Whyte Friston 2019 Mens Gravel Bike

Season : 2019

Brand : Whyte

Code : WFR

Weight : 0KG

The 2019 Whyte Friston is an all-terrain adventure gravel bike with a frame developed from Whyte's renown mountain bike geometry. Finished in Matt Petrol with internal cable routing and WTB tan sidewall tyres, the 2019 Friston is one good looking bike!

The Friston takes everything Whyte has learnt from making award-winning mountain bikes and puts that knowledge into a great value Gravel/Adventure bike package.

With hydraulic disc brakes, ground-breaking geometry and SRAM's Apex 1 groupset, the Friston is a great spec bike even though it is the lower spec of the two gravel bikes Whyte offer. A straight bladed carbon fork with a tapered steerer tube, wide WTB tyres and 15mm through axle, give this bike great front-end stiffness and steering precision.

It's equally at home riding your favourite bridle path, winter training or even commuting.


This Bike Is Perfect For

The rider who seeks the versatility of riding fast both on and off road with the added stability of a mountain bike geometry. The Friston is perfect for riding your local bridal paths and even some singletrack as well as commuting and winter training. If you want a bike that does it all in a sleek simplistic package, this is the bike for you.

With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

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.

Estimated Delivery Dates

Estimated Delivery Dates are given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.

The dates we provide are based on indications given by our suppliers. Whenever we get updated information from our suppliers we will endeavour to update the Estimated Delivery Dates provided on product pages.
