What the Manufacturer Says...

"There's no other e-bike out there with ride quality range and power like this at a weight that's light enough to carry. The Turbo Vado SL 5.0 is best for workouts riding beyond the beaten path and last-minute adventures. All you need to do is get on and go. Extra-bright built-in lights in front and back mean you'll see and be seen. A Turbo Connect display makes it easy to view ride info. Plus Pathfinder tires roll fast on or off the pavement with plenty of grip."

As with all our e-bikes, this is available to test-ride. Contact us to arrange.

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).
