Charge offers 3 electric bike models at the moment and those are City, Comfort and XC. The Charge XC is the top of the line model intended for all terrain adventures as well as for city cruising.
The Charge XC stands out from the crowd. It features fully integrated motor into the frame as inconspicuously as possible, making the bike looking sleek and powerful at the same time. The Shimano E5000, 250W motor is perfectly visually integrated into the frame with black cover, but it still looks like it belongs on the bike.
The motor receives its power from a removable Shimano E8035, 504WH Battery with ABUS Lock. The battery is integrated into the down tube. As expected for an eMTB, the XC relies on sturdy components. The XC comes with SR Suntour XCM 34, 100mm coil fork with preload adjuster, powerful Shimano MT200 hydraulic disc brakes with 180mm rotors and Goodyear Peak 29 x 2.25 puncture resistant tires.
