The 2023 Whyte E-160 RSX Enduro Electric Mountain Bike in Matt Black is the top of the range E-160 bike. It has been built as the ultimate race bike by Whyte’s Senior Design Engineer Sam Shucksmith, who just happens to be the current and two-time British Enduro Series Champion. It comes with Sam’s custom tuning of the Fox shocks, custom grips and a selection of the best parts available.

Whyte have always been known for pioneering geometry and suspension. The E-160 has been engineered around the central philosophy; that a lowered centre of gravity delivers exceptional cornering agility and confident handling on any terrain.

And thanks to a huge 750Wh battery and high power 85Nm Bosch Performance Line CX motor, you're geared up for maximum enjoyment on the trails.

The E-160 RSX comes with a 160mm travel Fox Float 38 fork and a Fox Float X Performance Elite DPS rear shock. 12 speed SRAM GX AXS wireless gears, SRAM Code RSC brakes, Hope wheels and a Crank Brothers dropper post complete the build.

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.
