WINNER - Hardtail of the Year (£750 category) - MBR Magazine, 2018
"When it comes to on-trail performance it blows most rivals out of the water thanks to a frame sporting bang-up-to-date geometry and well-chosen components" - off-road.cc, 2018
If you are looking for a trail-ready bike at an affordable price tag then look no further than the 605 from Whyte. It is a capable hardtail, having had a complete overhaul for 2018. The design team have graced this model with a longer frame, a wider 740mm bar, a shorter stem and wider grippier tyres. This makes the 605 handle amazingly and corner like a dream.
This year’s model is fitted with a full Shimano groupset. The all new 2 by 9 drivetrain is all you need to tackle the undulating challenges of your favourite trails, and from the leading manufacturers in their field it is bound to give you years of trouble-free riding.
This bike bristles with Whyte’s clever UK design features to help tame our less than desirable climate. Their Get A Grip seatpost clamp system is not only weatherproof, with seals around the post and the frame to help prevent any mud or water damage, but also features an ergonomic lever that makes adjusting seat post height super easy even with the coldest of hands!
