For 2016 the Charge Cooker SS 27.5″ mountain bike continues to provoke with its design objectives of simplicity and efficiency, but with added twists to its spec that kicks up the performance whilst still ensuring dependability. It is a single speed drivetrain bike with an absolutely rigid fork, a high-quality machine you’ll be able to use to hone skills, strengthen efficiency or experience a trail bike you wouldn’t have to debris with.
Charge bikes are known for achieving a smart balance of high performance and affordability, and the Cooker SS continues the mission. The Tange Infinity chromoly frame offers an exceptionally smooth ride, absorbing road and trail chatter as only steel can. The fork is a matched Tange Infinity chromoly design, rigid, light enough and plenty tough, so your mountain climbing and more intense efforts turn out to be more efficient but never harsh. Again, that is way to the “just right” give and feel of steel, which offers you the very comfortable option of riding pavement to get to the path.
Backing up this rock solid fuselage is a single speed drivetrain with an 18T cog and a Truvativ E400 crank sporting a 32T chainring and a bashguard. This gearing combination is very good for pretty much any trail. Braking is handled by a fantastic set of Tektro hydraulic disc brakes with 180mm and 160mm rotors front and rear. They will shed speed in virtually any weather or terrain.
The Cooker SS sports tubeless-able tires and rims, rolls 27.5″ wheels now, and offers the entire handling advantages. Just add sealant and the WTB Trailblazer 2.8″ tires, with Dual DNA Compound, set up beautifully with the Custom Charge Midi 40mm ID rims. The performance is tangible, allowing you to run pressures not up to chances are you’ll thought conceivable. You’ll be able to benefit from the lower rotating weight of the wheels whilst reducing the potential for flats and have more traction than every other setup.
