Gazelle

Comfortable Everday E-bikes

 

Royal Dutch Gazelle has been making comfortable transportation bicycles since 1892. Their bikes have an excellent ride quality that is stable, graceful, and unhurried.  For the model year 2020, we are stocking three e-bikes in the Gazelle lineup. 

Medeo T9 Low-Step   $2500

This is a quality e-bike that is good looking, quiet, and simple to operate. The upright riding position is comfortable, and the low step-thru frame makes it easy to mount and dismount. We find that the Bosch Active Line Plus drive unit is powerful enough for most customers. Folks that need to regularly load the bike with heavy bags or a child-seat should consider upgrading to the Medeo T10 with the Bosch Performance Line, which offers additional climbing power. 

  • Drive Unit: Bosch Active Line Plus (50Nm max output torque)
  • Battery: Bosch Powerpack 400Wh rack mount
  • Display: Bosch Purion
  • Brakes: Shimano MT200 Hydraulic Disc
  • Drivetrain: Shimano Acera 9sp w/11-36t cassette
  • sizes: 45cm, 50cm, 55cm
  • colors: champion red, iced blue
  • rear carrier: 25kg capacity w/MIK

 

 

Medeo T10 Mid-Step   $3000

Compared to the Medeo T9, this bike has a more powerful drive unit, a larger capacity battery that is recessed into the frame,  and a wider range of gears. Gazelle calls this a "mid-step" frame, and the stand-over height is considerably higher than the T9. Yes, we also wish that they'd made a low-step version of this bike! But, for those of us that can swing our leg over a mid-step bar, this is a wonderful bike that is powerful, quiet, and fun to ride.

  • Drive Unit: Bosch Performance Line (65Nm max output torque)
  • Battery: Bosch Powertube 500Wh
  • Display: Bosch Purion
  • Brakes: Shimano MT200 Hydraulic Disc
  • Drivetrain: Shimano Deore 10sp w/11-42t cassette 
  • sizes: 45cm, 50cm, 55cm
  • colors: ivory, jeans
  • rear carrier: 25kg capacity w/MIK

 

Ultimate T10+   $4000

The Ulimate T10+ is a Class 3 e-bike, meaning it is capable of assistance up to 28mph. With high-speed e-bikes like this, it is of paramount importance that the frame is well-made and that the components are durable and safe. Cheap frames and components will catastrophically fail when put to the test of daily Class 3 riding! Gazelle has impressed us with this bike and its price point. This is a fun, safe, and speedy bike for $4k. 

  • Drive Unit: Bosch Performance Line Speed (85Nm max output torque)
  • Battery: Bosch Powertube 500Wh (upgradable to 1000Wh Dualbattery)
  • Display: Bosch Purion
  • Brakes: Shimano MT420 Hydraulic Disc
  • Drivetrain: Shimano Deore XT 10sp w/11-36t cassette
  • sizes: 46cm, 53cm, 57cm
