The Wisper Wildcat is a great eMTB for the weekend warrior who is looking for fantastic performance at an achievable price – as it comes with Shimano’s E8000 system. The bike will soak up every trail you throw at it.
Wisper’s premium alloy represents extremely durable and light aluminium of high-end quality. Double-butted wall thicknesses result not only in exciting frame designs: First of all, they offer an optimum Stiffness-to-Weight (STW) ratio.
Besides top functionality, Wisper frames also have to offer a convincing visual appearance. The second welding process during Smooth Welding evens the connecting welding seam – an elaborate concept for a brilliant look without compromises to stability.
Wisper have also utilised a Horst Link suspension system on the rear swing arm to provide the rider with greater comfort, delivering more responsive handling and a reduction in feedback through the suspension under braking
The new frame design delivers the best of both worlds – an externally shaped head tube with bigger diameter at the bottom and weight saving smaller diameter at the top. Wisper headtubes are always designed with a tapered fork and the result is to deliver superb stiffness and precise steering even in the toughest conditions without increasing the weight of the frame unnecessarily.
Due to the widening of the hub spacing by 6mm, the spoke angles become flatter resulting in a stiffer and stronger wheel and paired with the stiffness increasing attributes of a through axle, this is hugely desirable. Besides that, the wider hubs and cranks with wider bottom brackets push the chain line further outwards and enable extra short chain stays for a more agile geometry.
The frame has been designed to accommodate the use of either 27.5 or 29er wheels – providing riders with exceptional versatility
Wisper has designed the Wolf Carbon around the new Shimano Steps EMTB drive system which is more powerful, compact and weighs less, as well as offering more clearance for those daring descents. The beefed up new motor has a maximum output of 75Nm (250w), making event the steepest of climbs a breeze.
The ultra durable waterproof battery has an MTB dedicated low profile design for improved impact and vibration resistance. The high-capacity battery with superb reach and 504Wh offers a consistent recharge and is compatible with the SHIMANO E8000 MTB series. The two battery types available (down-tube mounted and integrated) can be charged to 80% within two hours and 100% in five hours.
