The 2024 Whyte E-160 S Full Suspension Electric Mountain Bike is the entry level E-160 bike. With its super low centre of gravity and Whyte Total Geometry handling the E-160 S has all the unique Whyte engineering innovations of the E-160 platform wrapped up in a high value build.
Whyte's Total Geometry approach gives the E-160 S a generous reach, reassuring head angle and short offset fork, making it the most confidence-inspiring, nimble e-bike they’ve ever made. Whyte have also given the E-160 S 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’ geometry adjust (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.
With its huge 750Wh battery and high power 85Nm Bosch Performance Line CX motor, Whyte's E-160 S ensures you're geared up for maximum enjoyment on the trails, wherever you go. They've also fitted exactly the componentry you need to inspire you to take your riding further: fully wireless and electronic SRAM AXS GX 1x12 gearing delivers instant shifting through all conditions, custom-tuned RockShox suspension keeps you connected and in control on the trail, and four-piston SRAM brakes deliver reliable power through all weathers.
Mountain bikers who want the award winning geometry and handling that Whyte are known for combined with reliable power from Bosch and a huge 750WH battery for all-day riding.
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 can help to improve battery life, tweak how the motor works and fix bugs and problems. Most systems will require you to plug your bike into some specialist software at an authorised dealer. At Cycles UK we are authorised dealers for top electric bike brands including Specialized, Trek, Orbea, Whyte, Cannondale and Raleigh. As a result our stores have the software and hardware to run updates on all the major electric bike systems including Bosch, Shimano and Ebikemotion.
We now provide free updates and diagnostics for life on any electric bike purchased from Cycles UK.
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 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.
We understand that price is important, so we regularly price-check our competitors to make sure we have the best offers available. We recognise that we will not always be the cheapest, so if you see the same product cheaper from any of our competitors then please get in touch via the form below and we will do our best to match any reasonable advertised price.
