Sexy. Clean. Smart. Integrated. You want it all. Not a bike with a gas tank tacked on—a truly innovative electric bike with the soul of a commuter and the heart of a sports car. The Turbo. You like to think all those people are looking at you, breezing down the street on your way to work, but you know deep down, it’s the bike. It turns heads whenever it rolls by with its speed, agility and downright sexiness. Turbo. It’s you, only faster.
WHAT Incredibly burly yet sleek and racy alloy frame with Performance Geometry for high-speed riding with tapered headtube, fully-integrated downtube battery, internal routing, thru-axle dropouts and full fender/rack mounts.
WHY Strengthens and stiffens the frame in the critical areas to handle the added weight of a battery and motor, and the rigors of riding at up to 45 kph, while still steering and braking nimbly and safely.
HOW Custom tube shapes, such as the super-oversized downtube and fork are stiff enough to handle the large forces placed on the front end during steering and braking, while shaped seat and chainstays and a 12mm through-axle beef up stiffness and strength around the motor and rear brake. A 15mm through-axle in the front combined with a 1-1/2” headtube further bolster stiffness at the front.
Custom Li-Ion Battery
WHAT Custom Turbo Li-Ion battery.
WHY To provide maximum power for quicker acceleration and higher torque, with improved battery life of 504 Wh and quick charging time of 3.5hrs.
HOW Our engineers found the finest quality Li Ion cells with the best “C-rates”—this means they allow for maximum power to be pulled out to the motor. They optimized the battery management system specifically to our motor, rather than relying on a generic system like other brands. Finally, the cells have been carefully placed to facilitate the quickest cooling.
Direct Drive Hub Motor
WHAT Turbo Direct Drive rear hub motor.
WHY To maximize efficiency in power transfer from motor to forward motion, while minimizing wear on drivetrain.
HOW By putting the motor directly inside the rear hub we assure that all the power generated goes directly into forward motion—nothing is lost or wasted in the process. BB-mounted systems, for instance, drive from the chainrings, meaning potential loss through the rings and chain, while also increasing wear on these components.
JOYSTICK INTERFACE SYSTEM
WHAT One-handed operating control unit for all bike functions.
WHY While resting your hand in the regular grip position, you're able to operate your support level, read and change your cyclocomputer information, control regenerative braking, and shift gears.
HOW By combining the visual display, the Joystick, the sensor for regenerative braking, and the shift lever into one clean, compact and fully integrated interface unit.
NEW SADDLE REAR LIGHT
WHAT LED rear light fully integrated underneath the saddle.
WHY To provide a clean look and reduce exposed components on the bike. The new 3 LED technology provides the brightest light beam on the market while complying with European legal regulations.
HOW Using the rear bumper of the saddle and modifying it to hide a replaceable, super-bright rear light that is sourced from the main bike battery.
