801

Whyte’s  650b aluminium cross-country/trail hardtails offer a fine balance of fun and speed, and the 801 is the perfect entry point with 27 Shimano gears and upgrade-worthy chassis.

Now using Whyte’s trademark longer top tube and a 120mm fork the 2017 version of the 801 is much more capable when the trails get a bit rough.

These frames are full of clever design features, such as extra mud clearance for all-weather usability, forward facing seat tube slot to keep rear wheel spray out of the frame, continuous outers for improved cable life and Crud-Catcher mudguard mounts on the downtube to keep the grit out of your teeth.

If you are thinking of getting into mountain biking this is a great bike to start with.
