If you can characterize your life as on-the-go busy or not having enough time we made a bike for you—the Turbo Vado 3.0 Step-Through. It's made to accommodate busy lives that are always in movement which is why we took our award-winning pedal-assist technology and accelerated it well into the future.

Beginning with the integrated Specialized 1.2 E motor the Turbo Vado proves itself as the ultimate city bike. The 1.2 E uses the same hardware as our 1.2 motor but it features a tune that prioritizes efficiency. This means less peak torque and maximum output. Of course it still features a near-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 at say a traffic light both quick and efficient. The belt driven motor is also smooth silent and free of annoying vibrations. And the max speed? 28mph.

For the Vado 3.0 we developed a custom Specialized U1-460 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. If you wish to see exactly how far you can go on a charge have a look at our Turbo Range Calculator for more exact estimates.

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 diagnosis.

To top off all of the innovative features we chose a worry-free spec that features Shimano 9-speed components hydraulic disc brakes racks front/rear lights and fenders.
