Gazelle Electric Bike Mid-Mounted Motors
No challenge is too great for a Gazelle electric bike with a mid-mounted motor. Climb a hill with ease, arrive fresh and relaxed at work, or cycle smoothly along meandering paths. The low positioning of the motor on the bike gives your eBike a stable feeling and a responsive ride quality.
How does a motor for an electric bike work?
The motor of an electric bike works by means of pedal assistance. This means that you still have to pedal yourself, but the motor gives extra power to the wheel. Just as if you have a constant tailwind! The motor also helps to start up easily from standstill. So you pull away from the traffic light in no time.
Every ebike has different settings, from eco to sporty. These determine how much power the motor gives. Please note: the more power, the faster the battery is empty. So always choose a setting that suits the distance you want to cover.
What types of ebike motors are there?
The motor of an electric bike can be located in the front wheel, rear wheel or in the middle of the ebike. The location of the motor is an important factor in the handling of the bike. Our electric bikes are equipped with the best and most reliable mid-motors. We have listed our ebike motors for you:
