The Iconic Wisper brand has been synonymous with high quality, innovative electric bikes for over a decade, Wisper was one of the first British designed electric bikes to be sold in the UK.
Wisper Torque bikes benefit from a new, powerful, almost silent motor controlled by the latest and most innovative torque/speed sensor on the market. The new system will give you instant access to masses of hill climbing power from the moment you start to ride. Simply push down on the pedal and the bike will reward you with a silent surge of power, the harder you push down on the pedals the more the motor will assist. When the bike reaches cruising speed, power will gradually ease back and when power is not needed at all, such as when descending hills, it will cut off completely giving you up to 40% extra range when compared to more basic speed sensor bikes.
The Wisper SE range, consists of six models the 705se step-through, 905se crossbar and 806se folding bike. The SE models are built using many of the same high quality parts as the superb Torque bikes. The ten year warranty frame, rack and battery packs are identical. To build a more affordable Wisper have have changed the drive system and a few other key components giving customers a lot of bike for their money!
Wisper SE bikes are described in the bicycle trade as “the best electric bike at it’s price point.”
