Founded in 1892 in the Netherlands, Gazelle has an illustrious history. While it’s headquartered in Dieren, where it makes over 300,000 bikes a year, Gazelle moved into the U.S. market in 2017. Its U.S. operations are based in Santa Cruz, California, where it sells its range of bikes and e-bikes to American and Canadian customers who are after top-quality machines.
Focused exclusively on upright, touring, and road bikes, Gazelle creates everyday bikes that might, like a GM or Ford car, be used for commuting and utility. It created a revolutionary e-bike — the Gazelle Nº 1 — in 2015, and is still using this original concept to improve on its e-bikes today.
The Dutch company backs up its promise of quality with a warranty offer that few bike manufacturers can beat. It also relies on smart Dutch design and technical innovation to help its bikes stand out. One more interesting fact — all of its e-bikes have step-through frames, making them appealing to riders of all shapes and sizes.
Our Review of Gazelle E-Bikes
Modesty can be highly attractive. Gazelle e-bikes aren’t glamorous eMTB or gravel beasts, but more sedate and comfortable electric bikes for everyday use.
Core to the offer is the warranty Gazelle customers are given. This is 10 years for the frame and any fixed fork, five years for a suspension fork, and two years for all other components. This is a promise that your machine will look after you for thousands of miles of riding.
Having traded on its reputation of quality for more than 130 years, Gazelle is one of those bike brands that will last forever. Their e-bikes should last a very long time, too!
