£3099.99 including platinum battery
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 whilst still delivering good range with a 500wh battery, it will pull you effortlessly up the steepest of inclines.
This is the 8 speed Nexus hub gear Gates Belt Drive version. A carbon fibre belt replaces the traditional steel chain and claims to last twice as long with no maintenance necessary. The ultimate "no oil, no muck no fuss". 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.

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.
