Whyte full suspension bikes
Whyte started out in the early nineties designing the Marin fullsuspesnion bikes in the UK. These were soon being ridden world wide. Whyte then decided to create their own bikes. Less constrained by the demands and price points of a US brand like Mairn Whyte could produce what ever it liked and began to pioneer some unique designs that are now common to all British brands.

Designers Notes: M-109
Quad-4 gives us the opportunity to design an XC race and marathon full suspension 29er with correctly proportioned geometry. Uniquely, we have engineered what no one yet has achieved, Genuine progressive 26” geometry for the 29er full-suspension age...
Whyte’s 29er XC geometry keeps the back of the bike as short as possible, uniquely combining 26” agility with 29er momentum for speed and control.
The M109 combines Whyte's X-C 209 custom wheelset and Maxxis' market-leading high air volume Ikon tyres for an exceptional lightweight wheel package - essential for a nimble feel on any 29er.
Whyte set out to improve the 146 still further: A re-developed chassis yielding an 11% stiffer torsional construction to complement the latest 34mm Fox Forks. Sram’s revolutionary 1x11 XX1 drivetrain combines with a spec that’s set-up to give the Trail Rider the ultimate bike. The still avant-garde geometry sets this bike apart when it comes to out and out trail riding - going up as well as it goes down!
A full carbon tapered head tube gives us fantastic stiffness which delivers very accurate tracking and steering performance in both low and high speed use, for 2013 we have added a tube to link the top tube with the down tube creating even more torsional stiffness.
SRAM new XXI 1 by 11 Group set really moves the trail bike spec forward, now giving a huge 10-42 tooth spread of gears.
With the same frame, 34mm Fox Forks and Sram drivetrain as the Whtye 146 XI this bike is kitted up for the ultimate trail-rider.
A full carbon tapered headtube gives us fantastic stiffness which delivers very accurate tracking and steering performance in both low and high speed use and for 2013 we have added a tube to link the Top Tube with the Down Tube increasing torsional stiffness. 146mm of rear suspension travel.
