The Turbo Levo FSR Short Travel 29 neatly places cutting-edge technology at a price that's sure to raise eyebrows. We gave it a short travel, 120mm design that places a focus on fully harnessing the speed of 29-inch wheels rather than big hits, so you'll never feel like you're running too much bike.
With the Turbo Levo FSR, first and foremost, you get all of the hallmarks that our mountain bikes are known for—a roomy top tube 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 an M5 aluminum frame and efficient and powerful Turbo technology, integrating a battery, and a new Specialized 1.3 motor that delivers 15% more power than the previous version. This also delivers a significant increase in efficiency, while our exclusive Rx Trail Tune at the motor smoothly and quietly brings this additional power to the pedals, making climbing the steepest of trails nearly effortless. Of course, the output is fully adjustable to conserve energy, as well, while the custom motor is also the only one on the market that features instant pedal engagement, so you get immediate power the moment you need it, and consistent torque throughout the entire cadence range.
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, it's strategically placed for optimal weight distribution. You'll also find our Mission Control App for full control of the Turbo technology, an integrated Trail Display with all of the ride metrics you need, a Trail Remote that lets your easily switch between modes without removing your hands from the bars, and a power meter that shows exactly how much power you're putting out vs. the motor.
This version features a 120mm RockShox Reba RL fork up front (compared to the 150mm of travel found on the longer travel iterations of the Levo), SRAM Level T brakes, and a SRAM GX/NX one-by groupset controlling shift and drivetrain duties.
- The frame was constructed from our M5 Premium Aluminum, which is equal parts, strong, lightweight, and incredibly responsive. The design of the frame itself revolves around our Trail 6Fattie Geometry that includes all of our trail hallmarks, like a low-slung bottom bracket, roomy top tube, and ultra-short chainstays. Cable routing is all internal, including that of the Command Post IR, while the battery is fully integrated in the down tube and the motor is secured by a forged brace mount.
- The custom Specialized 1.3 Rx Trail-tuned motor is built for the Levo and features a 15% power increase and a significant efficiency increase compared to the Specialized 1.2 motor. This successfully places it at the top of e-bike motor technology. 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, ANT+/Bluetooth® module, and Mission Control App connectivity. It also houses 460Wh of trail-taming juice, and it's neatly integrated into the down tube.
