Riese & Müller Charger

Features

  • Made for You in Germany: Riese & Müller assembles each bike in their factory in Weiterstadt, Germany to your specifications. This means that you can choose things like color, motor style, battery, drivetrain, and accessories. The New Wheel is here to help you to design the perfect bike. Learn more.
  • The Mixte Model is Here: This is the Mixte model of the Charger, which lowers the stepover height while preserving the aesthetic and functional qualities of the Charger.
  • NuVinci + Belt Drive = Amazing: While lots of drivetrain options exist for the Charger, we're particularly excited by the NuVinci infinitely variable rear hub transmission paired with a Gates Carbon Belt Drive.
  • Do Anything, Go Anywhere: We like to call this bike an 'all arounder' which means it's a terrific do-anything bike. It's a capable commuter, a sturdy rough-road adventurer, even a weekend camper.
  • Bosch PowerPack 500 Standard: Designed around the new Bosch 500Wh PowerPack. Dual Battery option not available in the Charger Mixte model.
  • Totally, 100%, Fully Loaded: The Charger comes fully loaded with everything you need to ride, including a shock absorbing seatpost, integrated front and rear lights, sturdy metal fenders and fantastic tires.
  • Two Frame Sizes: Our staff can help you determine the perfect size frame for you. Frame size options include 46cm and 49cm seat tube length, ideal for riders 5'3" - 5'11".
  • The New Wheel True Warranty™: Riese & Müller's warranty backed by The New Wheel's professional service department. Includes 5 year frame coverage, 2 years for electronics, and 1 year for all other components.

Our Take

All Riese & Muller bikes are assembled in their factory in Weisenstadt Germany. This means you can customize virtually everything about the bike, including color, drivetrain, motor and battery capacity. Additionally Riese & Muller cargo bikes have many cargo bike accessories for the Packster.


The 'All Arounder', Defined

This bike is perfect for urban riders with weekend adventures in mind. Of course, you can get more comfort from the fully suspended Delite, or more cargo from the Packster or the Load, but the Charger sits squarely in the middle of the pack - doing virtually everything well while weighing less.

Mixte Model Offers Lower Step With No Sacrifice in Performance

If you're looking for a lower stepover height bike with tons of capability, lots of options and tons of bells & whistles, the Charger is a perfect solution.

Energize Your Commute

The aesthetic of the Charger is simple and refined - with subtly tapered and squared frame tubes, elevated chainstays that are especially practical for internally geared hubs like the Nuvinci, and a contemporary palette of color options.



A Unique Flavor of Charger

The Charger Mixte with Nuvinci brings low maintenance, intuitive shifting and assist, low step-over and classy looks, making this an ideal solution for SF commuters. But don't be fooled, front suspension, a shock-absorbing seatpost and upright ride position will enable way more than just commuting.

Two Bosch Motor Options

A high-speed Bosch Performance Speed motor option on the Charger will help you devour those miles in record time. Or, look to the Bosch CX Drive for unbeatable torque yielding amazing climbing ability.
