Based in the leafy hills of Somerset, England you will find Charge Bike engineers and designers that are infused with passion and curiosity for all things bikes. Charge goes against the grain and streamlines bicycle design in order to suit function. Each product in their lineup is a piece of innovation that breeds joy and furthers the culture of cycling.
Yes, there is no doubt about it the Plug 5 is a simple bike with nice features that shape your cycling experience. Charge went for the 3/2.5 alloy titanium when it came to revamping the Plug frame. This ratio of titanium yields a high strength with smaller weight penalities. Whether you decide to bikepack around or commute to your local coffee shop, the rack and fender mounts will come in handy for the extra baggage. While the frame is durable and practical for everyday use, the carbon straight blade fork helps reduce road chatter adding extra comfort to your ride.
The Plug 5 is built with SRAM's Rival 1 componentry. A SRAM S350 40-tooth crankset spins the wide 10-42 cassette. Sram Rival levers take control of the SRAM centerline rotors. This Plug rolls on the tubeless ready Alex Draw 1.9 disc rims laced to their own Charge Lite hubs. For 2016, Charge opted to wrap the wheelset with wider Maxxis Roamer tires, 42c wide to be exact with a custom skinwall. Keep your mind churning with adventures because the Plug 5 is game.
