Hit any popular trail centre and you’ll see an ever growing number of bikes from Whyte. Designed in the north Cotswolds here in the UK, they’ve very quickly become a brand whose frame designs have gained a huge amount of respect.
‘Progressive geometry’ is a phrase thrown around repeatedly at the moment but there really are only a few brands that have instilled this thinking throughout their range – not just on the longer travel bikes. The T-130 trail bikes are a great example of this and really are an exceptional design.
As the model name suggests, the frame dishes out 130mm of rear wheel travel, matched up front by a fork dishing out the same. Wheel size is 27.5” with Whyte offering the T-129 for those wanting the larger 29” wheels on a trail bike.
