Whyte Hybrid & Commuter Bikes

Montpellier

The Montpellier has a full carbon RC-7 frame and fork incorporating our “Oversize/Undersize” approach from our carbon hardtails to give great power delivery away from the lights, but with class leading comfort. Based on our high performance mountain bike geometry, the Montpellier bridges the gap between out-right road speed and MTB control, with its long wheelbase and relaxed head angle for high speed stability, and a shorter stem for excellent slow speed manoeuvrability. The Montpellier takes advantage of SRAM’s Via GT groupset, specifically designed for Urban riding with optimised ratios and slightly wider Q factor for a little more heal clearance. Spec highlights: SRAM Via GT 2 by 10 groupset / Whyte R-7 deep section rims with 3M reflective decals / Ergon GP1...

Chiltern

When we set out to create a range of bikes that would handle all-terrain use we started with the geometry of the frame. 13 years of off-road experience told us that these bikes first and foremost needed to handle sweetly, whether riding along a canal tow path, heading down a woodland trail, or beating the traffic on the way through town. A custom rear drop out allows us to fit the hydraulic disc brake calliper inside the rear triangle leaving you plenty of room to fit a rack and mudguards if desired. Full Shimano 10 speed using the Deore/XT Trekking groupset for unbeatable performance and reliability. Spec highlights: Shimano 3 by 10 groupset / Hollow Tech II crankset with 48-38-26 gear ratios / Double wall and eyeleted rims with DT Swiss...

The Stirling takes advantage of SRAM’s Via GT groupset, specifi cally designed for urban riding with optimised ratios and slightly wider Q factor for a little more heal clearance. Spec highlights: SRAM Via GT 2 by 10 groupset / Ergon GP1 custom grips / Avid DB-1 disk...

Caledonian (Men’s)

Our custom built frames are loaded with unique design touches and British weatherproof features – such as the forward facing seat slot that stops water spray from the rear wheel getting into the frame and the continuous outer cables that keep the gear shifting working smoother for longer. ■ The ride-feel of these bikes is second to none, with a fantastic quality lightweight frame including our unique rear seat stays which really improve the comfort and performance, whatever the terrain. Full Shimano 9 speed with SLX Shadow rear derailleur and Octalink BB interface for MTB levels of durability. Spec highlights: Shimano 3 by 9 groupset / SR Suntour NCX fork with hydraulic lockout and alloy steerer tube / Shimano 446 hydraulic...

Caledonian (Women’s)

All the same key design features as the Unisex version, with the added benefit of a partially dropped top tube. This increases standover height, while still keeping enough room inside the frame to comfortably fit a water bottle. Another benefit of the partially dropped tube is the maintained stiffness of the frame (fully dropped top tube frames are flexi and offer less steering control). Full Shimano 9 speed Deore with Octalink BB interface for MTB durability. Spec highlights: SR Suntour NCX fork with hydraulic lockout and alloy steerer tube / Shimano 3 by 9 groupset / Puncture resistant all-terrain...

Strawberry Hill

The Strawberry Hill is Whyte’s take on a lifestyle bike. Stylish is clearly the aim but we also wanted to add a technical solution, so that this bike could handle hills and head winds without drama. A 27-speed Shimano drive train concealed behind a full chain guard gives you performance and elegance. Comfort was given top priority with the Strawberry Hill. The Sella Royal Milo saddle is supremely comfortable but also lightweight, the grips from Ergon are designed to perfectly fit your palm on a swept-handlebar bike and even the brake levers have a Kraton insert to add a tactile and comfortable feel. Full mudguards, a chainset cover and internal cable routing keep all the moving parts away from the rider. Spec highlights: Alloy triple butted frame / Alloy fork with alloy steerer / Shimano 3 by 9...
