The batteries.

Reliable Bosch lithium-ion batteries with a 400 or 500 Wh energy reserve provide the power for our E-Bikes. With the DualBattery technology – using two rechargeable batteries in parallel – we can achieve a record capacity of a combined 1,000 Wh. Depending on the E-Bike model, we fit frame batteries, carrier batteries and, new for this year's model, the state-of-the-art Bosch PowerTube batteries, fully integrated into the frame. With this we are setting new standards in design and functionality.

Small power packs for ambitious goals.

The more watt-hours the battery has, the greater its range. This also depends on numerous other factors, such as the pedal assistance level set, the pace, the outside temperature or the inclination of the route. When it's stop-and-go in the city, the range is shorter than with a constant journey over a longer distance – comparable with the fuel consumption of a car. If you find while you’re on a ride that your battery's residual power is not going to be enough to complete your journey, you can reduce the level of assistance and thus still reach your destination comfortably.

Recharge, ride, rejoice. Again and again.

The batteries are charged directly on the E-Bike or, once removed, at any standard 110/220 V wall socket. There is no need to run the battery all the way down, because it can be charged in its partially charged state without any “memory effect”. The lifespan is 800 - 1,000 charging cycles. Thanks to the short charging times, the battery can be topped up well even during a lunch break, for example. A full charge using the Bosch Standard charger provided takes only 4.5 hours for the 500 Wh battery and only 3.5 hours for the 400 Wh battery. With DualBattery technology, both batteries can be charged at the same time directly on the E-Bike.

Always at its best.

At Riese & Müller we look for the perfectly fitting battery with the ideal form for every Pedelec we develop. That's why, depending on the model, we fit one of three high-performance Bosch batteries: the frame battery, the carrier battery and now the state-of-the-art PowerTube battery.

The carrier battery is used on the Swing and Culture ranges. A battery lock ensures it remains securely on the E-Bike. To charge it you open the lock with your key and simply pull the battery out.

The frame battery is normally attached to the down tube and can also be removed easily with the appropriate key. In the case of DualBattery technology, a second battery is fitted to the top tube or cargo surface. Further information can be found on the DualBattery page.

The PowerTube is the latest Bosch battery and is brand new on this year's models. Thanks to its full integration into the frame it is as good as invisible. Naturally, this battery can only be removed with the right key. When unlocked the battery pops out of the frame by a few centimetres for easy removal. The PowerTube is used on all New Charger and Supercharger models. For the DualBattery option, the Supercharger integrates two PowerTube batteries, while the New Charger uses a combination of PowerTube and frame battery.
