The Charger mixte.
The most beautiful side of nature is its wildest.

The lavender field you’re riding through stretches ahead of you as far as the eye can see. Its beauty competes with the Alpine poppy on the summit of the mountain you climbed last week with your Charger Mixte. The Bosch Performance motors and optional belt drive have been created to make conquering even the steepest mountain passes a breeze. A precisely-conceived geometry with optimised step-through height guarantees the ultimate in riding comfort. Across the field, birds show you the way to the distance. Somewhere beyond the horizon is the city, and with it, everyday life. Bring it on. The Charger Mixte is ready for anything.

The Charger is available in four models, plus the Charger Mixte Mountain found here.

  • Charger Touring was designed for sporty riding and uses the  proven technology of the dynamic Shimano Deore XT 10-speed derailleur gear with high effectiveness.  It includes Big Ben 28x2 balloon tires for comfortable rides.
  • Charger Nuvinci features the comfortable, continuous NuVinci hub gear and Gates belt drive, ensuring you are always on the move in the perfect gear. The gears are also virtually maintenance- and wear-free.  Choose this option to be able to shift to any gear at any time and to avoid the maintenance and repair/replacement requirements found with a standard chain, derailluer and cassette configuration.  Read more about the Nuvinci hub system here.
  • Charger GT Touring features a number of upgrades compared to the regular touring, including 27.5 x 2.4 Schwalbe Moto-X Fat Tires, Shimano Deore XT 11, Shimano Deore XT brakes, and an upgraded Suntour Aion LO-R suspension fork.  Experience the ultimate in riding pleasure thanks to Schwalbe Moto-X Fat Tires and extra-wide rims. Riding with low air pressure guarantees grip and traction, improves road handling and ensures sensational comfort rarely seen on a hardtail. Gears are shifted with the sporty Shimano Deore XT 11-speed derailleur gear.
  • Charger GT Nuvinci upgrades to 27.5 x 2.4 Schwalbe Moto-X Fat Tires to make sure you have all the grip you need, on any surface.  Whether it be city or country, forest or field, with the wide Schwalbe Moto-X Tires, you’ll be gliding effortlessly over any uneven terrain. What’s more, the continuous NuVinci hub gear without gaps between shifts and the Gates belt drive make the Charger GT nuvinci incredibly comfortable.  Read more about the Nuvinci hub system here.

Charger GT Nuvinci Video Review:

 

None

Low step-through. Highly sporty appearance.

Even a parked Charger Mixte looks sporty enough to look like it's ready to lock horns with mountain goats 2,500 metres up. The reason? The high chainstay. It also allows a version with a robust and easy-care carbon belt drive. So sporty riders can throw off those chains and actually get started in the race on the mountain.

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.

You see - nothing!

On the Charger models, every detail delivers superb functionality. Even the design. The cables run hidden under the top tube and through the frame.

Turns gravel roads into freshly tarred ones.

Cobbles can be as difficult to negotiate as any route out in the wild. The optional parallelogram-shaped suspension seatpost and sensitive suspension fork offer so much comfort that you'll barely feel any bumps. Depending on the weight of the rider and the degree of comfort preferred, there are three levels of seatpost suspension to choose from.

None

Your Personal Anti-Theft Device.

Park your Charger wherever you want. Only you can take it away. The ABUS Bordo Plus folding lock is included as standard with all GH, GT, and GX models, and is optional for the mountain models. All other models are equipped with a frame lock as standard. The ABUS Bordo Plus shuts simultaneously with the battery lock, which means you only need one key for your E-Bike.

None

A bright future.

Always ride with excellent road illumination thanks to the LED headlamps from Supernova. Only daylight is brighter than their exceptional brightness. They are operated via the Bosch Display, while the energy is supplied via the battery.

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

Load up, set off.

Baskets, panniers and child seats can be secured in record time to the carrier thanks to the “snapit” system from racktime. With just a click, your payload can be changed quicker than a pit stop. Accessories can be obtained from your dealer.
