Product Details

Whyte 29 CS 2018 Carbon Hardtail MTB

Shimano XT / Fox Float fork equipped carbon frame, Whyte's carbon 29er has the potential to be the fastest hardtail mountain bike you've ever ridden.

  • 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
  • The Shimano M8000 drivetrain is all we have come to expect from Deore XT made even more user-friendly in this 1x11 version
  • Why one-by is the way forward see blog
  • The XT brakes are equally smooth working and reliable
  • Maxxis IKON 29 x 2.2” 120tpi folding bead tyres boast EXO sidewall protection
  • Both the tyres and the Race 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 29 CS 2018
' The 29CS comes fitted with the Fox Step-Cast front fork. This fork has proven to be the benchmark in XC over the last season by exploiting the Boost front hub in a light-weight narrow pitch chassis.

This bike will not only get you round your favourite XC loop in record time, it will also give you the control and balance of the very best of our Whyte trail bikes.

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.'
