The 2018 Riese Muller New Charger is powered by the top of the line Bosch CX drive system and features the brand new integrated Powertube lithium battery in the frame. The engineers at Riese & Muller have done it again and created a truly unique electric bicycle for both commuting and urban exploration. With 3 distinct models, colours, and sizes, the New Charger has a configuration for everyone from the daily commuter, urban explorer, or weekend warrior.
The Riese Muller New Charger is the first bike in North America to utilize the brand new Bosch PowerTube with the Performance CX mid-drive motor. The Bosch system works in tandem to achieve remarkable performance and incredible longevity with the option to extend your range to nearly 300km in ideal riding conditions with optional secondary battery. Each model comes standard with powerful CX drive unit that produces 75Nm of torque to guarantee ease and great pleasure wherever you may find yourself biking. The centrally mounted Intuvia display provides all the essential metrics of your ride including speed, charge, odometer, trip, shift indicator, and intelligent remaining distance calculator based on your current ride. For the data-hungry cyclist there is also the COBI upgrade to track even more information including GPS with trail maps, cadence, integration with heart-rate devices, and control over your music via the handlebar mounted thumb controller.
Premier Commuter E-Bike
The New Charger is available in 3 configurations designed to excel at various activities. The GT Touring is ideal for daily use in variable terrain thanks to the Shimano 11-Speed derailleur, 2.4 inch Super Moto-X tires with puncture resistance, and suspension fork to absorb road vibrations. The GH NuVinci provides a hassle and maintenance-free ride via the NuVinci continuous hub gears and Gates carbon belt drive system. The Magura MT4 hydraulic disc brakes on the GH are ideal for the 160kg (352lbs) hauling capacity. And finally, the Charger Mountain utilizes the excellent balance and rigidity of the aluminum frame for riders looking to tackle the great off-road outdoors with the juicy Schwalbe Nobby Nic 2.8″ tires and upgraded Suntour Aion 35 Boost suspension fork.
There are many smaller differences between the models which are listed in the components list below. All the models have front and rear lights.
