QUANTITY

Designed to be the ultimate ‘charge it up and charge any trail’ e-bike, the Whyte e-160 resets the rules for all day, get on and go wild riding.  

We’ve matched our brand-new frame with a rail mounted maximum capacity 750Wh Bosch battery Bosch Performance Line CX motor and smart system control suite with SRAM’s wireless GX AXS shifting. That means race dominating power with all day range, modular display options, the complete ride Bosch eBike Flow app and the fastest, slickest, cleanest gearing available. 

What really pushes our e-bikes to the next level according to multiple awards, top reviews and absolutely stoked riders is our Total Geometry ride dynamic. Our unique frame layout puts the centre of gravity lower and more centralised to combine unshakably gripped trail connection and instantly reactive, corner flicking, apex clipping geometry. Add the perfect Maxxis tyre combination, Fox Performance suspension custom tuned by a multiple UK series and National Enduro champion (who is also our lead designer - Sam Shucksmith) and our own adjustable stroke dropper and you’re not going to find a better riding mid travel e-MTB. Especially as the RS runs an MX style 27.5in rear wheel as standard for the steeziest scrub and schralp heroics. 

Please note: our custom motor covers are not currently compatible with the aftermarket Bosch eBike Alarm and Connect module to add bike tracking and alarm functionality to your Smart System bike.

High Power - Low Centre of Gravity

The new 85Nm Performance Line CX drive unit and Bosch’s largest capacity 750Wh battery are positioned to give an ultra-low centre of gravity, delivering responsive and intuitive power with the most agile handling imaginable.

Tested by the Fastest Racers

Our Senior Design Engineer Sam Shucksmith, the current and two-time British Enduro Series Champion is dedicated to researching and developing the ultimate suspension tune. He has set up the best, most optimised suspension performance for the e-160 to give you the best grip, confidence and control.
