Our take on the Riese & Müller Charger3

The 2021 Charger3 is the latest and greatest in the line of reliable electric bikes from German designers and manufacturers Riese & Müller. Integration of components is key to the Charger’s smooth and angular frame lines. The Gen.4 Bosch motor is housed low and central, for improved e-bike handling. Likewise, the concealed 500Wh Bosch PowerTube battery is built into bike’s downtube, keeping it invisible and protected. Designed to be an athletic electric bike, the Charger has been one of Riese & Müller’s most successful models over the years; a bit more performance-oriented than the Nevo or the Culture, and a little bit more comfortable and cruising oriented compared to the Roadster or the Delite.

The Charger3 is undoubtedly a performance electric bike. It comes equipped with high-level components, and it is built to handle a tough life. The heart of the bike is the reliable Bosch Gen.4 motor system. With the battery inside the downtube thanks to Bosch’s revolutionary PowerTube technology, a second 500Wh battery is an optional extra if you want to go nuts and double the bike’s assisted range. In terms of the drivetrain, again we find only top-level components from Shimano, Enviolo, and Rohloff in tandem with Gates and their superb carbon belt drive.

The long wheelbase, air suspension, and fat tyres give the Charger3 an exceptionally comfortable and stable ride. Whether you’re boosting through town or pootling on the towpath, the bike handles in a very civilised manner. Because of the variable assistance given by the Bosch electric motor, the Charger can be propelled with as much or as little of your own effort as you desire. If you want to feel your quads burn, simply put it in ECO mode and find a big hill to climb. Likewise, if you’re feeling tired or saving your energy for later, simply set the assistance level to TURBO and let the motor do the lion’s share. The Charger is a bike that is always ready for an adventure, and it isn’t afraid of getting a bit muddy on the route to finding one.
