Description Over 3 years in the developing and testing whyte's designers were waiting for the right system to base their E bike around.
As alway with Ian Alexander, whyte chief designer, handling and geometry were always centre stage in designing any bike and E-bikes were no exception.Choice of motor and battery were key to this and with early access to the Bosch Gen 4 motor whyte were able to incorporate this excellent system into their class leading geometry.

Having a small efficient motor that could be rotated around to get the right fit into the frame allowed the back end to be kept short whilst at the same time keeping the battery as low as possible in the frame. The large 625Wh battery sits a lot lower than other makes of bike, which results in a much lower centre of gravity and this is part of what makes the bike handle so well. Whyte claim that its the best handling bike they have ever made!

The frame features the Latest generation Whyte suspension kinematics and hardware, with Metric shock and coil-over compatibility, the lower centre of gravity giving Ultra-Low Polar Moments of Inertia in Pitch, Yaw and Roll, means exceptional manoeuvrability and unparalleled and un-compromised handling.

The frame is super stiff and strong as the custom downtube has no cutouts, the battery is inserted from below.

Whyte early one realised that 27.5" wheels offered the best strength for the rigours of e-bike usage and also spec tyres that have stiff reinforced sidewalls to cope with the demands of e-bikes.

The brand new high-torque Bosch Gen 4 motor is super-compact with exceptionally smooth power delivery which simulates normal pedalling, and range anxiety shouldn't be an issue as they fit a powerful 625Wh battery as standard. This is a standard bosch unit offering excellent backup and future proofing. An optional fast charger will give a full charge in 3.7 hours.

Bosch's new progressive eMTB mode modulates dynamically between Tour and Turbo and adjusts the support according to the riding situation and the amount of pressure you put on the pedals, respectively from 140% to 340%.

For 2021 the motor now has more power.

With full support from your local dealer this bike look to be popular this year!
