We had the pleasure of visiting Gazelle in Dieren in the Netherlands for an early preview of their 2020 bikes. We reviewed the Ultimate t10 which is a totally new low step bike for Gazelle. It's a sporty bike with the comfort you would expect on a Gazelle. I really enjoyed this bike and I think it's going to be a very popular bike.

It has a new Gen 3 Bosch Performance Line motor, 500Wh Powertube battery, disc brakes and a Shimano XT derailleur. It's a well spec'd bike with a nice low step approachable frame.

Thanks Chris,
That's a nice looking ebike. I like the comfortable step thru frame and the rear wheel lock.
Did Gazelle provide a weight of the bike?

Looks like a really nice ride, but I am disappointed that Gazelle is using the Purion instead of the Intuvia or Kiox.
Fortunately, you can upgrade to the Intuvia and soon the Smartphone hub if you'd like. Gazelle had some trouble with the Intuvia on their older models due to the shape of their bars so I think they are trying to avoid that again. It also keeps the price down a bit more.

Excellent review . Looks like this model will be your shops number one best seller for 2020 .
I do think this bike will be pretty popular. It's a really nice bike.

Chris, how is that front fork "monoshock"? Can you feel it smoothing out bumps? Doesn't look like it has much travel, but I don't think much is needed for city riding.

I think it performs well. Probably not great for off-roading or really rough roads, but it smooths out most bumps really well. It's a bit beefier than their previous version.

I just got this bike; previous ride Arroyo is now for my wife.
I did find that the factory front shock preload was minimal and the shock was bottoming with just my weight.
Postmoderne manual helped me remove wheel, undo fender bolt under shock, move the fender out of the way. Then a 4mm up through a hole in the bottom; added in 2 trys maybe 5-10 full turns?? Now it has improved my wrist pain that I had from running the bottomed out setting on all the bumps.

Awesome bike and eMTB mode is a superpower; all I have to do is remember to downshift before stopping that I did not need to worry about on the Arroyo.
