Road or Gravel? 5 miles or 5 hours? Climb or Descend? Suffer or Smile? More power or less weight? The Specialized Creo 2 Electric Road Bike isn’t about having to choose. It’s about having it all. With more power, big range, lightweight, huge tire clearance, and Future Shock 3.0, it’s category defying making previously impossible rides possible.
Category Defying Capability
Speciailzed started with the super light FACT 11r carbon, then gave the all-new Creo 2 geometry that’s ideal for dreamy days on the road, rough days in the gravel, and everything in between. Add in the increased power, torque, and unbeaten range-to-weight of the SL 1.2 system, mounts for racks, fenders, and a third bottle cage, and the Creo 2 is not just the most capable drop bar e-bike ever made—it’s the lightest in its class.
Riding far with a lively feel requires light weight and epic range. The SL 1.2 is the most efficient e-bike system out there, unlocking maximum range-to-weight. It delivers a supernatural feel with 33% more power (320 Watts) than its predecessor, while 43% more torque (50Nm) makes quick work of the steepest hills. Sure, the SL 1.2 system makes a big statement, but you won’t hear it because it’s the quietest e-bike system in the world.
Gram for gram, no other system gives you as much power or range. An efficient motor is the key that unlocks this superior performance—lucky for you, the SL 1.2 system is the most efficient in the e-bike universe.
Since batteries are the heaviest part of any e-bike, the leading efficiency of the SL 1.2 system means you can run a smaller, lighter battery with the same or greater range compared to less efficient systems. It’s called range-to-weight ratio, and nothing comes close to the SL 1.2 system. Other systems, like TQ, are grossly inefficient, wasting up to 40% of the watt-hours stored in their heavy battery.
More Speed. More Control. More Safety.
The Creo 2 features Future Shock 3.0. with 20mm of smooth travel that reduces impacts by more than 53%. Future Shock helps keep your hands and bars steady for a smoother ride with more control to stay fast, safe, and—all while helping reduce fatigue over long days in the saddle. Building a frame that houses a motor and battery means a stiffer, more robust frame. The Future Shock 3.0 – in combination with high-volume tires – allows Creo 2 to feel smooth and compliant with that added frame rigidity.
Future Shock debuted back in 2016 but has come a long way since then. Sitting between the stem and head tube, it provides axial travel—travel in the exact opposite direction of bump forces hitting the wheel and traveling up the fork legs. It keeps the front of the bike rigid for pinpoint handling while reducing impact and vibration at the bars substantially. The result is a smoother, more confident ride to go faster on any surface.
What happens when the power of the Creo 2 meets lightweight and ultra-efficient high-volume tires? An incredibly smooth and fast ride on any road. So go ahead and enjoy the 47c Tracers, or even bump it up to 2.2” tires for gravel capability, Creo 2 will still fly on the road and carve in the dirt.
Go Ahead, Take It
Creo 2 is built to go anywhere and bring what you need. With multiple mounting options for front, rear, and low-rider racks, you can load it down for the long haul. Attach fenders with up to a 47c tire, keeping the mud at bay, and easily find confidence down tough descents with dropper posts on every model.
