It’s You, Only Faster.

No other e-bike offers the ride quality, range and power of the Turbo Vado SL with a weight that's light enough for you to carry. The Turbo Vado SL 4.0 is the ideal choice for fitness, riding beyond the beaten path and spontaneous adventures. Simply get on and go. Extra-bright, built-in lights in front and back mean you'll see and be seen, and can enjoy your ride for longer. A Turbo Connect display also makes it easy to view ride data. Plus, Pathfinder tyres roll fast on or off the pavement with plenty of grip.

Fully integrated and secure Specialized 320Wh downtube battery w/optional Range Extender compatibility for up to 120 miles of range.
Specialized SL 1.1 custom lightweight motor, peak 240W / 35Nm, 2x you rider amplification (180% assistance).

It's predicted that 68% of the world’s population will live in and around cities by the year 2050. Metropolises from Bogota to Berlin are re-thinking road space geared towards two wheels instead of four. The e-bike is replacing the car for many short-distance trips, unhindered by traffic, the search for parking, and costly monthly outlays. Recent studies show that e-bike riders get more exercise on average than conventional riders, thanks to the fact that e-bike riders are riding more often and for longer distances. There has never been a better time to invest in our health, our community, and the future of our planet.

Pedal and go over hills, past traffic, along new routes. Cruise to 15 mph, for up to 80 miles. Plus, at 40% lighter than the average e-bike, it’s built to take with you up the stairs, down the hall, on the train, to the office, and everywhere you go, meaning even apartment living can accommodate your new mode of transport.

So Light You’ll Forget It’s Electric

SL stands for Super Light. 40% lighter than the average e-Bike, Specialized have taken the same SL 1.1 system developed in-house to meet the needs of the world’s most discerning road and mountain riders with the Turbo Creo SL performance road bike and Turbo Levo SL trail bike and brought an entirely new and more manoeuvrable experience to the Vado family of recreation and commute-focused e-bikes.

Reliability

You want to get where you need to go. Tested across multiple continents in all weather conditions, Vado SL is designed to keep you moving. It delivers the defining combination of weight, power, range, and ride quality, giving you the confidence to ride more often and to places that you never imagined you would.

Portable Range Extender

Vado SL delivers the security of an integrated 320Wh internal battery for up to 80 miles of range with the flexibility of an optional Range Extender for up to 40 miles of additional pedalling assistance. The Range Extender is fully removable, compact, and easy to charge wherever you are.

Performance

California designed and Swiss-engineered, the new Specialized SL 1.1 system represents the very best in superlight e-Bike performance. Ultralight and quiet, the system doubles your effort with a smooth power delivery. No unnatural power curve, lurching, or motor jumps. It delivers up to 240 watts of power that are in sync with your cadence all the way to 15 mph. If you outpace the motor’s assistance, there’s no awkward cutoff or drag, just smooth riding for miles.

Confidence

When you’re comfortable, you’re confident, which will encourage you to ride more. The Vado SL is built to deliver comfort without compromising capability. High-volume tyres soak up imperfections on the terrain, handle well on both pavement and dirt, and deliver stability at all speeds. Future Shock technology on 5.0 models brings ultralight suspension to your ride, reducing the impact of rough roads and terrain by nearly 40% compared to bikes with bulkier, heavier front suspension forks. All Vado SL models are equipped standard with hydraulic disc brakes for maximum stopping power, simple 1x shifting for easy operation, integrated front and rear lights to see and be seen, high visibility reflective decals and tyres, and Body Geometry saddle and grips.

Mission Control

Connect your bike to your phone and change everything: Get where you’re going with plenty of charge by controlling the power output, diagnose potential service needs, record and share ride info with friends, and even give your bike its own custom name.
