With MBR magazine (and our staff and many of our customers!) giving the 901 the accolade of being "the best trail hardtail bar none", you will be hard pressed to find a better stead for a singletrack blast. Especially in 2019. Because this year, the 901 has a new frame, roomier 2.8-inch tyres, a dropper post as standard and 4 Pot brakes.  And don't forget the confidence-inpsiring geometry.  We think the 2019 901 ticks all the boxes.

With MBR magazine (and our staff and many of our customers!) giving the 901 the accolade of being "the best trail hardtail bar none", you will be hard pressed to find a better stead for a singletrack blast. Especially in 2019. Because this year, the 901 comes with the award-winning 905 frame meaning more space for roomier tyres to boost the fun factor (we're now looking at a 2.8-inch Maxxis High Roller on the front and Rekon on the rear) as well as a dropper post as standard and trail-equalling 4 Pot brakes. And don't forget the confidence-inspiring geometry, the hallmark of Whyte's range.

Staff opinion: the 2019 901 has some great upgrades over the 2018 model, namely the fatter tyres (more control and more fun) and dropper post (great for confident descending - once you've used one, it feels like an essential!), and at £1,399 is a really good value option. You do miss out on the one by 1 by 12 Eagle drivetrain but the SRAM NX 1 x 11 gearing set up gives a really good spread of gears so you won't get stuck on the climbs.
