Magnifier BB30 ROCKSHOX SID FORK CARBON FIBRE FRAME
BB30
BB30 is the new standard for bottom brackets. The bearings are pressed directly into the frame for a lighter and stiffer interface between the crank and the frame. The axle of the crank can also be larger - allowing the use of aluminium for even lighter weight, but maintaining (or improving) the stiffness.
ROCKSHOX SID FORK
Rockshox Sid Race suspension fork with 100mm of travel and handlebar mounted Push-Loc motion control.
CARBON FIBRE FRAME
The precision and control required to make a Whyte carbon frame means that the highest standards of manufacturing control are applied. Whyte carbon frames are hand made by senior composite experts that are only allowed to work on complex layup designs like Whyte's frames after years of training and certification to the highest standards.

What Mountain Bike - April 09

We're not going to tell you the Whyte 19 is well worth its price tag, because there are far more sensible - and only slightly heavier - versions of this and other carbon-framed race bikes available for less. But as a 'no compromise' XTR equipped 20lb package, you might not find a bike that offers such an enjoyable ride on trails that are more technical than a cross-country race course. It almost seems wrong to be having so much carefree fun on a 20lb bike.

"To be perfectly honest, the Whyte 19 is probably the most enjoyable 20lb bike we have ever tested"
