How did we manage to take one of our most versatile and fun
Turbo e-bikes and make it even better? Well, we started with the
smile-inducing speed and agility of the Turbo Vado 4.0 and added
gravel-taming, all-terrain tires and a plush, bump-smoothing
suspension seatpost-giving you the freedom and confidence to take
on any road, even the one less travelled.
Beginning with the integrated Specialized 1.2 motor, the Turbo Vado
proves itself as the ultimate city bike. The 1.2 motor features a
silent operating design with our Custom Rx Street Tune that takes
the output and makes it the most usable for an urban environment.
Think of it this way: The more power you put out, the more power
the motor puts out, and this makes accelerations from a standstill
both quick and efficient. The belt driven motor is also smooth,
silent, and free of annoying vibrations.
For the Vado 4.0, we developed a custom Specialized U1-500 battery
that seamlessly integrates into the frame, is lockable, and easily
removable for simplified charging. In other words, there's plenty
of juice to take you to and from work, a trip to the grocery store,
or even to that new café on the other side of the city.
The new wired Turbo Connect Display (TCD-w) is the best way to view
data on your Turbo. It not only displays important ride metrics
(speed, cadence, rider power, distance, battery level, time, etc.),
it also allows you to connect the latest version of the Mission
Control App for an enhanced Turbo experience. With our free app for
iOS and Android phones, you easily customize motor parameters,
control your range, record/upload rides, and perform basic system
To top off all of the innovative features, we chose a worry-free
spec that features Shimano 10-speed components, all-terrain tyres,
suspension seatpost, hydraulic disc brakes, front/rear lights, rear
rack and mudguards.
