Sram Apex 1
The Friston takes everything we've learnt from MTBs and puts that knowledge into a great value Gravel/Adventure bike package. With hydraulic discs, ground-breaking geometry and SRAM's innovative Apex 1 groupset.
We have applied our unique Whyte frame geometry to the Friston, creating a supremely versatile all-terrain bike. It's equally at home riding your favourite bridle path, winter training or even commuting.
A straight bladed carbon fork with a tapered steerer tube, internal hose routing and 15mm through axle, give this bike great front end stiffness and steering precision.
A truly ground-breaking Gravel/Adventure bike with MTB-inspired geometry, tubeless ready wheels and tyres, hydraulic disc brakes and SRAM's innovative Force 1 groupset - and a dropper post so you can make the most out of the geometry on the descents.
1 by 11
Whyte geometry makes this bike exceptionally competent and controllable off-road. "1 by 11" technology offers simplicity and efficiency that cannot be rivalled. Full hydraulic disc brakes add stopping power and control.
Whyte's straight bladed carbon fork with its tapered steerer tube and 15mm through axle gives this bike great front end stiffness and steering precision. Combined with an ultra-wide 500mm wide bar which allows the rider to truly exploit the radical geometry.
