Whyte have improved the 2017 T-130 RS over the award-winning 2016 model. The new version gets more grip thanks to wider rims and tyres. Suspension performance benefits from the Fox 34 fork with their new GRIP damper.
The rear wheel gets a mudproof Hope Pro 4 hub. Both front and back end are boost width for stronger wheels.
It also features Whyte’s single ring specific frame with mega stiff symetrical chainstays, a full width main pivot for extended bearing life and maximised suspension performance.

“Whyte’s T-130s all deliver a tight, highly controlled ride, top kit and killer geometry packages and the RS is a real ripper.”
