Our biggest-hitting, benchmark-setting aggro all-rounder range gets broader reaching in every way this year.

Our Works and RS models feature SRAM’s incredible new Eagle ultra-wide range gearing, with direct mount single chainrings for track specific or epic adventure ratio tuning. The unshakeable Lyrik gives our top bikes even more Enduro punch, while the outstanding RockShox Yari fork has let us create the affordable G160S without compromising any of the chaos-taming charisma. Right across the line we’ve introduced size specific RockShox Reverb Stealth posts, so bigger riders get a bigger drop, while the latest Maxxis Minion SS rear tyre on 29mm wide WTB rims boost speed and survival.

Ultra-surefooted geometry and Enduro DH winning Quad 4 suspension will dominate black runs all day long. Light, responsive, efficient pedaling 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 lifetime warrantied bearings to shrug off any weather and you’ve got the most versatile flat out fast, chaos taming, full gas all-rounders available.

"The ultra-stable chassis and balanced suspension gives you more time to react to slides, and more confidence on steeper, technical terrain. Value for money is superb too..." 9/10 mbr

"A few pedal strokes to get it up to speed, and the bike comes alive. It really was a case of ‘hold on tight’ for a super-stable run down the hill at maximum warp speed" Australian Mountain Bike Magazine

"The Whyte G-160 Works has massive appeal for a rider that knows what they want, can forego all-rounder capabilities and appreciates ultimate build quality” Flow Mountain Bike

“The Whyte G-160 S is an uncompromising gravity focussed animal, hitting a price point that will not break the bank. Its extreme geometry is perfect for enduro racing and smashing downhill tracks in the woods” Enduro Mountain Bike Magazine
