The G-170 S V2 2020 is the ideal full suspension bike for any enduro rider that wants value for money and a frame that is easy to upgrade and update. In 2019, the bike's previous version was chosen as 'Editor’s Choice' by MBR after scoring 10/10 in their review as well as winning 'Best Value MTB' in Pinkbike's awards.
This V2 iteration has everything great about its award-winning predecessor but also features some game changing upgrades to make it even better. With a RockShox Lyrik Select RC fork and a Charger 2 damper this version has an extra 10mm of travel on the front, bringing the total up to 180mm. Pair this with a RockShox Deluxe Select rear shock offering 170mm of travel and you have a full suspension bike that's ready for every trail. The geometry of its aluminium frame creates a more stable feel on even the steepest descents thanks to being lower and slacker. The G-170 S geometry also allows for a lower sense of gravity which allows you more grip and control around corners. Compact seat-tubes allow all riders to select their ideal size with their preferred reach which facilitates a nimbler ride. You can also expect a playful and agile ride feel from this bike due to the especially short back end
When it comes to rolling power, front and rear specific TCS tyres work alongside WTB ST i29mm 2.0 rims to give neutral handling and ultimately less drag. Whyte's design team new this would be a bike that a rider may want to adjust over time so the rear chainstays have space for up to 27.5 x 2.8inch tyres and they included extra mud clearance. The components chosen are all simple but effective and reliable. These include a single chainring with SRAM Eagle 1×12 transmission and SRAM Guide GE 4 Pot brakes for efficient stopping power.
All Whyte bikes are designed for UK weather and the G-170 S V2 2020 is no exception. With huge amounts of mud clearance, a sealed InterGrip seatpost and internal
