If cycling in comfort is what matters to you - taking the strain off your lower back and being in a natural seated position - then Gazelle have you covered. The 125 year old Dutch bike giant has the market cornered on comfortable 'everyday' bikes. The Dutch cycle more than any other nation and have little tolerance for anything that is not comfortable enough to cycle everyday. The Orange product line is their comfort range of e-bikes and have been a big hit with our customers.
Ready to Ride
There is absolutely nothing we'd add to this to make this better except perhaps a set of panniers for carrying your bits and pieces. We really like the comfort features such as the suspension units in the headstem and seatpost - little luxuries that make the ride experience so much more enjoyable. The lights are neatly positioned so there are few 'sticky out bits'. The level of 'finish' on Gazelle bikes is second to none.
If the Dutch know about bicycles, then the Germans know about motors. The Bosch Active Line Plus motor is a smooth motor that balances high mileage with hill climbing. With a bike like this which you are likely to use as a shopping bike, you will not want to go for a motor that does not have at least this level of torque (50nm). Fully equipped bikes with a stepthrough frame are by their nature heavy so make sure you have a motor that can cope. The Active Line Plus motor ticks that box.
Summary: For riders who seek comfort, utility and reliability. Go Dutch, go Gazelle.
As with all our e-bikes, you can give them a test-ride, so get in touch to arrange one at your nearest branch.

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.
