When selecting our rental fleet, we knew that we needed a brand of bike that could take an absolute beating and roll back in to base with gas still in the tank. We also wanted to instil confidence in our guests with a nimble and surefooted ride whilst they experience our epic terrain – some for the very first time.
Although relatively new to the scene in New Zealand, Whyte has a 25-year reputation on their British home soil for reliable and hard-wearing bikes with a premium build quality and award-winning ride character.

Whyte have become renowned for progressive thinking and unique frame design. From pioneering reduced fork off-set in the late 90s (with the old-school PRST-1), to their current day models featuring ground breaking geometry and engineering. Their bikes also built to withstand the frequently muddy riding conditions in the UK with numerous weatherproofing features including high load, weather sealed bearings, integrated seat clamps and rubberised frame seals.
That’s timely with this weeks weather! But enough lingo, fact is they’re awesome to ride and tough enough deal with trails day after day, season after season. So head on over to the rentals page to see what we have – the e-bike is a blast.
