Cycling must not be an effort, on the contrary, it should energise you. Your bike should make you feel like cycling again every day so you can enjoy the open air, the countryside and the exercise. You will cycle smartly past the city traffic queues and will not need to worry about finding a place to park. Just feeling the wind in your hair, or clearing your head after a day’s work: it means getting back home relaxed.
To accomplish that feeling, a bike is only worthy of the Gazelle name if it has the perfect threefold combination of a delightfully smooth ride, smart design and robust quality. Because at Gazelle we believe: the better your bike is, the more often you will cycle! Ever since 1892 we have been doing everything in our power to make the finest quality bikes that provide the smoothest and most comfortable ride possible. This is how Gazelle makes you ‘feel like cycling’ every day.
Royal Dutch Gazelle employs around 350 employees at its factory in Dieren producing more than 250.000 bicycles a year. Gazelle is market leader in the Netherlands and also works hard at growing the organisation outside the country. Ever since our company was incorporated in 1892 quality has always come first. In 1996, the Gazelle quality system was certified in accordance with ISO-9001 norms. Gazelle is the only Dutch bicycle manufacturer with this certification.
We are proud of our Royal title which was awarded to us by Princess Margriet on the occasion of our centenary celebrations in 1992. An honour which further serves to cement our moral duty to continue to innovate. To remain at the forefront with smart inventions to make cycling more enjoyable or easier.
You see, at Gazelle, we believe: the better your bike is, the more often you will cycle! Ever since 1892 we have been doing everything in our power to make the finest quality bikes that provide the smoothest and most comfortable ride possible. This is how Gazelle makes you 'Feel like cycling' every day.
You will 'feel like cycling' more often if your bike offers the perfect combination of smooth cycling, clever design and robust quality. As far as we are concerned a bike is only worthy of the Gazelle name if it meets these three criteria.
Smooth cycling - Ease and comfort
Regardless of whether you want to cycle quickly through town or are about to undertake a long touring ride, smooth cycling will make your ride a lot more comfortable. That is why we make our models lighter each time around by using lightweight components, while maintaining our quality standards and solidity of course. Indeed our electric bikes are actually 10% lighter than comparable quality bikes! If you would like to enjoy smooth cycling optimally, then choose our special Lite Line models.
Smart design - Striking and ingenious
Choosing a bike is personal. That is why Gazelle has a wide range of models, price brackets and colours. One of them is sure to have your name on it! Gazelle is constantly working on further refining the design and styling of its bikes. An example is the smart integration of cables and lighting into the bike, making them less vulnerable and, what’s more, it looks particularly stylish. A lot of our electric, city and leisure bikes are equipped with these components.
Robust quality - Durable and safe
If you purchase a new bike, you do not want to have any worries about it. At Gazelle we understand how you feel. That is why you will get no less than 10 years’ warranty on all frames and non-suspension front forks. We provide a 5-year warranty on suspension front forks and 2 years on all other components. The paint on a Gazelle is indestructible, as well as being rock-hard and scratch-resistant in every colour. This durability pays for itself in lower maintenance costs and a good trade-in value, whilst you enjoy maximum cycling pleasure on a Gazelle quality bike.
