The 2016 Charge Plug 4 designed to fast rolling and to be used on any terrain. With its revised all round geometry, Aluminium frame capable of taking mudguard and rack this is the perfect choice for that daily commute or everyday adventure.
The Plug series
The frame on the Charge plug 4 is made from 6061 aluminium reducing the weight but maintaining the strength of its predecessor and allowing it to take all the abuse from city/commuting life. With the forks also being made from 6061 alloy steerer and using carbon fibre straight bladed legs, this allows them to bring down the weight making sure that the bike is not only strong but light.
Carbon bladed fork with alloy steerer
So the Plug is supported at the front end with a Carbon bladed fork with an Alloy steerer. The bladed legs absorb the vibration off the road giving that little more comfort and the Alloy steerer gives you that little extra strength at the front end but still keeping the weight down.
Shimano 105 11 speed groupset
With an additional gear and a substantial weight saving over its lower end relations, the 105 11 speed groupset offers great mid-range performance.
The 105 shifters have the same dual control setup as the top end groupsets and also feature an optical window to show which gear you have selected. Shifting is precise and consistent, right the way through the 11 speed cassette.
With its two piece hollow axle design, the 105 Hollowtech II chainset is both stiffer and lighter than a square taper chainset. Mounting the large diameter bearings outboard of the bottom bracket shell also provides increased stiffness and bearing life over standard cartridge units. With 50/34 compact gearing, you can tackle even the steepest climbs with confidence.
The Finishing kit
