They dropped 400g out of the frame over the original Levo and then remodelled the motor with a smaller, direct-mount magnesium casing to drop another 400 grams. It’s as easy to tune and upgrade, and shops don’t seem to be as put off or intimidated by it as some other electric bicycles in my experience, but it still has cutting edge technology there. Please verify with your local Specialized marketing representative to verify pricing in regions outside of the United States. The cheapest Turbo Levo SL Comp uses an alloy frame, while the rest are full-carbon. Extremely lightweight and satisfying. It’s meant to “just work” without a whole lot of thought and to fit right and ride well.

Here’s a quick guide on how to upload and attach photos or you can call me using the contact page here and I’ll try to help :D. Alas no button to upload picts in the comments. The Specialized Turbo Levo SL bucked the trend and was among the first sub-40-pound eBikes available aimed at riders looking at a more ‘natural’ riding experience while still benefitting from electronic assistance. Boost hub spacing for strength, varied front and rear tire for improved handling and traction,…... A high-speed, feature-complete, urban electric bike with unique tubular fenders that have flexible extensions and water routing system to keep your legs, back and face dry, integrated lights and a tight modern rack. I would consider them a leader. Seamlessly integrated Brose motor and downtube battery pack, completely purpose built frame available in two…... An extremely fast, quiet and stiff electric bike with premium drivetrain and brake components and sleek integrated lights, available in four frame sizes for improved fit. Whether you’re using an ebike to recover between hard rides, more of a weekend warrior or someone dealing with an injury, managing seasonal snowfall, or building trails, this thing is a blast to ride… but it does sacrifice on utility. I love the long rubberized slap guard on the right chainstay and appreciate the stainless steel chainring with narrow wide tooth pattern and plastic top guide to prevent drops. It is a fantastic e-bike with the quality one would expect from Specialized. You’ve got three choices for power and they can be modified using the app. Product Description. The carbon frame is 600-700g lighter than the alloy version so even with a 700Wh battery as stand… Currently, very few riders want to announce to everyone on the trail that they’re on an e-bike. It’s not as comfortable as the FSR full suspension models which is what I chose because of my knee and back injuries, but with high-volume 4.6″ wide tires, this is still way more comfortable than average and the air fork is great. https://www.specialized.com/us/en/men/bikes/turbo/turbo-levo-ht-comp-fat/118334, https://photos.app.goo.gl/Q7WYGLWgbkQTSL9E3, Specialized Turbo Levo SL Expert Carbon Review, All Mountain Electric Mountain Bike Reviews, Specialized Turbo Creo SL Comp Carbon EVO Review, Specialized Turbo Como 2.0 Low-Entry 650b Review, Specialized Turbo Levo FSR Expert 6Fattie Review, Specialized Turbo Levo Hardtail Comp 6Fattie Review, Specialized Turbo Levo FSR Comp 6Fattie Review, Specialized S-Works Turbo Levo FSR 6Fattie Review, The bike frame is beautiful, I love that it hides cables in addition to the motor and battery pack, there isn’t even a display panel here… it’s meant to blend in, This is one of the few electric mountain bikes I’ve tested that has bumpers to prevent oversteer and frame contact of the fork (since the downtube is a bit longer), nice little touch and another “purpose built” feature, It’s becoming more common with ebikes but this is one of the few fat tire mountain models I have seen with bottle cage bosses, you could carry a folding lock, mini-pump, or use the Specialized Z-Cage and SWAT tool as shown in the review, Most of the additional weight from the motor and battery are positioned low and center on the frame for improved balance and handling, it’s always nice to be able to remove the battery too for easier lifting and transport, This is a relatively quiet and stealthy electric bike, great for riding on trails where some riders might not be as receptive to e-bikes, it’s a Class 1 so allowed in more spaces than any other type of electric bike (pedal assist only, 20 mph max speed), Priced at ~$5k this isn’t exactly a cheap electric fat bike but it’s the entry price point for the Turbo Levo fat tire series and it comes with a great warranty, dealer support (from a wide network of dealers) and is made in four sizes so the overall experience should be great, The extra fat 4.6″ tires improve comfort by adding cushion and in my experience they grip well and handle soft surfaces excellently (such as snow or sand, just lower the air pressure), they do increase drag a bit and create some buzzing noise on concrete, Sturdy thru-axle design for both wheels increases stiffness and manages trail and mountain terrain properly, the bike is purpose-built and not just an existing frame with battery and motor attached, the frame geometry is specific, I’m a big fan of the seat post dropper (which uses internally routed cabling), it allows you to mount the bike easily and handle transitions from efficient pedaling to shock-absorbing squats with the press of a lever, the bike only comes in diamond high-step so the dropper just makes it more approachable in general, I wouldn’t call this bike super light weight at ~52.3 lbs but it uses high quality Specialized M1 Aluminum and the RockShox Bluto air fork is lighter and more adjustable than a lot of competing fat ebikes, Extra large 200 mm hydraulic disc brake rotor up front front (the rear is 180 mm) offering improved stopping power and smoother more controlled stops for the added weight and forces of big tires, In addition to the mobile phone app (iOS and Android), you can actually download a special app to some Garmin devices and use them to adjust bike performance and battery use so you arrive without fully expending the charge, it connects with a special ebike area of Strava as well, The battery integration looks great and the pack doesn’t rattle but it really isn’t “locked” into the frame, a standard 6 mm hex wrench bolt holds it in place… at least you don’t have to worry about losing the key but a thief could get at it easier and they cost a lot so be careful, the battery also doesn’t have a handle or easy grip area so maybe use two hands when carrying it to be safe, The simple LED side display concept makes good sense for mountain biking because it keeps the handle bar clear and there’s less to break if you crash but the lights can attract unwanted attention, this is something I’d like to have an option to disable in the app, some people use electrical tape to cover the lights, Without a standard LCD computer screen or clicker buttons at the bar you don’t get the same feedback about speed, range or battery and aren’t able to adjust on the fly without taking a hand off the bar (or stopping completely to reach down to the buttons on the downtube), you can use your phone for more feedback but then you’ll drain its power as there is no USB charging port on the bike within reach, No rack bosses on the seat stays and a wider opening mean that hardly any racks will work with this ebike, you might have to resort to wearing a backpack, a, The Brose motor system is compact, quiet and responsive (with cadence and assist sensors) but doesn’t offer shift sensing so you can mash gears and wear the chain faster if you don’t pedal and shift carefully (just let off a bit and ease the motor out when shifting), Brose also has a new high-torque motor for 2018 but this review is for the 2017 model, Specialized opted for a more compact, smooth look at the bottom bracket so you’ve just got a thin plastic shield around the motor vs. a tougher, possibly easy to replace metal skid plate seen on some of the other bikes… just a different approach and probably fine for cross country riding, I believe there is a sticker protector for the downtube to keep little rocks and things from chipping the paint, Considering the large capacity of the battery pack and the ability to sync the bike with apps and select Garmin devices it would be nice if there was a USB charging port somewhere so you don’t drain your portable device using wireless and GPS featuers, The magnetic plug on the charger and at the bottom bracket can pick up junk from your floor (like staples, nails, iron filings etc.) Realistic mileage for the Turbo Vado SL 5.0 EQ? One approach to use the app but reserve your phone battery life would be to set the custom performance level with the phone and then just toss it in a bag or your pocket with the screen turned off. Available in six frame sizes, sold through a vast network of dealers with professional fitting systems, solid two-year comprehensive warranty. Well, its already there! Compare forks, shocks, wheels and other components on current and past MTB’s. With a new motor and an impressive weight of 16.9 kg, the brand new Specialized S-Works Levo SL 2020 paves the way for a brand new type of eMTB. Once the battery is charged (on or off the frame) you press the center rubberized button on the left side of the downtube to power on. It’s more relaxed and upright, offering cross country performance, and is being produced in four frame sizes so you don’t have to compromise body position and comfort if you’re a relatively tall or short rider. It's you, only faster. You can even remove the downtube battery and rely solely on the range extender packs, which may be eligible for commercial air travel. I was a bit bummed that the seat stays didn’t have bosses for adding a rear rack as mentioned earlier, but it’s a purist bike… what you do get are bottle cage bosses which work perfectly for the Specialized Zee-Cage and SWAT EMT tool. More of a set it and forget it ;). Specialized introduced their first electric bike internationally back in 2012, it was a road-only model that turned heads because it was beautiful looking and super quiet.
