Specialized have broadened their Creo range of performance
e-bikes with two new models, unveiled today.
Trickling down much of the technology and design from the
S-Works Turbo Creo and their recent Expert-level models, the new
Comp is intended to make an e-bike a realistic option for an even
wider range of riders.
Specialized's SL 1.1 motor, developed in-house, provides up to
240W of power and is designed to be as unobtrusive as possible;
quiet in operation, smoothly picking up or easing off assistance,
and with no noticeable friction when not in use.
The battery tucked away inside the down tube provides up to 80
miles of range as standard, and an optional extra range extender
increases that by a further 40 miles if needed.
Both models are priced at £5499, and the decision between the
two comes down to the kind of riding you prefer.
The Turbo Creo SL Comp is aimed at endurance road riding, whilst
the Turbo Creo SL Comp EVO is built primarily as a gravel/adventure
machine. Both have the same frame and share most of the same build
kit (we'll look at the differences below), and both feature the
same motor and battery.
