Whyte Bikes USA 2020 Line-Up

The ten out of tens and five out of fives review scores our bikes have been getting are partly down to another set of numbers. The ones that make up Whyte’s unique geometry and ride character. Whether it’s our Alp taming, EWS thoroughbred G170 series bikes, our 900 series trail hardtails or our mould-breaking, award-winning Wessex road bikes every Whyte is designed to create a unique chemistry with its rider to let you go faster, further and more comfortably in total confidence.

That’s because we push the front wheel further in front of the rider at a slacker angle to the frame. This helps the steering ‘self correct’, keeping you on track whether you’re ripping down a rowdy mountain trail or a back road short cut turns out shady. By adding a long reach top tube we can team the stable steering with a super short, snap reacting stem for dodging traffic and potholes on the way to work or surfing sliding tires down a black run descent. Add our own carefully selected handlebar shapes and you’ve got the perfect balance of confident communication and connection in your hands.

Steering feel alone isn’t enough to create a benchmark setting, award winning handling character though. We also drop the center of gravity of our bikes as low as possible so they naturally glue themselves onto the ground through corners rather than leaving you perched and precarious. Because driving a barge is dull we keep the back ends super short whatever the wheel size to guarantee the hop and pop agility you need to bring the trail alive.

We’ve also created our own linkage systems and worked with our suspension suppliers to create custom tunes that keep ride height and geometry composed and consistent however hard you drive through turns, haul on the brakes or stamp the pedals. We also equip all our suspension bikes with dropper seat posts so you can stay low and mobile as well as fitting grippy front, fast rear rubber to underline their swaggeringly confident yet addictively responsive character.

For 2020 we’ve evolved our geometry and parts pick even further, adding even more control and keeping you further ahead of the competition than ever.

 Whoa, that eMTB is hideous.

 Aren't they all?

 looks heavy af

 Doesn't look much uglier than any other emtb, which is to say it looks awful
  • 9 1
 The battery should at least be able to supply some rich energy. It looks full-bodied.

 It's like the bike version of a Dadbod

 @iduckett: I think it looks stag-nant

 Cough Cough Specialized copies. S-130 "WORKS" like come on Whyte, can't you think of something a little more original like Pro or a number system? When I first saw a Whyte I thought it was a stretched out, 2014 era Stumpjumper knockoff. They do look nice tho, and for the price the specs are pretty good.

 Lol true, they even have the exact same suspension design as they old Stumpy's.

 I was volunteering as a shuttle driver for a bike demo day this year...Norco, Pivot, Specialized etc were all there. Noticed passengers were raving about Whyte bikes, a brand I hadn’t paid much attention to since it was ‘just another’ Horst 4 bar, so later in the afternoon I rode the S-150 and it just felt so ridiculously dialed in in terms of suspension feel & geo I bought one a month later. Beefy bearing pivots with lifetime free replacement, nice low BB, Carbon triangle targeting stiffness rather than light weight, blah blah ... works for me.

 What happened to their affordable T-130's? Previously they had the S, and SR(?) models, that were solidly in the $2-3k range. Now it looks like they only have 1 Aluminum full suspension model for adults?

I nearly bought a Whyte bike 2 years ago (T-130, and also strongly considered a 901), but with pretty much only carbon bikes available now, the brand gets pushed into the "maybe if I get an unexpected huge bonus" category.

 Looks like they do have 2020 models with the lower price-point on there website. At least for US...

Ah, I'll admit to not looking at their website before commenting. I'm glad to hear that they aren't discontinuing their more budget oriented lineup. Thanks for checking for me Smile .

Just a little bit confused why they wouldn't have their whole lineup in the press release.

 Really excited to see Whyte bringing their ebike over. I use to love riding, but one day I was stricken with porphyria and couldn’t ride anymore. Now thanks to ebikes I can ride again. Looking forward to trying one of these.

 I just picked up the 2020 Whyte 905 to use as my spare bike (My main bike is a 2018 Fuel EX 9.8 upgraded with carbon line pro 30 wheels, DPX2 and 140mm Fox Factory 34). Only gotten two rides in on the 905 and I am still adjusting to it from my FS since it is a hardtail, but it has been a riot so far. I have been very impressed with how much traction the front end is giving me and how composed it feels going fast. Plus the folks as Whyte have always been super responsive to all my questions and have given great customer service so far.

 Will the bikes come with a case of Rich Energy?

 I think its Poor Energy now.

 I'm glad to see Whyte in the press for 2020 in the U.S.! I took the leap on the Whyte brand in 2018 (T-130). Top quality, attention to detail, great customer service. The most playful, capable, and inspiring bike I've ridden. Been riding since the 1970's. I've never owned a bike that draws this much attention at the trail head. Online photo's don't do them justice.

 The build kit options are all over the place. $4k on the S-120 gets you Shimano XT 12sp complete with the 4pot brakes but the same amount of cash in the S-150 gets you craptacular GX?
  • 7 5
 Okay, why do they all look so bad? Can't they see? Great bikes but they sure need to rethink the looks.
  • 4 1
 Been at this for some time and can honestly say people drool when they see them in person.
  • 3 2
 @brookesbruno: The people you speak of, did they crash while not wearing a helmet? Id drool for this bike if it was the last bike on earth. But you have frames that are night and day better looking than a Whyte...
  • 2 2
 @chillrider199: Well my crew are ballers so maybe. Nothing can touch the spec and price point and a 'me too' bike is not for me either. I can honestly say out of 25+ mountain bikes I have had these take the cake of the wow factor in person.

 Some people are saying they've never seen bikes so nice. Perfect.

 As a family design language its all working quite well. Some of the details like the see-thru seat tube gusset are a little gratuitous, but overall the line looks pretty nice. Original colorway choices too.

 The 120mm looks sick, but I wish it was with 27.5, and a 140mm up front 36 or pike.

 Just built the works 120 and have the works 130....its the same front triangle and the 130 and has a 140 Pike and 130 in the rear 27.5.

 Interesting reading comments about great customer service - in US I haven't been able to get a response from either Whyte or their distributor... otherwise looks cool...

 Mines snapped. Since it happened I've contacted Whyte a couple times and not heard back. It has been 2 weeks now.

 Show stopper anytime I pull up to the trailhead! Have the 120, 150 and 170 rides increadible!
  • 2 1
 In your opinion which one do you like best. Where I live I was looking at the 150 but the 170 looks good too. Where I am at in colorado we have 1hr climbs for 20min descents.
  • 1 1
 Also should add we have only 1 flow trail. 99% is just rocky chunk and steeps. With waterbars and drops
  • 3 0
 @Cspringsrider: Justin here with Whyte. If you are pedaling alot and will be doin long rides.. you might want to lean towards the 150. This bike will eat up the chuck and steeps as well as climb great. Very fun lively , snappy bike! The G-170 is great too, just a bit slower on the up hills and begs for the steeps, rocky DH at speed. Great for enduro racing

 @whytebikesUSA: Ok I am slow on the uphill no matter what lol. Is there any bike you reccomend for heavy people? I already stay away from carbon. But any advice you have is appreciated
  • 2 0
 @whytebikesUSA: is there any way I can test ride them here in colorado? I usually overbike because of my weight I am 280 kitted up
  • 1 0
 @Cspringsrider: Our bikes are very stout.Your weight would be ok on any of our bikes. All our carbon frames do have a aluminum rear triangle. We do offer a 30 money back guarantee and are located in northern Ca.

 @whytebikesUSA: wow it is nice to have a response from the company Smile I have always been a fan and have been waiting for more information. Keep up the good work. I would love to have a bike shop up here with your brand on it.

 @Cspringsrider: Where I live (within 20 min of each other) is TWO different worlds. 120 is for fast single track, flow, punchy climbs trails & it replaced my Trek Fuel. GF uses the 130 for added traction with 2.6's but I also race that bike for dual slalom and when I go jumping and throw on 2.35's. 150 is for REAL enduro type riding and CRUSHES it - its not a 'trail bike' but I can ride it for hours getting to different enduro trail 'zones' then destroy it on the way down. I bought a 180 World Cup for the front of my 170 and it is my dedicated DH park bike 180/170 27.5. BTW I purchased them all from Justin in California (US distribution) and it was a pleasure working with him. So far ZERO issues and extremely fast turn around times with any questions I might have.
