Product Description

Details

Whyte Caledonian Women's '17

The Caledonian Women's is the best-spec'd model in White's C7 All Terrain range with a partially dropped top tube.

All Terrain
'All Terrain' refers to Whyte's aim to create a 'do anything' bike that will perform on road and delight off road. That's why the Caledonian comes with 700x35 tyres which are smoother rolling on the road than mountain bike tyres, while the bike's suspension fork and hydraulic disc brakes make it more capable than a road bike on unpaved cycle tracks or the green routes at your local trail centre.

If you want one bicycle that does it all, a Whyte Caledonian is a great place to start.

Partially dropped top tube
Instead of producing a standard open frame or a modern women's-specific diamond frame, White have designed a partially dropped top tube. This way you get a stiffer more-efficient hence easier-to-ride bike than one with a traditional 'ladies' frame. Unlike many ladies' frames there's still enough space to fit a bottle and cage. Simultaneously, the White Caledonian Women's has more stopover clearance than a diamond-framed women's bike. See also standard version of the Whyte Caledonian.

  • The hydroformed aluminium frame is as gorgeous as we have come to expect from Whyte.
  • Check the custom dropout which positions the Shimano disc brake caliper inside the rear triangle so it doesn’t preclude fitting a regular rear rack.
  • The gear cables are enclosed to cope with varied climes - a fine example of Whyte's 'UK-proof' design ethos.
  • The SunTour fork's 63mm suspension helps smooth rough terrain, and can be locked out when rough descents make way for smooth climbs.
  • Vittoria Randonneur Trail 700x35 tyres with Double Shielding puncture protection zip along the tarmac yet offer good grip when you take an off-road detour.
  • The Shimano Deore/LX 3x10 transmission delivers a super wide range of gears and precise gear shifting.
  • Shimano BR-M447 hydraulic disc brakes deliver single-digit modulated braking - i.e. all it takes is a light squeeze of the lever with a single fingertip to apply each brake. Why you should consider a bike with hydraulic disc brakes.

Whyte Custom-drawn Tubing
We believe that Whyte are the only company in the bicycle industry who build every hydroformed aluminium frame with custom drawn tubing. This means that Whyte go to the expense of spec'ing a different tube set for each frame size. Custom tubing is Whyte's guarantee that their frames will be as light as possible in every size.

Whyte Geometry
Whyte are famed for getting their frame geometry just right, to ensure you feel confident and centered on the bike. So it goes with the Whyte Caledonian. Its road bike-like seat tube angle (73.5-74.5 degrees) positions you over the cranks for maximum pedalling efficiency. Its shallow 69 degree head tube angle makes the bike reassuringly stable, especially on downhills. The happy result is a bicycle that rides like its a natural extension of your limbs.

'Just because you're not in a hurry it doesn't mean getting there should be hard work. Our C7 bikes are as light, lively and enjoyable to ride as they look. Lightweight alloy frames and components put a permanent tailwind at your back while large volume, low pressure tyres take whatever route you decide to take in your stride.

Whether you're riding for fitness, fresh air, freedom or just the fun of finding out what's over there, these are the bikes with the clean design, confident handling and breezy speed you need.'

'Very practical and easy to ride. Genuinely nippy, responsive and fun on pretty much any surface. 9/10'
