Product Details

Whyte 29C Team 2018 Hardtail 29er MTB

With its no-compromise best-of-the-best spec, this is Whyte's top of the range XC race mountain bike.

Upgrades from Whyte 29 CS 2018

  • Factory version of the Float SC (Step Cast) fork - this is Fox's lightest, smoothest (Kashima coated) XC fork to date
  • Carbon Wheels
  • SRAM Eagle XX1 1x12 drivetrain
  • SRAM Level Ultimate disc brakes

Same as Whyte 29 CS 2018

  • The full carbon frame with skinny seat stays is as laterally stiff and as comfortable as Whyte's carbon road frames
  • Fox Float 32 Step Cast fork, rated 'one of the best race forks out there' and was rewarded with a 4.5/5 score by MBR magazine - review
  • Maxxis IKON 29 x 2.2” 120tpi folding bead tyres boast EXO sidewall protection
  • Both the tyres and the Face rims are tubeless ready
  • Why upgrade to tubeless?

The benefits of Whyte's unique MTB trail geometry in their own words
We push the front wheel further in front of the rider at a slacker angle to the frame. This helps the steering ‘self correct', keeping you on track whether you're ripping down a rowdy mountain trail or a back road short cut turns out shady. By adding a long reach top tube we can team the stable steering with a super short, snap reacting stem for dodging traffic and potholes on the way to work or surfing sliding tyres down a black run descent. Add our own carefully selected handlebar shapes and you've got the perfect balanced of confident communication and connection in your hands.

Steering feel alone isn't enough to create a benchmark setting, award winning handling character though. We also drop the centre of gravity of our bikes as low as possible so they naturally glue themselves onto the ground through corners rather than leaving you perched and precarious. Because driving a barge is dull we keep the back ends super short whatever the wheel size to guarantee the hop and pop agility you need to bring the trail alive.'

Add all the other features that make a Whyte mountain bike special, it's hard to imagine a better XC hardtail for the money. See our Why we're in love with Whyte mountain bikes blog

Here's how Whyte describe the 29CS Team 2018
'With the best of everything, including the all-new, Fox SC 32 fork with Boost and Kashima coating, Whyte in-house Carbon wheels and Raceface NEXT finishing kit, this is an "out of the box” ready race bike.

The 29C Team comes with SRAM's XX1 Eagle 1 by 12 drive train. This massive spread of rear sprockets gives the range to increase the front chainring to a 34T, giving even more speed at the top end with no compromise on your climbing gear.

Using our undersize/oversize chassis design for outstanding power transfer and pin sharp tracking, combined with fatigue reducing compliance, this is a high- speed bike you can ride all day.'
