The ‘S’ at the end of the model name stands for SHIMANO – the iconic bicycle component brand – but it could just as well stand for ‘stylish’, ‘supportive’ and ‘stable’. The features on this bike illustrate why electric motors were a godsend for Dutch-style bikes. This is no clunky ‘granny shopper’ (not that there’s anything wrong with that)!
The Orange C8 HMS makes full use of Shimano’s expertise by integrating the lightweight SHIMANO STEPS motor with the fast-changing SHIMANO NEXUS hub gearset. The result is a bike that seamlessly keeps your momentum up through the ride: no clunky gear changing, no waiting for extra power to kick in, and it even changes down the gears automatically when you stop!
