    Kenevo SL 2

    The Power to Ride More Trails

    Best All Mountain Ride, Amplified

    Best All Mountain Ride

    Our Enduro set the bar for all mountain geometry; the Kenevo SL 2 raises it with personalization of 6-way adjustability, while Ride Dynamics and a scrutinized spec make the bike disappear beneath you.

    Absurd Capability

    When you ride the Specialized Ride Dynamics holistically-developed chassis, kinematics, and shock tune, you’ll laugh in the face of the biggest terrain.

    Super Natural Amplification

    The SL 1.2 system delivers 33% more power, 43% more torque and the most natural feeling amplification in the world, along with unmatched range to weight and personalization of the Specialized App.

    The Weight is Over

    So Light You’ll Forget it’s Electric

    Slay more of the biggest trails like never before with the Kenevo SL 2. It elevates the category-defining ride of our award-winning Enduro with more composure, speed, and agility thanks to the holistic Ride Dynamics-developed chassis, kinematics, and damper tuning. Then, that best ride is amplified by the boosted power and torque of the super light weight and leading efficiency of our Turbo SL 1.2 system.

    All-New Specialized SL 1.2 Motor

    Go Deep, Go Light, Go Stealth

    Riding far with a lively feel requires light weight and epic range so you can ride more trails, without sacrificing the nimble ride. The SL 1.2 is the most efficient e-bike system in the world, unlocking maximum range-to-weight. It delivers 33% more power (320 Watts) than its predecessor with a supernatural feel, while 43% more torque (50Nm) lets you dispatch elevator shaft climbs, knock out a long ride in short ride time, and carry more speed into features that demand it. Sure, the SL 1.2 system makes a big statement, but you won’t hear it because it’s also the quietest e-bike system in the world.

    The Weight is Over

    Developed Together to Ride as One

    The Kenevo SL 2 sets this new bar of trail performance through an integrated development approach. Our trail-obsessed Turbo MTB team lives, eats, sleeps, and dreams singletrack. They created every part of the bike—chassis, geometry, kinematics, suspension tuning, motor, battery, and controller—to work flawlessly with every other part, and with you, to deliver a ride beyond belief.

    Frame of Reference

    The full monocoque FACT 11m carbon fiber frame is the backbone of the Kenevo SL 2 and is a marvel of composite construction, fully optimized for handling and weight savings.

    Center of Power

    The SL 1.2 motor and 320Wh battery are integrated and centralized in the chassis to improve handling responsiveness by decreasing the moment of inertia while powering up to 5 hours of ride support.

    Tuned Stiffness

    We tuned the entire chassis - front end, rear end, and the link between them - as a single unit. This minimizes lateral and torsional deflection and delivers telepathic handling.

    Geometry of Control

    The Kenevo SL 2 sets the benchmark for all-mountain e-MTB handling, adding six-way adjustability to the acclaimed geometry of our Enduro. Its generous cockpit gives you room to move on the bike, optimizing traction and corner control. A steep seat tube angle centers you over the bike, while the slack head tube angle, reduced fork offset, 29” wheels, and a generous wheelbase keep things composed, planted, and unbelievably capable in the chunkiest terrain.

    Adjustable Geometry

    Regardless of where—or how—you ride, the Kenevo SL 2 can be tuned to handle exactly how you like it. Six distinct settings allow you to hone trail manners to suit your style and terrain. Head angle can be set at 62.5, 63.5, or 64.5-degrees. Bottom bracket height can be fine-tuned up or down by 6mm.

    Specialized Ride Dynamics

    Engineered to Disappear

    Our Ride Dynamics team are core riders who work on the trail and in our off-road innovation centers with access to unmatched engineering and testing resources. They’re obsessively focused on creating the best ride by holistically developing the chassis, kinematics, leverage rates, spring curves, damping performance, and tunability so it all works together to achieve a singular, elevated ride quality on the trail. The Kenevo SL 2 is a testament to their capabilities. With 170mm of plush, responsive, super-capable travel, the Kenevo SL 2 dispatches whatever you point it at, from lunch laps, to backcountry missions, to rowdy bike park laps.

    Axle Path/Kinematics

    A slight rearward axle path performs superbly on square-edged hits, allowing the wheel to move back and out of the way of obstacles instead of hanging up on them. This axle path also yields anti-squat properties early in the travel, enhancing pedaling efficiency.

    Leverage Rate

    The Kenevo SL 2’s leverage rate delivers small-bump sensitivity, mid-stroke support, and compliant but controlled full travel when stomping the big hits.

    Ride Dynamics Shock Tune

    In order to work in harmony with the extra power available, account for the higher speeds, and capitalize fully on the potential of the Six Bar kinematics, our engineers burned the midnight oil to develop custom valving and spring curves specific to the Kenevo SL 2 for out-of-the-box performance.

    Check Out the Big Brain On KSL

    MasterMind Turbo Control Unit

    The MasterMind TCU is the brain of the Kenevo SL 2 and it's in a class of its own. Displaying all relevant info about your ride, it allows real-time tuning of support levels, enables over-the-air updates so that your bike gets better over time, and seamlessly integrates with the Specialized App for advanced tuning, on-trail diagnostics, and more.
