Our take on the Gazelle Orange C8 HMS

How comfortably and easily do you want to cycle? We struggle to think of a model that is more comfortable or simple to operate than the Gazelle Orange C8 HMS. That’s why this popular e-bike has been brought up to date with the latest technology: the 2019 frame with the most powerful Shimano Steps mid-mounted motor, complemented by Shimano’s Di2 electronic shifting. You can choose whether to operate the 8-speed gears automatically or manually, and every shift is always quick and precise.

For 2019, Gazelle have taken the best electric motor from Shimano and paired it up with their world-famous Orange. The result is a comfortable and reliable electric bike, assisted by one of the quietest and most efficient e-bike motors on the market. High-volume puncture-resistant Schwalbe tyres smooth out the road, and any bigger bumps are handled by the discreet suspension units. Building the battery into the rear rack keeps it protected, and if you use panniers then it almost disappears completely! The automatic shifting is quite spectacular, and it seems to be far more reliable and precise than cable-operated shifting mechanisms. Shimano have been developing their Di2 technology for many years now, and we’re pleased to say that the results speak for themselves. The new Shimano display also makes improvements on previous years’ models; it is now smaller, sleeker, and can be locked on to the mount so you don’t have to worry about it being stolen.

The Gazelle Orange C8 HMS promises a lot on paper, and it really delivers in reality. It is as smooth and quiet as it is strong and sophisticated. It is easy to use, low-maintenance, and pretty discrete for such a modern a electric bike. We were certainly impressed by the innovations that it has on board, and we’re sure that you will be too!
