Whyte have matched their brand-new frame with a rail mounted maximum capacity 750Wh Bosch battery Bosch Performance Line CX motor and smart system control suite with SRAM’s wireless GX AXS shifting. That means race dominating power with all day range, modular display options, the complete ride Bosch eBike Flow app and the fastest, slickest, cleanest gearing available.
What really pushes Whyte's e-bikes to the next level according to multiple awards, top reviews and absolutely stoked riders is our Total Geometry ride dynamic. thier unique frame layout puts the centre of gravity lower and more centralised to combine unshakably gripped trail connection and instantly reactive, corner flicking, apex clipping geometry. Add the perfect Maxxis tyre combination, Fox Performance suspension custom tuned by a multiple UK series and National Enduro champion (who is also Whyte's lead designer - Sam Shucksmith) and adjustable stroke dropper and you’re not going to find a better riding mid travel e-MTB. Especially as the RS runs an MX style 27.5in rear wheel as standard for the steeziest scrub and schralp heroics.
The new 85Nm Performance Line CX drive unit and Bosch’s largest capacity 750Wh battery are positioned to give an ultra-low centre of gravity, delivering responsive and intuitive power with the most agile handling imaginable.
Our Senior Design Engineer Sam Shucksmith, the current and two-time British Enduro Series Champion is dedicated to researching and developing the ultimate suspension tune. He has set up the best, most optimised suspension performance for the e-160 to give you the best grip, confidence and control.

Every bike we sell is fully assembled and tested for safety by our trained mechanics. We then partly disassemble the bike and carefully re-pack to prepare for shipping.
Depending on the model, upon receipt you may be required to straighten and tighten the handlebars, reattach front wheel and attach the pedals. Please ensure that the pedals are greased and fitted correctly - the pedals will be marked L and R and have to be fitted to the left and right cranks respectively. Pedal do not come with every bike and need to be bough separately, especially on more high-end models. Please check when you are ordering.
There is a guide in the box telling you which tools you will need and the steps to follow. This will require some degree of mechanical skill to put together and can need some minor adjustments. The less confident you are in this field the more we'd recommend having it checked over by a professional mechanic.
We offer a standard 48Hr Service for courier shipping via Royal Mail for accessories, and APC Next Day for bike deliveries.
