"A versatile bike that instils confidence, the Whyte also delivers an increased fun-factor" - MBUK

The 2024 Whyte 529 Hardtail Mountain Bike is a great value, lightweight and capable trail hardtail with award-winning handling. It’s your perfect partner on your favourite singletrack, trail centre loops or epic all-day rides in the hills. Using the same perfect 10/10 MBR test-winning frame as the flagship 629 trail hardtail, the 529 delivers confidence-inspiring and capable handling so you can always ride your best. 

By blending progressive 29er geometry together with specially curated components and tyre choice, the 529 to delivers the very best handling and ride experience possible. Both exhilarating and confidence-inspiring, the 529 is fast out of corners and up climbs, but never freaks out when you’re pushing it, sending drops, or sliding turns faster than ever. Short offset forks and custom Whyte short stem, bars and grips complete your connection to the feisty but flowing, calm but hard-charging character that pro test riders and trail riders love.

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.
