Like any bicycle, it is important that your Wisper Electric Bicycle is kept clean and well lubricated. Our ebikes fall into the City and Trekking category and are not designed as mountain bikes. If you do use your Wisper bike “off road”, it is important that all mud and sand is cleaned from all moving parts and the parts are lightly lubricated, before storage or further use. Make sure no lubricant is applied to braking surfaces. A build up of mud and/or sand on moving parts may damage your bike and in extreme cases could negate your warranty.
All bicycles need regular servicing and electric bicycles in particular should be serviced and checked over by an electric bike specialist at least once a year. If you are using the bicycle on a daily basis, for your safety and for the correct level of maintenance, we recommend six monthly servicing. Your Wisper dealer will be happy to help you look after your bike.If you are unsure regarding daily maintenance and use of your bike, please refer to your Wisper dealer or your Wisper Handbook for further advice.
