Turbo Vado SL

Introducing Vado SL - It’s You, Only Faster

There’s no other e-bike out there with ride quality, range, and power like this, at a weight that’s light enough to carry. Cruise to 28 mph, for up to 80 miles. And at 40% lighter than the average e-bike, it’s built to bring with you: up the stairs, down the hall, across town, and everywhere you go.

Reliability

Tested across multiple continents in all weather conditions, Vado SL is designed to get you where you need to go. It delivers the defining combination of weight, power, range, and ride quality, giving you the confidence to ride more often and to places that you never imagined you would.

Portable Range Extender

Vado SL delivers the security of an integrated 320Wh internal battery for up to 80 miles of range with the flexibility of an optional Range Extender for up to 40 miles of additional pedaling assistance. The Range Extender is fully removable, compact, and easy to charge wherever you are.

Performance

California designed and Swiss-engineered, the new Specialized SL 1.1 system represents the very best in superlight e-bike performance. Ultralight and quiet, the Specialized SL 1.1 system doubles your effort with a smooth power delivery. No unnatural power curve, lurching, or motor jumps. It delivers up to 240 watts of power that are in sync with your cadence all the way to 28mph. In the event that you outpace the motor’s assistance, there’s no awkward cutoff or drag, just smooth riding for miles.

Confidence

Vado SL is built to deliver comfort without compromising capability. High-volume tires soak up imperfections, handle well on both pavement and dirt, and deliver stability at all speeds. Future Shock technology on 5.0 models brings ultralight suspension to your ride, reducing the impact of rough roads and terrain by nearly 40% compared to bikes with bulkier, heavier front suspension forks. All Vado SL models are equipped standard with hydraulic disc brakes for maximum stopping power, simple 1x shifting for easy operation, integrated front and rear lights to see and be seen, high visibility reflective decals and tires, and Body Geometry saddles and grips.

The e-bike is replacing the car for many short-distance trips, unhindered by traffic, the search for parking, and costly monthly payments. Recent studies have also found that e-bike riders get more exercise on average than conventional riders, due to the fact that e-bike riders are riding more often and for longer distances. And there has never been a better time to invest in our health, our community, and the future of our planet.
