This bike comes with all the Gazelle goodies, including an integrated AXA lock, built-in bell, rear rack with adjustable straps, head and tail lighting and fenders to protect you (and your clothing!) from the wetter elements.

The Gazelle Easyflow is the ideal eBike for riders of smaller stature or people new to riding, with a few key, extra rider-friendly features. At 26 inches, the Gazelle Easyflow’s wheels are 2 inches shorter than the standard wheel, meaning you’ll be closer to the ground.

The bike is extremely maneuverable, allowing you to navigate turns with ease, and the high performance Magura hydraulic brakes offer strong yet smooth stopping power. An adjustable stem and handlebars enable a fit customized to every rider’s preference. The bike positioning offers a relaxed upright posture, giving you exceptional visibility on the road, and in turn, making it easy for drivers and other riders to see you.

Gazelle NL

Gazelle NL

Got a heavy load? Say hello to the Gazelle NL, the sole cargo eBike in our fleet. Featuring a robust steel front rack, a formidable double pronged kickstand, and smartly distributed weight across its modern-styled frame, the Gazelle NL is the minimalist cargo electric bike. Offering generous capacity without the weight, bulk or length of other cargo bikes, the Gazelle NL can fit anywhere a standard bike will, with room to spare. The bike’s relative light weight also allows for a range uncommon for cargo bikes; the Gazelle NL can go up to 20 miles in turbo mode, perfect for pedaling a heavy load. The double-sided kickstand comes in handy when loading and unloading the bike, creating an added element of stability. A low step frame offers two key advantages: mounting and dismounting a fully-loaded bike is much easier, and the frame also contributes to a low center of gravity, creating more stability and control. The Gazelle NL is equipped with a Bosch 500 Wh battery and Bosch’s powerful Performance Line motor, with pedal-assistance up to 20mph. With a comfortable upright posture, this bike allows you to see where you’re going and quickly anticipate any obstacles or hazards that can be more tricky to handle when loaded up with cargo. If you are looking to haul, but travel at a pace more hare than tortoise, the Gazelle NL is your trusty and sturdy steed.
