Specialized Turbo Vado SL 4.0 2021 Electric Hybrid Bike

Summary

The Specialized Turbo Vado SL 4.0 is your ticket to riding faster and further than you ever thought possible. Explore, get fit and let the bike take away the hard work.

“SL” means super light. The Turbo Vado SL is 40% lighter than the average electric bike. Carry it down stairs, take it on the train, lift it on and off the car rack without breaking a sweat. The Vado SL features nimble handling and manoeuvrability with the weight in the right place, keeping the centre of gravity low and the front end light for precise and agile steering.
The SL 1.1 drive system provides a seamless integration of electrical assistance with no surges or power jump, a natural power curve giving you the smoothest ride possible. With a great range and user friendly dispaly and remote,you have all the information you need at the touch of a button. You can also control the integrated front and rear lighting system from the remote, which you can pair to the Mission Control smartphone app via ANT+ or Bluetooth.
The Shimano Deore 10 speed drivetrain gives you smooth and slick gear changes with excellent reliability, while the hydraulic disc brakes give you the modulation and stopping power to control your speed when you need to, whatever the weather and whatever the riding conditions.
“Vado” means “I go”. With the Turbo Vado SL, you can go wherever you want, whenever you want, a whole lot faster than you ever have before.

The Specialized Turbo Vado SL 4.0 - The perfect e-bike?
Electric bikes just seem to be getting better and better and the 2021 Specialized Turbo Vado SL 4.0 is a perfect example of how much electric bike technology has progressed over the last few years. The Vado SL uses the same motor as the £10k+ S-Works Creo, and an excellent 320Wh internal battery (that gives a potential range of up to 80 miles). The motor is super smooth, quiet and gives you the kind of assist that makes you feel like a pro rider! The Vado SL is currently my favourite e-bike in this price range and weighs in at a svelte 14.9kg making it one of the lightest hybrid electric bikes currently available. A big thumbs up all the way!
