About the Specialized Turbo Creo SL Comp Carbon EVO
Get on track...the gravel track
Gravel e-bikes are proving hugely popular with our customers. A light frame, sporty set up and crucially the ability to come off the tarmac and onto gravel tracks so you can kiss the traffic goodbye and breath in some fresher air out in nature. If the traditionally chunky e-bike frame made you think twice about getting one, a gravel e-bike might be just the ticket.
Lightest e-bike in its class
The feature that earns this bike its price tag is the carbon frame. The FACT 11r carbon frame means this bike is kilograms lighter than similar electric bikes. This isn't just a nice feature, it helps extend the range of the bike. Gravel bikes, and any e-bike with a slimline battery, tend to have a slightly smaller battery capacity than, say, hybrid e-bikes. That superlight frame eases the burden on the motor, giving you more mileage.
The Specialized designers have created a frame that should fit most riders, which is especially important with bikes like this where you adopt that classic sporty position. A long wheel base, raked out fork and a low bottom bracket are there to help you maintain stability when you're building up your speed. That carbon frame will of course increase the frame stiffness as well for superb handling.

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).
