Upgrades from Whyte 901

  • RockShox Revelation RC fork with lighter weight 35mm aluminium upper legs (the 901's Recon fork has 32mm diameter steel legs) and DebonAir spring for enhanced small bump sensitivity and mid-stroke support
  • Sram Eagle 1x12 speed gearing
  • SRAM Trail T 4-pot brakes for more powerful braking
  • Why you should consider a bike with high quality hydraulic disc brakes - the blog.

New for 2019

  • For 2019, every Whyte 900-series bike has got even better thanks to the 37mm offset forks. This is the same "short offset" philosophy that was applied the highly-successful S-150
  • Whyte's latest OTO (optimised trail offset) geomentry 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.

Same as it Ever Was

  • With its lighter weight custom tubing, its hydroformed alloy frame optimised for UK riding conditions and its progressive geometry to keep the rider centered and in control, this bike boasts the key features we love about Whyte mountain bikes - see blog
  • The 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 12 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 tyres and rims are tubeless ready
  • Why upgrade to tubeless?
