Takes your breath away. Not your strength.
First, you fall in love with its multi-award-winning design, and then with its athletic features. The Charger models are like a six-pack cast in aluminium. A precisely-conceived geometry and 29” or 27.5” wheels guarantee the ultimate in riding comfort. The elevated chainstays allow versions with a long-lasting and low-maintenance belt drive. Bosch Performance drives reinforce your own muscle strength with speeds of up to 20 mph or 28 mph. For that, you need short braking distances, which the hydraulic disc brakes deliver. This level of sportiness looks good on everyone. After all, it’s like it was made to fit.
On the move with propulsion, speed and style. Designed for sporty riding, the Charger relies on the Bosch Performance CX motor and proven technology of the dynamic Shimano Deore XT 10-speed derailleur gear with high degree of efficiency. With the braking performance of the hydraulic Deore disc brakes, coming to a stop is easy even when travelling fast. The super-bright Supernova lighting system brings light to the darkness. Unadulterated riding pleasure for everyday life.
A real jewel, this diamond frame.
Even a parked Charger looks sporty enough to look like it's ready to lock horns with mountain goats 2,500 metres up. The reason? The elevated chainstay. It also allows a version with a robust and easy-care carbon belt drive. So sporty riders can throw off those last chains and actually get started in the race on the mountain.
Motor and battery
One drive. This drive.
With its tremendous, high-torque driving force and muscle strength back-up of up to 300%, you can conquer any mountain and any terrain. The Bosch Performance CX motor works with you up to 20 mph. If you like to pick up the pace, you should be tempted by an HS model featuring the Bosch Performance Speed motor and pedal assistance up to 275% at a speed of up to 28 mph. And even when walking, your E-Bike helps you out with its pushing aid.
A so far unequalled battery capacity of 1,000 Wh is achieved by means of the DualBattery technology, i.e. the use of two batteries in parallel. Ultra-modern Bosch lithium ion batteries, each of 500 Wh, provide the power for our E-Bikes. It is of course possible to fit just one battery.
The standard Intuvia display can serve as a control centre with a smartphone charging function.
You see - nothing!
On the Charger models, every detail delivers superb functionality. Even the design. The cables run hidden under the top tube and through the frame.
Park your Charger wherever you want. Only you can take it away. The ABUS Bordo Plus folding lock is included as standard with all GH, GT, and GX models, and is optional for the mountain models. All other models are equipped with a frame lock as standard. The ABUS Bordo Plus shuts simultaneously with the battery lock, which means you only need one key for your E-Bike.
Twice the range. Twice the riding pleasure.
Riese & Müller is doubling the range of its E-Bikes with DualBattery technology – in other words, by adding a second battery. This steps up battery capacity to 1,000 Wh. Using a charger, both batteries can be charged at the same time. Depending on your needs, you can also use just one battery to go on a ride. Its dual battery technology puts Riese & Müller at the top of its class in terms of riding range. It is available for the Charger with the frame heights 49 and 53 cm.
