This year’s T-130 RS comes with some very exciting upgrades for 2018. Its multi award winning SCR single ring specific frame is even stiffer and lighter than before and handles superbly, taking you up and down any trail with finesse and confidence. And, graced with a Shimano XT 1 by 11 drivetrain with shadow technology, it has the gearing to tackle any undulating challenge the trails throw your way.
The T-130 RS also features a full width main pivot which works to increase torsional stiffness, helps extend bearing life and maximises suspension performance. More than capable WTB STp i29 rims with TR Maxxis tyres give exceptional levels of control. And, a more than capable Fox 34 Performance Elite fork, with its highly acclaimed FIT 4-damper, is massive suspension upgrade from its predecessors.
This more than capable bike has been finished off perfectly will all the finer details that we have come to love from Whyte. Huge mud clearance gives you plenty of scope to play through the winter, even in the British climate. Fully internal cable routing with seals prevents any water or mud from entering the frame. And, a weather proof clamping system on the seat post makes this bike ideal for anyone wanting a ride that will take them right through the winter with minimal maintenance requirements.
