Specialized Turbo Vado SL 4.0 2022 Step through Hybrid Bike Umber

4 out of 5 Customer Rating

The Details

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. There's a fully integrated and secure Specialized 320Wh downtube battery with optional Range Extender compatibility for up to 120 miles of range.
 

The Shimano Deore 10 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. The bike also features an integrated front and rear lighting system that keeps you visible in dark conditions. Plus, Pathfinder tires roll fast on or off the pavement with plenty of grip.
 
"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 maneuverability with the weight in the right place, keeping the centre of gravity low and the front end light for precise and agile steering.
 
"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

Our Verdict

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.
