- Specification / Details
Whyte's designers came up with the ideal British road bike with the Wessex. Developed specifically for riding on all road surfaces, the Wessex uses the very latest in tubeless-ready, high air volume 30c Schwalbe tyres on 21mm wide Easton AR rims.
The road.cc Endurance Bike of the Year and recipient of a European Design and Innovation Award, the Wessex delivers previously unimaginable levels of grip, confidence and control, whatever the weather.
12mm through axles, tubeless tyres, disc brakes and the ability to fit full length mud guards makes the Wessex arguably the most versatile and capable carbon road bike Whyte has ever made.
