9 Reasons why Gazelle is the right choice
1.Quality and durability
Choosing Gazelle means choosing a reliable bicycle with a long lifespan and a high
recognised ISO9001 certificate.
Gazelle thoroughly tests all components in its advanced testing centre. Just to make
sure that, even under the most extreme of conditions, your Gazelle will offer you the
ride that we think you deserve − light and comfortable.

professional way. They also have what it takes to help you to select the bike that fits
and suits you.

You can enjoy your bicycle most when it is tailored to you. Every human body is
different. Besides frame size, proper adjustment of saddle, handlebar and grips is
extremely important. For comfortable cycling, also on longer trips, you need to be able
to choose between different seating positions. Gazelle offers you the benefit of easy
individual adjustment at all points where the bicycle supports your body.
4. The correct cycling position
The geometry of Gazelle Dutch bicycles is keyed to the intended use. For short rides
to school, work or supermarket, a relaxed upright cycling position is preferable in terms
of comfort. For longer trips, daily commuting or touristic cycling it is more pleasant to
bend forward a little. This position makes you faster and more versatile and keeps you
from catching too much wind. If you’re the athletic type, a road racer or mountain bike
will give you an even more sporty position.

vacuum moulding system assures that our saddles are 100% waterproof and on
average are 10% lighter than standard saddles.
