The Details

The Whyte Friston V4 is a well-equipped gravel and adventure bike featuring hydraulic discs, ground-breaking geometry, SRAM's Apex 1 groupset and a dropper post so you can make the most of its capabilities on steeper descents.

 

The unique Whyte frame geometry is applied to the Friston, creating a supremely versatile all-terrain bike. It's equally at home riding your favourite bridle path as it is winter training or even commuting.

 

Whyte's straight bladed full carbon fork with its tapered steerer tube and 12mm through axles gives this bike great front end stiffness and steering precision. Combined with an ultra-wide Whyte 500 riser bar which allows you to truly exploit the radical geometry.

 

  • 6061 alloy, hydro formed frame with straight bladed full carbon fork
  • SRAM Apex 1 1x11 speed drivetrain
  • SRAM Apex 1 hydraulic disc brakes

Our Verdict

The Friston takes everything Whyte has learnt from MTBs and puts that knowledge into a great value gravel/adventure bike.

How do I measure my height?

With your shoes off, stand upright against a wall, with your shoulders back and legs together. Use a pencil to make a small mark on the wall above your head – make sure you hold the pencil parallel to the floor. Then measure from the floor to your mark, in centimetres or feet and inches.

 

How do I measure my inside leg length?

With your shoes off, stand upright with your back against a wall. Place a book/ruler between your legs, level with your crotch. Then measure from the floor to the top of the book/ruler, in centimetres or feet and inches (it’s easier if a friend helps).
