Whyte 901 2020 - Trail Hardtail MTB

'With the Whyte 901 it's all about the geometry - it will make you feel more confident in all situations than any hardtail you've ever ridden. The latest 901 comes fitted with exactly the same frame as the 10/10 award winning 905 frame.

The Whyte 901 has major updates – it’s upgraded to 2.8” tyres, it now mirrors the 905’s award winning performance. It also gains a Whyte seat post, featuring a reliable sealed cartridge design and TRP’s excellent new Slate 4-pot brakes, with technology developed on the World Cup DH series with Arron Gwinn.

Key Features

  • 6061 alloy, hydro formed T6 aluminium frame
  • RockShox 35 Gold RL fork
  • Maxxis High Roller II 27.5" x 2.8" tyres
  • SRAM SX Eagle, 12 speed gears
  • Whyte II seatpost
  • Whyte Custom saddle

More Reasons to Buy the Whyte 901

  • Skilled riders and magazine reviewers know you don’t need a rear shock to get rad on the toughest trails. You just need a Whyte 900 series hardtail. Already hailed as the greatest Trail Hardtail ever, they’ve amped up the ability right through the range with their latest generation short offset geometry, so you can charge climbs, dominate descents and rip out of corners better than ever with the pure lines of thei original dedicated SCR hardtail frame.

  • Because a kick-ass hardtail doesn’t have to kick your ass they’ve also teamed their snake hipped, shock eating, Boost width rear stays with high volume, tubeless 2.8in WTB tyres on super wide rims, adding a welcome dose of pneumatic suspension whilst increasing traction and reducing fatigue.

  • Custom micro reach, wide bar cockpits give precision power steering authority through colour coded RockShox forks and preloaded with astealth dropper post and sweet shifting BBX control routing.

  • In other words, everything you need for High Definition trail domination without the extra weight, faff or winter worries of full suspension.

  • Last year RockShox and Fox increased their tyre clearance to allow up to 2.8” tyres into a standard length 27.5” fork, whilst maintaining the ideal fork length for our progressive geometry. This gave the Whyte 901 the best of both worlds - exceptional grip and comfort with amazing control and performance.

  • For the latest 900 series bikes Whyte introduced the final part of the geometry puzzle with 37mm offset forks. This is the same “short offset” philosophy that they applied to the highly-successful S-150.

  • Whyte’s latest OTO (Optimised Trail Offset) geometry system uses a new generation of reduced offset forks. It increases the Trail for improved steering stability and moves the mass of the fork and wheel closer to the steering axis for a more neutral steering feel.
