Skilled 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.

“takes on the daftest lines with total confidence” Enduro MTB

“900 series frame is still the hardtail benchmark for XC agility and speed with black run attitude.” What Mountain Bike

“For those looking to smash out ride after ride without the complexity and expense of a full suspension bike, it’s faultless” Enduro MTB

“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

Latest Generation

The new 905 defines the modern Trail Hardtail.  Its stripped back SCR frame, the all new RockShox Revelation fork and the 2.8" tyres make this the best 905 Whyte have ever built.

More Grip = More Fun

WTB STp i35 35mm wide TCS rims combined with Maxxis 2.8" high volume TR 3C compounds create more comfort, more grip and more fun

Tuned to Perform

The new 905 brings ideas directly from our Whyte Enduro team, from the thicker V-Grips to the use of 170mm cranks to bring the rider 5mm closer to the ground without compromising pedal clearance.

 
It spins along effortlessly, and its impressive ability to hold its speed means you’ll have more in the tank to attack the climbs. In that respect, it’s still one of the best trail hardtails on the market
