About the Specialized Turbo Vado 3.0

All of the Specialized e-bikes have a characteristic smoothness thanks to their award-winning 1.2E motor. It's so quiet and accelerates seamlessly through the three assistant levels. The Turbo Vado 3.0 - crafted for city riding - is no exception.

Travelling uphill, the Shimano gears click through rhythmically and without hesitation, and because the front suspension offers 'just enough' bounce, there is little waste of energy. You'll find that the bike very easily maintains its cruising speed. 

Even better than that, this bike is surprisingly easy to ride above the 15.5mph motor cut off point that all e-bike have. Even with a wider tyre (700x47mm) which you think might drag, it's actually a pleasure to ride without the motor assistance. You may even surprise yourself with how fast you glide along.

With a light motor, a stiff frame, and that 'just enough' front suspension, riding this city electric bike will be the most efficient way to get around town for many people. That said, the wider, hybrid style tyre will allow you to take the Vado 3.0 on nature trails and the like too. Why not try to get the most out of your bike?

Summary: A city electric bike for efficient, no fuss travel around town. A pleasure to ride, even without motor assistance.

As with all our e-bikes, you can give them a test-ride, so get in touch to arrange one at your nearest branch.

About the Specialized brand

This is a brand born in the Californian sunshine all the way back in 1974, so you can be certain that it has fun, leisure and adventure at its heart. We have been extremely impressed by the overall feel of these bikes. They are spritely without being overly aggressive, and comfortable without feeling old-fashioned. 

If you want a bike that looks special, you'll want to look at Specialized bikes (pun intended).
