Imagine you were tasked with designing a high-quality electric bike that could stand in for your everyday commuting vehicle? It has to be super reliable, ride smoothly on the roads, be as comfortable as possible and classic good looks wouldn't go amiss either.
You would probably go for a motor brand which is reknowned for its reliability and strength, and you would probably work with a bike manufacturer with as much experience as it's possible to have in the bike industry.
That's what you get with the Gazelle Medeo T10 HMB Elite. Any bike with the Bosch Performance motor is a thrill to ride. It has enough power for most applications. Add that to the Gazelle frame that neatly integrates the battery within the downtube, the wide Schwalbe tyres and a back-saving high front end, you're looking at an electric bike that allows for a comfortable ride, day in, day out.
It's good to see that Gazelle has used the Intuvia display for the handlebars. We like the other displays that Bosch have created too, but the Intuvia seems to strike a balance between simplicity, and useability that we really like.
Don't limit this bike to commuting though! It can do so much more than that. Use the power of the Bosch Performance motor and those wide tyres to go on an e-bike tour. For longer days in the saddle perhaps invest in a gel saddle but otherwise take advantage of a superbly built bike that will serve you well for work and leisure.
Summary: a quality bike through and through that will transform the drudge of a commute into a joy.

About the Gazelle brand
Over the course of 125 years, Royal Dutch Gazelle has grown from a small two-man business selling three bicycles into the biggest Dutch bicycle brand selling over 250,000 bicycles a year. This makes Gazelle the market leader in the Netherlands and the bikes are still assembled in the original Gazelle factory in Dieren.
They are very proud of their “Royal” title, which was awarded to them by Princess Margriet in honour of their 100th anniversary in 1992. Gazelle produce stunning, quality bicycles that are as light and comfortable possible. Their mission is to make cycling fun and easy for everyone. That’s why they keep pushing the boundaries on smart Dutch design and technical innovations.
