Charge - a bicycle company. Here at Charge we specialise in uncomplicated yet functional bicycles and frames with a distinct and contemporary styling. We design our frames using carefully selected tube sets which are specifically chosen to fit our requirements. Our main love is for Steel and Titanium tubes from renowned tubing makers Tange. They have a long pedigree in producing materials of the

highest quality and as a result Tange tubing makes up the mainstay of our range which covers everything from cutting edge titanium

mountain and road frames to simple fixed gear bikes. We intend Charge to be a breath of fresh air in a world of generic hydroformed aluminium, carbon and expensive, complicated dual suspension.

Our components are designed with the ethos that form follows function. Our multi award winning Spoon saddle is testament to this,

being one of the most comfortable and versatile saddles available. A wide range of components including bars, hubs, grips, saddles, wheels, forks and much more are all designed to lead the way in performance, aesthetics and durability.

At Charge we design our products to inspire you to get out there and ride, no matter what type of cycling you’re into.
