The RS uses the same highly developed frame as the Works bike, as used by Whyte's International EWS race team. This year we've gone big–the 29er wheels make this the fastest Gravity bike we've ever created.
This bike is ready for anything you want to throw at it, from hard-core trail riding to EWS Enduro racing. With its open front triangle design it is possible to fit various options of rear shock including coil shocks and still carry a full size water bottle.
The G-170C RS 29er has extra width built into the rear chainstays allowing the rider to fully exploit future developments in wide high volume tyres up to up to 29 x 2.5" and maintain mud clearance.
