SPECIALIZED Turbo Vado 5.0 2019
It's what's inside that counts and the same rings true with the Turbo Vado 5.0. Each component from the motor to the battery works in perfect harmony to provide you with a fully integrated pedal-assist-system that's the perfect accomplice to your hectic schedule. And with its modern aesthetic and feel this Vado has truly raised the bar for e-bike design. It's you only faster.
Beginning with the integrated Specialized 1.2 S motor the Vado proves itself as the ultimate city bike. It features a silently operating design with our Custom Rx Street tune that takes the output and makes it the most usable for the 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 both quick and efficient. The belt driven motor is also smooth silent and free of annoying vibrations. Perfect.
For the Vado 5.0 we developed a custom 604Wh battery the Specialized U1-604 that seamlessly integrates into the frame is lockable and is easily removable for simplified charging. With this battery the 6.0 will deliver a pedal-assisted boost up to 50 miles in Economy mode 35 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 15mph there's plenty of juice to take you to and from work make a trip to the grocery store or to even head over to that new cafÃ© on the other side of town.
We also developed a custom 2.2-inch computer with the German powerhouse BLOKS. With this smart computer you're able to view your battery level and toggle various ride metrics such as speed distance and time. You can also peruse these screens via the custom handlebar remote without ever removing your hands from the bars.
To top off all of these innovative features we chose a high-end spec so you'll find Shimano XT/SLX 11-speed components Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes racks and fenders. It's ready to take your riding to the next level.
