Get all of the pedal-assist features you desire at a price that lets you keep your daily cappuccino ritual with the Women's Turbo Vado 2.0. Featuring many of the same characteristics as its more expensive siblings, albeit with a little less 'roar' to its motor, the Women's Turbo Vado 2.0 is firmly rooted as the ultimate transportation tool for everything from grocery runs to commutes.
Beginning with a completely redesigned and integrated motor, the Vado proves itself as the ultimate city bike with its new Specialized 1.2 motor. It features a silent design with our Custom Rx Street tune that takes the output and makes it the 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, the Specialized U1-460, that seamlessly integrates into the frame, is lockable, and easily removable for simplified charging. With this battery, the Turbo Vado 2.0 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 20mph, there's plenty of juice to take you to and from work, a trip to the grocery store, or even to that new café on the other side of the city.
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 mectrics 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 the innovative features, we chose a wallet-friendly build for the Turbo Vado 2.0. Featuring Shimano 9-speed components and hydraulic disc brakes, it's the perfect tool for your busy lifestyle.
- A custom 2.2-inch BLOKS. digital LCD display enables you to monitor all of your ride data in real time.
- The Vado’s Specialized 1.2 motor is fully integrated with the frame, and it's also been custom-tuned for city riding, and it intuitively reacts to the force of your pedaling—so the harder you pedal, the more power it delivers. And with an internal belt drive design, it does this without added vibration for the smoothest and most silent ride possible.
- We made the custom 460 Wh battery to be fully integrated with the frame, removable for easy charging, and lockable for added security. It communicates with the display and has multiple modes to maximize the overall efficiency and range.
