WHYTE 529 trail mountain bike



Ride far, have fun
Our great value 529 is a fast, lightweight and capable trail hardtail with award-winning handling that’s your perfect partner on your favourite singletrack, trail centre loops or epic all-day rides in the hills. Using the same perfect 10/10 MBR test-winning frame as our flagship 629 trail hardtail, the 529 delivers confidence-inspiring and capbale handling so you can always ride your best, combined with low weight and smooth-rolling 29er wheels to cover ground quickly and efficiently.

– Light yet tough 6061 T6 hydroformed, multi-butted Singe Chain Ring (1X) frame.
– 120mm RockShox Recon RL suspension fork.
– Capable, smooth-rolling 29er wheels + grippy Maxxis tyres.
– SRAM SX Eagle 1x12 transmission (32T chainring x 11-50 cassette).
– Tektro M535 four-piston hydraulic disc brakes (180mm rotors front + rear).
– KS dropper post (with frame size-specific drop).

Engineered to perform – and last

To ensure that living with it for the long-haul is as good an experience as riding it, we’ve loaded the 529 with all the bad-weather-beating and practical features possible to keep it running brilliantly ride after rider, and year after year. That includes weather sealing the internally routed control cable ports and seat post collar to keep the water and muck where it belongs – outside; maximizing mud clearances – as well as allowing space for up to 2.6in tyres in the rear – thanks to our big-tyre friendly Single Chain Ring frame design; as well as a custom chainstay guard to both protect the frame from chain slap damage and silent your ride.

Ride faster and smoother

Bigger diameter 29in (aka ‘29er’) wheels boost performance in several ways. Their larger size effectively shrinks every bump, so they can roll over rough terrain faster and smoother so you can go further, with less fatigue and more control. They also have more gyroscopic stability so you can hold your line better when things get loose, adding more control and confidence.
