Why do different reviews list different prices?
We run promotions from time to time which means reviewers may have paid a lower price. Many WAU reviews are from several years ago meaning their price may not be up to date. You can find our current prices here.
I saw a third party website selling a WAU bike at a heavily discounted price - is this legitimate?
Please be cautious when it comes to third party sellers. If you are unsure whether a retailer is trustworthy, always check with our team before purchasing. It’s possible that the bike in question has been stolen. We are not able to provide assistance should you buy a stolen WAU product.
My order didn’t go through, but I can see a pending payment on my bank account?
This is classed as a 'Pending Transaction' in your account. You will need to contact your bank in regards to their process for this.

WAU Bike Performance
Where can I find detailed product specifications?
A list of full WAU X Plus bike product specs can be found here.
Can the battery be removed?
Yes. The battery can easily be removed and reattached for quick charging on the go.
How long will the power cell last?
The WAU X Plus bike power cell has an approximate lifespan of 2-3 years, or up to 800 charge cycles. If your power pack starts to show a drop in mileage, you can easily order a new replacement cell from our website.
How far can my WAU X plus bike go on one charge?
The WAU X plus comes in two range options.
375h – have a range of 20 miles (full power mode) – 40 miles (economy mode).
900Wh – have a range of 50 miles (full power mode) – 100 miles (economy mode)
*Maximum range is under normal conditions: soft wind, flat road with minimum load.
Your new WAU X Plus bike range depends on a few factors: weather, rider weight, load, altitude and terrain may all impact battery life. A little bit of legwork can help to achieve maximum range when using your WAU X Plus bike. The WAU X Plus bike has been tested with a mix of variables to ensure maximum battery performance.
Where is the battery located?
The WAU battery is hidden inside the moulded frame to ensure a sleek, aesthetically pleasing model. It’s protected by a secure double locking mechanism and can easily be accessed.
Can I still use my WAU X plus bike if the battery runs out of power?
Of course. If you run out of power, you can cycle as you would with a regular bike. Even without the motor, the WAU X plus bike is a dream to ride.
How do I charge my WAU X plus battery?
The WAU X plus comes with an easy-to-remove battery which means you can charge anytime, anywhere. The battery will stop charging automatically when it reaches full capacity.
How long does it take to charge my battery?
All WAU X plus bikes come with a standard charger. You can also choose to upgrade to the Super Charger which offers faster charging times.

900Wh / 25ah / 100Miles – 12 hours
375Wh / 10.4ah /40Miles – > 3 hours
900Wh/ 25ah / 100Miles -> >6 hours
Can I charge my power pack by pedalling?
At present, the WAU X bike’s only power source is the battery power pack. However, this is a feature we are currently looking into as we constantly strive to improve our products.
How do I look after my WAU X plus battery?
Battery performance is often influenced by outside temperature. Battery output and range will be greatly increased in mild to warm weather, compared to colder conditions. Always store your battery at room temperature indoors. Never store your battery outside.
Room temperature is optimal for charging. Please do not charge your battery outdoors, especially during winter.
If internal battery cell temperature drops below -10°C, no power will be provided. You will have to then bring your battery indoors to warm up.
When riding in low temperatures, you may find that your battery drains quicker and pedal assistance is less powerful. Riding on a lower assistance level for the first few minutes of your journey will allow your battery to sufficiently warm up.
We recommend you unplug your charger when your battery is fully charged. If you want to store your bike for a longer period, try to leave your battery indoors at around 50% charged.
Is the WAU X plus bike waterproof/does it have anti-rust protection?
Yes and yes. The WAU X plus bike is made from a combination of high quality 6061 aluminium, anti-rust steel and highly durable ABS plastic. Using high quality materials protects all parts of your WAU X bike and ensures a long lifespan, no matter the weather conditions. The WAU X plus bike has been carefully designed to be water-resistant, meaning it can be ridden even in the strongest of rain showers with ease. However - please do not fully submerge your WAU X plus bike in water as this can damage the electrical components.
Can I derestrict the speed limit?
The answer depends on which type of display you are using.
Speed derestriction is not available with the standard WAU X plus display. Any attempt to override the safety system via the standard display will void your warranty with us.
Speed derestriction can be accessed via the colour display upgrade. You can find this feature in advanced settings, and using it will not impact your warranty.
Standard speed – 15.5mph
Private road speed – 20mph
Does the WAU X plus standard display light up in the dark?
Yes. On the computer dashboard, press and hold “ + “ for 3 seconds to activate/ deactivate your display and integrated front light.
Can I go off road with the WAU X plus?
The WAU X plus is a hybrid road bike and is therefore not suitable for off road use.
Electric Bike Safety
Do I need a license/is it legal to ride my WAU X plus bike on UK public roads?
Electric bikes do not require a license, insurance or road tax in the UK. It’s also completely legal to ride a 250W electric bike on public roads in the UK and EU.
Can I change the speed limit on my WAU X plus bike?
The WAU X plus bike is set to the top legal speed of 15mph upon delivery, meaning the motor provides assistance up to 24km/h. Should you choose to upgrade your e-bike display, you have the option to derestrict speed.

Yes. Pedal assistance comes as standard with all WAU X bikes. You can purchase an upgrade for your thumb throttle which allows you to go full electric. However, bear in mind that this may rapidly drain your battery life and reduce your range significantly. Please also note that thumb throttles are not permitted for use on public roads in the UK.
