The Charger Vario is built for all purposes - explore and commute with ease and with style.
The Charger Vario has exploration and adventure in it's heart, take on roads, mountains, off road paths and the steepest of hills with ultimate confidence.
The Vario gearing option is continuously variable, which creates the feeling of one long gear. You can adjust the gear ratio quietly and smoothly to suit what terrain you are on.
Power on the inside.
One of the highlights of the Charger is its innovative 500Wh 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.
The Charger also has the capability to upgrade to a 1000Wh DualBattery which can power you up to 180 miles! Any range anxiety will become a thing of the past.
Everything Hidden in the Frame
Riese and Muller's exquisite design houses wires, the Bosch PowerTube battery and technical components in the frame, ultimately protecting key features and adding to the aesthetics.
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.
Shimano Deore Hydraulic Disc Brakes
The fastest way to come to a stop, Shimano Deore braking technology is undoubtedly one of the best on the market.
Reliable brakes are essential on eBikes, as is having maximum control and that's precisely what the Shimano Deore brakes give you.
Abus Security At All Times
Integrated into the frame is a carrier mount to house your gold rated Abus-Bordo Lock. It's highly practical, looks good and beefs up the security for your Charger.
Supernova as Standard
The best lights in the game, the E3 Supernova's 205 lumens light up the road at night and the brightness increases awareness to other road users.
Low beam mode adapts the focal point of the rider and extend the illumination of the road ahead when riding at high speeds.
Operated via the Bosch display, you have total control and never have to recharge them as they run off the Bosch battery.
