This year we have further developed these bikes with the adoption of some of the technology previously used on our high-end bikes. Bars and stems are unified to 780mm (760mm on the compact 802 and 806) and a 40mm stem extension on all sizes of bike. We have also upgraded the rims so the whole line now uses WTB’s new ST i25 TCS 2.0
805 and 806 both come with Tubeless-ready wheels and the 801 and 802 have tubeless-compatible rims allowing the rider an easily upgrade to get a real performance gain. We have improved the forks on the 801 and 802 using RockShox’s Recon RL fork and on the 805 we have the same fork with a 15mm through axle. These forks not only have great performance, but they come with Fast Black stanchions bringing a more contemporary look to these bikes.
All the latest generation 800 series bikes feature wide-range 11-46 cassettes. This extra range brings technology only seen on bikes 4 times the price just 2 years ago. We have combined these wide range cassettes with Shimano Deore 10 speed shifting.
All 800 series bikes are compatible with easily fitted Whyte drop.it dropper posts - available in 125mm, 150mm and 170mm lengths.
