G-160 S

With the same long, long front centre and 160mm travel, this platform is perfect for gravity enduro racing or just bombing around your local hardcore trails. The G-160 S pedals uphill remarkably well for such a burly, capable bike. You can even tackle most Irish downhill trails with it.

The 2016 G-160 S uses Whyte’s single-chainring specific frame design. Since the frame does not need to allow space for a second chainring and front derailleur, the chainstays are symmetrical and the main pivot is 20% wider than the previous dual-ring design. This makes for a much stiffer back end and less load on the main pivot bearings.
