Specialized Turbo Vado 3.0 Step-Through Electric Hybrid Bike 2021
Amalgamating a powerful pedalling assistance system, a rugged but responsive frame and dependable components, the Specialized Turbo Vado 3.0 Step-Through Electric Hybrid Bike is ideal for regular commuting or town themed errands.
The bottom bracket motor has three assistance levels and reacts intuitively to the riders pedalling, kicking in with more power on hills and during accelerations. This smooth and quiet motor is partnered by its long-lasting battery, and both are neatly concealed within the frame’s silhouette. Battery recharging takes just four hours from flat while ride metrics such as speed, distance, time and more are conveniently shown on the handlebar-mounted Turbo Connect display unit. In addition to this unit, the Mission Control smartphone app affords further rider immersion by granting the opportunity to adjust motor settings and perform system diagnostics.
The aluminium frame is robust but light and combines with the SR SunTour MOBIE30 suspension fork to deliver an enthusiastic but composed ride character across all road conditions. Specialized’s comfortable Fitness geometry links the frame and fork, and a step-through top tube format makes getting on and off the bike a cinch, even when in a hurry. Strong wheels and puncture-resistant tyres cut maintenance time to a minimum, Shimano 9-speed gears are accurate and dependable, and a hydraulic disc brake setup stops confidently in all weather.
