The Gazelle Ultimate C8+ Belt drive is a beautifully realised electric powerhouse. It starts with the frame – and look no further than the low step-thru monocoque version with its flowing lines, yet chunky appearance. With its internal battery well hidden, we feel that it strikes the perfect balance between purposeful and sporty.
The riding postion is just so – upright enough, but not the proverbial ‘sit up and beg’ and paired with fat tyres and integrated suspension makes for the smoothest of rides – red carpet on the road and confidence inspiring should you venture off.
Equipped with the new Bosch Active Line Plus motor offering 50Nm of torque with a 500wh battery, it will pull you effortlessly up the steepest of inclines and achieve a maximum distance of around 145 km.
This is the 8 speed Nexus hub gear Gates Belt Drive version. A carbon fibre belt replaces the traditional steel chain so no oily leg marks !!. The enclosed transmission and neat hydraulic rim brakes makes this arguably the smartest and sleekest in the range. Cut a dash with this immaculately finished beauty.
