The New Charger.

For the daily commute. For the weekend. For the eyes.

The New Charger wants to get out. Climb mountains with ease, compete with the wind, turn your daily commute into an experience. And it wants to be seen. The integrated Bosch PowerTube battery allows the Charger's familiar yet new, original design to come into its own – you can expect to see your colleagues watching you longingly from their cars. The New Charger brings so much fun to everyday life that you'll be itching to throw in an extra trip at the weekend. The New Charger, with its versatile configuration and high-quality components, is of course perfectly equipped for that, too.

Available in three models: The New Charger GT Touring, New Charger GH Nuvinci (below), the New Charger Mountain along with the low-step "Mixte" New Charger found here.

R&M Charger Mixte Video Review and Ride Test

  • New Charger GT Touring features the sporty Shimano SLX 11-speed, 11-42 cassette and chain.
  • New Charger GH Nuvinci: features the continuous NuVinci 380 hub gear, and a Gates carbon belt drive so you are always in the perfect gear: no gaps between shifts, 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.  It also has a higher overall weight rating of 160 kg (353 lbs).

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.

 

Power from within.

The highlight of the New Charger is its innovative Bosch PowerTube battery, which is fully integrated into the down tube. When it needs to be charged it can be removed with a handle or can be charged directly on the bike. To remove the battery, the down tube has a plastic cover so that the tube remains hermetically sealed while you ride, protecting its internals from moisture and stone chipping.

Twice the range. Twice the riding pleasure.

Riese & Müller is doubling the range of its E-Bikes with DualBattery technology. In addition to the Bosch PowerTube battery, which is fully integrated into the frame, a standard battery is placed on the down tube. This increases the capacity to an astounding 1,000 Wh and propels Riese & Müller to the fore when it comes to range. The batteries are cleverly integrated into the frame triangle so that the additional weight has no noticeable impact on riding behaviour. Besides being able to go twice as far on long trips, you no longer have to worry about your range in your day-to-day riding either.

Everything perfectly framed.

On the New Charger models, every detail is highly functional. Including the design. Because the cables are concealed in the frame. The superbly finished frame thus comes into its own and all key technical components are well protected.

Delights the legs, pleases the eye.

The frame of the New Charger has everything covered: exclusive design with familiar contours, remarkable engineering skill and – the battery. Easily overlooked at first glance because it fits perfectly into the overall image, the fully integrated Bosch PowerTube delivers just as much power as external batteries. The colour concept of the frame emphasises the sportiness with sharp dividing lines and gives the New Charger a fast and agile look.

Practical can be this beautiful.

The New Charger strives for greater things – this can even be seen in the chainstay. It brings clear advantages besides a sporty look. In versions with a conventional chain it prevents the chain chipping the metal frame. The elevated position of the chainstay also allows for a configuration with a low-maintenance carbon belt drive.

Simple. Indestructible.

Anyone riding an E-Bike with a carbon belt drive from Gates is at peace. And in two ways. Because on the one hand the innovative drive offers a wonderfully smooth ride and great riding comfort. At the same time it is unbelievably low-maintenance and performs its tasks with the utmost reliability. In all models the carbon belt drive is fitted with a NuVinci gear.

Turns gravel tracks into freshly asphalted roads.

Cobbles can be as difficult to negotiate as any route out in the wild. The parallelogram-shaped sprung 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. The parallelogram-shaped sprung seatpost is not fitted to the New Charger mountain.

The fastest route to a standstill.

Considering all the technical improvements the bike has gone through over the last 100 years: strong, reliable brakes are still essential. That is why we use hydraulic Shimano Deore, Deore XT or Magura MT-4 disc brakes, depending on the model, which guarantee maximum control in any situation and any weather. Their large brake discs allow the braking effect to be optimally applied as needed. They don’t produce rim wear and impress with their consistent braking performance.

Helps night owls see in the dark.

Ride with excellent road illumination at all times with the E3 LED headlamps from Supernova or the IQ-X headlamps from Busch & Müller on the HS models and the New Charger mountain. Only daylight is brighter than their exceptional brightness. They are operated via the Bosch display, while the energy is supplied via the battery. The HS models feature permanent lighting.

With no holder, there`s no holding back.

The E-Bike features a water bottle, but without a single holder attached. This technical feat is revolutionary. The front cover plate of the frame is equipped with two mounting studs on the right-hand side, specially designed for direct mounting of the cageless water bottle from Fabric. It doesn’t get any easier than this when it comes to keeping a bottle within perfect reach during a ride. If you don't take the DualBattery option you can attach another traditional water bottle cage in the frame triangle.

Your Personal Anti-Theft Device.

One thing is certain: with the New Charger you always have the ABUS Bordo folding lock at hand. With the integrated carrier mount it has its set place and comes as standard. It locks simultaneously with the battery lock, so you only need one key for your E-Bike. This is not only very practical, but it looks great too. On the New Charger mountain the lock is included with the optional carrier.

 

R&M New Charger Options:

Petrol in the blood. Current in the tank.

Ultra-modern Bosch lithium-ion batteries with a 500 Wh energy reserve provide the power for our E-Bikes. The battery capacity of 1,000 Wh is achieved by means of DualBattery Technology, which makes use of a second battery. This technology doubles the range, which allows for tours twice as long and makes charging intervals considerably less frequent. A 500 Wh Bosch PowerTube battery is installed in the down tube as standard, which is fully integrated into the frame and therefore not visible. For the DualBattery version, a 500 Wh frame battery is mounted on the outside of the down tube.
