The T-140 RS 29er is Whyte's lightest, fastest and most versatile full-suspension mountain bike. Whether you're embarking on epic long rides, taming technical trails, or hitting up the bike park, this is the bike to conquer it all.

The mid-travel suspension platform combines 140mm front travel with 135mm rear travel, delivering a sought-after blend of big hit performance and pedalling efficiency. Its the kind of balanced ride that will have you attacking every trail with confidence and speed but still getting that rush of involvement and reward. It is widely accepted that 29er wheels are the go-to wheel size if you prioritise out-and-out speed and performance. Rolling on this larger wheel size, the T-140 29er makes light work of roots, rocks, and anything else the trail throws your way.

On this RS model, you get award-winning Fox Performance Elite 34 fork and Float rear shock. The suspension performance is taken to the max with further custom tuning by Whyte's enduro-winning engineers, for unparalleled traction through the loosest turns and toughest climbs.

This bike is perfect for

Mountain bikers who want a do-it all bike that can handle fast cross country rides as well as trips to the bike park.

Key Features
  • Fast rolling 29" wheels
  • Fox shocks front and rear
  • SRAM Eagle gearing and Guide brakes

Mountain Bike Buying Guide

Mountain biking is an incredibly diverse sport. Mountain bikes now come in three main flavours. They are XC, Trail and Enduro.

XC – short for cross country, are quick race bikes. They will normally have 29” wheels and come with 100mm of suspension. If you are mainly going to be riding bridleways and natural trails in the South East of England, where our shops are, an XC bike will be the quickest and most efficient option.

Trail – these bikes are designed to be pedalled up and down hill and for use on bridleways and natural trails, but also at dedicated trail centres. They normally come with 130mm or 140mm of suspension travel and can have either 27.5” or 29” wheels, but 29” is quickly becoming the norm. Trail bikes are good all-rounders. They won’t be as fast as an XC bike on the flat but they can handle a lot more challenging terrain, and a few jumps. If you plan on taking your bike to trail centres in Wales, or to the Alps, then a trail bike may be your best option.

Enduro – enduro racing is a thing in and of itself but many people buy enduro bikes for ‘aggressive’ trail riding and uplift days at places like Bike Park Wales. This generally means challenging downhill trails with some big jumps. With around 160mm of suspension travel enduro bikes can take some big hits. They are designed to be efficient enough to pedal up hills but really come into their own when pointed downhill. You get enduro bikes in either 27.5” or 29” wheel sizes as well as mullet setups of 29 at the front and 27.5 at the back.


Men’s and women’s mountain bikes

Nearly all the mountain bikes we sell are now unisex. All of the big brands have gradually stopped doing dedicated men’s and women’s bikes over the last few years. Instead they are focussed on producing bikes in a bigger range of sizes. So, for instance, the Trek Marlin 5 is a unisex bike that now comes in sizes from XXS to XXL large. This means it will fit riders from 4’ 5” to 6’ 5” and everything in between.
