The 2024 Whyte E-Lyte 140 Works Full Suspension Electric Mountain Bike is Whyte's lightest ever electric mountain bike at 16.4kg. It perfectly blends lightweight cross country/trail bike performance with the capability of full-fat eMTBs to deliver an unparalleled and uncompromised ride. With a total combined battery capacity of 650Wh, it has the range to do it all.

The ELyte 140 Works is built around a lightweight yet strong carbon fibre chassis that carefully packages Bosch's Performance Line SX mid-torque (55Nm), full power (600W) motor and the 400Wh internal battery. The Bosch PowerMore range extender has been positioned as low in the frame as possible to optimise the bike's centre of gravity.

The ELyte 140 Works comes with SRAM's top-shelf XX SL T-Type AXS 1x12 delivers flawless wireless electronic gearing; Fox Float Factory suspension units deliver the ultimate in suspension performance; SRAM Level Ultimate Stealth four-pot hydraulic disc brakes with 180mm rotors for rich, useable power; full-width 800mm wide RaceFace NEXT R bars for maximum control; a full 175mm drop KS Lev Ci post for real-world trail drop; and more.

This bike is perfect for

Electric Bike Updates and Diagnostics

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. 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.

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.
