WHYTE G-170 C WORKS
£5,499 Moving in the Whyte direction
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.
