Wisper Wildcat Carbon
The Wisper Wildcat C is the ultimate ride for the serious mountain biker. The unique carbon frame gives an effective balance between power transfer and comfort when it comes to tearing up the trails as it comes with all the latest technology available.
Our new range of very light weight, all carbon high end eMTBs feature the superb Shimano Steps E8000 mountain bike drive system. Specifically designed by Shimano for high performance eMTB use, the E8000 is part of the Deore XT group set, recognised as the very best in eMTB power delivery.
The new Shimano unit is more powerful, compact and weighs less than other models in the market. It offers more clearance for those daring descents and due to the Shimano designers’ long term experience in MTB design, the Q factor (distance between cranks) and rear stay length are exactly the same as on a non electric mountain bike, offering nimble cornering and maximum efficiency.
The new “beefed up” 75Nm (250W) motor makes even the steepest of climbs a breeze. This is coupled with a new lightweight and rigid hollowtech crankset, designed specifically for eMTBs.
Our eMTB range is designed to provide a rewarding riding experience on long trails or short, fast, down hill blasts. The Wildcat Carbon utilises the new Trunnion mount, offering better durability and less friction. The Trunnion setup offers increased standover height, enabling suspension unit designers to produce a frame offering a smoother, stronger pedal stroke. We have employed a Horst link on the rear swing arm on both full suspension bikes, the Horst link makes the rear suspension less susceptible to the forces of pedalling and braking, giving the rider a more comfortable ride with enhanced handling and performance.
Our flagship bikes are constructed using high tensile T700 Uni Directional carbon, the same material used in the build of fighter aircraft and F1 cars. Ourframes benefit from tapered head tubes enabling us to build in a stronger and stiffer front end. Both frames have been designed to clear the larger 27.5” plus tyres or 29er wheels for even more versatility.
SHIMANO E8000 GROUP SET… INTELLIGENT, SILENT AND EASY TO USE
The Drive Unit
Powerful SHIMANO STEPS motor is strong enough to handle the steepest of trails, yet intuitive enough to give you just the right amount of support every pedal stroke along the way.
The E8000 drive unit offers a shorter chainstay and even more clearance, enabling us at Wisper to design eMTBs with the same geometry as standard top end MTBs (See Q Factor). The shorter wheel base creates an amazingly nimble ride. No other eMTB feels or rides as faithfully to the sport.
The drive unit gives you a direct pedalling feel, whether the power assistance is switched on or not. Its low weight ensures even more improved bike handling.
Thanks to the extraordinary pedalling efficiency, the system has a stable assist power output which is regulated by cadence. The faster the bike is pedalled the more the system will assist.
Ride Like an MTB (Q Factor)
The drive unit accommodates frames with shorter chainstays to give Shimano E8000 MTB equipped bikes typical mountain bike handling and manoeuvrability. This means the distance from the BB centre to the rear axle centre can be exactly the same as on a high end, non electric, competition MTB. This gives the bike increased agility when taking tight corners and avoiding obstacles at speed.
Additionally the narrow Q factor is what ultimately provides an efficient pedal stroke. The Q factor is the distance between the cranks.
Combining these features ensures a perfectly balanced riding position and gains more ground with each pedal stroke, providing a natural riding experience.
