About the Specialized Vado SL 4.0 Stepthrough EQ

Commuters: are you ready to start and end your work day with a smile? Then you better pay attention to the Specialized Vado SL 4.0 ST EQ.

The name might look like something you'd choose as an internet password, but this is a machine built for the real world, not just to look pretty on screen. That said, this bike can speak to your smartphone via Specialized's Mission Control app.

Ride with a smile...everyday

The bike is equipped for everyday, every weather use. You have mudguards, lights, a rack and a kickstand fitted to the bike as standard, and don't they fit well? There are no clumsy add-ons here. These accessories are tailored to fit the bike to keep it sleek and tidy, and to make sure the weight of the bike doesn't get too high.

Relax and enjoy

The Mixte frame (MIX-tee) allows you to get on and off easily - even if you are carrying a lot on the rear rack, but we also think it gives this e-bike a nice relaxed look, especially when combined with the pastel tones of the frame. And relaxed is exactly how you'll feel riding this bike to work and back every day. A great model from the Californian brand.

Summary: This simple yet versatile e-bike will suit a commuter or town/city rider who is an already capable rider but who wants to add even more cycling into their week. 

As with all our e-bikes, this is available to test-ride. Contact your nearest showroom to reserve your slot.

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).
