Brand New Gazelle Eclipse Review – The “Comfort Trekker”

by Nathan Schaumann

The Gazelle Eclipse is a high-end Class 3 e-bike designed in the Netherlands. It’s stunningly good-looking, and features Gazelle’s recognizable, robust, and unique v-shape stem integrated with the handlebar. The Gazelle Eclipse successfully blends traditional Dutch design cues with more contemporary sporty elements, such as a Bosch motor system offering up to 28 mph pedal assist, and an impressive battery range.

The Eclipse can be used for commuting, running errands, or even mild trail exploration. Also, thanks to its ergonomically designed saddle, handlebar, and grips, as well as the use of high-quality components throughout the frame and suspension system, this bike is an absolute pleasure to ride.

In this review, we’ll go through the things we love and hate about the Gazelle Eclipse, as well as whether or not we think you should buy it.

Things We Love

Power: Reliable and powerful, Bosch’s high-performance line-speed motors give you enough power and torque to conquer virtually any hill. The large 750Wh battery also ensures that the bike has a long cruising range, stretching the commuting possibilities.

Tech: With the advanced Bosch Intelligence System, you can connect your devices to the Gazelle Eclipse system to take advantage of GPS-controlled navigation, and personalize your settings for an enhanced riding experience.

Design: In addition to being aesthetically stunning, the design prioritizes user comfort: stable, sporty geometry ensures a relaxed and upright posture.

Room For Improvement

Price: The premium quality and state-of-the-art features of the Gazelle Eclipse come at a higher price than more basic level 3 e-bikes. This may put off budget-conscious drivers, especially if they don’t need all the bells and whistles that the Eclipse offers.

Performance: Furthermore, the Eclipse’s geometry is much more focused on comfort and stability rather than speed and agility, which means it may feel less powerful than e-bikes designed for high-intensity riding.

The Freshly Charged Take

We’re confident the Gazelle Eclipse delivers on its promise of style, performance and exceptional comfort. If your top priorities are a smooth, safe ride coupled with luxury and cutting-edge technology, then you should seriously consider the Eclipse.

However, if you’re on a budget or just want an ultra-sporty e-bike experience, you may want to explore other options like the Lectric or Aventon lineup.
