Highlighted by Dirt Magazine as a new benchmark in its category and recipient of group-test wins and the perfect 10 score, the G-170 platform provides exceptional balance and control on the most challenging trails.
Our latest generation short-offset geometry is highly evolved and ultra-surefooted. Enduro DH winning Quad 4 suspension will dominate black runs all day long. The light, responsive, efficient pedalling SCR framesets keep you fast and fresh however far away you’re hunting for thrills. Add our sealed InterGrip seat post clamp system, masses of mud room and upgraded pivot bearings to shrug off any weather and you’ve got the most versatile full gas all-rounders available.

Built to allow riders and racers the set-up options to tune the G-170 for both air springs or coil springs (a crucial detail that separates the true EWS race bikes from the rest) the evolved short-offset geometry has been refined into a sensitive balance of front end precision and overall front to rear balance and control, with a low and centred rider centre-of-mass for ultimate confidence on the most technical and challenging terrain. Following feedback from our Enduro Race Team, the changes in geometry (stack, reach and chain stay length) have given us a more neutral riding position whilst providing better front/rear weight distribution for enhanced traction, cornering control and balance. The effect is an increase in traction through the front wheel for security in cornering whilst allowing the rider to stay in a more neutral position, bearing less weight through the arms, improving rider agility and reducing fatigue.
Our latest generation QUAD 4 system is built around a metric shock with all-new low-profile hardware, including Enduro TM main pivot bearings. The G-170 features our new flush industrial design and critically, room for a full-size bottle.
The line has expanded to include 650b bikes and 29ers, with the new G-170 Carbon 29er Works bike aimed squarely at the privateer or professional Enduro racer. The benefits of a larger wheel size have long been appreciated by Whyte with the original and staggeringly capable T-129. The G-170 29er has been developed for those who want to descend the roughest terrain in the fastest possible time and then pedal back up.

"The G-170’s suspension is seriously capable and keeps the rear wheel glued to the trail even when I feel like I’m right on the tyre’s limit" “Speed really was where this bike shined ever so brightly; it’s so stable due to its length and excellent suspension that you really do feel like there is not much that you can’t do.” G-170S AMB magazine
"One for racers and white-knuckle descenders, the Whyte G-170 RS is a potent race-weapon, and the ‘hardcore’ choice in the range". "If you have the skills to unleash the beast, the G-170 delivers a firm uppercut of fun." G-170C RS enduro-mtb.com
