Specialized Turbo Vado SL 5.0 Step-Through EQ Electric Hybrid Bike 2021
Whether commuting, exploring the city or running errands around town, the Specialized Turbo Vado SL 5.0 EQ Step-Through Electric Hybrid Bike is the new benchmark for urban travel. Equipped with the class-leading Specialized SL 1.1 motor system, this bike provides you with the power you need to climb steep hills and cruise flats without breaking a sweat, yet is lightweight and mobile for easy day to day living. The motor effectively doubles your power input, with up to 180% assistance (up to a maximum speed of 15.5 mph / 25 km/h), and the fully integrated, slender 320Wh downtube battery retains the traditional look of a non-electric bike. The ride quality is sublime, with its lightweight handling providing an exhilarating cycling experience.
Fully equipped for the rigours of daily life, this step-through EQ model comes specced with DRYTECH mudguards, a rear pannier rack and bright, integrated lighting as standard. The carbon fork pairs well with the wide Nimbus II Sport tyres, and the Future Shock 1.5 system effectively damps road vibration to reduce rider fatigue.
Hydraulic disc brakes add powerful stopping power to improve confidence on descents, and the Shimano XT/SLX drivetrain offers crisp precise shifting across the entire 12-speed gear range. The TCU2 screen ensures key ride data is available at all times, and for longer rides, an aftermarket Range Extender is available to provide up to 120 miles of assistance.
