The 2023 Whyte 901 V5 Hardtail Mountain Bike in Satin Bronze is all about the geometry. Skilled riders and magazine reviewers know you don’t need a rear shock to get rad on the toughest trails. You just need a Whyte 900 series hardtail. Already hailed as the greatest Trail Hardtail ever, Whyte have amped up the ability right through the range with their latest generation short offset geometry, so you can charge climbs, dominate descents and rip out of corners. The latest 901 features exactly the same frame as the 10/10 award winning 905.

The 901 V5 comes with high performance trail-ready specification including TRP's excellent 4 piston Slate Evo brakes for maximum stopping power and a RAGEi dropper post with an alloy South Paw remote to easily tune your saddle height on the move without having to move your hands. The upgraded SRAM SX 12 speed Eagle drivetrain with a massive 11-50t cassette gives the rider a huge gear range to cope with whatever the trail has in store.

This bike is perfect for

Mountain bikers who are looking for the best hardtail mountain bikes in the world, only at a slightly more affordable price.

  • Whyte’s award winning trail geometry with the same frame as the 905
  • 5" Wheels for added agility
  • Rockshox 35 Gold RL 130mm travel forks
  • 12 Speed SRAM SX Eagle gearing

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.
