Specialized Turbo Vado SL 4.0 Step-Through Electric Hybrid Bike 2021

With impeccable handling and a lightweight design, the Specialized Turbo Vado SL 4.0 Step-Through Electric Hybrid Bike is ideal for commutes, workouts and exploring the world around you. Featuring the Specialized SL 1.1 motor and a sleek, 320Wh integrated downtube battery, it retains the look of a classic hybrid, but with 35Nm of torque to effectively double your hill-climbing power up to an assisted maximum of 15.5 mph / 25 km/h. Light and manoeuvrable, this bike is perfect for city and town living but can ride off the beaten path to take on cycle-path adventures.

Designed to improve your daily bike rides, the step-through design ensures easy on/off at traffic lights, and bright front and rear lights ensure visibility for when the sun goes down. Durable and lightweight, the alloy wheels are paired with fast-rolling Specialized Pathfinder tyres, which come in a wide 38c width to deliver grip on both paved and gravel surfaces. 10-speed Shimano shifting provides a wide range of gears, perfect for undulating terrain and an aftermarket range extender can increase the assistance range up to 120 miles.
