​2021 Gazelle Electric Bike Model Line-Up

​2021 Gazelle Electric Bike Model Line-Up

Gazelle focuses on continuously improving their bikes, from providing selection with varying price points to introducing revolutionary components. This year, Gazelle has added a secondary battery option and introduced several new and updated electric bike models.

Let's go through what's unique to the 2021 Gazelle line this year...

Dual Battery Compatibility

New for 2021 is the availability to add the Bosch PowerPack for the following models: 

The Bosch PowerPack 500Wh combines with the included Bosch PowerTube 500Wh battery to give the bikes an impressive 1000Wh capacity. This significantly increases the bike’s range, making it perfect for commuters and long-distance riders.

Those interested in the Bosch PowerPack 500Wh will need to order it separately, as they need to be ordered to the store from Gazelle’s warehouse. They also need to be mounted by an authorized Gazelle dealer.

When in use, the bike draws power from both batteries. When being stored, the batteries charge at nearly the same rate.

Two New Ultimate Models

2021 debuts two new bike models: Ultimate C8 and Ultimate C380.

Ultimate C8

The Gazelle Ultimate C8 is as slick-looking at the Ultimate T10 with upgraded features. In Gazelle's words, the C8 is a "a feast for the eyes and a delight for the body." We couldn't agree more!

What we love:

  • The Gates belt drive provides smooth, quiet riding with little maintenance
  • Shimano BR-MT200 hydraulic disc brakes provides efficient and powerful braking
  • Low-step frame for comfortable, upright riding
  • Integrated battery provides stability and frame rigidity

Included with the Ultimate C8 is a suspension seatpost and fork, fenders, rear carrier, front and rear lights, and the improved AXA Defender lock.

Riders are able to choose between  Sienna Light Matte and Petrol Matte frame color options. The Bosch PowerPack 500Wh option can be mounted for an additional charge.

Ultimate C380

Similar-looking to the Ultimate C8, the Gazelle Ultimate C380 is an electric bike that focuses on versatility. The model is available in  Mallard Blue and Light Olive Matte.

Looking for speed? Gazelle introduced the C380’s sibling, the C380+. The C380+ is a Class 3 bike, with a 28mph top speed.

What’s unique to the C380 and C380+ is the Enviolo 380 trekking internal gear hub. Shifting is stepless and effortless, making gears adjustable while riding and stationary. Maintenance is virtually non-existent thanks to the elimination fo the derailleur and internal hub.

Just like it's counterpart, the Ultimate C8, the C380 features the Gates Belt Drive.

What we love:

  • Bosch Performance Line motor with 65Nm of torque provides powerful assistance
  • Shimano BR-MT420 hydraulic disc brakes offer responsive braking
  • Combination of touring and sporty models creates a comfortable, performance-oriented bike

The Gazelle Ultimate C380 includes fenders, front and seatpost suspension, front light, rear carrier, and the AXA Defender lock.
