The Whyte 901 was already hailed as the greatest Trail Hardtail ever.
For 2017 Whyte have literally turned it up to 11 right through the range for 2017. Even the 901 now charges climbs and rips out of corners with SRAM’s new NX groupset and the pure lines of our first dedicated SCR hardtail frame.
Featuring, Boost width rear stays with high volume, tubeless 2.4in WTB tyres on super wide 29mm rims. Custom micro reach, wide bar cockpits give precision power steering authority through colour coded RockShox or Fox forks and the 905 and 909 come preloaded with stealth dropper posts and sweet shifting BBX control routing.
Here’s what MBR have to say..
