Click to read moreNot everyone has the lungs and legs of our Whyte race team, but our range of electrically assisted bikes mean you can still enjoy the freedom of unrestricted riding and our unique design qualities. The latest Shimano STEPS motor and battery technology gives fully tunable, instinctively interactive power assist with an effortless exploring range of up to 125km. Whether you choose an all-terrain Coniston or the urbanised Clifton and Highgate models, our signature confident handling character and powerful disc brakes on all bikes mean their easy speed is always under control on a twisty downhill, picture postcard towpath trail or cross city commute. Because we know these are bikes for a whole new lease of life, our distinctively British Whyte styling and practicality completes the perfect way to recharge and reignite your love of riding.
Using Shimano's STEPS e-Bike Drive Unit the Highgate is able to take advantage of the pedal assist without compromising the weight distribution and therefore the handling of this compact fit bike.
The Highgate comes fitted with 650b wheels and 47c Road Plus, WTB Byway tyres. These offer great comfort with better grip and security on rough urban roads or light off road rides.
Integrated lighting, controlled from your STEPS head unit gives you fingertip control of your lights for year-round usage. These powerful lights make night riding easy but also give you the ability to use them as daytime running lights for extra visibility in traffic.
