Product Information

Specialized Turbo Vado 5.0

Vado is the vehicle of choice for everything. Be it a trip to the grocery store, your daily commute or a vigorous workout the Vado is perfectly equipped to tick all boxed. Specialized designed this bike to be more than a workhorse, but also a bike to really enjoy, one to take a longer way home and find yourself on a longer-than-planned adventure—and that's backed up with such a large battery capacity!. This really is an electric bike for life. The smoothest-riding e-Bike experience yet, Vado is designed to boldly take on the ever-changing landscape you’ll encounter as a daily rider, carry whatever you need it to, and keep you riding more often. The redesigned geometry brings a new level of comfort and performance and ensures you are in the best position whatever the planned purpose of the ride is. The riding position is a balanced combination of comfort and speed, whilst ensuring you always have a comfortable view of the busy roads ahead. OR, for the slightly more adventurous, the trails ahead. Thanks to the 80 mm of travel provided by the RockShox Recon Silver RL the Vado is just as enjoyable offroad. Finished with lights, mudguards and a rack the Vado is the complete eBike for everyday use.
