Take the rough with the smooth. Ever set off for a gentle road ride but ended up in a jarring tussle with the cracked and potholed British asphalt? Not anymore. Whatever surface the road throws at you, there is now a road bike that really can cope with it all - the Whyte Glencoe. It’s a bike that defines the emerging RoadPLUS category, purring along on smooth tarmac - but when the going gets tough, the Glencoe really comes into its own.

Surprisingly smooth and quiet on the roughest roads, it encourages you to push forward where you’d normally pull back and carry more speed, grip and confidence into the bend. Long and stable frame geometry, specifically tuned for this wheel size, combined with shorter stem, wider bars and increased steering trail, create a handling formula with huge gains in high speed stability on the roughest terrain. And tough 650b wheels, complete with massive-air-volume, next-generation tubeless 47c tyres, provide supple grip and cossetting comfort all without slowing your pace.

If you love to ride but have had enough of Britain’s torn-up tarmac, the Glencoe is right up your street.

“The Glencoe represents an exciting and radical reinterpretation of what a modern road bike could be”

Road Plus Tyres

The Glencoe combines our Gravel/Adventure frame with Road Plus tyres. These high air volume 650b tyres have the same rolling circumference as a 700c X 28c setup and give huge levels of comfort and security on even the roughest road surfaces.
