Specialized Turbo Vado SL 4.0 Electric Hybrid Bike 2021

Built for commuting, cruising and just enjoying the ride, the Specialized Turbo Vado SL 4.0 Electric Hybrid Bike is a game-changer. 40% lighter than the average e-bike, there's no lugging this bike around - it's manageable, light enough to carry up or downstairs, sling into a bike rack and take on and off the bus or train should your journey be just that bit longer. This is an e-bike that has been rethought and optimised for true everyday use. The E5 aluminium frame is light, sturdy and reliable, crafted with a relaxed geometry that's not overly aggressive nor too upright; the silhouette is kept slick and neat thanks to internal cabling. The sub 2kg motor is situated as low as possible to ensure a dropped centre of gravity which serves to keep the bike nimble in and around traffic, so there's no clunky steering.

The Specialized SL 1.1 motor system provides handy assistance up to 25km/h or 15.5mph and acts in sync with your cadence to bring you reliable power that won't shock you with a sudden deceleration at your maximum speed. The motor system can also fully decouple from the crank if you're no longer in need of the extra watts, so there's no drag to hold you up when riding unassisted. With a full charge, the battery is amped up with 320Wh (watt-hours) and the motor has a range of up to 130km - perfect for the commute a few times over or if a weekend exploration is calling your name. Specialized Pathfinder Sports tyres are chunky, with improved grip for comfort over uneven ground. Fully mudguard and rack ready, you can kit this bike out and load it up to ride safely night or day, thanks to bright front and rear lights and a bell to let people know you're there.

10-speed Shimano Deore components promise smooth shifting and a broad selection of gearing options for all gradients, whilst Tektro HD-R290 hydraulic disc brakes deliver superb stopping power. Ride confidently on your commute in the knowledge that these brakes will boost your safety thanks to reliable stopping regardless of the weather.
