The Charger GX is equally at home gobbling up DC tough streets or loaded up with camping gear to ride 180 miles on the C&O canal towpath. The porteur front rack weighs the bike in a more balanced way, and is just the ticket to load up on groceries, or pile up with your bedroll for that solo adventure you have been dreaming of.
The Charger series has been very popular because of its upright but sporty riding position, really the perfect balance between comfort and proper bike handling. Featuring a real air suspension fork that can be custom pre-loaded for rider+load weight, and lockout for efficiency on smooth pavement.
The weathered Brooks Leather saddle breaks in over time to conform to the rider body - and a stout thudbuster suspension seatpost takes the edge off the potholes.
Rock Razor Fat Tires from Schwalbe - lower air pressure make for more comfortable ride and a wide contact patch with nobs for off road grip!
Bosch's most powerful motor is tuned for climbing trails fast, and it is the top climber in real world testing on or off road. It is limited to 20mph assistance so if you need a higher top speed the Performance Speed is the way to go. The Performance Line CX drive has what Bosch calls Uphill Flow - support starts at very low pedal frequencies – this makes it easier to set off when already on a hill or to drive out of tight curves.
Dual batteries are boss for long tours with lots of luggage, routes with steep climbs, or if you just don't want to have to worry about recharging Riese & Muller bikes with the dual battery have special smart circuitry that shifts load on the batteries by alternating the load in 5% increments. This increases the service life or "charge cycles" - the number of times the battery can be completely drained and recharged. A 2nd battery will add about 7lbs.
Every Riese & Muller is a custom configured build to your selection of options. Allow 6-8 week delivery time after order is placed. Please visit the store or call us to get your perfect ride all set up.
