Riese & Muller Charger GX

Be the first to review this product

Dirt. Mud. Sand and dust. You are surely thinking right now: “Why me?” After all, you only wanted to go touring. But from the moment you head out into nature with your Charger GX, you actually develop an addiction to it. You feel its sportiness, and suddenly regular roads are passé for you. Forever. The gearshift, with its enormous ratio range, and the high-torque Bosch Performance CX motor were created to tame the wild side of nature and to scale even the steepest of mountains. But even when nature tries her worst, the Fat Tires will keep you from getting stuck or sinking into the mud. So ultimately, the day tour can keep going as far as the two 500 Wh batteries will take you. Which is a long way. It's great, then, that the suspension seatpost with its leather saddle makes the ride so enjoyable. So then you ride back into the world of the everyday and the city – and you can no longer imagine your life without mud.

The Charger GX.
Ride the world with 1,000 watt-hours.

Dirt. Mud. Sand and dust. You are surely thinking right now: “Why me?” After all, you only wanted to go touring. But from the moment you head out into nature with your Charger GX, you actually develop an addiction to it. You feel its sportiness, and suddenly regular roads are passé for you. Forever. The gearshift, with its enormous ratio range, and the high-torque Bosch Performance CX motor were created to tame the wild side of nature and to scale even the steepest of mountains. But even when nature tries her worst, the Fat Tires will keep you from getting stuck or sinking into the mud. So ultimately, the day tour can keep going as far as the two 500 Wh batteries will take you. Which is a long way. It's great, then, that the suspension seatpost with its leather saddle makes the ride so enjoyable. So then you ride back into the world of the everyday and the city – and you can no longer imagine your life without mud.

Designed for trips, expeditions and the steepest ascents with ample luggage.  A Brooks leather saddle, ergonomic cork handles and high-quality sprung seatpost ensure fantastic comfort, especially on long trips. Schwalbe Rock Razor Fat Tires prevent any sinking on soft terrain. Hydraulic Shimano Deore XT disc brakes provide the perfect braking on steep descents.

Available in two models: Touring & Rohloff

  • The Touring Model features a Sporty Shimano Deore XT 11-speed derailleur gear: highly effective, proven shift technology at a lower price than a Rohloff hub.
  • The Rohloff Model includes a Rohloff 14-speed hub gear with enormous ratio range.  Choose this option for a wide gear range, to be able to shift to any gear at any time and to avoid the maintenance and repair/replacement requirements found with a standard derailluer and cassette configuration.

The Bosch system

Reliable, performance-oriented and innovative – these are the standards to which R&M holds their E-Bikes, as well as all components and especially the drive system. That's why all Riese & Müller E-Bikes are equipped with the industry-leading Bosch drive system.

Bosch Drive Unit

 

Bosch Performance CX motor

The Performance CX is the most powerful Bosch E-Bike motor ever – with pedal assistance of up to 300%, a maximum torque of 75 Nm, very sporty start-up characteristics and pedalling rate assistance up to 120 rpm. With “Direct Flow” you have a powerful push on the back wheel from speeds of just 20 rpm. Whether it be uphill or on the flat, this acceleration will inspire you. Another highlight in the new Performance CX motor is the eMTB mode, which replaces the previous Sport mode (this is displayed as Sport mode on the Intuvia Display). Here, the progressive motor assistance automatically adapts to the individual riding style regardless of pedal pressure. This ensures optimum assistance at all times, which really pays off on climbs.

Bosch Power Pak 500

Bosch Powerpack 500

With a capacity of 13,4 Ah, this premium lithium-ion battery has an energy reserve of 500 Wh and is designed to be mounted on the carrier. With the Bosch Standard charger provided, the 500 Wh carrier battery is fully charged and ready to be used again in just 4.5 hours. Like all Bosch batteries, it can be removed or charged directly on the bike.

Bosch Intuvia Display

Bosch Intuvia Display

The Intuvia Display gives you full control and a perfect overview at all times. It provides information about battery status, range, daily mileage, total mileage, ride time, current motor power, time, speed and average speed – clearly legible in any level of sunlight. On our automatic E-Bike models, the automatic version of the display also offers an option for controlling the pedal frequency. A USB interface allows MP3 players and mobile phones to be charged while riding too. It is operated via a remote control conveniently mounted on the handlebar grip.

 

None

You see - nothing.

On the Charger GX models, every detail is highly functional. Even the design. The cables run hidden under the top tube and through the frame.

 
 

None

Space in the luggage.

When a tour becomes a trip, the rucksack becomes panniers, baskets and rollers. The stable front and rear carrier in the frame colour of your Charger GX can handle even the heaviest luggage. Once round Lake Constance? Or from here to China? The Charger GX provides the space for your dreams and there’s more than enough capacity for your wanderlust.

None

Turns gravel tracks into freshly asphalted roads.

Cobbles can be as difficult to negotiate as any route out in the wild. The sensitive suspension fork and sprung Cane Creek Thudbuster ST seatpost with Brooks leather saddle offer a degree of comfort that means you barely notice uneven surfaces. Depending on the weight of the rider and the degree of comfort preferred, there are three levels of seatpost suspension to choose from.

None

More than just thick trousers: thick tires.

When you go on a trip, you want to experience things. Those things don’t usually happen on well-travelled paths, but rather off the beaten track and away from the roads. So we’ve equipped the Charger GX with wide, stable rims and all-terrain Schwalbe Rock Razor Fat Tires. The broad contact surface prevents the bike from sinking into soft ground, allowing you to conquer any unknown territory with flair.

 None

Twice the range. Twice the riding pleasure.

Riese & Müller is doubling the range of its E-Bikes with dual battery technology – in other words, by adding a second battery. This steps up battery capacity to 1,000 Wh. Using a charger, both batteries can be charged at the same time. Depending on your needs, you can also use just one battery to go on a ride. Its dual battery technology puts Riese & Müller at the top of its class in terms of riding range.

None

Quenches more than just your thirst for adventure.

You don’t need to stop to take a drink break. Thanks to the bottle holder eyelets under the top tube, you can have your drink at hand at all times. And drink it. Even at up to 45 km/h.

None

The fastest route to a standstill.

The hydraulic Shimano Deore XT disk brakes deliver maximum performance, no matter what the weather. The large brake disks allow the braking effect to be distributed most effectively. They don’t produce rim wear and impress with their consistent braking performance.

 None

Steal success from thieves.

With the optional ABUS Bordo Plus folding lock, the E-Bike can be securely fastened to virtually anything. It locks simultaneously with the battery, which means you only need one key for your bike.
