Product Details

Whyte 802 Compact 2019

The Whyte 802 is absolutely the same quality spec as the Whyte 801 but with a more compact reach via the shorter top tube and shorter stem.

This makes the Whyte 802 a better fit for smaller proportioned people, including some (but definitely not all) women. The Whyte 802 is also a perfect trail MTB for many shorter/younger guys too.

Same as Whyte 801

Shimano one-by, slack head tube angle, short chainstays, 120mm Rockshox, internal cable routing...the 2019 Whyte 801/802 MTB is more trail ready than ever.

The SCR (Single Chain Ring) frame and its 1x10 drivetrain make the 800-series MTB even closer to Whyte's 4-figure multi-award winning 900-series trail MTBs.

  • More radical trail geometry (66.5˚ head tube angle) makes the 801/802 an even more confidence inspiring ride - especially on downhills
  • Longer (120mm) travel Rockshox copes better with more challenging terrain
  • Shimano Deore 1x10 drivetrain offers further proof the one-by is the way to go
  • Why you want a one-by drivetrain
  • 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
  • Tektro Auriga brakes - given how many great bikes come with these stoppers, Aurigas are probably the best proven hydraulic disc brakes in mountain biking today. Why you want hydraulic disc brakes
  • WTB Ranger 27.5x2.25 inch tyres are genuine mountain bike treads
  • The 740mm wide bars with Whyte Lock-on V Grip and the short (35 or 45mm depending on frame size) stem put you in control

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 trail bike for the money. See our Why we’re in love with Whyte mountain bikes blog

Here's how Whyte describe the 802
'The 802 is available in the XS size, and all sizes have more compact geometry than the 801 or 805. That means slightly less length for more comfortable reach suiting riders with shorter proportions.

The 800 Series frame uses the very latest Whyte geometry, based around a longer top tube, a short stem and wide 780mm bar. The 800 series bikes also feature a 120mm travel fork, for trail-bike levels of performance. For 2019 all the 800 series bikes feature wide-range 11-46t cassettes. This extra range brings technology only seen on bikes 4 times the price just 2 years ago! Combined with Shimano Deore 10 speed shifting.

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.'
