A Better Quality Electric Folding Bike
If you are looking for quality from your electric folding bike then this is the one for you. A lot of electric folding bikes are quite basic and the quality of some of the components is not ideal. This is fine for the casual user but if you plan to make good use of the bike and you want it to last, then we recommend this bike.
The first thing you notice about the bike is the overall look. The paintwork is a matt metallic grey and you can see that the frame quality, the welding and the finsh is of the highest standard.
As the name suggests, it has a motor that is activated by Torque sensors rather than just rotation sensors. This has several benefits. Firstly it means that the motor will respond immediately that you apply pressure to the pedals. With rotation sensors the motor will only start once it has detected that the pedals are moving and this can take up to half a turn of the pedals. This can delay your setting off, especially on a hill. A torque sensor also means that the power delivered by the motor is related to the pressure you apply. Therefore if you feel that you want to accelerate quickly and you push down hard on the pedals, then you will get a great response. A rotation sensor alone will not give you this immediacy of power. The motor speed is only changed with a cadence sensor by changing the level of assistance.
This system is also more efficient as a result. If you are cruising on a flat road then the power from a torque sensor motor is reduced, therefore saving battery power. A rotation sensor will not respond in the same way because the pedals are still moving round. Wisper estimate that because of this a torque motor is up to 50% more efficient.
This bike also benefits from many other improvements in spec. The gears are Shimano Acera cassette – this is a better quality than you will see on many electric folding bikes; the motor is also more powerful than many you will find elsewhere. This will give you that bit of extra power that you need to climb that extra steep hill. The saddle is a high quality Selle Royal ebike saddle. The lights spaninga lighting system – LEDS running off the battery,
The bike can be purchased with a 575 watt hour battery as an option for an additonal £200. This battery also benefits from high quality Samsung cells an a sophisticated battery management system enabling it to be left for longer periods of time without the battery dying.
As with all our bikes we offer a free service of the bike after 6 weeks and will then carry out maintenance as and when required. We offer a free delivery service.
Wisper are very confident of the quality of this bike and a 10 year warranty is given on the frame and 2 years on the battery and motor. In addition all the Wisper bikes are supported with parts for a minimum of seven years. If the bike has an issue in the first 2 years that cannot be resolved within one week, they will supply a courtesy bike until yours is back on the road.
