10 of the best new bikes
Whyte 29er CS
The hottest trend in mountain bikes right now is 29in rims, which roll faster over rough terrain than the usual 26in. But there’s more to the Whyte 29er CS than just big wheels: the frame is crafted from carbon-fibre to be ultra-light and torsionally stiff for efficient pedalling, yet also vertically compliant so it's comfy enough to ride all day.
Factor in a SRAM X0 transmission, Easton wheels and a weight of just 10.6kg (23.4lbs), and you've got a true off-road rocket.
