Gazelle announced the all-new Ultimate T10 HMB, a hybrid e-bike with integrated Bosch motor and battery system. Using a low-step frame, suspension fork, and Shimano XT groupset, it aims at a spirited ride quality for your commute or ride around town.
Gazelle Ultimate T10 HMB hybrid commuter e-bike
Gazelle may not be the most well-known name among racing-types, but the Dutch company makes a wide spread of useful and utilitarian commuter bikes. The new Ultimate T10 HMB has an aluminum frame and fork, along with a clever suspension design and hidden downtube battery. Complete bike weight is quoted at 50.7 pounds, putting it in the thick of the commuter e-bike market.
The new bike is equipped with the Bosch Performance Line Cruise motor and Powertube 500 Wh battery, providing up-to-90 miles of assistance in the lowest power setting. There are four power settings total, and cranking it all the way up reduces approximate range to 35 miles.
The aluminum fork has an integrated suspension system that looks awfully similar to the Cannondale Head Shok. Details are slim as of now, with suspension travel, adjustability, and service requirements yet to be announced.
Shimano hydraulic disc brakes handle stopping duties…
…while an XT drivetrain handles shifting duties out back.
Extras are included from the factory, such as a rear rack, Ergon grips, and integrated headlight system.
Gazelle does not provide a detailed geometry chart, but offers three frame sizes: 46, 53, and 57cm. They suggest consulting this page for determining your ideal bike size.
Gazelle will begin delivering complete bikes to retail stores in November 2019. MSRP is quoted at $3,799. Frames are covered by a 10-year warranty, while a 5-year warranty covers suspension forks and paintwork.
