With their long front ends, short chainstays, low bottom brackets and slack head angles, Whyte’s 900 series bikes are faster, more confident and more fun than any hardtail has a right to be. The testers agree, with MBR magazine awarding the 905 a perfect 10, and What Mountain Bike summing it up by saying: “Whichever option you pick from Whyte’s new 650b Trail Hardtail range, you’re onto a winner.” “An absolute ripper that will put a massive smile on your face every time you ride it… 10/10″ MBR magazine part 1, part 2 “Every ride on the 901’s a buzz.” MBR magazine Whyte 901 revisited The 2017 frame has a bolt-thru rear axle and designed for a 1x drivetrain only.

405

The 405 is unique and probably the ultimate kid’s mountain bike. By using 26″ wheels rather than the usual 24″ Whyte has created a boost in performance similar to an adult switching from 26″ to 27.5″ wheels. More confidence, more control and easier riding.

This frame has Whyte’s usual features, such as extra mud clearance for all-weather usability, forward facing seat slot to keep rear wheel spray out of the frame, Getta Grip seatpost clamp (easy to use for small hands) continuous outers for improved cable life and crud-catcher mounts on the downtube to keep the grit out of your teeth.
