About the Gazelle Ultimate C5 HMB
Peace of mind, Peace and Quiet
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 performance matter to you, the Ultimate C5 is worth the price tag.
