Product Description


Whyte Coniston Women's 2018

The Shimano STEPS power-assisted Coniston has been our deserved best selling women's electric commuter bike since its introduction in 2016.

See our 30-plus reasons to love STEPS Shimano Total Electric Power System blog.

Whyte electric bikes

  • Significantly, Whyte had been considering launching an electric bike for a number of years, but decided to hold off till e-bike technology came of age
  • The launch of STEPS was the cue for Whyte to create the Coniston, their first e-bike, in 2016
  • Combining STEPS with Whyte's UK-proof bicycle design ethos has enabled this Cotswolds-based company to create one of the smoothest-riding and most reliable e-commuter bikes we've ever had the pleasure to offer
  • The Coniston looks and rides like Whyte's tried-and-tested, dirt road capable, All Terrain commuter bike with suspension forks - the Caledonian
  • Then it's turbocharged with around £1,500-worth of STEPS e-bike technology so the bike feels blissfully like you're always riding with a tailwind
  • The fact that the Coniston looks like (but rides much easier than) a regular quality Whyte bicycle means that the Coniston works for a younger demographic than first generation e-bikes

More good things about the Whyte Coniston

  • A fantastic range of 10 gears via its Shimano Deore Shifter, rear mech and 11-36 cassette in a bang up to the minute 1x10 format - why this is good
  • Shimano hydraulic disc brakes are a by-word for reliable performance. Why you want a bike with quality hydraulic disc brakes
  • The gear cables are enclosed to cope with varied climes - a fine example of Whyte's 'UK-proof' design ethos
  • Vittoria Randonneur Trail 700 x 35c tyres with Double Shielding puncture protection zip along the tarmac yet offer superior grip when you take an off-road detour
  • Eyelets and clearance make the Coniston rack and mudguard compatible
  • If you would like us to fit anything to a Coniston, just ask when you order the bike and we'll waive the normal fitting charge
  • Fitted with an extra sturdy chainstay-mounted kickstand - handy for parking the bike while you grab your key to unlock the battery to recharge it when you get home

Whyte's Ingenious Women's Frame
The women's version of the Whyte Coniston offers a good insight into the extra care this British company devote to designing every bike. Instead of producing a standard open frame or a modern women's-specific diamond frame, Whyte have opted for 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 enough room to fit a bottle and cage. Simultaneously, the Coniston has more stepover clearance than any diamond-framed women's bike.

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 Coniston. Its road bike-like seat tube angle (73-74 degrees) positions you over the cranks for maximum pedalling efficiency. Its comparatively shallow 69.5-70 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.

'Using Shimano's STEPS e-Bike Drive Unit the Coniston is able to take advantage of the pedal assist without compromising the weight distribution and therefore the handling.

Our custom built e-Bike frames are loaded with unique design touches and British weatherproof features - such as the forward facing seat slot, continuous outer cables that keep the gear shifts working smoother for longer and optional custom matched mudguards.'
