- Specification / Details
With its all-new sculpted carbon front triangle the RS certainly looks the part. Add Eagle GX, the brand new Rockshox Pike and Deluxe suspension and you’ve got the fastest trail bike we’ve ever made.
S stands for Switch - the ability to fit 650b wheels with 2.8” tyres and still have UK levels mud clearance. For 2018 Whyte will launch wheel kits that are ready to switch into your bike in the time it takes to go back to your car and change the Eagle cassette.
There’s a choice of Carbon or Alloy wheel kits. Maxxis 3C compound is peerless in the level of front end grip it provides. The 29mm wide rims create a stable bead platform for these tyres so you can push them right to the limit.
Tim's first impression on our demo: "First ride of the new S-150 Carbon RS last night. The handling of this bike is worlds in front of all 29ers before it! Fast, super agile and flickable and really easy to pop too. I even left it in the open setting for most of the ride. Well done Whyte, that custom offset and new suspension platform work an absolute treat. But don’t take my word for it, come down and hire the bike for yourself. You can even take out the Titan light with it too!"
