Bulky tubing, maximum riding pleasure? The E-160 S 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. Steep ramps are no problem for the Bosch motor. Additionally, the Bosch Performance Line CX stands out with a very well-rounded riding feeling and a dynamic power delivery. The well-tuned riding modes cater to bikers of all preferences. 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 S in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (9000) .

Rough descents take away some of the fear thanks to the average chassis. The low-grade chassis transfers shocks relatively clearly to the biker. The thick 38mm stanchions on the fork provide an extra dose of steering precision and performance. At the brakes, Whyte instals upper class brakes with four pistons and large brake rotors from SRAM. At the drivetrain components and the rest of the parts, Whyte uses average parts. The head tube angle falls very flat with °. The bottom bracket is also very low. The geometry thus clearly drifts into the extreme. Experienced full-throttle shredders will find this geo the stuff of happiness. Less experienced riders might be better off with a more moderate geometry.

Value for money

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.
