The Orange CX HMB is a unique pedal assist bike and probably the most sophisticated in our range. Equipped with the Harmony N380 continuously variable transmission gear hub, offering gear change as simple as a volume control, either manually or automatically. No more clunking between indexed gears, just smooth transitions between ratios with the feather-light twist shift. In manual mode, your gearing is controlled directly by your adjustments of the shift control. If you're in automatic mode, your shift control sets the cadence (pedalling rate) that you find comfortable and the system will automatically adjust the gear you need to maintain that cadence whatever your speed. It really is stunning to use!
The transmission integrates with the powerful Bosch motor system mounted between the pedals, fed by the sleek lithium polymer battery mounted on the rear rack; quiet and powerful and efficient. One of the beautiful features of the NuVinci Harmony in automatic mode is that by maintaining a constant pedalling cadence, you will enhance the efficiency of the system by eking out the maximum range from your battery. We suspect that this capability alone probably delivers a few miles additional range every battery charge.
As you'd expect from a bike with such a high-end position in the Gazelle line-up, there are plenty of luxurious and high spec components to accompany the power train; super-powerful Magura HS11 hydraulic brakes,high spec Busch and Muller front light, minimalist suspension forks and, of course, the usual Dutch bike components.
The Orange CX HMB has everything you could wish for in a comfort pedal-assist bike. It will suit anyone looking for pedal-assistance, but especially if you need assistance in absolutely any kind of terrain, if you would rather enjoy the ride without having to think about changing gears and if you want to be able to cruise in sheer, unadulterated luxury.
