Despite its beefy construction, this multi-functional cargo bike pedals and steers with ease. This is mainly thanks to its wide tyres, as well as good ergonomics in the frame design. The extra wide bi-pod kickstand, steering lock, hub dynamo, and front + rear racks make the HeavyDutyNL the best-equipped cargo bike in the Gazelle range.

Our take on the Gazelle HeavyDutyNL step-over

Heavy Duty by name…

The Heavy-Duty is Gazelle’s cargo bike. It is unashamedly large, unpretentiously styled, and clearly built for a tough life. The frame is made from aluminium, and in order to give the strength and rigidity of a cargo bike, the tubes are oversized and quite chunky looking. Fat tyres absorb bumps, and the huge Selle Royal saddle makes sure that you are scarcely even aware of them – it’s actually quite pleasant to ride! For 2019, the frame has been improved and the seat tube angle is more relaxed, offering a more efficient riding position.

Designed for cargo

In addition to its front and rear racks, the Gazelle Heavy Duty includes three key adaptations that make it a formidable cargo bike; these include, the strong and sturdy bi-pod kickstand, the wide handlebars (for control), and the steering lock (which prevents the bike from tipping while it’s being loaded).

Trusty family bike

Interestingly, the adaptations that make the Gazelle Heavy Duty a good cargo bike also make it a very competent family bike as well. The bike’s designers obviously knew that this would be the case, as they thoughtfully included a Yepp Easy-Fit adaptor for a Yepp Maxi childseat in the rear carrier. Moreover, the super wide kickstand keeps the bike stable when the kids are on board, and the front rack provides a useful cargo bay when the rear rack is occupied – brilliant!

All in all, the Gazelle Heavy Duty is a formidable cargo bike, family bike, or ‘ready for anything’ city bike; as adept at carrying kids and shopping as it is at casual cruising and carrying crates of beer. Needless to say, it’s a great Dutch bike, and we love it.
