Bulky tubing, maximum riding pleasure? The E-160 S with #federweg front travel is definitely ready to shred the full load of singletrack.
The Performance Line CX from Bosch shows impressively that they shouldn't be limited to DIY and household products. The Bosch motor takes away the fear of even the steepest ramps. The combination of a very natural riding feeling and a dynamic power delivery characterises the Bosch Performance Line CX. The well-tuned riding modes cater to bikers of all preferences. Whoever likes to go on long rides will be pleased with the very good range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the E-160 S in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (9000) .

Rough descents take away some of the fear thanks to the average chassis. As the bumps become faster and harder, the low-quality chassis could limit the descending fun quite early. The thick 38mm stanchions on the fork provide an extra dose of steering precision and performance. Thanks to the solid power, the SRAM brakes can be counted on in the upper class segment. With four pistons and big brake rotors, Whyte won't take any chances in that area. The average shifting components and accessories leave some tuning potential open. For most e-bikers, this should be an acceptable point. 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.

Conclusion


Expirience with the Whyte E-160 S

We believe that every bike on the market has its justification. However, when it comes to the E-160 S, our assessment of its geometry, equipment, and frame is rather disappointing. In the price range about 9000€, there are bikes that appeal to us more. Perhaps the aesthetics or image can still convince you.
