The Orgin of WAU | The Backstory
WAU Bike was founded in Nottingham, England in 2018 by Linas and Crystal, two underdogs with a love for electric vehicles. They wanted a 2-wheel version of the smart electric car, but there wasn't one on the market. Standard electric bikes were available, but they couldn't go the distance, didn't look particularly 'cool', and lacked technical features.
The Story of WAU
WAU was founded in Nottingham, England in 2018 by Linas and Crystal, two underdogs with a love for electric vehicles. They wanted a 2-wheel version of the smart electric car, but there wasn't one on the market. Standard electric bikes were available, but they couldn't go the distance, didn't look particularly 'cool', and lacked technical features.
The founders of WAU Bike saw an opportunity to take all of the incredible aspects of large performance electric vehicles and make them portable, affordable, and highly desirable. They set out to create the most advanced, long-range e-bike on the market, and the WAU X Plus Electric Bike was born.
WAU X Plus electric bike
The WAU X Plus Electric Bike is a genuinely best-in-class smart electric bike. It's designed to take you much further than ever before, with a range of up to 120 miles per charge. It's lightweight, with a powerful motor that delivers up to 750W of power, and has both pedal-assist and throttle modes.
The bike is fitted with everything it needs to supercharge through the streets, including a torque sensor, cadence sensor, and assist level settings. It's designed for both commuting and off-road adventures, with a hybrid design that can handle any terrain. And when you're done riding, it folds up for easy storage.
The Sacrifices Made
The founders of WAU knew that their electric bike had the potential to be the world's best, which is why they took some drastic sacrifices to ensure its success. They dropped out of universities, took out personal loans, sold valuable personal items on eBay, gathered every last pound into the company's pot, and went all out for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
The Rider Community
From the early days, WAU Bike's rider community were the true leaders. They showed the company the way and provided crucial, direct input that helped shape the bike into what it is today. WAU Bike's rider community continues to be a driving force behind the company's success.
