Our take on the Gazelle Orange C7 HMB

It is for good reasons that the Orange C7 HMB is one of Gazelle’s best-selling e-bikes. For starters, it looks and rides very much like a comfortable city bike. Indeed, apart from the fact that is has a motor built into the frame and a battery integrated into the carrier, it is hard to distinguish it from any standard Orange in Gazelle’s city range. The handlebars are adjustable, the frame comes in a variety of sizes, and the build-quality is exceptional. Components are also proportionate to the bike’s requirements, and so the construction is lightweight without being over-built and sluggish. Comfort is absolutely one of the best qualities of the Orange C7 HMB, and it really glides over bumps in the road. The combination of front fork suspension, seatpost suspension, chunky tyres, and a high-quality Selle Royal saddle make this model feel like a truly luxury product. Though the Orange C7 is available with a cross-bar, the low step-through is a popular and civilised feature that is universally practical for mounting the bike.

As with all of our Dutch electric bikes, the Orange C7 is defined by a host of useful features. It has full-length mudguards to protect you from mud and puddles, as well as coatguards to keep your clothes away from the spokes. It has a rear carrier and kickstand as standard, and this makes it easy to carry big panniers full of groceries. The bike has front and rear lights that are wired to the battery, so they are always there when you need them. The gears and chain are enclosed, and so protected from detritus and weather, thus ensuring that the bike needs only minimal maintenance. The riding position is also highly adjustable, and so can be adapted to suit a range of riders and riding styles.

Another outstanding quality of the Orange C7 HMB is how safe it feels to ride. For starters, the Bosch system only kicks in when you pedal, and so there is no chance that the electric assist will take off and get you into trouble. The upright riding position also gives you excellent visibility, which makes a huge difference to your ability to both see and be seen by others. Reflective sidewalls on the tyres provide a large surface area that reflects light at nighttime, and the headlamp and tail light were also designed to give great side visibility. The large tyres also make a profound difference to the bike’s stability, giving tremendous traction in the corners while also allowing you to cruise over potholes without the fear of your tyre getting stuck. We feel that the Orange C7 HMB  is a fantastic mid-range e-bike from Gazelle, and it does a tremendous job of balancing comfort, performance, and style with the all-important factor of price.
