Specialized Turbo Vado SL 4.0 Step-Through EQ 28" - E-bike as an everyday hero

The Specialized Turbo Vado SL 4.0 Step-Through EQ is a fully equipped E-bike for commuters and urban riders that features a lowered top tube for easier climbing and descending. It was equipped with the super-light SL 1.1 engine and a 320 Wh battery, which provide a range of up to 130 kilometres. Front and rear lighting, pannier rack and fenders contribute to its suitability for everyday use, as do the robust 11-speed shifters from SRAM or the reliable Tektro disc brakes. With the Turbo Vado SL 4.0 you have a fast, efficient transfer and transport solution that also amazes with its low weight thanks to the lightweight frame and aluminium wheels. Tyres with extra puncture protection and reflective stripes round off the model.

E-Bikes by Specialized
Specialized E-bikes are designed in California and developed with Swiss technology. They take the " It's you, only faster" approach, which means that you have the impression of riding a " normal" bike without motor assistance, but with at least twice as much power. Specialized E-bikes are characterised by a particularly quiet, smooth running electric drive. Due to two special freehub bodies, the crankset and motor shaft are decoupled from each other in such a way that no additional pedalling resistance occurs when the motor is switched off (at speeds above 25 km/h). The battery of Specialized electric bikes is aesthetically and well protected integrated in the down tube. An innovative Battery Management System (BMS) is used to maximise battery life and protect the cell structure. The bike communicates with the rider via the so-called. The bike communicates with the rider via the Turbo Connect Unit (TCU), which connects via Bluetooth and ANT+ to a Turbo Connect display, third-party devices and/or the Specialized Mission Control app. This offers additional options such as route planning, route recording or automatic capacity management.
