E-bikes are taking the world by storm, and the Riese & Muller Charger3 is the e-bike version of a BMW. These bikes are custom-built with German precision and laser-focused attention to detail that leaves absolutely no stone unturned in their quest to build the absolute best e-bike for urban and rural terrain - even the roughest single-track dirt trail. Travel in luxury, safety, and ultimate comfort with the Charger3 Rohloff e-bike.     

Any good e-bike worth its salt has a motor and battery up to the task of hauling goods and people, and Riese & Muller knocks it out of the park with its Bosch systems. Powered by a Bosch PowerTube 625 battery that provides up to 125km of range, the Performance Line CX motor provides more torque than other motors, giving 85Nm acceleration at low cadences to make uphill journeys a lot sweeter. It reads your pedal input 1,000 times a second for an extremely accurate and sensitive intuition that boosts you with just the right amount of power exactly when you need it. The Extended Boost feature allows for smooth traction over stone, root, and cobblestone obstacles - even when going uphill.  

The Nyon touchscreen glass display is designed for off-road exploring and fitness. It supplies cadence and calorie information, connects to a heart rate monitor, and provides responsive navigation through fitness and mapping apps. Save recently-visited addresses and place trail markers on your maps to make getting back to the trailhead or meeting place a breeze. 

The Rohloff Speedhub is trusted worldwide as the absolute best internal hub on the market with 14 speeds that can shift under load and minimal maintenance required, and the Gates belt drive adopts motorcycle technology to give you 30,000km of riding before needing replacement - over three times longer than any chain. The GX option adds grippy Schwalbe all-terrain tires and Ergon GP3 grips for exceptional control on even the roughest ground. A rear carrier allows you to bring whatever you need along for the ride, be it tour panniers or a dry set of clothes for après-ride dinner and drinks with friends, and the included ABUS lock ensures your bike remains yours with solid German engineering and construction.

Combine these with Magura hydraulic disc brakes, a Cane Creek New Thudbuster seatpost, mega-bright Supernova M99 light system, Selle Royal saddle, Schwalbe tires, and a Suntour front suspension system, and you get the crème de la crème of electric bikes - the Riese & Muller Charger3 GT Rohloff.

RIESE & MULLER COMPANY PROFILE: The founders of Riese & Muller describe themselves as cyclists, engineers, inventors, friends, entrepreneurs, and fathers - and each of these contribute to the design of their bikes. Beginning the company with the Birdy folding bike, they've dialed in their cargo and urban e-bikes to offer full suspension for every style of road and track. Overall, Riese & Muller create products that are supremely comfortable to ride, intuitive, and made to last - a true testament to German engineering.

Will this take up a lot of space on the road?

No more than any other bike you pass in the bike lane!

How does a Riese & Muller compare to other e-bikes?

Honestly, there isn't really a comparison to be made - Riese & Muller are literally the best e-bikes on the market. It's like comparing any other car to a Land Rover. Now that urban cycling is taking off, we're seeing more and more e-bikes on the streets ferrying people all over the place, but most were designed for use in cities with paved roads and bike paths. Riese & Muller has achieved the pinnacle of e-bikes in speccing theirs with full-suspension GT and GX options, meaning you can take them off-road - on dirt track, mountain roads, even forested trails. They're armed to the teeth with every luxury item you could ever think of - Magura hydraulic disc brakes, Thudbuster or dropper seatposts, internal gear hubs, Gates belt drives, blindingly bright Supernova and Busch & Muller lighting systems, and the absolute best cockpit control computer systems. They're intuitive and built to last.

How the heck do I buy one of these?

We've done all the legwork for you! Take a read through our extensive spec options, build up your bike just the way you want it, place an order and we'll be in touch when your bike arrives fully built!

Can I use this bike for a business?

Absolutely. With the smorgasbord of options for cargo boxes, rear racks, and on/off-road capabilities, this bike will excel at whatever you ask it to do. Email eric@curbsidecycle.com if you’re interested in discussing a Riese & Muller for your business or business idea.

What is an internal gear hub?

In Europe, a bike with an internal gear hub is what makes it a definitive city bike. Because the chain isn’t derailed up and down a set of external cogs (using a derailleur), the chain will never fall off again, and best of all, the chain can be covered so you can wear whatever you want. The gears are sealed inside the rear hub and they hold a tune two times longer than a derailleur, minimizing tune-ups and allowing you to store the bike outside throughout the winter problem-free.

What is a belt drive?

Belt drives have been developed over the last 30 years for use in racing engines and motorcycles. They are a band of nylon teeth held together with a series of carbon fibre cords, paired with alloy chainrings and stainless-steel cogs. They've recently made the jump to bikes because they're nearly silent, don't require lube (and are much more winter-proof as a result), don't rust or get jammed with debris, and last for up to 30,000km of riding before needing replacement. We don't see them often on North American bikes because they can't be used with external derailleurs, only internal hubs or crank-based gearboxes.

Can I store it outside?

Of course. But if you are storing it outside during the winter, we strongly recommend going with the Vario or Rohloff internal hubs over an external-gear Touring derailleur, as they're built for year-round use and keep maintenance costs to a minimum. Should you have your heart set on a derailleur Riese & Muller, be sure to pick up a Bike Parka to keep it covered from ice and snow.

Does the battery lock to the bike?

Yep. That’s one expensive chunk of Lithium Ion. Frame-mounted batteries lock on to the down-tube and only you can remove them with the key provided. Internal frame batteries are built into the bike, so no need to worry!

How long does it take to charge the battery?

It takes about five hours to charge a single battery from flat to full, and twice as long if you have a dual battery system on your Riese & Muller. The batteries don't have memory so there is no problem if you only charge the battery a little bit, halfway, or whatever. You’ll get over 1000 complete charges, which is typically 5+ years of use before a replacement is required.

Is the unit serviceable?

You bet it is. For years the e-assist market was dominated by small fly-by-night companies with good ideas and no balance sheet. The consumer took all the risk and were often left with technical assistance phone numbers that no longer worked. Riese & Muller partner with Bosch, a huge player in the e-bike market – and they are sophisticated, which means they are updatable, diagnosable, and if something does break, fundamentally repairable.

What's the lifetime on the battery?

On average you will get about 18,000-20,000 miles from the battery before it needs to be replaced.

This is expensive! Will it get stolen?

Estimates are that over 90% of bicycle theft is tied to cash-for-drugs (unfortunately) and most bike losses are due to inferior or cheap locks. Make sure you buy a good ABUS U-lock or a chain and your bike will be safe. You can read more about bike theft here.

What’s the warranty?

For the original owner, Riese & Muller offers a two-year warranty for manufacturer defects on frame and fork, five years for frame / swingarm breakage, and two years on the battery. Does not include wear and tear.
