Santa Monica, CA, January 22, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Aika Trading is proud to announce that they are now stocking two brand-new city bikes: the CityZen and the Van Stael. These two bicycles are characterized by a stylish, sporty design with high-quality components, and a remarkably light weight.
The CityZen is a real lifestyle city bike, as well as the sportiest and fastest bike in the Gazelle product line. It combines minimalist design with high-value components. The bicycle comes in two flavors: the C7 with a Shimano Nexus 7 and the S9 with a Shimano Deore rear derailleur. The CityZen C7, which weighs in at less than 15 kilos and is equipped with a Shimano Nexus gear hub and maintenance-free roller brakes, is ideal for comfortable city cycling. Weighing just 12.1 kilograms, the CityZen S9 is especially light-weight, making it very easy to maneuver. Prices for both bikes start at $1098, and the CityZen is available in both men’s and women’s models.
Gazelle Tour de France
The Van Stael is a stylish retro city bike inspired by the Netherlands’ number 1 classic: the Gazelle Tour de France. Just like the CityZen S9, the Van Stael is very light (12.8 kilograms), making it very maneuverable. The robust steel frame sports modern styling and is fitted with quality components, such as a seat and handlebar grips by Brooks. The starting price for the Van Stael is $1048.
Starting from the beginning of next year, Gazelle’s product line will have a simpler, clearer, and more logical structure. One of the most important changes is the new way that the various models will be named. The e-bikes will be called Hybrid, and the location of the electric motor will also be included the name of the model: F (Front) or M (Mid). As of next year the city bikes will be known as Comfort and models with a derailleur will be redubbed as Trekking. Due to this change, the names Medeo and Fuente will no longer be used. Instead, these bicycles will take the ‘family names’ Orange and Chamonix. The type of bicycle will be indicated with the letters C (Comfort), T (Trekking), S (Sportive trekking). The number of speeds will also included in the model name. For example, the Orange Plus Innergy will henceforth be called the Orange C7 Hybrid F, indicating that it is a seven-speed electric city bike with the motor in the front wheel.
