Our view
An in depth review from the experts at DASH
At DASH, we've had the pleasure of testing countless bikes over the years, but the Whyte E-505 Hardtail Electric Mountain Bike has truly left its mark. This British-born beast, often referred to as the 'Land Rover Defender of e-bikes', is a testament to Whyte's 25 years of engineering heritage and their commitment to pushing the boundaries of e-bike technology. The E-505 has ruggedly stylish aesthetics. The matte black and grey finish, coupled with rose accents, exudes a sense of adventure and sophistication. But as we all know, looks can only get you so far. It's the performance that really counts, and the E-505 delivers in spades. The heart of the E-505 is its Bosch Performance Line CX 85Nm motor. This powerhouse provides an impressive amount of torque, making uphill climbs feel like a breeze. Paired with a large capacity Bosch PowerTube 500Wh removable battery, the E-505 offers long-range freedom that is perfect for those who love to explore off the beaten path. The Purion handlebar display is a nice touch, providing clear information about your ride and remaining battery life. The E-505's light and robust 6061 T-6 aluminum frame is a marvel of engineering. It provides a confident and capable ride, handling bumps and dips with ease. The 29-inch wheels, shod with high-volume Maxxis tyres, offer smooth-rolling performance and excellent grip on a variety of terrains. The 1x11 SRAM transmission ensures fast and reliable shifting, while the powerful four-piston hydraulic disc brakes provide all-weather stopping power. One of the standout features of the E-505 is its geometry. The upright position and wide bars make for a comfortable ride, whether you're cruising back country lanes or tackling challenging trails. The bike's handling is superb, thanks to the same design genius that has won Whyte national championships. In conclusion, the Whyte E-505 Hardtail Electric Mountain Bike is a game-changer. It's a bike that amplifies your fun, whether you're looking to stay fit, explore the countryside, or push your limits on off-road trails. It's not just a bike; it's a partner for all your adventures. The E-505 is a testament to Whyte's commitment to performance by design, and it's a ride that we can wholeheartedly recommend.
