Product Details

Whyte 629 2019 29er - Hardtail MTB

The Whyte 629 is like the 529 trail hardtail mountain bike upgraded with a complete SRAM Eagle 1x12 drivetrain and a genuine RockShox Recon RL fork.

Upgrades from Whyte 529

  • Its SRAM NX Eagle transmission has all the German-engineered features that has made SRAM Eagle 1x12 transmissions so desirable - see blog.
  • The RockShox Recon RL Solo Air fork with Motion Control damper offers super reliable 120mm-travel suspension
  • Lighter weight Maxxis High roller 29x2.35” front and Maxxis Forekaster II 29 x 2.35” rear tyres
  • These tyres and the WTB STp i25 29” rims are tubeless ready - why you should seriously consider upgrading to tubeless
  • The wheels run smoother on cartridge sealed bearings
  • SRAM Guide T 4-pot disc brakes for a smother balance braking performance. Why you should consider a bike with high quality hydraulic disc brakes - the blog.

Same as Whyte 529

  • If you want to go faster, think big. Think a Whyte 29er hardtail mountain bike redesigned for 2019 with an SCR (Single Chain Ring) specific frame
  • With its lighter weight custom tubing, its hydroformed alloy frame optimised for UK riding conditions and its progressive geometry (66.5˚ head/76.5˚ seat tube angle in medium) to keep you centered and in control, the Whyte 629 boasts the key features we love about Whyte mountain bikes
  • The frame is made especially clean with Whyte's BBX (bottom bracket exit) internal cable routing, which is weather sealed, dropper-seat ready, and designed to facilitate easier cable replacement in years to come

Here's How Whyte Describe the Whyte 629 2019

  • 'Our Alloy 29er hardtail frame is further developed for 2019 with a dedicated SCR frame. Not needing inner chainring clearance means our engineers are able to further reduce the length of the chainstays for improved agility and a more dynamic ride.

  • This new frame bristles with UK design features such as the “Get A Grip” seat post clamp system. This allows quick adjustment, fantastic weather proofing and a nice ergonomic lever which is easy to operate however cold your hands might be.

  • A full SRAM NX Eagle 1 by 12 is specced on the 629, with its huge 480% range 11-50t cassette, along with a RockShox Recon RL fork to give this bike proper trail-slaying abilities.'
