Gazelle CityZen C8 HMB Electric Bike
The Gazelle CityZen C8 HMB is a highly manoeuvrable, sporty electric bike with minimalist design, from the Dutch giant, Royal Dutch Gazelle.
Powered by Bosch’s Active motor, the Gazelle CityZen C8 HMB is designed to combat the urban jungle, and maintain a huge range at the same time. Ideal for commuting, or simple trips into town and back, the CityZen is easy to ride and a huge performer. As you’d expect with all Gazelle’s, the bike is beautifully put together. Cable routing is internal, and the paint finish second to none. The Gazelle CityZen C8 HMB is fully equipped and road-ready. It features strong front lights, full mudguards on the front and rear and a rear carrier for all those bits ‘n’ bobs.
It’s hard to imagine that such a simple yet elegant design can deliver such performance and comfort. Although the forks are fixed, the Gazelle CityZen C8 HMB maintains its posture on less forgiving surfaces too. The centre-mounted Bosch design ensures a lower centre of gravity, resulting in a stable and reliable ride every time. Powered by a 300Wh battery ensures huge range when combined with the Active motor and is ideal for longer rides whether it be in the countryside, in the town or on a canal tow-path.
Opting for an ultra quiet and smooth Nexus 8-speed hub gear the Gazelle CityZen C8 HMB provides quick and effortless shifting, even while stationary. Shimano hydraulic disc brakes provide safe and effective stopping power at all times. The Euro lock pinned on the rear stays allows a quick and useful way of immobilising the bike, and provides an effective deterrent from theft.
The simple yet efficient design of the Gazelle CityZen C8 HMB means this urban prowler is very hard to beat and comes in at a very affordable price.
