Key features

Gazelle Vento C7

The Vento C7 is a fantastic mid-range city bike from Gazelle. Given that it has all the bells and whistles, it manages to keep its weight down. The 2019 suspension fork on the front end is surprisingly refined for a city bike, and adds a great deal to the comfort of the ride. Seatpost suspension, a comfy Selle Royal saddle, and a highly-adjustable stem also add to the Vento’s comfort level.

1144Our take on the Gazelle Vento C7 step-over

The Gazelle Vento C7 is a wonderful all-rounder. It has the comfort and adjustability of the comfort range. It has the sportiness of the sportier bikes. And it has the low-maintenance, no nonsense reliability of the simple city bikes.

It’s hard to over-emphasise how plush the new 2019 front suspension fork really is. For a mid-range city bike, it feels like a really luxury component, especially considering that it is the same fork that they use on the high-end e-bikes. Combined with the seatpost suspension, the adjustable stem, and the ergonomic hand grips, the Vento punches above its weight in terms of comfort.

With relatively narrow tyres and a good gear range, the Vento C7 is no slouch when it comes to speed. It’s a decent commuter bike, and it doesn’t drag its heels when accelerating away from the lights. Smooth-shifting from the reliable Nexus hub gears ensure that it never skips a beat.

We were surprised by how much we like the Vento, and it fills the gap between the Esprit and the Orange almost perfectly. It’s definitely a quality option for the discerning bike rider.
