Discover the Esprit Belt

With their strong and rigid frames, all Gazelle Esprit bikes are built to last. The Esprit Belt, however, offers even better longevity thanks to its drive system with a durable belt (instead of a chain) and its hydraulic disc brakes. These are more powerful and more durable than roller brakes, making them the brakes of the future.

No chain, but a durable belt

No chain, but a durable belt

A belt drive has many advantages over the classic chain drive. First of all, a belt requires minimal maintenance: it doesn't need to be lubricated or greased. Furthermore, a belt drive is noiseless, allowing you to enjoy a wonderfully silent ride. A belt is also lighter than a chain, but what's even more appealing is that it lasts three to five times longer.

Powerful and controlled braking

Powerful and controlled braking

When it comes to optimum control, hydraulic disc brakes are a must. They offer the braking power and precision to slow down safely at any time. The Esprit Belt has high-performance Shimano disc brakes with easy-to-use, extended brake levers. Combined with the grippy Continental tyres, they ensure that you feel confidently in control in all conditions.

Always safely lit

Always safely lit

A modern city bike will of course have powerful LED lights at the front and rear. These lights are energy efficient and eliminate the need to replace batteries, as they are powered by the hub dynamo in the front wheel. They automatically light up when you cycle, providing an extra level of safety. After all, research has shown that daytime running lights make you more likely to be noticed by other road users.

Striking addition

Although the Esprit Belt has a sturdy luggage carrier on the back, we understand that you will sometimes want to carry extra items or that you might want to keep an eye on your valuables. In that case, our optional front carrier is what you need. It's easy to mount, looks striking and is perfect for carrying a backpack, briefcase or handbag.
