Wisper Winter Test-Pilot in Edmonton

I just came across a great video of one of our customers riding his Wisper 905SE City S bike in Edmonton.  Awesome to see a minor detail like -30deg temperature doesn’t stop a good ride!  Just for the record, he got the bike from our Edmonton dealer  www.redbike.ca

Wisper Electric Bikes at Montreal Expocycle 2010

The annual Expocycle in Montreal was a chance for dealers to see the latest and greatest in the bike world.  The electric bike ‘presence’ at the show has grown significantly from last year and looks set to do so even further next year.  At the Eurobike show in Germany earlier this month there were about 150 electric bike brands on show (double from the previous year) … yep, 150!!  This is a reflection of the industry recognising that ebikes are here to stay and now form a serious portion of the market.  For example, in the Netherlands this year, over 30% of total bike sales were electric bikes.  Canada is a very early market, and may not reach this level, but electric bikes are coming!

The response to the Wisper bikes at the Expo was excellent and we will be adding to our dealer page over the next few weeks as a result.  In particular, the store owners (and our customers!) appreciate being able to buy a high quality product for a reasonable price.  Our 2 year warranty on batteries and motors is a big point of difference between Wisper and other brands.  There is a lot to choose from out there, and a large variety of quality.  Always check the warranties and service back-up before purchasing a bike!

There was a demo track at the show, although most of it was designed for off-road bikes.  Check out the video of a Wisper folding bike being put through its paces (at the bottom of the post)…

A Perspective on Electric Bikes

Electric bikes seem to generate a wide range of, sometimes quite passionate, opinions.  We’ve certainly encountered the full spectrum of thoughts as we’ve travelled across Canada this summer.  However, almost without exception, once people actually ride the bike, there aren’t too many negative comments.  Check out this article where some hard-core bikers rode an ebike for a few weeks (the easiest way to read it is to click on the ‘fullscreen’ button) …
