VERSATILITY & VELOCITY
Incredibly confident with a voracious appetite for speed, the S-120 is an exceptionally versatile all-round MTB using our new 120mm 29er Trail platform. Building on the ground-breaking T-129, its superb suspension and technical trail handling redefines what you can expect from a 120mm bike, whether you’re powering up the climbs, shredding the trail or charging the descents.
"Versatility and velocity – not only did we smash out some climbing KOMs on Strava, but it also took the flat-out descents of the ‘Ard Moors Enduro in its stride…" MBUK
"This bike is just an absolute flat-out charger. More rally car than monster truck, it’s visceral, agile and involving… The most compelling thing I can say is that if I had to hang up the GoPro, stop reviewing right now and had to pick a bike to take with me as a keeper, it would be this bike" Guy Kesteven
Our brand-new S-120 frame takes everything we learnt from developing the multi-award-winning S-150 suspension system and applies it to this immensely capable new 120mm platform.
The S-120 is a perfect replacement for the iconic T129, which gave Whyte its 1st Bike Of The Year award. Designed to be an all-round XC/Trail bike from epic marathons to a flat our blast down your local single track, this bike will allow you to do it all.
The S-120 geometry was design to have a short 44mm offset fork and this combined with the all new Fox 34 SC gives amazing handling. This fork was designed to be the ultimate Trail 120mm 29er fork.
