Product Details

Whyte G-160 S '17

This is the great value enduro race-ready Whyte G-160 with a RockShox Yari RC 35mm-stanchion fork with a 110mm x 15mm Boost Maxle with matching RockShox Monarch Debonair shock to make the most of its Whyte Quad Link suspension and its beefed up rear triangle, optimized for its SCR (single chain ring) SRAM 1x11 transmission.

  • SCR is Whyte's Single Chain Ring specific dual suspension frame.
  • Its SCS Symmetrical Chain Stays and its wider main pivot create an even stronger and more reliably flex-resistant rig.
  • SCR translates to you, the rider, as improved cornering confidence and enhanced suspension performance.
  • WTB Convict 27.5 x 2.5/2.4 inch TCS (tubeless compatible system) folding tyres on WTB TCS 29mm-wide rims make it very viable to upgrade to riding tubeless.
  • SRAM Guide R 4-pot 180mm rotor brakes calipers deliver reach-adjustable one-finger control and feature a stainless steel Heat Shield between the pad and caliper body.
  • The RockShox Reverb Stealth Dropper seat makes it so easy to raise or lower the saddle as the terrain dictates.

Add all the other features that make a Whyte mountain bike special, from its signature long, stable geometry to its Quad Link suspension with lifetime guaranteed pivot bearings - see blog- this is a truly exceptional enduro bike for the money.

'The G-160 S features the very latest Whyte thinking on geometry. With a super short stem and wide bar, the rider can exploit every ounce of performance from the bike.

The S is loaded with the very latest developments in Endure/Trail bikes. WTB i29mm rims combined with TCS front and rear specific tyres help to give neutral handling without too much drag.

SRAM improves both stiffness and gear tuning with their direct mount XSYNC system chain-rings, allowing the rider to change ratios easily to suit their terrain.

This bike is ready for anything you want to throw at it, from hard-core trail riding to Endure racing. Full complement bearings are used throughout the design, giving this bike exceptional durability in the harshest UK conditions.'
