Specialized has designed the Turbo Levo as one of their entry-level electric mountain bikes but it's Motor is the same as featured on their whole range including the S-Works addition! The 2.1 Motor is cased in Magnesium and has been improved by Specialized as it's now 15% smaller and a whole 400g lighter than it's previous model. When the 2.1 Motor is paired with Specialized's M2 500Wh battery, the Turbo Levo has enough range to provide you with a whole day of trail thrilling fun whilst keeping the battery safe as it's completely enclosed into the frame. With Specialized's Mission Control app, you have a wide range of settings to choose from allowing you a variety of riding options; the Turbo, the Eco and the Trail along with two brand new settings: the Stealth & the Shuttle. The Stealth allows you to turn off all the lights featured on the top-tube and Shuttle takes the power straight up to 100% for a quick and easy uplift. You can also turn the assist off entirely which is great for descending. The Turbo Levo's M5 premium aluminium frame makes for a strong and reliable base to keep you riding comfortably all day long. Specialized has also ensured the Turbo Levo is fitted with hydraulic disc brakes to provide you with superior control when riding the more tricky trails, ensuring instant stopping power is at your fingertips at all times. To keep your ride comfortable, the Turbo Levo is also equipped with a Rockshox 35 fork that allows 150mm of front and rear travel. Specialized added a Sram S700 11-Speed groupset to make sure your shifting is both reliable and smooth when you're out and about travelling the trails. And finally, the Turbo Levo features 29x2.6" wheels that were a proven rider favourite based on Specialized's feedback as they provide you with an ideal combination of super control from the larger tyres as well as maintaing a fast-rolling speed to keep you shooting through the forest.
The Turbo Levo Package
The new Turbo Levo brings the most advanced eMTB frame, motor and battery technology to as many riders as possible. Specialized has taken their advanced M5 alloy chassis and the smoothest and most powerful motor on the market and paired them with the most value-packed drivetrain, suspension and brake components available. The result is a bike that puts plenty of high-dollar eMTBs to shame.
The Turbo Levo is a fully-fledged progressive trail bike. Specialized has lengthened the reach, kept the chainstays nice and short, and maintained a low centre of gravity. Next, Specialized slackened the head angle for more confident descending and steepened the seat angle to improve climbing efficiency.
The Motor & Battery
The Levo’s Specialized 2.1 motor amplifies your pedalling input by a mind-blowing 410%. Specialized's M2 batteries provide you with plenty of range. What’s more, Specialized's Mission Control App can handle battery management automatically, ensuring your battery will last as long as you need it to. More power. More miles per ride. More awesome.
