Having a folding e-bike gives you the combined benefits of power-assisted travel and less storage space, which is particularly effective if part of your journey is to be taken by train. Folding electric bikes are a common choice for commuters that travel into their place of work by train, giving the cyclist the freedom to cycle to and from the station with ease.

What is a Folding E-Bike?

Folding Electric Bikes give a power-assisted alternative to traditional cycles and are a fantastic introduction to cycling for anyone seeking greater freedom and improved fitness, as well as offering greater flexibility on your journey. The specially designed folding frame construction is easy to use, folding up or down in a matter of seconds. Whether you are new to the saddle, or simply want greater enjoyment from your journey, our industry-leading brushless motor technology shares the burden, allowing you to ride further and do more. Wisper’s range of Crossbar electric bicycles can also accommodate panniers, making shopping trips and country picnics accessible to all.

Wisper’s superior battery technology means that recharging is simple so you can be free to enjoy the great outdoors with our reliable folding electric bikes that share the exertion and enhances your enjoyment.

Who should I buy a Folding Electric Bike?

A folding e-bike may also be the right choice for you if you have limited storage space, as the cycle takes up much less space than a conventional bike when folded down. Light, as well as powerful, Wisper e-bikes, also provide a welcome companion for those who experience restricted movement but still have the desire to experience the freedom a cycle can offer. The low step-over frame design makes getting on and off quick and easy, allowing you to explore the great outdoors in comfort and style.

Why we only use rear rack batteries on our city and trekking bikes

All our city and trekking bikes have all been upgraded from the old fashioned “Seat Post Batteries” to the latest “Rear Rack Batteries” as specified by all the larger manufacturers. The “Seat Post Battery” was perfect several years ago when a large volume was needed to carry enough of the older, heavier, more inefficient cells to power an electric bike.

The three main problems with seat post batteries are:

1. They substantially extend the bike’s wheel base making storage more difficult on bike racks and in motorhomes etc.

2. The extra long wheel base makes the bicycle bike less nimble and more difficult to control.

3. The connectors are very near to the ground and can be shorted out in the wet cutting power to your bike.

With modern, light weight, high efficient battery cells we are able to reduce the weight and increase the power available in a battery. Our latest battery choice is 700Wh (20Ah). The weight placed on the rack over the rear wheel enhances rear wheel grip and bike control.  Our racks have been designed to safely and securly carry your battery and still have the facility to add panniers, completely hiding the battery.

About the Wisper e-bike technology

Batteries: Wisper ebikes come with the choice of three batteries that fit all City and Trekking models without the need for any changes or adjustments to the bikes or batteries. Both battery options are provided with a two-year warranty. Our batteries are stowed in a specially developed rear rack shortening the wheel base, resulting in a safer, more nimble ride and raising the battery away from road spray. A short wheel base ensures improved safety and control, especially at speed.

Battery Option 1: Standard 375Wh lithium battery has a range of up to 50 miles and takes 2.5 – 5 hours to charge.

Battery Option 2: Long range 575Wh lithium battery has a range of up to 75 miles and takes 2 – 4 hours to charge.

Battery Option 3: Mega range 700Wh cutting edge LG battery with deep sleep mode, has a range of up to 90 miles and takes 2.5 – 5 hours to charge.

Controller: The controllers found on both Wisper ranges run on our own patented software. We have developed the software to offer the most natural of riding experiences. When combined with the Wisper cadence and torque sensors we are able to produce the smoothest, most responsive ebikes on the market – regardless of cost.

Motor: Both Wisper SE and Wisper Torque bikes are driven by the latest brushless motors made by one of the largest ebike motor manufacturers in the world. The Wisper Torque’s ultra high torque brushless motor is extremely compact and very powerful. When used in conjunction with Wisper’s unique software the Wisper Torque’s motor is virtually silent.

OUR TRUSTPILOT REVIEWS

Quality, performance and good looks.

I like the build quality, no rattles whatsoever, the gear changes are simple and precise, the performance from the motor is excellent, when folded you won't want to carry it far but if like me you only go as far a the car boot, then fine. At the age of 71, cycling is now more fun than when I was was a teenager.... I say get a Wisper, you won't be disappointed.

Great value and easy to use

My first electric bike and over the moon with it. Very easy to manoeuvre. I live at the top of a steep hill which was horrendous on my pedal bike but now feels as if i'm cycling on a flat road.

Great design

Great design, the flexibility available on power packs make the 806 an ideal companion to our motorhome. Great to see a British Company leading the way

A big thank you to Wisper bikes for...it's certainly a Wildcat

A big thank you to Wisper bikes for their excellent support in buying the exceptional Wildcat Carbon e bike. It's a dream to look at and ride.

Many thanks

Great folding E Bike, first class ride.

easy to adjust from a normal bike to the EBike with wisper. I have been highly delighted with the performance of this bike, I am 67 yrs old and found the battery assistance really helpful although I only use this function occasionally. With the additional throttle on the handlebars I can whizz up steepish hills without further injury to my joints. I have only had my Wisper bike for 3 weeks but would recommend it if you are thinking of buying an EBike. Also a big thank you to the guys in Frodsham where I purchased the bike who took the time to explain all the functions to me in detail.

I LOVE my new bike!

Haven't cycled for years mainly because we live on a steep hill and I could't face the cycle home. Also my legs are quite weak after breaking my leg in an accident. With my new bike I raced up the hill no problem and can easily keep up with my husband! It's early days but so far I LOVE my bike! It has greatly restored my confidence, and I am looking forward to getting fitter as well as having fun!

Great bike to ride either with or without assistance

Great bike to ride either with or without assistance. The electric motor makes all the difference to enjoying cycling for someone of older years, and weaker knees than in my youth. Multiple levels of assistance mean you can choose how much help you want from the bike depending on the gradient, or how tired you are. Gear change easy, comfortable saddle, and the bike looks good.
