The 2022 Whyte 604 v3 Hardtail Mountain Bike in Matt Diesel is the middle bike in Whyte’s 600 series trail hardtails. These UK designed bikes pack a real Trail punch and offer the perfect introduction to the performance benefits of Whyte. The 604 is classed as a 'compact' bike and comes with tweaked geometry for shorter riders.
Whyte are known for their award winning UK designed trail hardtail mountain bikes. The 604 uses the standard Whyte formula of 120mm forks and 27.5” wheels on a carefully designed frame designed to excel on steep and technical UK trails. All 600 series bikes feature tidy and reliable internal cable and hose routing with Whyte’s proprietary BBX access port, meaning easier maintenance and simple upgrading to a Whyte drop.it seatpost.
The 604 comes with a 120mm travel SR Suntour XCR-LO fork and 2x9 speed Shimano drivetrain to give you plenty of gearing options. Tektro hydraulic brakes give reliable stopping power and tubeless compatible rims give an easy platform to upgrade.
This bike is perfect for
Smaller mountain bikers who want a properly sorted UK trail hardtail with the latest tried and tested parts at a reasonable price.
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.
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.
