If speed is at the top of your wish list, there's no better tool than the Turbo Levo Hardtail 29. It takes the fun, efficiency, and speedy characteristics of our 29er hardtails and adds our Turbo technology to crank-up the speed along every part of the trail.
First and foremost, it has all of the speed and nimble handling that our hardtail trail bikes are known for—an easy fit, ultra-short chainstays for nimble handling, and a low bottom bracket that makes the bike feel glued to the trail. Then comes the efficient and powerful Turbo technology, along with an integrating a battery and motor. This year, however, you'll see some updated software that increases the motor's efficiency with the M5 Premium Aluminum frame. The exclusive, Rx trail-tuned motor smoothly and quietly brings this additional power to the pedals to make climbing the steepest of trails nearly effortless. The output, meanwhile, is fully adjustable in order to conserve energy. Lastly, our new custom Specialized 1.2 motor features instant pedal engagement, so you get immediate power the moment you need it, and consistent torque throughout the entire cadence range This makes for the most efficient use of power on the trail, and more importantly, it creates the feel of a capable trail bike.
At the battery, you'll find that it's fully integrated with the down tube and easily removable for quick charging or swaps. It has a lengthy lifespan for hitting long, out of the way trails and, along with the motor, is strategically placed for optimal weight distribution. The Mission Control app, meanwhile, gives you full control of the Turbo technology, while an integrated Trail Display shows all of the ride metrics you need. We also included a Trail Remote that lets you easily switch between modes without removing your hands from the handlebars, plus a power meter that shows exactly how much power you're putting out vs. the motor.
This version also has a build kit focused on the intersection of durability and performance, with a 120mm RockShox Recon RL 29 fork (size-specific) up front, Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, and a one-by Deore groupset from that controls shift and drivetrain duties.
- M5 Premium Aluminum construction is paired with our Trail 29 Geometry and a hardtail design to support a ride that provides slack, confident handling, maximum efficiency, and tons of speed. The frame also features an integrated battery mount at the down tube for fast and easy battery removal, plus a forged and braced motor mount at bottom bracket. This keeps the aesthetic streamlined and the weight distribution perfectly balanced. Lastly, you'll find fully enclosed internal cable routing for a clean look and even cleaner cables.
- The Specialized 1.2 is custom built for the Levo Hardtail and features our exclusive Rx Trail Tune that gives you the power to explore new trails. It has many other features that no other e-bike can touch, like instant engagement, fantastic heat management, a double freewheel design that disengages the gear box when you hit top speed, and silent, smooth, and consistent output—even at max power.
- The Specialized M1-460 battery features an integrated Trail Display and ANT+/Bluetooth® module with Mission Control App connectivity. It houses 460Wh of trail-taming juice, and is neatly integrated into the down tube.
