Are you looking for the best electric bike for riding the paths, commuting or cruising around town? Then look no further than the Specialized Turbo Como, Vado, and Vado SL – the bikes that make up the family of Specialized Turbo Active Electric Bikes. These top-in-class ebikes provide the best rider experience because Specialized designed them from the ground up. In other words, while many bike brands started with existing bike frame and put a motor and battery on it, Specialized started from scratch to design these ebikes. What that means for you is the these are the best handling, best rider experience and best technology ebike you can buy.
Let’s take a look at what makes each of these models awesome.
The Specialized Como eBike offers a super comfortable, upright position so you can truly take in the world around you as you’re riding. Plus, 2″ wide tires that keep the bumps at bay for ideal urban cruising, a quiet yet powerful motor weighing in at only 7.5 pounds, and up to 84 miles of range make the Como the ultimate city bike! And, there’s even more…check out this blog to see all the cool features that the Como electric bike is equipped with.
The Specialized Vado eBike is a super commuter bike that features sporty handling for easeful maneuvering of city streets, a front suspension fork to absorb the brunt of those pesky potholes, and most importantly, added pedal power so you arrive at your destination swiftly. Plus, with up to 60 miles of range you can zip around to your heart’s content and still have juice left when you arrive back home. Learn more about the Vado electric bike here.
The all-new Vado SL is You, X2. We know, that’s kind of corny, but it’s true! The Specialized SL 1.1 drive system takes your input and doubles it! Whatever you put in, you’ll get twice that out of the 240watt motor. This means that you can still achieve 28mph, you just have to work a little harder for it than the Vado, but remember that you save a tremendous amount of weight riding the SL (weighing in at 13 pounds less than the Vado). Check out this sweet new ride here.
