Specialized Turbo Vado SL 4.0 EQ Electric Hybrid Bike 2022

With a superior range and high power capability, the Specialized Turbo Vado SL 4.0 EQ Electric Hybrid Bike is an e-bike enhanced for truly enjoyable everyday use. The E5 Aluminium frame is robust and sturdy, whilst remaining ultra-lightweight to ensure manageability should you need to travel up or downstairs or lift it up into a bike rack - and nimble handling is assured when tacking commuter traffic. DryTech mudguards ward off dirt and road spray to keep you clean even when exploring further afield on dirt or gravel, and the rear rack is ideal for bags and panniers so you're never weighed down by unwieldy items.

Suited to commuting, errands, cruising around town or even a long day in the saddle, the Vado 4.0 can handle whatever you throw at it. The low placement of the battery and 1.95kg motor ensures a dropped centre of gravity for improved, nimble handling and the Specialized SL 1.1 motor charges up to give a superior range of 130km and provides assistance up to 15.5 mph / 25 km/h, so there's no need to reach for the car keys. The motor works in sync with your pedal rate to diminish any chance of sudden decelerations and when the extra watts are no longer required, the motor’s clutch system fully decouples from the crank to eliminate drag for a resistance-free ride.

Integrated front and rear lights let you see and be seen, so you can ride confidently day to night whilst reflective detailing on the frame and quick, grippy Nimbus II tyres boost visibility further.

Tektro hydraulic disc brakes ensure sure stopping power regardless of weather conditions - staying responsive even at speed. As the landscape changes and you're onto rolling roads with sharper gradients, 10-speed Shimano Deore components let you switch gears with ease to deliver smooth shifting for the long haul. On-road, off the beaten track, to the shops and around the block, The Vado EQ 4.0 will get you there comfortably and in style.
