If we were to sum up the Women's Turbo Levo Hardtail Comp 6Fattie in three words, they'd be flotation, power, and fun. That's because it takes the crazy traction that comes with our 6Fattie wheel system and combines it with a geometry that rides like a trail bike should and our Turbo technology's smile-inspiring power to ride more trails. It's really something pretty special.
To start, this bike lives by the philosophy that more tire volume results in more speed. It might be a claim that sounds flipped on its head, but one ride and it'll have you shouting this sentiment from the rooftops. Our 6Fattie Wheel System puts out more traction, more floatation, and better handling without sacrificing anything to efficiency on climbs. And with the philosophy of the design out of the way, it came time to solidify its place as a proper trail machine.
Of course, it also has all of the speed and nimble handling that our women's hardtail trail bikes are known for—a women's-specific geometry, 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 has a durable build kit, with a 120mm (size-specific) RockShox Reba RL fork up front, Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, an SLX one-by groupset controlling shift and drivetrain duties, and Women's Body Geometry touchpoints to ensure comfort over the long haul.
