Bulky tubing, maximum riding pleasure? The E-160 RSX with #federweg front travel is definitely ready to shred the full load of singletrack.
Bosch is the major motor manufacturer in the EMTB world, alongside Shimano - and it's no surprise, as the Performance Line CX shows. The Bosch motor climbs steep ramps effortlessly. The very natural riding feeling combines the Bosch Performance Line CX with a dynamic power delivery. Achieving such a perfect balance between natural support and power is something few other engines can do. Thanks to the very good range, you should no longer have any range problems even on very long tours.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the E-160 RSX in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (11000) .

Even the most treacherous downhill runs are effortlessly handled by the high-end Fox chassis. The thick 38mm stanchions on the fork provide an extra dose of steering precision and performance. When it comes to the brakes, Whyte reaches for the top shelf and instals premium brakes with four pistons and large brake rotors from SRAM. At the drive components and the remaining parts, Whyte uses very good parts. With the °_angle head tube angle and the super low bottom bracket, Whyte redefines the boundaries of modern geometry. Most manufacturers don't dare to venture into such extreme terrain when it comes to geometry. With weight, the E-160 RSX is generally one of the heavier e-bikes on the market.

Conclusion


Expirience with the Whyte E-160 RSX

There are certainly reasons why one should consider buying this E-MTB. Perhaps one is drawn to its appearance, the brand's image, or having a reliable local dealer. All of these factors can influence the purchasing decision. However, when looking at the hard facts, we must unfortunately say that the E-160 RSX doesn't quite meet our taste.
