We’ve grown up riding and racing the tough roads and tougher weather of Britain, but only now have we been able to make the perfect bike for not just surviving but thriving in these conditions.
The latest research proves that tubeless 30mm tyres are as fast as skinnier tyres on typically rough road surfaces but far more surefooted and comfortable. The precise fingertip feedback of hydraulic disc brakes means assured descending confidence whatever the last cloud or tractor dumped on the next corner. Wide range gearing lets you spin efficiently where you used to struggle, so you hit hill after hill fresh not broken.
A collection of components is useless without the frame to match though, so in the words of our former Elite, UCI ranked road racing designer Ian, we’ve created the ultimate “21st century British road bike.” Light, aerodynamic and precise steering for searing speed, but with the rear stay and 27.2mm seat post compliance to fight fatigue all day. Naturally it’s got ample clearances for large volume tyres and all the weather sealed, non frame-rubbing DOX internal cable routing wisdom of our MTBs. We’ve even designed our own flush-fit mudguards because you’re never far from rain even in July and we know this is a bike you’ll want to ride every day for sportives, Strava, fitness or just because serious performance is seriously fun.
The Ideal British Road Bike
The all new Wessex is conceived to be the ideal British road bike. Developed and specified for riding on all road surfaces, the Wessex uses the very latest in tubeless ready, high air volume Schwalbe tyres on 21mm wide Easton AR rims.
Any Road, Every Day
Whether you're commuting longer distances, winter training or entering summer sportifs, the Whyte Road Disc range offers Cyclo Cross durability with pure Road geometry.
Exceptionally Versatile and Capable
12mm through axles, tubeless tyres, disc brakes and the ability to fit full length mud guards makes the Wessex arguably the most versatile and capable carbon road bike we have ever made.
