Introducing the Turbo Vado SL 4.0 Step-Through EQ by Specialized. This impressive e-bike combines lightweight design and powerful performance to give you a ride that's perfect for both urban commutes and adventurous excursions.

This slim and stylish piece of kit weighs 40% less than a standard electric bike. But don't be fooled by its weight. The Vado SL is a powerhouse, with an advanced Turbo SL technology at its heart. This top-of-the-range system offers unrivalled battery life, integrated anti-theft functions, precise training tips, and a comprehensive bike computer.

Step on to the Vado SL and instantly notice the superb ride comfort. Thanks to its specialised body positioning and handling, your rides will be smoother, faster and more confident. And, with powerful hydraulic disc brakes and superior tires, your speed, maneuverability and safety are guaranteed.

Not just a bike for tackling roads, the lightness of the Vado SL also makes it an ideal city companion. From bustling public transport to wall-mounted storage, everything becomes simpler and more convenient. And, with a powerful and reliable SRAM 11-speed shifting system, you're bound to keep your pace, no matter how long the journey.

On top of these exceptional features, the Vado SL offers:

  • An impressively long-range, fully integrated Specialized 320Wh downtube battery. This can give you up to 80 miles (130 km) or 6-hours of riding time on eco mode.
  • An optional Range Extender compatibility, stretching the battery life up to 120 miles (200 km) or 9-hours on eco mode.
  • A custom lightweight motor, offering peak 240W / 35Nm performance and assistance up to 28mph.
  • Turbo SL rack compatibility, perfect for bags and panniers, and DRYTECH fenders to shield from dirt and spray.
  • Premium E5 Aluminum frame, ensuring strength and durability.
  • Clean internal cable routing, with fender/rack mounts and reflective graphics for added safety.
  • Step-through frame design for easy mounting and dismounting.
  • Bright and clear front and rear lighting units for excellent visibility.
  • Durable, lightweight alloy wheels and robust, fast-rolling Nimbus II Sport Reflect 700 tires with BlackBelt flat protection.

Please note, the speed limit at which the motor ceases to function may depend on local regulations, and this may affect the range of the bike. More information can be provided upon request.
