We tend to think of the Esprit as a lightweight and simplified version of the magnificent Orange series. It has the same top-level build-quality that you’d expect, but slimmer tyres and a more spritely frame give it a nippier ride.
Like all of our Dutch bikes, the Esprit has a fully-enclosed chaincase, hub gears, and comes complete with mudguards, rack, and ring lock. The Shimano hub dynamo powers the bike’s halogen front light, while batteries power the integrated rear light. Through the extensive use of stainless steel hardware, this bike can happily live outdoors. Clever features like Shimano’s IM45 rollerbrakes mean that is also well-adapted for year-round use.
The Esprit is a fantastic run-around; low-maintenance and easy to ride, it isn’t afraid of shopping trips or longer rides out in the countryside. It meets all of the essential criteria for a proper Dutch bike, and does so with a smooth-running style and elegance that is unique to Gazelle.
