From long distance marathon rides to a high-speed rip around a local trail centre, the S-120 will reset what riders can expect from a 120mm bike.
Kinematics are crucial in shorter travel bikes. For the all-new S-120, we use our latest QUAD suspension architecture. The kinematics of QUAD have been improved in two key ways – the dynamic performance of the leverage ratio and the use of the latest generation of Metric shock technology for maximum telescopic stiffness and performance.
The new S-120 benefits from our latest thinking on both static and dynamic geometry. On the trail this means our best-ever climbing and descending 120mm travel platform.
Whyte’s latest short offset geometry system uses a new generation of reduced offset forks. It increases the Trail for improved steering stability, and moves the mass of the fork and wheel closer to the steering axis for a more neutral steering feel.
“If you want a proper pinner that charges enduro-hard on descents but is still efficient enough to hold its own in a marathon XC situation, Whyte’s new 120mm 29er literally stretches what you can expect from a short-travel bike” – Bike Radar
