What it's built for:
The Charger is Riese & Müller’s venerable do-it-all city commuter. A hardtail frame and suspension fork balance performance and comfort for an unbeatable ride whether you’re headed to work or off out on gravel roads for a weekend adventure. As with all R&M’s you have a plethora of color and configuration options to get a bespoke bike built just for you. This Touring version uses a conventional derailleur system for a wide range of smooth-shifting gears with parts that can easily be serviced and replaced. The Mixte frame version uses a low-step design great for shorter riders or those with mobility issues, but it works great for riders of all shapes and sizes. This HS version upgrades to Bosch’s Performance Line Speed motor which increases maximum assisted speed to a zippy 45kph.
Why we love it:
The Charger finds a perfect balance between performance, utility, and comfort making it an electric commuter that’s hard not to love. With an integrated rear cargo carrier and optional front rack, you’ll have plenty of options for taking everything you need along, while a fully-equipped build kit means this bike is ready to ride every day as soon as it leaves the shop. But the Charger goes further than other commuter bikes with a capable ride and build kit that is begging to leave the city streets behind on the weekends and get out to explore.
