TRAIL / HARDTAILS
“Whyte claims that this is the best 905 it’s ever built, and we agree. It’s also the best hardtail we’ve ridden, period, and easily deserving of a perfect 10 rating” 10/10 mbr
“The Whyte 905 redefines the limits of production hardtail performance”
Because a kick-ass hardtail doesn’t have to kick your ass we’ve also teamed our snake hipped, shock eating, Boost width rear stays with high volume, tubeless 2.8in WTB tyres on super wide rims, adding a welcome dose of pneumatic suspension whilst increasing traction and reducing fatigue.
Last year RockShox and Fox increased their tyre clearance to allow up to 2.8” tyres into a standard length 27.5” fork, whilst maintaining the ideal fork length for our progressive geometry. This gave us the best of both worlds - exceptional grip and comfort with amazing control and performance.
For the latest 900 series bikes we can introduce the final part of the geometry puzzle with 37mm offset forks. This is the same “short offset” philosophy we applied to the highly-successful S-150.
901 has major updates – it’s upgraded to 2.8” tyres it now mirrors the 905’s award winning performance. It also gains a Whyte drop.it seat post, featuring a reliable sealed cartridge design and TRP’s excellent new Slate 4-pot brakes, with technology developed on the World Cup DH series with Arron Gwinn.
905 is upgraded to Eagle NX and gains SRAM’s excellent new Trail T 4-pot brakes. Another major improvement is the 37mm offset fork with the new Charger Damper Revelation fork.
