Specialized Turbo Vado SL 5.0 Electric Hybrid Bike 2023

The Specialized Turbo Vado SL 5.0 Electric Hybrid Bike blurs the lines between weekday commuter and weekend explorer, all aided by a lightweight motor and battery to help lighten the load.

The 320Wh battery and SL motor peak at 240 watts of additional power, adding up to 180% of the rider's input to make hills easy and longer rides more manageable, and providing assistance up to 15.5mph/25kph. The lightweight design means that this additional power doesn’t come at the expense of handling, keeping the bike agile and responsive. Everything is controlled by the handlebar-mounted MasterMind Turbo Control Unit (TCU) that has customisable display fields and ANT+/Bluetooth connectivity.

Daily duties are made more convenient by the addition of integrated lights and mudguard mounts whilst the 38c Pathfinder tyres and Fitness Geometry ensure that longer explorations are rewarding and not limited to the tarmac. Furthermore, the Future Shock 1.5 fork provides a small amount of suspension that is designed to help with comfort and control, whether on rough trails or badly surfaced streets.

SRAM’s 12-speed, mountain bike-derived GX / NX Eagle drivetrain offers a vast range of gears thanks to the 11-50t cassette, so hills or heavy shopping won’t pose a problem. Similarly, Tektro hydraulic disc brakes provide easy modulation and power when heading downhill.
