Whyte Portobello
£699.00

whyte-portobello

The Portobello employs some of the best elements of Whyte’s unique UK trail-optimised MTB hardtails to create a nippy, agile city bike. The custom gauge 6061 aluminium frame’s long wheelbase and relaxed 69 degree head angle deliver high speed stability. The shorter stem enables slow speed manoeuvrability. Its shaped, butted, profiled stays make for a fantastically responsive and comfortable rear end. Hydraulic disc brakes offer a level of control previously reserved for high-end trail mountain bikes.

  • Whyte’s trademark hydroformed aluminium frame built with custom-drawn butted 6061 tubing is not only a thing of beauty, it rides beautifully too.

  • The frame’s long wheelbase and relaxed 69 degree head angle make for excellent stability at speed.

  • The custom dropout positions the rear disc brake calliper inside the rear triangle so it doesn’t preclude fitting a standard mudguard and rear pannier rack.

  • The short stem promotes slow speed manoeuvrability.

  • The Shimano Sora transmission, with its 34/50 chainset matched with an 11-32 cassette, offers a wide range of gears in a simplified 2×9 double-chainset format.
