The Gazelle Chamonix S8 is a bike related to, and building on the success of, the Cityzen C8. Where the Cityzen takes a sporting stance using a combination of minimalism and modern tech, the Chamonix S8 builds on these ingredients to deliver no less a bike with a slightly less aggressive posture. The upright riding position from the adjustable quill stem, the integrated lights and frame lock all nod to the Gazelle tradition of low maintenance city bikes. However the Gates belt-drive powering the Shimano Nexus 8 speed hub gear looks purposefully to the future, offering light weight, reliability and clean and quiet operation without the need for lubrication.
The result is the Chamonix S8 with its light weight, and balanced blend of high technology and traditional city bike features to entice a wider and younger audience towards transport enlightenment. Smart and very fit for purpose, we love it!

Axa frame locks
All Gazelles have a frame lock fitted at the rear of the bike, which immobilises the rear wheel at the flick of a lever. This means that an opportunist thief will have to carry your pride and joy away. If you use it in conjunction with a good D-lock, you have great security.
The lock always comes with 2 keys - if you lose them or damage them, all is not lost. We have outlined all you need to know here.
