The SL range is 40% lighter than the average electric bike

Could be the most stylish commuter/urban electric bike we've ever sold. 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 EQ is best for your daily commute, quick errands and getting around town. Extra-bright, built-in lights in front and back mean you'll see and be seen. DRYTECH fenders keep water and road spray away, and a standard rear rack is always ready for your bags and panniers. This is your go-to for local transportation.

About the Specialized Turbo Vado SL 5.0 EQ

Super stylish

With a slim frame, beautiful paint work and accessories that are so well fitted it would make a Saville Row tailor proud, the Turbo Vado SL 5.0 is an electric bike that you would feel incredibly proud to ride around town in. 

Super light

At just 14.9kg it is 40% lighter than most full sized electric bikes. Not only does this make it easier to pedal above the 15.5mph motor speed limit, but handling the bike is so much easier to. If you need to carry it inside for any reason, this is easy to do. 

Super Efficient

The gearing on this bike is very efficient, so on top of the light frame, you'll find that your battery efficiency is very high. So even though you might think that the 320wh battery capacity sounds small, on a bike as light and as well geared as this, you should get very good mileage per charge.
