Product Details

Whyte 909

Fox Float Performance 34 forks and Shimano's M8000 XT groupset takes the Whyte 909 hardtail trail MTB to an enduro-racing level of performance, previously reserved for full suspension MTBs.

Upgrades from Whyte 905

  • The latest Fox Float Performance 34 fork Grip Damper offers consistent 3-position (open, medium or firm) damping and is upgraded with a stiffer Boost 15x110mm through axle.
  • 'M8000 is by far the best XT group Shimano has ever offered.' Bicycling magazine.
  • The Shimano XT M8000 1x11 transmission now offers an even mightier gear range in a simple single chainring, single shifter, single mech format via its 11-46 cassette.
  • The RaceFace Turbine Cinch's narrow/wide chainring teeth do a sterling job of meshing perfectly with the chain for optimal power transfer matched with chain suck-prevention security.
  • The XT M8000 brakes have a growing reputation for being the best hydraulic discs for the money when it comes to matching performance with reliability.
  • The Shimano M8000 XT brake levers' slimmer master cylinder helps free up bar space.
  • Appropriately for a best-of-British bike the Whyte T-130 RS even boasts that peerless UK piece of engineering - a super-reliable Hope Pro 4 rear hub with stainless steel bearings. See review.
  • The KS CRUXi Dropper Seatpost with Southpaw alloy remote is more sophisticated.

Same as Whyte 905

  • 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 909 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.

'Our top-end trail hardtail is dripping with lust-worthy components such as Shimano's XT M8000 1 by 1 1groupset and brakes, RaceFace's Turbine Clinch direct mount chainset system with a 30mm alloy Boost axle and screw in BSA BB cups.

For 2017 the 909 gets full-on Enduro/Trail attitude with the all new Fox 34 fork, with its GRIP damper, which gives amazing steering precision and poise when combined with Whyte's trail geometry.

The 909 has an all new frame for 2017 with "Intergrip” seat post clamp system, new BBX internal cable routing and
12mm bolt through 148mm Boost rear axle, giving extra stiffness and increased chain clearance.'
