The Whyte Glencoe is the latest addition to Whyte’s Gravel bike range and comes in at a lower price point than the Friston and Gisburn, making getting off road even easier. It’s a bike that defines the emerging Gravel bike category. Rolling along on smooth tarmac - but then when the going gets tough the Glencoe gets going and really comes into its own.
The Glencoe is surprisingly smooth and quiet even on the roughest roads. The bike encourages you to push forward where normally you would be inclined to pull back helping you to carry more speed, grip and confidence into the bend. It has a long and stable frame geometry, specifically tuned for this wheel size, combined with shorter stem, wider bars and increased steering trail, similar to what you might find on a hardtail bike it creates a handling formula with huge gains in high speed stability on the roughest terrain. The tough 650b wheels, complete with their massive-air-volume, next-generation tubeless 47c tyres, provide supple grip without any slowing in pace.

Give you huge levels of comfort and security on even the roughest road and gravel surfaces.
