About the Gazelle Orange C8 HMB

It fits! It fits!

Finding the right bike for you can become a game of Cinderella's Slipper and we know many people struggle to find a bike that's small enough if you're short in stature. We've specifically stocked this model in a lowstep, 42cm frame with 26" wheels to accomodate compact riders, though this would also benefit those who want to feel closer to the ground for reassurance. 

The great thing about the Dutch-designed, stepthrough frame is that even though it is a smaller bike, it is still comfortable and not cramped. The upright position for riding takes away any strain from your back and wrists, and lets you enjoy the scenery far more easily than other bike styles.

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, the comfort grips and Selle Royal saddle - little luxuries that make the ride experience so much more enjoyable. The lights are neatly positioned so there are few 'sticky out bits'. We just love the level of 'finish' on Gazelle bikes. It's is second to none.

Bosch Powered

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 stepthrough bikes can be heavy by nature so we make sure to stock them only with motors 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, this is available to test-ride. Contact your nearest showroom to reserve your slot.
