Introducing the Specialized Vado SL, a super-light electric hybrid bike perfect for daily commutes or fast workouts. Weighing 40% less than the full-power Vado, it offers exceptional ride quality, range, and power. Equipped with bright lights and Turbo Control Unit. Lightweight and ideal for city commuting. The Turbo SL technology provides a natural feel with long-range battery and lightweight motor. Perfect for any ride, confidence with less weight.

Meet the Vado SL. This super-light e-bike was designed to take on anything from daily commutes through urban landscapes to clocking even faster workouts. Need to carry your bike? No sweat. Weighing 40% less than the full-power Vado there’s no other electric bike out there with ride quality range and power like this. All you need to do is get on and go.

The Vado SL comes equipped with everything you need to start riding right away. First, the extra-bright built-in lights give you higher visibility in low-light areas. Next, the MasterMind Turbo Control Unit (TCU) makes it easy to view ride info on the go. The Nimbus tyres roll fast on or off the pavement with plenty of grip, and the Vado SL's featherweight status also makes it perfect for city commuting and offers far more than ride quality — it means you can hang it on a wall or car rack. And it makes public transportation a breeze.

So whether you're going fast or far or both, the Vado SL provides the confidence to do it all at a fraction of the weight.

Key Features:

  • Lightweight: Lift your bike onto a rack, carry it up stairs, or ride nimbly around town thanks to the category-leading lightweight of the Turbo SL technology optimised frame materials design.
  • Comfortable and Confident: Body position and handling are optimised to deliver unsurpassed riding comfort, confidence, and control. Powerful hydraulic disc brakes reign in your speed while larger tyres provide maximum traction for turning and stopping.
  • Turbo SL: The heart of the Vado is its Turbo SL technology, the advanced and integrated electric bike system that delivers an unequaled combination of lightweight, natural feel, anti-theft functions, training tips, a full-function bike computer, ride anywhere range, and more.

The speed limit at which the motor will stop supporting may vary significantly by region and is based on local requirements. It may also affect range: a higher speed limit may result in less range.
