The Charger3. The lightness of riding.
Whether for the daily commute or sporty rides, the Charger3 boasts sporty geometry, a dynamic chassis with suspension fork and comfort seatpost, and the latest generation of Bosch motor, making it the ideal E-Bike for everyday life. Thanks to clever details, daylight-bright lighting and continuous light, it is perfect for riding in any weather and can be parked outside with ease. And for anyone who wants to go further away or higher up, the DualBattery 1125 option offers a range of up to 150 kilometres and more.
Frame design and battery options
Delights the legs, pleases the eye.
It’s all in the frame: a highly functional design featuring characteristic contours, remarkable engineering prowess, all lines and cables and – the 500 Wh battery too. Easily overlooked at first glance, it blends perfectly into the overall image. The optional 625 Wh battery is also fully integrated. And if that’s not enough for you, opt for the DualBattery 1125 option with an additional 500 Wh carrier battery.
See and be seen.
The right, powerful headlamp for your Charger3 Mixte model enhances visibility in road traffic. During the day, the daytime running light ensures that you are seen even better, while in the dark bright and even illumination shows the way. Oncoming traffic is not dazzled by this. And if you need to stop quickly, the Magura disc brakes pack quite a punch.
Suspension fork and suspension seatpost
Turns gravel tracks into freshly tarred roads.
Uneven trails can be encountered anywhere, even in the city: cobblestones, gravel paths, small potholes or cracks in the concrete can detract from your riding enjoyment. The sprung seatpost and sensitive suspension fork offer so much comfort that you’ll barely feel any bumps.
Displays, from simple to smart.
We have reinvented the E-Bike’s cockpit: regardless of whether you choose the optional cockpit with Kiox display, the Bosch SmartphoneHub or the Nyon display, all three options are perfectly integrated in the handlebar and feature clean cable routing. The angle-adjustable stem of the cockpit can be adapted for a comfortable or sportier sitting position. But the standard equipment with Intuvia display also provides a tidy appearance.
Luggage system and special equipment
Up to almost any task.
The standard carrier with MIK system enables baskets and bags to be attached quickly and securely. You can also transport additional luggage safely to your destination with the frame-mounted front luggage carrier (with or without bag). And if you often ride off-road, you can choose the GX option with all-terrain tires, wide flat pedals and ergonomic bar end grips. But if you need an E-Bike for heavier loads up to 160 kg, the optional Heavy-Duty-Package is guaranteed to fit the bill.
