It's what's inside that counts, and the same rings true with the Turbo Vado 5.0. Each component, from the motor to the battery, works in harmony to provide you with a fully integrated, pedal-assist-system that's the perfect accomplice to your hectic schedule. And with its modern aesthetic and feel, this Vado has raised the bar for e-bike design.

Beginning with a completely redesigned and integrated Specialized 1.2 S motor, the Vado proves itself as the ultimate city bike. The Rx Street Tune takes the powerful output and makes it 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 5.0, we developed custom Specialized U1-604 battery that seamlessly integrates into the frame, is lockable, and easily removable for simplified charging. With this battery, the Turbo Vado will deliver a pedal-assisted boost up to 50 miles in Economy mode, 35 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 28mph, 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-for-Vado 2.2-inch computer with the German powerhouse, BLOKS. With this touchscreen smart computer, you’re able to connect, via Bluetooth®, to our Turbo Vado Mission Control App (available later this year) for full control over your Vado. This app allows you to tune the motor to your personal preferences, it eliminates range anxiety through the Smart Control function, and it offers the rider a wide range of features, like including navigation, tracking, diagnostics, and ride history. You can also peruse through these screens via the custom handlebar remote, without ever removing your hand from the bars.

To top off all of the innovative features, we chose a high-end spec for the Turbo Vado 5.0. Featuring Shimano XT/SLX 11-speed components, four-piston hydraulic disc brakes, racks, and fenders, the Vado 5.0 is ready to take on the town.

  • A custom 2.2-inch BLOKS. digital TFT display enables you to monitor all of your ride data in real time. It also connects with the Turbo Vado Mission Control App (available later this year) via Bluetooth®, so you have full control over the tune, modes, range, and much more.
  • The Vado’s Specialized 1.2 S motor is fully integrated with the frame and is custom-tuned for city riding. This means that 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.
  • Custom Specialized U1-604 battery is 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.
