Product Details

Whyte Wessex 2019 Di2 Performance Road Bike

We've grown up riding and racing the tough roads and tougher weather of Britain, but only now have we been able to make the perfect bike for not just surviving but thriving in these conditions.

The latest research proves that tubeless 30mm tyres are as fast as skinnier tyres on typically rough road surfaces but far more surefooted and comfortable. The precise fingertip feedback of hydraulic disc brakes means assured descending confidence whatever the last cloud or tractor dumped on the next corner. Wide range gearing lets you spin efficiently where you used to struggle, so you hit hill after hill fresh not broken.

A collection of components is useless without the frame to match though, so in the words of our former Elite, UCI ranked road racing designer Ian, we've created the ultimate "21st century British road bike.” Light, aerodynamic and precise steering for searing speed, but with the rear stay and 27.2mm seat post compliance to fight fatigue all day. Naturally it's got ample clearances for large volume tyres and all the weather sealed, non frame-rubbing DOX internal cable routing wisdom of our MTBs.

We've even designed our own flush-fit mudguards because you're never far from rain even in July and we know this is a bike you'll want to ride every day for sportives, Strava, fitness or just because serious performance is seriously fun.

TUBELESS / CARBON RIMS

  • Ultegra Di2 takes all year-round riding to a new level. With Tubeless tyres mounted on our own Whyte carbon rims and the all new Ultegra disk brakes consistent control in all weather is guaranteed.

SHIMANO DI2

  • Shimano's new Di2 Ultegra gives the rider more control over shifting, Whyte have fitted a bar mounted junction box/display, so the rider can see battery life and adjust shifting settings with ease.

MUDGUARDS

  • The ability to fit full length mud guards makes the Wessex arguably the most versatile and capable carbon road bike we have ever made
