Season : 2020

Brand : Whyte

Code : W905V2OKL

Weight : 20KG

The award winning, MBR "Editors Choice" 10/10 905, defines the modern Trail Hardtail. The latest model adds RockShox's new Pike Select RC forks (with Charger RC damper and short 37mm offset) combined with 2.8" tubeless ready tyres to make this 905 the best yet.

The 905 brings ideas directly from our Whyte Enduro team, from the thicker V-Grip handlebard grips to the use of 170mm cranks, which bring the rider 5mm closer to the ground without compromising pedal clearance.

WTB STP i35 35mm wide TCS rims combined with Maxxis 2.8" high volume TR 3C compound rubber tyres, create more comfort, more grip and more fun.

The frame features UK specific innovations such as the "Get A Grip" seat post clamp system. This allows quick adjustment, fantastic weather proofing and a nice ergonomic lever which is easy to operate however cold your hands might be.

Mountain Bike Sizing Guide

Mountain Bikes tend to use the T-Shirt sizing of S, M, L etc. or will have the seat tube measurement in INCHES. Why mountain bikes are inches and road bikes are CM who knows, but the part of the frame being measured is the same.

As a rule of thumb if you can identify your size as Medium on one brand, you should use that as a starting point on another brand too.

If you already own a medium mountain bike for example and are comfortable with the sizing, start there.

What is your height? Your suggested bicycle size
Feet/Inches Centimetres Suggested Size
4'10" - 5'2" 148cm - 158cm X-Small (14-15")
5'2" - 5'6" 158cm - 168cm Small (15.5-17")
5'6" - 5'10" 168cm - 178cm Medium (17.5-18")
5'10" - 6'1" 178cm - 185cm Large (18.5-20")
6'1" - 6'4" 185cm - 193cm X-Large (20.5-22")
6'4" - 6'6" 193cm - 198cm XX-Large (22.5"+)

You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!


With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.
