Royal Dutch Gazelle is the largest, oldest and most well known bicycle brand in the cycle-crazy country of The Netherlands. Our interest in Gazelle stems from our belief that a bicycle should be used as an alternative to the car for many trips. We also believe that if you are considering using a bicycle for commutes, it makes sense to buy a quality bike that is reliable, comfortable and safe.
Gazelle has been making the highest quality bicycles for the most critical cyclists for over 120 years in their factory in The Netherlands. This has led not only to a long list of national and international awards, but also to an extensive collection of innovative bikes. Gazelle's commitment to ultimate comfort and performance make these bikes particularly suitable to Australian conditions where roads can be less than ideal in quality and safe cycling is a must.
Choosing Gazelle means smooth cycling, smart design and solid quality. Choosing Gazelle means choosing the cycling pleasure of a premium brand.
City cycling shouldn't 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, your local area 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 Gazelle believe: the better your bike is, the more often you will cycle!
Being the No. 1 brand in the World's best cycling country has led Royal Dutch Gazelle to be voted the most trusted bicycle brand in the Readers Digest annual brand survey in Europe. Ever since 1892 Gazelle have been doing everything in their 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.
Gazelle is keen to do its bit towards making the world a better place. Gazelle does this by taking a critical look at our everyday actions and dealings. Cycling itself is an environmentally-friendly activity. After all, it is one of the cleanest modes of transport there is. So, if you ride a Gazelle bike you are actively being “green”.
Gazelle also takes due account of the environment during the production process. For example, Gazelle use water-based paints and make a conscious effort when it comes to the recycling process. Therefore, in partnership with waste disposal firm Van Gansewinkel we have started the ReCycle project in which Gazelle is working towards a 100% recyclable bicycle. Gazelle also uses FSC-certified paper for brochures, packaging and promotional materials.
So, for a better world we always say: Go cycling!
