The 2023 Whyte E-160 S 27.5" Enduro Electric Mountain Bike in Gloss Turquoise is the entry level bike in the new E-160 range but it is still a fully featured bike which will take your riding to the next level.
Whyte have always been known for pioneering geometry and suspension. The E-160 has been tuned by Whyte’s Senior Design Engineer Sam Shucksmith, the current and two-time British Enduro Series Champion. 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. Whyte’s unique solution to mounting the motor and battery mass within the chassis gives uncompromised flow on the trails. 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.
As the name suggests the E-160 S 27.5” comes with 27.5” wheels to provide better handling on small and xsmall size frames. It comes fitted with a 160mm travel RockShox ZEB fork and Rockshox Deluxe Select+ rear shock. Shimano Deore XT 11 speed running gear and TRP Trail Evo along with WTB tubeless ready wheels and Whyte’s own dropper post complete the build.
This bike is perfect for
Smaller riders who want a perfectly balanced electric bike for enduro and gravity focussed riding. With a powerful Bosh motor and 750wh battery you can do as many runs as you like.
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.
