Powerful, agile and balanced, the 2024 Whyte E-160 RSX Full Suspension Electric Mountain Bike is the ultimate all-rounder. Whether you’re thrashing the hills, racing e-enduro between the tapes or having a blast on back-country singletrack, E-160 RSX is engineered to give you the confidence to push the envelope, everywhere.

Whyte's Total Geometry approach gives the E-160 RSX a generous reach, reassuring head angle and short offset fork, making it the most confidence-inspiring, nimble e-bike Whyte have ever made. Whyte have given the E-160 RSX a rock-bottom centre of gravity by optimising the distribution of the battery and motor mass within the chassis. So you can expect exceptional cornering agility and a planted feel on even the choppiest terrain. You can also adjust the bike's geometry using its Shape.It Link ‘flip-chip’ (switchable from the stock 'High' setting to 'Low' to slacken the bike out by 0.6 degrees and lower the bottom bracket by 8mm) for even more gravity-focused handling.

The E-160 RSX comes with SRAM GX T-Type AXS 1x12 wireless electronic gearing, DT Swiss wheels, Maxxis tyres, Whyte custom-tuned Fox Performance Elite suspension, SRAM Code RSX brakes, Crankbrothers Highline dropper post, and more – all combined and tuned with the singular focus of inspiring your best, every ride.

As electric bikes have become more sophisticated it’s important to stay on top of updates. Just like your home computer or smart phone regular updates are now released for most electric bike systems. If you buy a bike from Cycles UK we will do electric bike updates and diagnostics you need free of charge.

Electric Bike Updates

Electric bike updates can help to improve battery life, tweak how the motor works and fix bugs and problems.

Electric Bike Motors Explained

Electric bikes have really come into their own in the last couple of years. Thanks to advances in electric bike motors and batteries. A couple of bike manufacturers, most notably Specialized, are making their own electric bike motors. The vast majority of bike companies are using the same motors. So, you will find exactly the same electric motor being used on bikes from different brands and at different price points. In this guide, we’ll take you through the main types of electric bike motors. Look at the differences between the most commonly used brands.

Electric Bike Hub Motors vs Mid-Drive Motors

Electric bikes tend to either come with a hub motor or a mid-drive motor. Mid-drive motors sit where the cranks and bottom bracket are on a bike and drive the cranks and chain around. Hub drive motors sit in the middle of the wheel and drive the wheel directly. Hub drive electric bikes are cheaper but less efficient, and less smooth, to ride.
