We’ve grown up riding and racing the tough roads and tougher weather of Britain, but only now have we been able to make the perfect bike for not just surviving but thriving in these conditions.

The latest research proves that tubeless 30mm tyres are as fast as skinnier tyres on typically rough road surfaces but far more surefooted and comfortable. The precise fingertip feedback of hydraulic disc brakes means assured descending confidence whatever the last cloud or tractor dumped on the next corner. Wide range gearing lets you spin efficiently where you used to struggle, so you hit hill after hill fresh not broken.

A collection of components is useless without the frame to match though, so in the words of our former Elite, UCI ranked road racing designer Ian, we’ve created the ultimate “21st century British road bike.” Light, aerodynamic and precise steering for searing speed, but with the rear stay and 27.2mm seat post compliance to fight fatigue all day. Naturally it’s got ample clearances for large volume tyres and all the weather sealed, non frame-rubbing DOX internal cable routing wisdom of our MTBs. We’ve even designed our own flush-fit mudguards because you’re never far from rain even in July and we know this is a bike you’ll want to ride every day for sportives, Strava, fitness or just because serious performance is seriously fun.

Our ultra-versatile, freedom breeding road machines are cleaner, leaner and even more capable than their multi-awardwinning predecessors.

Lightweight multi butted alloy frames with the latest flat mount or post brake fittings mean they look and ride like true thoroughbreds on a weekend. Our sealed, sweet shifting and easily serviced BBX control lines mean a weekday workhorse life won’t effect ride quality either.

We’ve chosen ideal ride complimenting components such as the latest high volume tyres from WTB, with disc brakes and Shimano shifting for easy speed and all-weather safety. Our bikes get a wide range cassette for cramp-free climbing and our Compact Fit bike gets a smaller chainset to match. After all, if you’re going to enjoy every ride, wherever it takes you, it’s often the smallest details that matter the most.

Our fast urban bikes combine the easy speed of a road bike with the confident control, comfort and see-everything safety of an MTB style flat bar ride position.

We use disc brakes on every bike so weather doesn’t decide whether you’ll stop and larger 32mm tyres for pothole proof speed. Broad range gears in simple sequential single ring or closer stepped double ring options team with lightweight alloy frames, carbon forks and carefully selected components to shrink distances and flatten hills.

Sealed internal cable routing and colour coded detailing combine with rack and mudguard mounts to make these bikes as practical as they are stylish and swift.

ROADPLUS / ADVENTURE

Take the rough with the smooth... Click to read more

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.

GLENCOE

SRAM APEX 1 levers combined with Tektro HyRd hydraulic disc brakes / SRAM APEX 1 drivetrain / WTB tubeless ready rims and Horizon Road Plus 650b x 47c tyres

 
 

GRAVEL / ADVENTURE - GX SERIES

Our G-X bikes are versatility defined. On-road, off-road or both in the same ride, our uniquely capable, effortlessly comfortable yet efficiently fast Friston and Gisburn bikes set a new standard for any-ride all-rounders.

In fact we’ve pushed the off road boundaries of drop bar bikes so far we’ve had to make our own components such as a 500mm wide bar and 15mm through-axle carbon fork to keep up. That’s because our MTB inspired, relaxed head angle, stretched top tube geometry and even a dropper post as standard on the Gisburn will keep you in control way beyond what most 700c bikes can cope with.

Carefully engineered stays, 40mm tubeless tyres on wide rims (plus the option to fit the latest 27.5in RoadPLUS wheels and tyres) means exploring your wild side will be endlessly enjoyable, not barely endurable. They’ll still feel fast and efficient when you’re joining dots on the road or navigating city streets not distant hills.

SRAM’s super wide range single ring transmissions and fingertip sensitive hydraulic disc brakes with direct fit 160mm rear for extra power are the perfect component partners to our ultra-versatile design vision. Our unique sealed InterGrip seat post mounts, DOX internal cable and dropper post routing makes them as weather-proof as they are future-proof and means the only limit on what our G-X bikes can do is your imagination.

"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" Cycling Plus

"Radically controlled, capable, comfortable, practical and surprisingly swift all-rounder" Cycling Plus
