Product Details

Whyte G-170C RS 29er 2019

Whyte's all new 170mm travel 29Er enduro race-ready full suspension bike with a stiffer, light weight carbon main frame and SRAM Eagle 1x12 equipped

Upgrades from Whyte G-170 S

  • Stiffer, lighter weight carbon main frame
  • The RockShox Lyrik RC 29”, 160mm Travel fork is famed for offering Pike-like (i.e. the best) performance, but with thicker tubing and a more beefy arch to cope with its longer 170mm travel
  • SRAM Code R, 4 Pot brakes with 200mm rotors
  • SRAM Eagle 1x12 gearing simplifies and improves the drivetrain.
  • The SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain delivers 1x12 gear shifting via a 10-50 cassette, making this the widest range one-by transmission to date. The resulting 500% difference between top and bottom gear (compared with SRAM's previous best 420% 10-42 cassette) gives you the wings to soar high
  • Why you want a one-by drivetrain
  • Maxxis Minion DHF WT, TR, 29” x 2.5” front / Maxxis Aggressor WT, TR, 29” x 2.5” rear tubeless-ready tyres
  • Why upgrade to tubeless?
  • The rear hub's cartridge sealed bearing helps make for a smoother rolling wheel
  • The dropper post is upgraded to the industry standard RockShox Reverb Stealth

Same as Whyte G-170 S

The G-170 S is a great value 170mm travel enduro race-ready full suspension mountain bike, built on Whyte's proven SCR (single chain ring) frameset with 148mm Boost rear dropouts.

  • 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
  • The SCR frame also supports the rear wheel better and boosts its lateral stiffness

The benefits of Whyte's unique MTB trail geometry in their own words'

We push the front wheel further in front of the rider at a slacker angle to the frame. This helps the steering ‘self correct’, keeping you on track whether you’re ripping down a rowdy mountain trail or a back road short cut turns out shady. By adding a long reach top tube we can team the stable steering with a super short, snap reacting stem for dodging traffic and potholes on the way to work or surfing sliding tyres down a black run descent. Add our own carefully selected handlebar shapes and you’ve got the perfect balanced of confident communication and connection in your hands.

Steering feel alone isn’t enough to create a benchmark setting, award winning handling character though. We also drop the centre of gravity of our bikes as low as possible so they naturally glue themselves onto the ground through corners rather than leaving you perched and precarious. Because driving a barge is dull we keep the back ends super short whatever the wheel size to guarantee the hop and pop agility you need to bring the trail alive.'

Add all the other features that make a Whyte mountain bike special, such as their unique Quad 4 suspension with UK-proof lifetime guaranteed pivot bearings, it's hard to imagine a better trail bike for the money. See our Why we’re in love with Whyte mountain bikes blog.

Here's how Whyte describe the G-170C RS

'The RS uses the same highly developed frame as the Works bike, as used by our International EWS race team. This year we’ve gone big - the 29er wheels make this the fastest Gravity bike we’ve ever created.

This bike is ready for anything you want to throw at it, from hard-core trail riding to EWS Enduro racing. With its open front triangle design it is possible to fit various options of rear shock including coil shocks and still carry a full size water bottle.

The G-170C RS 29er has extra width built into the rear chainstays allowing the rider to fully exploit future developments in wide high volume tyres up to up to 29 x 2.5” and maintain mud clearance.'
