Customize the M79 by replacing comfort products and switching the tyres, transforming it into the ultimate off-roader for a thrilling day amidst hills and forests.

For those who crave adventure, the Wayfarer Adventure model is tailor-made to tackle hills, gravel, grass, and mud with exceptional grip and control. Opt for the Wayfarer Mountain for a minimalist, robust, and effortless ride that doesn't compromise on agility. Choose between hub or crank motors, and select the ideal frame style for you: the classic crossbar or the easy access step-through e-bike.

Customer Reviews

Mids 60's and loving them!

I bought two Wisper bikes (M7 & M9) and received excellent customer service throughout. The bikes themselves are very good quality and soundly built. I’m a retired mechanical engineer so I’m able to make a professional assessment. Now in my mid 60s, and with bad knees and back, I thought my cycling days were over, but this bike has opened up a whole new set of possibilities. The torque from the electric motor is excellent allowing me to go further and faster than i ever could on a non electric bike, which is now laying dormant in the garage. If you are contemplating buying an e-bike, I can highly recommend the Wisper bikes.
