Whyte Wessex gets dedicated single ring version for 2018

No front mech hanger on the Wessex One model

Whyte is a name more associated with mountain than road bikes. But it’s always had a stable of alloy winter road bikes and is increasing its range of carbon road machines too.

We’ve previously reviewed the top spec SRAM Red eTap HRD equipped Whyte Wessex SE. At £6750, it comes with 28mm Schwalbe S-One tyres, that come out at an ultra-wide 30mm on the Zipp 303 Firecrest tubeless-ready wheels. You also get disc brakes and provision for mudguards and we liked its year-round usability.
