The Whyte G-170 S Full Suspension Mountain Bike
Launched just earlier this year, the Whyte G-170 S is a smooth, composed and balanced bike that is easy to set-up and even easier to ride flat-out.
The Whyte G-170, as the name suggests comes with 170mm of suspension up front. The frame on the G-170 S is made from 6061-T6 aluminium but its shares the same geometry and suspension as the more expensive moulded carbon models. It as clearance for up to 2.8” tyres due to the Boost dropout spacing’s.
The G-170 S benefits from Whyte’s Symmetrical Chain Stays (SCS) and the stiffness benefits of the wider pivot stance that goes with them. If you want the added security of a chain device, the G-170 S frame comes with ISCG 05 mounts on the BB shell for fitting one. The rear shock is provide by the latest Metric RockShox Deluxe R shock, Which eliminates the lower shock bushing for increased sensitivity.
When it comes to the drivetrain on the Whyte G-170, it is SRAM all the way, a 30T Single ring is matched up with a 11- 42T 11 speed cassette at the back. Offering a wide range of gears and slick shifting.
The Whyte G-170 S makes a fantastic enduro bike and is great value for the money. The suspension is superbly tuned so is really easy to set up. Even with its 170mm of travel at both ends it doesn’t bob much under power, so you can ride it up hill too.
The new G-170 S is smooth, composed and well balanced. It is very easy to set-up and is great to ride flat-out, and you won’t feel like your lugging a 170mm anchor up every climb.
Overall the Whyte G-170 is a great addition to Whyte's range of full Suspension Bikes. If you would like to purchase a 2018 Whyte G-170 or any other Full Suspension please contact our sales team on 01704 835 720 or buy direct on our website www.formbycycles.co.uk
