CHOOSING AN ELECTRIC BIKE

Choosing the best electric bike can be a daunting task.  Here we talk about what to look for when choosing an eBike, in addition to what you get if you buy a WF202 from Warpfive Cycles.

When you purchase an eBike, you need to consider the following-

Battery

Naturally this a very important consideration when choosing an electric bicycle.  The WF202 has a large capacity Samsung lithium ion battery which can travel between 20 and 100 miles (depending on terrain) on a single charge.  It is a 540 Wh battery which is uniquely placed at the centre of the bike for perfect balance.  It can be charged on and off the bike.  Plus it is replaceable.

Motor

A mid-motor pedal assist is the best choice on an eBike. It provides improved handling because of its mid-frame positioning and low centre of gravity.  In addition you will benefit from extended range due to the intelligent power management.  The WF202 has a powerful Tongsheng mid-motor pedal assist with a linear torque sensor.

Brakes

Because you will travel further and faster on an eBike, braking ability is extremely important. For this reason, the WF202 uses the Shimano Deore hydraulic disc brake system on the front and back wheels.

Susepension

You will spend a lot of time on your eBike so comfort is another important consideration. The WF202 has a full suspension (front and rear) so the ride is exceedingly comfortable. 

Drivetrain

These are all the bits that ‘drive’ your bicycle forward. The WF202 comes with Shimano components – Shimano 7 speed freewheel, Shimano derailleur, Shimano chain and Shimano SIS shift lever. 

Lights

Usually this is something that you will need to source and add to your bike. However the WF202 has front & rear lights which are an optional accessory you can add to your bike build when you place your order.  The lights are fully integrated with through frame cable routing.  It is advisable to keep your lights on at all time when riding an eBike.

Folding

A folding bicycle makes life so much more convenient – you can fit the WF202 into boot of your car or take it with you into the office or on public transport or keep it in your caravan.

Price

The WF202 is a high spec British built bicycle which offers excellent value for money.

If you’re looking for an electric bicycle that offers flexible use, a high build quality and affordability – the WF202 is the best electric bike for you.
