Introducing the Specialized Vado SL, a super-light electric hybrid bike perfect for urban commutes or intense workouts. Built for speed and comfort with a long-range capability up to 80 mi/130 km on a single charge. Turbo SL technology offers lightweight design, superior control, and wireless updates for an unrivalled ride experience.

  • 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 Pathfinder tires 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.
  • LIGHT WEIGHT: You'll be blown away by how easy it is to 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 and specification.
  • 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 tires provide maximum traction for turning and stopping.
  • LONG-RANGE: Enjoy ride-anywhere range, go up to 80 mi / 130 km on a single charge. Need more? You can add an optional range-extender battery that fits in your water-bottle cage to take your ride even further.
  • 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.
  • BETTER OVER TIME: Because our technology never stops improving, neither will your ride experience. With new features introductions and firmware updates happening wirelessly, take your ride experience to the next level every time an update is available.
