Specialized Turbo Vado SL 5.0 Step-Through EQ Electric Hybrid Bike 2022

So light you'll forget it's electric, the Specialized Turbo Vado SL 5.0 Step-Through EQ Electric Hybrid Bike is an e-bike rethought and optimised for day-to-day use. The E5 Aluminium frame keeps weight low whilst being robust and ensuring durability, so you can hop on trains and slot it in and out of bike racks with ease, as well as stay agile when tackling traffic on the commute. Kitted out with DryTech mudguards, you're kept clean and road spray-free in poor conditions and, thanks to the Turbo SLrear rack, you can load up this bike without having to worry about how you'll carry unwieldy items.

Whether you fancy a long day in the saddle venturing a little further or need a bike to nip round and run errands on, the Turbo Vado SL 5.0 EQ is right for the job. Clunky, unresponsive e-bike handling is a thing of the past thanks to the low placement of the sub 2kg motor, placed as far down as possible to ensure a lower centre of gravity for enhanced agility. The Specialized SL 1.1 motor is geared up with a range of up to 130km and 180% assistance up to a maximum speed of 15.5mph / 25kph, so you can save yourself a car trip, and it works in sync with your cadence to eliminate any sudden decelerations. When you're happy cruising unassisted, the motor’s clutch system can fully decouple from the crank to banish drag or resistance for a smooth, comfortable ride.

Ultra-bright front and rear lights coupled with reflective accents on the fast-rolling and grippy Nimbus II tyres ensure visibility - so you can ride with added confidence in the knowledge that you're safe and seen on the road.

Superior stopping power is a given with the Vado 5.0 EQ thanks to Tektro hydraulic disc brakes; super responsive and capable in all weather conditions. For undulating rides with challenging gradients, 12-speed SRAM GX Eagle components come into play to provide precise performance with smooth shifting thanks to smaller gear-to-gear jumps and gearing options to best suit your needs. With a higher level of integration, Specialized have left no stone unturned when it comes to refining and tweaking the Vado 5.0 EQ for truly optimised performance - this is a bike that brings a smile to every ride.
