The New Charger.
Integrated design and high-tech equipment in an E-Bike.
Riese & Müller, manufacturer of premium E-Bikes, starts the 2018 season by launching a reinterpretation of the successful Charger model, the New Charger, onto the market. Its sporty, integrated design, the high-tech equipment with Bosch PowerTube battery and optional DualBattery Technology, as well as the comfortable seat position, make it the perfect E-Bike for everyday use.
The New Charger is the first, fully integrated E-Bike from Riese & Müller. The underlying idea and the characteristic design are based on the successful Charger range. Integration of the Bosch PowerTube battery turns the New Charger into an independent concept. "The recipe for success of our Charger range is the combination of a very sporty design and comfortable riding. We've also considered this when developing the New Charger. With the comprehensive integration of the Bosch PowerTube battery, the New Charger is an E-Bike of the new generation, both technologically and aesthetically," says Heiko Müller, founder and CEO of Riese & Müller.
With the New Charger, this integration has been consistently implemented. The Bosch PowerTube battery is integrated in the down tube. For charging, the battery can be easily removed or charged directly on the E-bike. The cables run hidden through the frame.
The design language is based on the sportiness of the Charger concept. The typical Charger bend on the seat stay and the two-coloured appearance, which combines matt and glossy paints, give the New Charger its unique character. The Charger dynamics are emphasised by an elevated chainstay. They create an equipment option with low-maintenance, carbon belt drive that, in addition to quiet running, provides a particularly high level of rider comfort. On all models, the carbon belt drive is fitted with a continuous NuVinci gear. For sporty cyclists, the new Charger comes with an efficient Shimano derailleur gear.
In addition to the 500 Wh battery integrated in the frame, the battery capacity can be increased to 1.000 Wh with the Riese & Müller DualBattery Technology. This involves fitting a standard battery on the down tube. This is integrated so skilfully into the frame triangle, that the additional weight has no effect on the riding behaviour - the typical Riese & Müller powerful riding dynamics are kept.
The New Charger mountain is an attractive addition to the electric MTB range. With its New Charger, Riese & Müller now offers a high-end electric MTB for long tough trips. With its superior riding dynamics and DualBattery Technology, it delivers an unbeatable range and maximum elevation gain. The New Charger mountain comes with a Bosch Performance CX motor, 500 Wh PowerTube and 11-speed Shimano Deore XT.
The New Charger series is available as a Mixte version with inclined top tube and with optional DualBattery Technology. There are seven different equipment variants available from 3.879,00 €.The New Charger will be available for delivery from October 2017 in electric red metallic, black and pearl white.
