MBR Magazine December 2017
10/10 'best in test' review;
“Whyte claims that this is the best 905 it’s ever built, and we agree. It’s also the best hardtail we’ve ridden, period, and easily deserving of a perfect 10 rating” – Winner best in test, 10/10- review of the Whyte 905 in the December issue of mbr, out now.
“The Whyte 905 also carves corners, boosts jumps and rockets up climbs better than any hardtail that's come before it. So once again Whyte has delivered the blueprint for the next generation.”
A Modern Trail Hardtail
The new 905 defines the modern Trail Hardtail. Its stripped back SCR frame, the all new RockShox Revelation fork and the 2.8" tyres make this the best 905 Whyte have ever built.
Whyte Enduro Team
The new 905 brings ideas directly from our Whyte Enduro team, from the thicker V-Grips to the use of 170mm cranks to bring the rider 5mm closer to the ground without compromising pedal clearance.
