Simple. Contemporary. Fast.
original Plug was designed to be the simplest and most reliable bicycle that you could find on the market. Now coupled with technical advancements to the components you can choose from a refined single speed Plug 1, right through to the latest SRAM Rival disc equipped Plug 5.
Cro-mo frame and premium steel fork
The frame on the Charge plug 2 is made from Cro-mo steel giving it the even more strength than premium steel needed to take all the abuse from city/commuting life. With the forks being made from Premium steel and using small profile tubing, this allows them to bring down the weight making sure that the bike is not only strong but light.
Single speed wheels
Charge have made up a set of their own branded wheels to go on the Plug 2, they have used a pair of Charge Urban double-walled alloy rims and then laced them to a set of fully sealed alloy single speed hubs. Finishing them off charge have put a set of their Coaster tires in a 32c width to give you the traction and stability needed for tackling the mean streets.
Promax caliper brakes
The finishing kit is is made up of a combination of Charge parts. Using Charge bars, stem, seatpost and to finish it off Charge throw in their award winning Spoon saddle.

Charge is a British-based cycle brand, drawing on years of experience to create practical and refined bicycles for the everyday cyclist. Cycling has exploded in popularity and so has consumer choice – choosing a bicycle can be confusing, so Charge decided to strip back the product line and launch the three bike categories that define Charge best: the Plug, Grater, and Cooker. The Plug is a multipurpose road bike with progressive geometry and fast-rolling large volume tires that provide superior comfort, speed and durability. The Grater takes the performance aspects of the Plug frame and adds the functionality benefits of fenders and flat bars for urban use. The all-new Cooker bikes are designed around the new 27Plus wheels – blending the speed and rollover of a 29er, the cushioning of a fat bike tire and the quick agility of a 27.5, all with the unparalleled grip on any terrain. This is the new standard in off-road biking.
