The much-anticipated S-150 C Works from Whyte is here, and it absolutely does not disappoint. This incredible bike takes all the best bits of the T-130 and adds on some even more impressive features. Not satisfied with the 140mm of travel that the RockShox Pike fork usually comes with, Whyte asked them to create a new fork with 150mm of travel. They then paired this with Deluxe rear suspension and SRAM’s Eagle GX 12-speed drivetrain to create the fastest trail bike they have ever made!
With 29" wheels the S-150 C Works rolls fast, and Whyte have embraced that. They have given it seriously quick steering by reducing the fork offset, helping you descend technical terrain with serious agility. But, if you did want to swap out the 29" tyres, the S-150 C Works also allows you to ride on a 650b wheel with 2.8" tyres.
As a British company, Whyte know how to make a bike for the English weather. The S-150 C Works has huge amounts of mud clearance, even with 2.8" tyres, to keep you rolling through the wettest of winters. They also run full internal cable routing with plugs to prevent any mud or grit from getting inside the frame. This bike will ride incredibly well throughout the winter period, remaining as maintenance free as possible.
