Belt Drive Electric Bikes
Curious about belt drive electric bikes? This drive system is increasingly popular in North America and offers some great benefits including smooth shifting, low maintenance, and excellent durability. Discover the Gazelle electric bikes with belt drives and learn more about this system below!
Belts With Benefits
Electric bikes with belt drives offer a wide range of benefits, from being delightfully low maintenance to extremely quiet to ride. Shifting is smooth and near-silent, and as belts don't rust or require lubrication, cleanliness is not a concern. Another benefit of belt drives is their longevity--a belt will typically last longer than a chain. If you're looking for an electric bike that is easy to maintain, consider one with a belt drive.
Best In Class
Quality, heritage, and innovation are at the core of the Gazelle brand, so naturally, we chose the highest quality belt drive on the market from a 100+ year-old company to spec on our electric bikes, the Gates Carbon Drive. A weather-resistant polyurethane exterior protects a network of strong, stretch-free carbon fiber tensile cords, to create a durable and dependable drive to power every shift. Experience equals excellence!
Meet the Belt Bikes
We have several belt drive ebikes in our fleet, the Gazelle Ultimate C8, Ultimate C380, and Ultimate C380+. All bikes feature the Gates Carbon Drive paired with an internal hub shifter. The Ultimate C8 is specced with a Shimano Nexus 8-speed hub, while the Ultimate C380s have the Enviolo CVT trekking hub with a 380% ratio range. The combination of the belt drive with the internal hub makes for exceptionally smooth and quiet shifting.
