Product Details

Whyte Dorset 2018 Road Bike

Whyte's 21st century road bike with disc brake and wide 700x32 is equally fit for weekday commutes and weekend sportives.

With its TRP HyRd cable-operated hydraulic disc brake, its carbon fork and its Shimano sora 2x9 shifters and mechs, the Devon is a great choice if you're looking for a cross / gravel / adventure / touring/ sportive-ready bicycle with genuine road bike-like speed potential.

Carbon forks
If you want to reduce weight whilst improving comfort, aerodynamics and steering response, upgrading the fork blades from metal to carbon is probably the most profound improvement you can make on a road bike.

TRP HyRd disc brakes
TRP HyRd cable-operated hydraulic disc brakes work with conventional drop bar brake levers, yet they offer the adjustability and power previously reserved for hydraulic brakes. The advantage of this system over any previous cable-actuated disc brake system is that the pads are much easier to set up at an optimal distance from the rotor without rubbing. These brakes automatically self adjust so the pads move closer to the rotor as they wear down. This means that TRP (Tektro Racing Products) HyRd disc brakes maintain optimal performance over the whole life of every set of pads (just like full hydraulic brakes).

To quote's review'TRP Hy/Rd disc brakes combine cable actuation with hydraulic power right in the calliper. They're powerful, easy to live with and the best solution so far for disc brakes with conventional brake/gear levers.'

Flat mounts make for exceptionally neat disc brake calliper fitting

Exceptional wheels and tyres
Whyte deep section rims are lightweight, strong and contribute to the bicycle's authentic road bike looks. The rims' 3M reflective decals enhance safety. The rear wheel's offset spoke hole design effectively equalises spoke tension on both sides to create a stronger rear wheel, whose lateral stiffness you'll appreciate every time you accelerate. Cartridge sealed bearing hubs ensure the wheels are smoother-rolling

WTB Exposure 700x32 folding bead tyres conform to the growing consensus that, within reason, wider tyres don't just create a plusher, more comfortable ride - especially on dirt roads - they can also be quicker - more on this

A gear for anything ridable
Shimano Sora 2x9 shifters with 11-34 cassette and 32-48t chainrings offer a wide range of gears to help make hill climbs easier and flat roads faster.

Mudguard and rack compatible for all-season performance
Full mudguard and rack compatibility means the Whyte Devon could easily double as a fast touring / commuting / everyday bike.

Whyte even make their own mudguardsto match this bike. If you want mudguards and/or any other extras fitted, let us know when you order the bike and we will customise it to your requirements at no extra labour charge.

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 Devon. Its road bike-like seat tube angle (73.5 degrees in 54cm) positions you over the cranks for maximum pedalling efficiency. Its 73 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.
