£5,499 Mov­ing in the Whyte di­rec­tion

Mountain Biking UK - - FIRST LOOK - www.whyte.bike

We gave you a peek at Whyte’s new 650b en­duro bike in MBUK 346, and now we’ve got our hands on one to give it a proper thrash­ing. Build­ing on the old G-160, the ge­om­e­try has been tweaked, as has the sus­pen­sion de­sign, to make it more pro­gres­sive and de­liver 10mm more travel. The C Works is the most ex­pen­sive steed in the range, with a car­bon frame and a suite of top-drawer kit, in­clud­ing a Rock­Shox Lyrik RCT3 fork and Su­per Deluxe shock, 12-speed SRAM X01 Ea­gle driv­e­train, SRAM Guide RSC brakes and Race Face car­bon bar. It rolls on Whyte’s own 30mm car­bon rims, laced to Hope hubs. And for a bike of this ca­pa­bil­ity, the 13.64kg weight (medium, with­out ped­als) isn’t bad.
