Whyte Bikes are a proudly British company. They design bikes that are fully equipped to handle the harsh and at times unpredictable British weather. So if you’re searching for the ideal bicycle to meet the needs of the British cyclist, look no further than Whyte.

Who Are Whyte Bikes?

Established in ’99 Whyte Bikes are considered by many to be the benchmark for British designed mountain bikes; making them an excellent choice for anyone searching for a trail, XC, road, or even commuter bike. In their 20 years of experience, Whyte Bikes have created many bicycles that have shattered expectations, with numerous award winning bicycles.

However, whilst they have a plethora of award winning bikes such as the T-130 RS which was hailed the undisputed Trail Bike of The Year, they also make bicycles designed for those who are just starting their journey in the cycling hobby, such as the entry level 600 series.

Whyte Bikes – Not Just Mountain Bikes

Whilst they are unquestionably famous for superb off-road bikes with the Alp taming G170 series bike, it’s also important to remember that this brand also has a diverse catalogue of bicycles designed for numerous different terrain; including road bikes such as the award-winning Wessex road bikes, or the Friston V1 an all-terrain multi-purpose hybrid bicycle that is ideal for those who want to ride on both roads and off-road or dirt path environments.

How Do Whyte Bikes Differ From Other Bikes On The Market?

With regards to their mountain bikes, Whyte design their bikes in order to provide the rider with confidence. They achieve this by pushing the front wheel further in front of the rider at a slacker angle. This allows the steering of the bicycle to correct itself which is extremely useful when riding down a difficult to navigate mountain trail, thus providing the cyclists with more confidence in their abilities and pushing them to reach new personal bests. However, the self correcting steering isn’t advantageous for off-road mountain bikers; it’s also a very useful feature for cyclists who commute to work. Whyte Bikes and their self correcting steeling are the ideal choice for cyclists who need to ‘dodge traffic’ or quickly avoid ‘sneaky potholes’ or other hazards they face when road cycling.

In order to meet the needs of the British cyclist and provide an enjoyable riding experience during the rainy British weather, the bearing sets have an extra layer of grease and have a lifetime manufacturer warranty, as Whyte write on their website “in the unlikely event you do manage to wear them out we’ll send you a free replacement set as a prize for your dirt dedication.”

Cycling is a fantastic way to achieve your fitness goals and is ideal for those looking to lose weight or recover from injuries. It’s a low-impact form of aerobic exercise that works both your lower body and cardiovascular system; the low-impact nature of the exercise allows people to slowly build up strength and endurance without placing too much stress on joints.
