SANTA CRUZ, CA – Micromobility can be defined as transportation using lightweight vehicles such as bicycles or scooters, especially electric ones. A report issued by the National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO) stated that in 2019, people took 136 million trips using micromobility (a 60% increase from 2018) and that 35% of all U.S. car trips are under two miles. People around the world have awoken to the very real reality that micromobility modes help us make short trips more easily without relying on personal cars that increase congestion and contribute to climate change.
In short, micromobility, and specifically, electric bicycles are experiencing a renaissance. And, to meet the explosive growth in new ridership, Gazelle Electric Bikes is releasing the new Medeo T9 City, a feature-rich, value-driven electric bike that will introduce riders to the joy of two-wheeled micromobility and broaden the appeal of their already wildly popular Medeo family of electric bikes with a radically accessible price point for this premium brand.
The Medeo T9 City is Gazelle’s active electric bike that takes riders everywhere. Specced with the reliable and quiet Bosch Active Line motor and 9-speed external derailleur, every hill will feel as flat as Gazelle’s native country, The Netherlands. Powerful front and rear lighting plus a sturdy rear rack will inspire riders to swap their car for this bike for both day and nighttime trips and enjoy every mile of the ride thanks to an approachable step-through frame, comfortable geometry, a front suspension fork, and wide, ebike-specific tires. The Medeo T9 City boasts the lightest weight of all the ebikes in Gazelle’s fleet, weighing in at just 47.1 pounds excluding the battery, making it an appealing option for city dwellers who have a flight or two of stairs to contend with.
“Gazelle is all about quality, offering riders the best possible experience” said Ewoud van Leeuwen, General Manager of Gazelle North America. “With the introduction of the Gazelle Medeo T9 City, we are thrilled to offer an excellent bike with premium components at an accessible price point. This opens up the possibility for more first time ebike riders to experience a well-made, dependable bike from a brand they can rely on, and a rich network of trained retailers that can provide service and support.”
With strong spec, great design, and a full complement of utility-driven accessories, the Medeo T9 City is an incredible value and the perfect introduction to ebike life. The bike is offered in two colors: Light Olive or Mallard Blue and available in two sizes: 46 and 50cm, all in an easy-access step-through frame style. The Medeo T9 City electric bike will begin delivering to Gazelle’s network of North American retailers immediately and will have an MSRP of $2,299 USD. Gazelle customers outside of North America should contact their local distributor for pricing.
