Removing the crossbar makes cycling far more accessible, but it also means that the step-through frame achieves its strength through an alternative geometry and construction to traditional crossbar bike frames. Read More...
Wisper’s range of Step-through ebikes offer a comfortable ride, whilst maintaining the same rigidity and load capacity as traditional crossbar ebikes. The result is a robust bicycle that is capable of handling shopping trips with extra load as well as long rides across demanding terrain.
What is a Step-Through E-Bike?
Step-through frames are traditionally associated with ladies’ bicycles, however step-through, or Low-Step frames have become the choice for anyone who may need to get on and off a bicycle with ease. Nowadays, Step-through frames are no longer seen as a gender specific style, but are regarded as a fantastic introduction to cycling for anyone seeking greater freedom and improved fitness, opening up the great-outdoors for everyone to experience in style and comfort. Wisper’s step-through ebike range is the entry-point for most new electric bike riders, representing the perfect choice for mixed use, whether shopping, commuting or enjoying long country rides
Who Should Buy a Step-Through Electric Bike?
Step-through frames are a particularly effective option for riders who need to easily mount or disembark their bike, whether that is due to your cycling routine, restricted agility or reduced movement. With the introduction of brushless motor and minified battery technology, Wisper electric bicycles give you the power to enjoy the great outdoors when you need it most. Our customers come from all walks of life and have wildly differing motivations for purchasing an ebike – after all, electric bicycles can be enjoyed by anyone over the age of 14.

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.
