The 2023 Specialized Levo SL eMountain Bike is back and better than ever. Updates to the geometry make the Levo more versatile, and simply better, regardless of what type of trail you ride. These geometry updates paired with a whisper quiet Svelte motor and battery make this Levo SL the ultimate trail eMTN bike. The efficiency of the new SL motor will let you ride all day long while its lightweight build, makes it feel like a natural ride. If you’ve been wanting to ride longer and have the power to ride more trails with some help from the most capable eBike, check out the 2023 Specialized Levo SL.
Specialized is ushering in a new motor design they’ve dubbed the SL 1.2. The internal 320Wh battery of the 2023 Levo SL delivers a range of up to 5 hours (or 7.5 hours with Range Extender external battery), if that isn’t all-day potential, we don’t know what is. The motor isn’t just more efficient with 43% more torque, it’s also 33% more powerful, but also 34% more quiet than previous Levo motors. The result is that you get the power you need so naturally, seamlessly, and silently that you’ll feel superhuman, forgetting that your ride is amplified.
The 2023 Specialized Levo SL borrows its geo from the award-winning Stumpjumper EVO design. The steering precision is unmatched, allowing the rider to snake through quick switchbacks and be confident on the big sends. The frame also incorporates adjustability features from the Stumpjumper EVO’s design. This includes two flip chips in the bike’s linkage and three position headset cups to adjust the geo for both personal preference and trail conditions. The rearmost flip chip will allow you to run a 29” wheel on the rear and keep the geo the same. The flip chip near the shock allows you to adjust the bottom bracket up and down, plus or minus 5mm. Keeping it higher will allow for extra clearance over logs and boulders and shifting it lower will provide increased stability through high-speed corners. Finally, the three-position headset cups allow you to change the effective headtube angle between 63º, 64.25º, and 65.5º. The steepest angle will help riders make it through tight, technical sections, while the slackest provides stability & control if the goal for your day is to rip the descents. Planning a “ride-everything” day? Set it to the middle for the best of both worlds.
With all the new features of the 2023 Levo SL, it is the perfect all-around eMTB for anyone who wants to ride more trails, more often, with more power. It allows you to ride the most technical sections with ease and absolutely send it with confidence. Does the Levo SL sound almost perfect, but you’re looking for something lighter with no assist? Check out the Stumpjumper EVO. Want to push the limits on rougher trails on a bike with more suspension? Check out the Specialized Kenevo.
