“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” – Winner best in test, 10/10- review of the Whyte 905 in the December issue of mbr, out now.
November’s Cycling Plus looks at the benefits of single ring transmissions in an article featuring the new Whyte Wessex One. “We love Whyte’s extensively UK-proofed Wessex all-road bike, and we’ve been running a single-ring build on a Wessex SE frame as our disc brake/wheel and tyre test bed all last year. For 2018 Whyte has modified the mould and added SRAM’s wide-range Apex 1 group set to create the clean looking, superb single ring One.
"The Whyte S-150 is the bike UK riders have been waiting for, versatile, confident, and outrageously fun to ride fast. It’s a bike that works exceptionally well, everywhere and in every way!"
Review from Enduro Mountain Bike Magazine online- http://enduro-mtb.com/en/whyte-s-150-works-review/
"It’s odds-on to become the new benchmark 29er"
"Great geometry, sizing and suspension. Keen pricing too, given that you can still walk into a shop and sit on one"
Review from mbr magazine August edition.
"Whyte's S-150 Carbon RS is as up-to-the-minute as a trail bike can get. It's carbon, it has big wheels, it ticks all the long, low and slack boxes, and hey, that's wonderful, but what makes the S-150 stand out in the present long-travel trail bike mosh pit can only be experienced by riding it. It pedals, steers and handles less like a bicycle and more like you have zipped on a mountain bike super power suit. In less flowery language: "For sale: 150-millimeter-travel dual-suspension 29er that will make you beg to ride every day. Needs nothing"
"Whyte has done a great job with the suspension, stiffness and geometry. It’s a fast, fun and responsive trail shredder that should suit riders who want a bike that balances agility with stability, and efficiency with comfort"
"Not only is it the most surefooted fun by far as we swerve and surf the singletrack north back to High
Paradise Farm, it’s also a surprisingly smooth, efficient cruising and practically detailed, weather sealed ride on the road too, putting it right at the progressive edge of all-round adventure enjoyment"
Full test review in this months Cycling Plus Summer 2017 edition out now.
"First run down our test track and it was clear that the 2017 Whyte T-130 S has lost none of its magic. Eye-wateringly fast and a total riot to ride, we could hit all of our lines with confidence and get creative with new ones too" - review in this months mbr magazine.
"Whyte’s affordable 605 hardtail might not break the bank, but when it comes to on-trail performance it blows most rivals out of the water thanks to a frame sporting bang-up-to-date geometry and well-chosen components"
“Put simply, the Whyte Wessex is a bike that’s had us redefining our own conceptions of an ‘all-rounder’.”
“Sure, we’ve seen bikes that match an endurance geometry with racy responsiveness and no short amount of prodigious speed, or race-ready bikes fitted with the latest and greatest ride-softening innovations, but the Whyte Wessex is quite possibly the king of them all, with no stone left unturned in its goal for the perfect ‘four season’ bike.” - RCUK
"This all-aluminium bike doesn’t mind a touch of abuse – and why not? That’s what’s it made for after all. Yet again we see Whyte pushing to the front of what’s happening not just in the UK but worldwide. The T-130 is a truly brilliant trail bike"
"We’ve been running a 2016 T-129S test bike over the last year here at Dirt and it has proven to be a winner. All the changes we’ve made to the spec of ours have been addressed for 2017. A finely tuned trail bike gets even better"
"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"- review in the March edition of mbr out now.

"Whyte set itself the goal of creating the most dependable, reliable, comfortable bike for surviving the worst conditions, and it it has ticked all those boxes. This is a very impressive bike" Road CC
"The excellent Whyte 403 offers a ‘grown up’ ride while serving up lashings of confidence, reliability and above all fun to the most important mini-shredder in your life. While more expensive than the standard ‘catalogue’ bike, seeing your kid grinning from ear to ear as they fall in love with riding is priceless. The Whyte 403 is a great buy" - Enduro MTB
"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.
"Having the Wessex undoubtedly motivated me to head out a lot more in adverse weather, and it flawlessly dispatched each and every mile. Whether it was a two hour blast, my club’s 100-mile reliability trial, or even a gravel excursion, I always returned feeling positive about the experience." - Cyclist Magazine
"I simply didn't ride a more addictively involving, multi-purpose, madness-ready trail bike all year" T-130C RS long term review in January 2017 edition of What Mountain Bike magazine.
"The muscular Whyte Wessex I was riding cut effortlessly over the smooth tarmac, the comfortable 30c tires sliced easily through the fallen leaves that littered the road" Gran Fondo
"Whyte sent me the T-130 while I was reviewing a handful of other makes, ranging from enduro monsters to lightweight XC trailbikes. More often than not, it was the Whyte that I reached for when I had the choice". - Pinkbike
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
For an average rider, the Whyte T-129 is a fun and confidence inspiring bike that will unlock new found speed on flowing terrain – more advanced riders will find the nimbleness and playfulness of the T-129 RS simply electric, rewarding with blistering speed and raw excitement. -Enduro Mountain Bike Magazine
Whyte have long taken a pragmatic approach to their drop-barred range, and were one of the first brands to run slightly more relaxed geometry than a classic ‘cross race bike. Times move on though, and the 2017 range represents a further evolution to that approach.- GRIT.CX
