5 Reasons Why Specialized Turbo Vado SL is the Perfect Ebike for Summer

Pound for pound, no other e-bike has the power, range, and ride quality than the Turbo Vado SL. Wondering what makes this electric bike by Specialized so unique? Read on for 4 major benefits of the Turbo Levo SL and discover why it’s the perfect ebike for summer fun.

Ride Further

The Turbo Levo SL features Specialized 2x You rider amplification, so you can go twice the distance in the same amount of time. Cruise to 28 mph up to 80 miles, or add an optional range extender for an additional 40 miles for rides up to 120 miles. The removable range extender is compact, making charging easy wherever you go.

Go All Over

When you want a bike that works as well on a commute to work as it does for getting in a workout, running errands, and getting around town, the Turbo Levo SL will take you there. Best for workouts and going off the beaten path — all you need to do is get on the Turbo Levo SL and go. Bright, built-in lights at the front and back mean you’ll see and be seen, while a Turbo Connect display makes it easy to view ride info. Specialized Pathfinder tires give you grip and speed in any condition. A standard rear rack is ready for your bags and belongings. You won’t find a better bike for your go-to transportation.

40% Lighter

The Turbo Levo SL is 40% lighter than other ebikes. It’s so lightweight, you’ll forget its electric. The E5 aluminum frame makes this ebike weigh as little as 33 pounds. That’s light enough for you to carry up and down stairs without breaking a sweat.

Smooth Ride That’s Beyond Belief

A full carbon chassis developed in concert with a new Turbo Full Power System motor and MasterMind Turbo Control Unit fuses together 150mm of rear suspension, progressive geometry, and sophisticated motor assist to bring you a ride like no other.

Future Shock brings ultralight suspension to your ride, reducing the harsh feel of rough roads and terrain by nearly 40% compared to bikes with bulky, heavier suspension forks.



Designed with Feedback from Ebike Riders

Specialized looked to their Turbo ebike riders to discover how to improve their experience and found 80% of rides happened in Eco Mode (the lowest level of assistance). Riders said they’d be willing to lose the top speed mode to save 10 lbs from their bike.

Specialized discovered a need for a new kind of e-bike experience — one that offers riders a better balance of ride amplification without losing the more natural feel of riding that they love. So Specialized’s Swiss engineering team launched a mission to create a new kind of ebike that eliminates any need to compromise between power, weight, range, and ride quality.

The result was Super Light System technology, Specialized’s dream blend of performance, portability, and possibility. The SL system combines smooth power (up to twice your physical output), revolutionary weight (40% lighter than typical ebikes), and increased range (up to 120 miles with Range Extender), all while delivering ride characteristics that you’d expect from the very best unassisted bikes.

When you want an ebike that’s lightweight and balanced that you can take just about anywhere, the Turbo Vado SL is the perfect bike for you.
