GET THERE FASTER
Designed to deliver the agility and feel of a “regular” bike—just with the extra “oomph” of our Specialized e-bike Technology System. Turbo Vado lets you go farther and faster than you ever thought possible.
RIDE LIKE YOU MEAN IT
Specialized motors are smooth, powerful, and quiet. Turbo Vado’s custom motor control software seamlessly amplifies your effort so that pedaling feels smooth and natural. It’s you, after all, only faster.
With plenty of juice to get the wallet you forgot at home and back to work again before your next meeting, Turbo Vado’s battery won't leave you stranded. This seamlessly integrated and lockable battery is just as easy to remove as it is to charge.
Custom-tune nearly every aspect of your ride, monitor your power use, control your range, perform basic system diagnoses, and record and upload rides—all on one app.
2.2-inch LCD display is easy to see, and the custom handlebar remote lets you view screens without ever removing your hands from the bars.
- The Turbo Vado frame features an alloy step-through frame that's pretty light and super easy to get on or off of.
- The Turbo Vado’s Specialized 1.2 E motor emphasizes efficiency and range. We also fully integrated it with the frame, and it's been custom-tuned for city riding. It intuitively reacts to the force of your pedaling, so the harder you pedal, the more power it delivers. And with an internal belt drive design, it does this without added vibration for the smoothest and most silent ride possible.
- We made the custom 460 Wh battery to be fully integrated with the frame, removable for easy charging, and lockable for added security. It communicates with the display and has multiple modes to maximize the overall efficiency and range. For range estimates based upon a variety of variables, please refer to our Turbo Range Calculator.
