The Perfect E-Bike For Everyday. And Then Some.

A striking design. Everyday performance.  The Riese & Müller Charger ebike is a bike that you will fall in love - in looks, performance and with where it can take you. You will find this ebike perfectly balanced to ride and with similar but more comfortable handling and versatility than a mountain bike. Riese & Muller have designed a striking looking two-tone frame which beautifully integrates the battery and all the cabling. It is very sleek and clean, yet also easy to use. 

As with all Riese & Muller's every component and accessory has been carefully considered for comfort, durability and performance. There are six models that you can choose from (see below) and each one comes with excellent hydraulic disc brakes, puncture resistant Schwalbe tyres, ergonomic grip and saddle, front suspension and the thudbuster suspension seatpost, which is almost like having the comfort of dual suspension. 

The top quality Supernova lights will light your way and they also come with an Abus Bordo Plus lock to provide peace of mind when unattended.  An exceptional ebike that is equipped with everything that you need. All you need to do is ride.

Riese & Muller Charger 2020: Two New Styles

The Riese & Muller Charger series is one of Riese & Muller's most popular series and for 2020 Riese & Muller have expanded the choice. The differences between the styles predominantly depend upon your gearing preference, your motor preference and whether you plan to do some more adventurous riding such as rail trails and forest tracks. 

Charger Silent and GT Silent: The "Silent" models features Bosch's new Performance line Gen 3 motor which is small, much quieter and more powerful. All "Silent" models have Enviolo 380 continuous internal hub gearing with the carbon belt drive combination. The main difference between the two versions is that the "GT" has fat Super Moto tires which are more suitable for light offroad such as rail trail and forest trails. 

Charger Touring and GT Touring: Powered by the Bosch CX Gen 2 motor, the Touring and GT Touring models have traditional Derailleur gearing. The 'Touring' version has Shimano Deore 10-speed and urban-oriented Schwalbe Big Ben tyres so a fantastic option as a commuter. The 'GT Touring' is more heavy duty and performance-oriented with Shimano SLX 11-speed gearing and wide-profile Super Moto tires so a great option for those who want to cross over to light adventure riding. 

Charger Vario and GT Vario: Also powered by the Bosch CX Gen2 motor and the same differences as above however these have the Enviolo 380 continuous internal hub gear and carbon belt drive combination for those who want low maintenance and prefer a simpler gearing system.
