After a checkered history over the past 2 or 3 years Wisper seem back on track with their new range of bikes to regain their position as leaders in the electric bike market place.
3 New bikes, Crossbar- 905 Torque; Step-through- 705 Torque and Mountain bike 929 torque have been launched with a host of upgraded and innovative components.
Mounted between the pedals is the new torque sensor computer which also operates as a rotation sensor giving the rider a whole new riding experience. David Miall, the new MD of the company marketing Wisper, says that as you set off pressure on the pedals will result in the torque sensor delivering a huge boost of power especially when the bike is set on high power. The on board computer senses the speed that the pedal cranks are turning and adjusts the ride to give the most natural experience. Best results are achieved when the rider and bike are sharing the load on a 50/50 basis.
With the batteries mounted on the rear racks the bikes are shorter than their predecessors but new battery technology making batteries smaller for the same capacity, means that either a 11 Ah or 16 Ah battery can be fitted in the same space.
The LED rider display and left hand control switches show the rider the power selected and battery state as well as speed in mph., trip distance, total mileage and clock.
Priced below the Raleigh/Bosch range at £1499 for the 10 Ah &n £1699 for the 16 Ah. version and with larger capacity batteries, the Wispers will prove to be popular bike with those wanting to go serious distances on a machine with good a specification.
