Once you mount this bike, you'll feel very regal indeed. It gives you a nice, upright position that's perfect for enjoying the scenery. For many of our customers who are used to traditional, hybrid style, non-electric bikes, this is quite the change, but a welcome one. It's also nice if you're protecting a sensitive back and shoulders. The short distance between seat and handlebar, plus the swept back handlebar shape is what makes this possible, and what makes this a bike you'll be tempted to ride as often as possible.
The motor that Gazelle have put in the Grenoble C8 is the Bosch Active Line Plus motor which is calibrated for high mileage, which you'll certainly get with the 500wh which is neatly slotted into the downtube. Mileage is really hard to predict - there are just so many factors that affect it - but so long as you keep your tyre pressure up, and stay in an efficient gear (not a 'grinding' gear), you will be travelling a long way before you need to look for a plug socket.
Even more comfort
We really like it when there are little features that lift the bike above the ordinary. The Grenoble has suspension integrated into the seatpost and the front headset. You may never have owned a bike with two sets of suspension but it is brilliant. Rather than large suspension forks, Gazelle use more subtle suspension units that fit seamlessly in with the overall design. The effect is a comfortable ride without adding bulk. As we've already mentioned, you will want to ride this as often as possible!
Summary: For the rider who is ready for comfort. The Grenoble C8 HMB possesses all the good cycling design sense that has made Gazelle so popular for 128 years.
As with all our e-bikes, this is available to test-ride. Contact your nearest showroom to reserve your slot.

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.
