The Grater range of urban bicycles is built around lightweight aluminium frames and reliable parts for riding in any weather. Durable wheels, puncture resistant tyres and anti-rust chains are just some of the features you will find across the range to help keep maintenance to a minimum. Charge's award-winning saddles and grips are fitted to every model.
A Shimano Sora/Acera 9 speed drivetrain is what powers the Grater 2 up the rough lanes or tracks, making it that little bit easier for you to get to your destination. The reliable and trusty Shimano indexing should keep your confidence up and never let you down. With a FSA Tempo compact chainset to assist the drivetrain you shall not only be able to power up the hills will ease but descend at a fast pace.
With a bike that roles as quick as the Grater 2 you need a set of brakes that can support you, Charge have fitted up a set of Pro-Max Render cable actuated disc brakes. With 160mm 6 bolt rotors there shouldn't be an issue braking in any weather condition or whatever the terrain is.
With an urban bike you need urban wheels, so charge hooked up the Grater with a set of WTB SX19 double-walled alloy rims, they have then laced these to a set of Charge Alloy shield hubs. with regards to tyres the wheels have been rapped in a set of Continental City Ride II in a 32c width which have a puncture protection layer to reduce the chances of punctures. Overall these are an awesome wheelset for the urban style riding that can take a little more abuse than the average 700c wheelset.
The finishing kit is is made up of a combination of Charge parts. Taking control of the bar, stem and seatpost with the award winning Spoon saddle.
Each bike is fully built, tested and tuned by Wiggle's team of qualified bike mechanics to ensure you're bike arrives in perfect condition. To find out which size fits you click on the size guide tab above.

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 tyres that provide superior comfort, speed and durability. The Grater takes the performance aspects of the Plug frame and adds the functionality benefits of mudguards 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 tyre and the quick agility of a 27.5, all with unparalleled grip on any terrain. This is the new standard in off-road biking.
