Whyte T-129 S

The Whyte T-129 S is a slightly detuned version of the T-129 RS, described by Bike Radar as 'One of the best bikes anyone has ever built.’

The Whyte T-129 S is legendary for offering the the balance, grip, control and bump absorption of a 150mm-travel 26 inch-wheel full suspension bike in a simpler 120mm-travel format, whilst introducing a new level of speed potential via its 29 inch wheels.

  • The short rear end helps keep the rear suspension fully active when required, firm when not, whilst enabling a roomy cockpit without over-stretching the wheelbase, so it doesn't lose Whyte's trademark nimble steering qualities.
  • Curving the seat tube forward enables Whyte's geometry trickery plus it helps Whyte achieve their UK-proof aim of offering more tyre/mud clearance .
  • Improved trail geometry for 2016 (67 degree head tube / 74 degree seat tube angle in medium).
  • The 50mm stem and the 760mm wide bars add to the Whyte T-129's fast-but-controlled steering vibe.
  • The SRAM GX Matchmaker 2x10 shifters have no problem moving the chain between the SRAM trail ratio 36/22 chainrings and up and down the 11-36 cassette.
  • The RockShox fork with 15mm Maxle is a Revelation with matching RockShox Monarch shock at the back.
  • On the off-chance you ever want to slow up, SRAM DB5s are among the best hydraulic disc brakes made.
  • The RockShox Reverb Stealth (which allows you to adjust your saddle height via its handlebar mounted remote control) is generally reckoned as the best dropper seatpost on the market.
  • Whyte Intergrip Internal Seatpost Clamp - with their best MTBs such as their T-129 range coming with dropper seatposts, Whyte have designed a neat, weatherproof, internal clamping system, which replaces the standard QR or Allen key seat clamp with a single bolt, which keeps the seatpost securely in place.

'The entry point to the T-129 range features a Rockshox Reverb Stealth seatpost and Whyte’s integrated “Intergrip” seat post system. This neat solution gives the T-129S a clean look and fantastic weather proofing.

The Geometry of the T-129S is further improved over the 2015 award winning Works SCR bike and these angles (67 degree head tube / 74 degree seat tube angle in medium) are the very latest in progressive trail geometry from Whyte.

Our Quad 4 suspension layout allows us to apply our contemporary 29er geometry to the 120mm suspension trail bike category. Short chainstays give this bike the agility of a 27.5” wheel bike but with the inertia and terrain flattening advantages of a larger 29er wheel.'
