Whether you’re a bigger rider or just into bigger mileages and higher speeds, nothing can match 29er wheels for making tough trails easy and long climbs effortless. What makes our 529 and 629 bikes totally different from the rest is that we teamed these advantages with our updated award-winning Trail Geometry and an all new thru-axle Boost frame to let you take that extra speed and efficiency onto the toughest, most technical trails.
Single chain-ring specific frames with shorter and wider-set chain-stays mean dynamic handling and sequential shifting simplicity. Custom reduced 42mm offset 120mm travel thru-axle forks bring the benefits of this performance-enhancing innovation, pioneered last year on the S-150, to a new trail-riding 29er hardtail audience. Get A Grip seat clamps mean instant full post drop, chainstay mounted brakes deliver a smoother ride and either Shimano or SRAM 1x gearing, using our smooth BBX internal routing, make these naturally high velocity rides massively versatile too.
So, whether you’re racing, using your skills to hunt thrills or heading far into the hills, there’s a very big advantage to be gained by thinking big when you think Whyte.
Tyre and Rim specs have been upgraded to deal with the new levels of performance available from the frame, with Gripper Maxxis tyres combined with WTB ST i25 TCS 2.0 rims.
780mm wide bars and 40mm extension stems make these cockpits truly modern. The 529 gets a 11-46 wide range cassette paired to Shimano Deore shifting and the 629 goes full NX Eagle.
With the addition of our BBX cable entry system, both bikes are easily upgradeable to the Whyte drop.it seat posts available in 125mm, 150mm and 170mm lengths.
These bikes represent the very latest thinking in hardtail design and Whyte is offering a truly different choice for the 29er hardtail customer.
