Specialized Turbo Vado SL 5.0 2021 EQ Electric Hybrid Black / Battleship

Season : 2021

Brand : Specialized

Code : 93920-310

The Specialized Turbo Vado SL is your ticket to riding faster and further than you ever thought possible. Explore, get fit and let the bike take away the hard work.

"SL" means super light. The Turbo Vado SL is 40% lighter than the average electric bike. Carry it downstairs, 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 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 display 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 smartphone app via ANT+ or Bluetooth.

The Shimano SLX 12 speed drivetrain gives you smooth and slick gear changes with excellent reliability, 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.

"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.

Features include:

  • Integrated Turbo Connect Display to view key ride data quickly and safely
  • Extra-bright front and rear lighting to see and be seen
  • Fully integrated and secure Specialized 320Wh downtube battery
  • Specialized SL 1.1 custom lightweight motor, peak 240W / 35Nm, 2x you rider
    amplification (180% assistance), assist up to 28mph
  • Future Shock 1.5 reduces impacts from rough roads and terrain, potholes be gone!
  • Turbo SL mounted rear rack
  • DT Swiss R500 disc wheels paired with fast-rolling, high-grip, Nimbus II Sport Reflect 700 tires with BlackBelt flat protection and reflective accents to increase visibility.

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:
