Riese & Müller Supercharger GX Rohloff
The Supercharger GX Rohloff from Riese & Müller, is their flagship ebike for the 2019 season and the Rolls Royce of electric bikes.
New E-14 Electronic Shifting on 2019 Models
New for 2019, and in response to huge customer demand, E-14 electronic shifting now comes as standard. At the touch of a button, the Rohloff responds instantaneously with smooth, effortless shifting. Sheer luxury in itself.
At the heart of this top of the range tourer is the Rohloff gearing. Its huge transmission ratio, over 520%, with 14-speed hub gears puts the Supercharger GX Rohloff in a class of its own. The Rohloff has been developed for both pros and performance oriented hobby cyclists who can appreciate it because of its reliability. Perfect single gear ratios, wide range of gears, low maintenance and easy operation. Its weight and efficiency are ideal even for pro racing. The sealed gearbox ensures reliability and durability even under the toughest conditions.
The even increments of 13.6% between gears make it possible to ride continuously at peak performance. The overall range makes sure that you always have access to the right gear regardless of situation. Pure fun is guaranteed. Make no mistake, the Rohloff is practically bullet proof, maintenance free and represents the ultimate in gear shifting. Operated by a twist shifter, the Rohloff shifts simply by pulling separate cables up or down. The indexing of the shifting lies not in the shifter as with common designs, but inside the hub. There is no wear on the indexing system nor is there any need to adjust it.
Furthermore, fitted as standard is the silent and bomb-proof Gates carbon drive belt for even greater luxury.
2 x 500Wh Bosch PowerTubes as Standard
The GX Rohloff version of the Supercharger is one of several in Riese & Müller’s range. Each one features stunning new technology and unique design.The 2019 Supercharger comes as standard with 2 x 500Wh Bosch PowerTubes. Both are beautifully and cleverly integrated into RM’s unique frame design.
Riese & Müller is doubling the range of its electric bikes with dual battery technology. The Supercharger has the ability to charge both batteries at the same time. In addition, each battery delivers power to the bike at the same time also. Its dual battery technology puts Riese & Müller at the top of its class in terms of riding range.
Most striking is its multi-award-winning design, followed by its athletic features. The Supercharger models are like a six-pack cast in aluminium. A precisely-conceived geometry guarantee the ultimate in riding comfort. The Bosch Performance CX drive delivers above and beyond with its high torque. With 2 x 500Wh batteries as standard, the Supercharger GX Rohloff simply keeps on going. With its tremendous, high-torque driving force and pedal assistance of up to 300%, the CX motor is capable of conquering any mountain and terrain.
The Supercharger GX Rohloff comes with some nifty anti-theft features too. An ABUS Bordo Plus wheel lock mounted behind the seatpost prevents opportunistic theft. Both the ABUS and battery lock share the same key, which means you only need one key to do both jobs.
Pleasing aesthetics are maintained via hidden cable runs under the top tube and through the frame. Furthermore, a Cane Creek Thudbuster ST suspension seatpost ensures ultra rider comfort. A set of Busch & Müller high intensity lamps front and rear ensure rider visibility at all times.
