Exceptionally Versatile and Capable

The Whyte also employs not only 12mm through axles, but super smooth tubeless tires that are all-mighty fast.  While disc brakes and the ability to fit full length mud guards makes it arguably the most versatile and capable tarmac bike they have ever made.

The Ideal UK Bike Setup

Whether you’re commuting longer distances, winter training or entering summer sportifs, the Wessex Road Disc range offers Cyclocross durability with Wessex modern geometry.
