The batteries

Reliable Bosch lithium-ion batteries with a 500 Wh energy reserve provide the power for our E-Bikes. With DualBattery Technology – the use of two batteries in parallel – we achieve a top capacity of 1,000 Wh. Depending on the E-Bike model, we install frame batteries, carrier batteries or ultra-modern, fully frame-integrated Bosch PowerTube batteries. This approach sets standards for design and functionality.

Little power packages for big ambitions.

Whether you use one or two batteries on your E-Bike significantly influences your range and achievable climb in altitude. There are also many other decisive factors, such as the set pedal assistance, riding speed or outside temperature. 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 complete charge cycle with the included Bosch standard charger takes just 4.5 hours. With DualBattery Technology, both batteries can be charged individually with the charger or at the same time directly on the E-Bike.

Always in top form.

At Riese & Müller, we look for a perfect battery, matched in function and form, for every E-Bike we develop. That’s why we fit one – or more – of three high-performance Bosch batteries: the frame battery, the carrier battery or the ultra-modern PowerTube battery.

The carrier battery is used in the Swing and Culture series. Thanks to the battery lock, it remains securely on the E-Bike. To charge the battery, open the lock with your key and simply pull the battery out towards the rear.

We use the traditional frame battery in some of our E-Bike models. This battery has also proved itself with E-Cargo bikes.

The PowerTube is the latest Bosch battery. Fully integrated into the frame it is completely invisible. We are proud to be one of the first E-Bike manufacturers to equip many of our bikes with two fully integrated PowerTubes. Both batteries can be removed with the same key and they pop a few centimetres out of the frame when it is opened for ease of removal.

Either two Bosch PowerTubes or one PowerTube and an additional frame battery are used in our E-Bike models with DualBattery Technology. More information can be found on the DualBattery page.
