There is potentially a lack of heritage or history in the current e-bike market, but the name Gazelle (or more correctly the Royal Dutch Gazelle) is steeped in the history of bicycles as a means of urban transportation. Known historically for its original Dutch-style comfort bike, launched in the Netherlands in 1892, the company continues to thrive and push the technology of bicycle transportation forward. Case in point, is the Gazelle Ultimate T10+ HMB, a bike designed as a benchmark in urban mobility with a few nods to an impressive history in the world of cycling. It’s not every day we get a bike in the office with a 128-year history.
The Gazelle Ultimate T10+ HMB is uniquely positioned to power a new generation of commuters and urban cyclists looking to enjoy the transformation of cities and the new normal for all of us. The speed, design, functionality and thoughtfulness that went into the Ultimate T10+ makes it a great choice to replace a car or to minimize car trips that could be done by bike.
It features the newest generation Bosch Performance Line Speed motor with an integrated PowerTube 500Wh battery. The Class-3 Ultimate T10+ features pedal assistance up to 28 mph and comes equipped with Shimano XT components and an SR Suntour Mobie 45 suspension fork (yes, that Suntour) offering up 80mm of travel. The aluminum frame comes in a mid-step or high-step option to suit your needs and in 46-, 53- and 57-centimeter sizes.
The $3,999 Ultimate T10+ HMB boasts a range of 55 miles in Eco mode, 35 miles in Tour mode and 25 miles in Turbo range—in case you need to get to work or the bookshop at speed. An LCD display offers up speed, assist mode, battery life, ride distance, remaining range and an odometer; and it comes equipped with a cool AXA Defender rear wheel café lock.
