If you are looking for an electric bike to help you enjoy the tranquillity of nature you can't do much better than this. Rather than a chain, this bike has a carbon belt which means the whole power system is incredibly quiet. You'll barely make a sound as you glide through your chosen green spaces.
It's very reliable too. Belt drives need no maintenance and along with the low-maintenance Shimano hub gears, this is a bike that offers peace of mind for anyone nervous of the technical side of biking.
What we like about the Ultimate range from Gazelle is that they are fitted with Bosch Performance motors. These were originally created to be fitted into electric mountain bikes but when they're fitted into a bike like this, it means riding uphill with full pannier bags is a pleasure. Don't be afraid to pack extra when you have a motor like this.
Gazelle's are extremely well made. It's hard to tell just from photographs, but when you see them in the showroom - and eventually come to test-ride one - you understand that serious care has gone into its manufacturing. The clean lines, the robustness of the components and over-riding smoothness of the ride actually make the rider feel somewhat regal.
Summary: The Ultimate range by Gazelle has been a favourite at Energise E-bikes for the past few seasons. If quality, comfort and performancematter to you, the Ultimate C5 is worth the price tag.
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.
Ditch the car. The school run just got fun. The Raleigh Stride 2 will not disappoint when it comes to transporting children. A large front carrier is powered along by a Bosch Performance CX cargo line motor (and your legs of course), which has been specially developed for cargo biking.
The SL range is 40% lighter than the average electric bike
Could be the most stylish commuter/urban electric bike we've ever sold. There's no other e-bike out there with ride quality, range, and power like this, at a weight that's light enough to carry. The Turbo Vado SL 5.0 EQ is best for your daily commute, quick errands and getting around town. Extra-bright, built-in lights in front and back mean you'll see and be seen. DRYTECH fenders keep water and road spray away, and a standard rear rack is always ready for your bags and panniers. This is your go-to for local transportation.
