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!
The Gazelle range of Lifestyle and Urban Bikes encompasses any bike that meets the typical Dutch requirement of providing effective transport, while at the same time, looking and feeling great.
All of the bikes in this broad category feature simple, low maintenance gears and brakes, with built-in lighting, security and load-carrying.
City bikes are the most practical and functional of these, providing strong, dependable transport solutions in a no-nonsense way. Lifestyle bikes achieve a similar feat while making a pretty strong style statement. Some use avant-garde mechanical design, some use of strong colour and graphics and some recall and develop classic retro styling.
Most day-to-day needs, for family, work or leisure, are met easily by one of the Gazelle bikes in this range.
