GazelleRoyal Dutch Gazelle was founded in 1892, and started their own production using the Gazelle name in 1902. They are based in Dieren, Netherlands and are the largest and the most famous bicycle manufacturer in the Netherlands.
For many cycling is a way of life, whether it be long touring rides, the school run or the weekly shop, Gazelle are dedicated to designing and manufacturing bicycles to suit all cycling needs, whilst ensuring that the rider is safe, secure and comfortable. They are often nominated and win various awards including; in 2010 the Readerís Digest annual brand survey found Gazelle to be the most trusted brand in Europe; In 2009 the Chamonix Innergy was the first ever electric bike to win the Dutch Bike of the year, as well winning the Dutch design award, good industrial design and various innovation awards.
In addition to making strong, reliable bicycles Gazelle are dedicated to minimising environmental issues during their production wherever possible; they still only use water based paints and FSC certified paper for packaging and promotional materials.
For many years Walton Street Cycles has been an authorised Gazelle dealer and repair centre, with an extensive range of Gazelle bicycles available there really is something for everybody.
