Gazelle Cityzen T10
Gazelle Cityzen T10
The Cityzen is our most popular model for active cyclists - it is designed to have a fast and responsive ride - with precise handling sporty geometry, while still providing plenty of power for hills. The T10 is the successor to the popular Cityzen C8 internally geared version.
- Dynamic wide range gears - Premium Shimano 1x10 drivetrain for more torque and sporty performance
- Best in Class Bosch Performance Drive 20mph 63Nm torque.
- Commute ready - full dress - powerful front and rear lights, fenders, chainguard, an integrated frame lock, bell, and a rear rack for panniers.
- Solid Braking - Shimano hydraulic disc with 160 mm rotors
- Good Range 22-59 mile, 482 watt hour battery
- Available sizes 46cm, 49cm, 53cm mid step frames.
The Cityzen is a popular choice for active cyclists because it emphasizes the efficient performance of a regular bike - due to the narrower tires, a rigid fork and light, stiff wheels - and a design that is clean and "Zen". Updated from the C8 internal gear version, the T10 feels closer to a regular road bike with crisp shifts and more torque, taking full advantage of Bosch's Performance 63nm, where the C8 is limited to 50nm.
The classic Dutch bike is very upright which makes them outstanding for comfort, but that can be a slog at speed and on longer rides. Narrower tires roll considerably faster than comfort/cruiser style fat tires. If you are looking for more of an exercise experience while still enjoying the benefits of eBikes - like help on the hills or for endurance on a long ride - the Cityzen is a solid choice.
The Performance line is Bosch's most powerful street motor is tuned for a dynamic sportier ride, vs the active line's daily rider & leisure emphasis, and is the motor system to have on a premium sporty eBike. Pushing 63 Nm and available in a 20mph and 28mph versions. We just don't see any problems with the Bosch setups, so peace of mind is included.
Daily commuting on an eBike will put you ahead of the pack every time, but it pays to be prepared. Fenders keep the spray off your face, back and feet. A rear carrier allows you to use bags. Lights that are integrated with your eBikes battery. A chainguard keeps your chain & trousers clean. Integrated frame locks for quickie stops. And a nice bell to politely tell people to get out of your way!
The norm for most bikes, with great ratio range, lots of low speed torque as well as top end gears for high speeds, and easy access to service and change flats. For eBikes shifting over the entire range when the bike is at rest can be a problem, a challenge less active cyclists face at first. They can get your trousers dirty if you aren't careful. Good quality gears can last with frequent maintenance, but will wear out faster than internal gears and belt drives.
