional durability in the harshest UK conditions.'
