Product Details

Whyte 905 '17

The 2017 Whyte 905 w/RockShox Yari Boost fork, dropper seatpost, 1x11 drivetrain and tubeless-ready improves on Dirt mag's 'Best hardtail bar none, 2015'

Upgrades over Whyte 901

  • The 130mm-travel RockShox Yari fork's 35mm stanchions and its new-standard Boost 15x110mm axle makes it even more robust, predictable and controllable on technical terrain.

  • Its dropper seatpost makes it so easy to raise or lower the saddle as the terrain dictates.
  • Both wheels roll on cartridge bearing hubs.
  • The High Grip WTB tyres do exactly that.

Same as Whyte 901

  • With its lighter weight custom tubing, its hydroformed alloy frame optimised for UK riding conditions and its progressive geometry (66.5˚ seat/74˚ head tube angle) to keep the rider centered and in control, the Whyte 905 boasts the key features we love about Whyte mountain bikes - see blog.
  • The new-for-2017 Whyte 900-Series frame is built for the bike's one-by transmission, so it features Boost dropouts to take the longer, stronger 12x148mm axle appropriate for a rear hub with an 11 speed cassette.
  • This frame design maximises the strength and integrity of the rear wheel by positioning the Boost hub flanges more outboard, thus reducing stress on the spokes.
  • The WTB TCS (tubeless compatible system) 29mm-wide rims and 27.5x2.4” TCS folding tyres make it very viable to upgrade to tubeless.

'The award winning 905 is back and better than ever for 2017, with a dropper post, SRAM GX 1 by 11 and WTB wide
rims with high air volume TCS tyres. All these features give the rider even more "Trail Control”.

The 905 has an all new frame for 2017 with "Intergrip” seat post clamp system, new BBX internal cable routing and 12mm bolt through Boost rear axle, giving extra stiffness and increased chain clearance.

WTB STp i29 29mm wide TCS rims combined with 2.4” high volume TCS Tubeless tyres give the 2017 905 more grip so
the rider can push the bike even harder. To give extra front end grip we have specced a High-Grip compound tyre.'
