Specialized Turbo Vado SL 5.0 2021 Electric Bike Brushed Aluminium

Season : 2021

Brand : Specialized

Code : 93920-300

The Specialized Turbo Vado SL 5.0 is your ticket to expanding your riding further than you ever thought you would. Explore more, get fitter and ride faster, and let the bike do the hard work for you.

"SL" means super light. The Turbo Vado SL is 40% lighter than the average electric bike. Carry it down stairs, take it on the train, lift it on and off the car rack without breaking a sweat. The Vado SL features nimble handling and manoeuvrability with the weight in the right place, keeping the centre of gravity low and the front end light for precise and agile steering.

The SL 1.1 drive system provides a seamless integration of electrical assistance with no surges or power jump, a natural power curve giving you the smoothest ride possible. With a great range and user friendly dispaly and remote,you have all the information you need at the touch of a button. You can also control the integrated front and rear lighting system from the remote, which you can pair to the Mission Control smartphone app via ANT+ or Bluetooth.

The Shimano Deore SLX/XT combination 12 speed drivetrain gives you smooth, slick and reliable gear changes over a huge range of gears while the hydraulic disc brakes give you the modulation and stopping power to control your speed when you need to, whatever the weather and whatever the riding conditions.

DT Swiss wheels are lightweight, reliable and fast rolling, ready to take on long miles in city streets or country lanes. The front fork is not only made of carbon fibre to take away the buzz of the tarmac as well as reducing the weight, it also features Specialized's revolutionary Future Shock system, providing a small amount of travel under the handlebars to give you just the right amount of compliance without adding the bulk that comes with a conventional suspension fork.

"Vado" means "I go". With the Turbo Vado SL, you can go wherever you want, whenever you want, a whole lot faster than you ever have before.

Battery anxiety? Not with a Turbo SL. The discreet and compact SL Range-Extender Battery provides up to 40 additional miles (64km). More range, more riding. Click to see the range extender: https://www.rutlandcycling.com/accessories/electronics/specialized-sl-range-extender-battery-160wh__481271
