Electric Bike Review
2022 Gazelle Ultimate C380+ HMB Review

Sep 2021

Price: $4749.00 | Model Year: 2022 | A feature complete city-oriented electric bike with premium Enviolo CVT drivetrain, Gates Carbon belt, and Bosch Speed drive system. Powerful hydraulic disc brakes with quad piston calipers ensure smooth solid stops. Available in approachable mid-step or high-step frame style. The high-step frame can be upgraded with a second 500Wh battery pack!

Observations
  • A feature complete city-oriented electric bike with premium Enviolo CVT drivetrain, Gates Carbon belt, and Bosch Speed drive system. Powerful hydraulic disc brakes with quad piston calipers ensure smooth solid stops. Available in approachable mid-step or high-step frame style. The high-step frame can be upgraded with a second 500Wh battery pack!

  • Top mounting Bosch PowerTube 500 battery is easy to use and looks great, it shares the same key as the AXA frame lock. The adjustable angle stem, upgraded suspension fork (with lockout, preload, and rebound adjust), ergonomic grips, and shorter wheelbase provide great aerodynamic or comfort options, including upright Dutch style.

  • Three frame sizes improve fit. Premium alloy fenders, chain cover, rear rack, reflective tires, and integrated lights add utility and safety. The headlight has side cutouts and is mounted up high for improved visibility, it points where you steer and isn't blocked by the fender as some competing designs are. The rear light has four LEDs for added brightness.

  • The continuously variable transmission hub adds ~4lbs of additional weight compared to a traditional derailleur and cassette. The 500 watt hour battery is decent, and they do include a four amp fast charger, but the key is required to re-insert the battery pack and that same key cannot be removed from the frame lock without first locking. The Purion display offers limited menus, does not include USB charging, is not removable, and is not compatible with Bosch ebike apps. Only one color, only available in America, price is fairly high.
