Specialized's Turbo Creo SL Expert EVO is made for more than just road adventures. Its been designed to give you a boost on the path less travelled whether that involves gravel surfaces, forest routes or even public bridleways. Specialised has taken years of research and design experience from their Turbo range and bettered it to offer you the finest electric performance action. The FACT 11r frame uses the same grade of carbon fibre that is featured on the S-Works edition of the Turbo Creo and optimises weight, stiffness and rugged durability which is backed by Specialized's lifetime guarantee. The SL 1.1 motor offers 240watts of power jamming juice that makes difficult hill climbs, fast-paced group rides and energy-sapping headwinds a much more enjoyable task. Specialized knew that a battery that could last the distance was really important, that's why the Turbo Creo's battery lasts up to 80 miles as standard with an optional extra battery which covers a further 40 miles and sits subtly in your rear bottle cage. Path defeating components such as the 12° flared handlebars, Future Shock 2.0 suspension system and Path Finder tyres all ensure you remain comfortable on the trail. The suspension system fits within the headset and removes the imperfections of uneven surfaces which can be dialled up or down at your discretion. Finally, Shimano's Ultegra Di2 groupset offers smooth electric shifting and makes easy work of steep climbs or fast descent. So don't let anything hold you back, the Turbo Creo is ready to make your dream bike adventure possible.
Boosting your Gravel Adventures
Specialized's Turbo Creo range is the first performance electric road bike range from the company. They have gone all out to ensure the Creo revolutionises the market and sets new standards for performance electric road bikes in the industry. The SL 1.1 motor offers 240watts of trail jamming juice allowing you to explore the path less travelled whether that's on gravel or forest paths. The motor combines with a built-in power meter that tracks your output and can be a great training tool for becoming a stronger cyclist.
Cycling on Road? No Thanks.
The Turbo Creo SL Expert EVO can handle the road but it is also ready for so much more. The C 38 Roval carbon fibre wheels are protected by Specialized's Pathfinder tyres which are 38mm wide and offer enhanced grip, control and puncture protection for uneven surfaces like gravel paths, forest routes or public bridleways. In order to ensure you remain comfortable in the saddle, Specialized has equipped the EVO with a stem that offers 20mm of suspension to take the pinch out of the trail and flared handlebars that help to reduce rider fatigue. Finally, an X-Fusion 50mm Manic Dropper seatpost makes getting onto the bike quick and easy and also allows you to adapt to your routes gradient.
Battery Range that Handles Distance
As standard, the Specialized Turbo Creo features a battery that lasts up to 80 miles for long days in the saddle. You can also choose an optional extra battery which fits subtly into your rear bottle cage and offers a further 40 miles of enjoyable riding. If you're worried about how much range you've got left, don't be. The battery connects to Specialized's Mission Control phone app to tell you all you need to know about your battery's life. If you'd prefer to keep things simple the onboard Turbo Connect Unit lets you know how much battery is left in the tank.
