Click to read moreSkilled riders and magazine reviewers know you don’t need a rear shock to get rad on the toughest trails. You just need a Whyte 900 series hardtail. Already hailed as the greatest Trail Hardtail ever, we’ve amped up the ability right through the range, so you can charge climbs and rip out of corners better than ever with the pure lines of our original dedicated SCR hardtail frame. 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 2.65 to 2.8in WTB tyres on super wide 29 to 35mm rims, adding a welcome dose of pneumatic suspension whilst increasing traction and reducing fatigue. 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. In other words, everything you need for High Definition trail domination without the extra weight, faff or winter worries of full suspension.
With the 901 it's all about the geometry - it will make you feel more confident in all situations than any hardtail you've ever ridden. With it's BBX frame there is the easy option to upgrade to a Whyte Drop.it seat post.
Get A Grip
The award winning 901 features the "Get A Grip" seat post clamp system. This allows quick adjustment, fantastic weather proofing and a nice ergonomic lever which is easy to operate however cold your hands might be.
The 901 rides on high air volume 2.6" Maxxis Forekaster tyres which combine with the WTB STP i29 rims to create more comfort, more control and more fun!
