Product Description

Details

Whyte 806 Compact 2018

The Whyte 806 is absolutely the same quality spec as the Whyte 805 but with a more compact reach via the shorter top tube and shorter stem.

This makes the Whyte 806 a better fit for smaller proportioned people, including some (but definitely not all) women. The Whyte 806 is also a perfect trail MTB for many shorter/younger guys too.

Same as Whyte 805

Shimano one-by, slack head tube angle, short chainstays, 120mm Rockshox, internal cable routing...the 2018 Whyte 800-series MTB is more trail ready than ever.

Smart upgrades for 2018, such as 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.

  • Smooth Motion Control damped, lighter weight RockShox Recon Silver RL 120mm travel fork with Turn Key lockout and Boost 110x15mm axle
  • The Maxle 15mm screw-through axle noticeably stiffens up the fork/front hub interface yet it's almost as easy to secure and release as a regular roadie QR
  • The wheels spin more smoothly on sealed cartridge bearings hubs
  • The grippy, front and rear specific Maxxis Ardent and Maxxis Crossmark II 27.5x2.25” inch tyres and the WTB STp i25 rims are tubeless ready
  • Why upgrade to tubeless?
  • More radical trail geometry (66.5˚ head tube angle) makes the 800-series MTB 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
  • Whyte 6061 hydroformed frame with custom tubing for lightest weight in its class
  • 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
  • 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
