Whyte E-180 RS 2022 Electric Full Suspension Mountain Bike

5 out of 5 Customer Rating

The Details

The Whyte E-180 RS is a fun rider-focused Enduro bike with a dynamic personality.

Uncompromised OTO geometry, combined with an ultra-low centre of gravity has had reviewers around the world complimenting it's handling, balance and control.

Upfront you have the Fox Float 38, Factory 27.5", capable 180mm travel fork which gives confidence, performance, and durability. At the back you have the Fox Float X2, Factory shock, a gravity-defying air shock holds nothing back, especially not you, which is there to effortlessly soak up the smallest hits and tracking the slightest changes in the terrain.

On the trails. Sram provides the stopping power with their Code RSC, 4 Piston disc brakes - which means the braking power will feel the same no matter how long or steep. Additionally, the Bosch Performance Line CX Motor helps you climb tough trails and loop over and over again.

Bosch provides the complete system on the E-Series bikes from Whyte, with the Gen 4 Performance Line CX motor and portion display seen throughout. With the new software update for MY21, providing 85nm of torque, you will be hard-pressed to find another motor that can get you up the hills as quickly as this. Whyte does things a little bit differently from the others on the Bosch platform. There's no big hole in the frame to slot the battery in on the downtube, rather you slide the battery in from the bottom of the frame. This adds a tonne of strength into the frame, whilst simultaneously bringing down the weight. Not to mention that the reliability and unbeatable backup provided by Bosch make it a difficult choice to look elsewhere.

Following on with the reliability theme, all Whyte eMTBs now come with ebike specific steel freehubs, ensuring that the bike can now handle the increased power. The Main Pivot Bearings fitted to Whyte Full Suspension bikes are also warrantied for life (original owner only).



Uncompromised Whyte OTO geometry combined with an ultra-low centre of gravity means outstanding handling, balance and control. A complete eSystem from Bosch means reliability and unbeatable backup. Our “slide in” battery fitment means maximum structural integrity for minimum weight and torsional rigidity.

The high-torque 85Nm Bosch Performance Line CX motor is super-compact with exceptionally smooth power delivery which simulates normal pedalling, and range anxiety shouldn’t be an issue as we fit a powerful 625Wh battery as standard.


Our Verdict

The Whyte E-180 RS is a fun rider-focusedEnduro bike with a dynamic personality.

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).
