SPECIALIZED Turbo Vado 2.0 NB 2019
Get all of the pedal-assist features you desire at a price that lets you keep your daily cappuccino ritual with the Vado 2.0. Featuring many of the same characteristics as its more expensive siblings albeit with a little less "roar" to its motor the Vado 2.0 is firmly rooted as the ultimate transportation tool for everything from grocery runs to commutes. Remember: Busy lives call for faster bikes.
Beginning with a completely redesigned and integrated motor the Vado proves itself as the ultimate city bike. The Rx Street Tune takes the 250-watt output and makes it most usable for the urban environment - reacting to the amount of force you apply to the pedals. 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 both quick and efficient. The belt driven motor is also smooth silent and free of annoying vibrations. Perfect.
For the Vado 2.0 we developed a custom 460Wh battery that seamlessly integrates into the frame is lockable and easily removable for simplified charging. With this battery the Turbo Vado will deliver a pedal-assisted boost up to 93 miles in Economy mode 40 miles in Sport mode and 25 miles in Turbo mode. These estimates of course have some assumptions - the total rider and bike weight is 220 pounds the terrain is flat with some inclines and there is either no wind or a light breeze. In other words with a top speed of 28mph there's plenty of juice to take you to and from work a trip to the grocery store or even to that new cafÃ© on the other side of the city.
We also developed a custom-for-Vado 2.2-inch computer with the German powerhouse BLOKS. With this touchscreen smart computer youâ€™re able to connect via BluetoothÂ® to our Turbo Vado Mission Control App for full control over your Vado. This app allows you to tune the motor to your personal preferences it eliminates range anxiety through the Smart Control function and it offers the rider a wide range of features like including navigation tracking diagnostics and ride history. You can also peruse through these screens via the custom handlebar remote without ever removing your hand from the bars.
To top off all of these innovative features we chose a wallet-friendly build for the Turbo Vado 2.0. It features a range of Shimano 9-speed components and powerful hydraulic disc brakes that stop on a dime so the Vado 2.0 is the perfect tool for your busy lifestyle.
