2021 Turbo Creo SL Comp Carbon EVO

What is it about gravel that's so appealing? Is it the break from hectic city streets and cars? Is it the audible crunch of rocks beneath your tires? Or maybe it's just the feeling of adventure? Whatever it is, the Turbo Creo SL EVO is here to assist you further into the forest, down the gravel road, or on your next adventure. It features the same motor, battery, and frame as its road-oriented cousin, but takes advantage of tire clearance and adds in some adventure-ready components to take you wherever your heart desires. It's you, only faster.

The Turbo Creo SL Comp Carbon EVO features out Fact 11r carbon chassis. Yes, that's the same one on the S-Works model, and you'll also get a Future Shock 2.0. For the spec, we included a 1x Shimano GRX group to take on shifting and braking duties, while DT R470 Boost™ wheels get wrapped in wide 38mm Pathfinder Pro tires to keep you rolling fast and free on either pavement or dirt. And for the saddle, you'll find that our fan-favorite Body Geometry Power Sport provides plenty of comfort, while the X-Fusion Manic Dropper Post comes in handy when the descents get a little hairy.

MARVELLOUS

This bike is the best thing that ever happened to me! It combines all worlds into one. Able to drive gravel, safe feeling on the street thanks to the ability to have fatter tires with profile, and a light weight engine with a long lasting battery, which doesn't remove the natural feel of driving a sports bike - or simply letting you drive a sports bike as you can turn the engine off! Mid 40s, working way too much, anything but fit, needing to get fitter. I have gotten a mountainbike, followed by a race bike, and I also got an e-citybike during the Covid crisis. None of them cut it. The first 2 due to stamina issues and no motivation to build it up as it was too hard - making it less fun to ride long distances, and the last one because it just wasn't... fun. Thanks Specialized. Thought I'd never buy from you because you have this reputation of being overrated, but you clearly won me over with this gem of a bike. Keep it up!

Converted to Specialized, haven't looked back since.

High performance gravel bike. For an electric bike, its very light weight. Motor has the right level of power and range on the battery. I can for sure get 65 miles. I haven't gone further, but that's because I'm on the gravel and climbing hills. I've seen lots of converted Creo Turbos into MTB/Gravel cross overs. Would be very interesting to but a tire on with a bit more capacity and do more adventure riding with it. The vibration absorption is amazing. Can ride for hours. A number of occasions I've done the first 10 miles no power, the bike is fine without it as well. Want to get back in home for dinner, put on the power and cruise home at 25. Hard to want to ride the other bikes.

Best bike I ever bought!

I will be 69 before 2022 is over with and I wanted a bike I could ride till I die and also use for commuting to work as long as that lasts. Save money on Gas and it is good for your health. I am still healthy, and I still ride my Cannondale Road Bike to keep my legs strong. If I dialed back from Turbo mode to ECO or Sport Mode it would also keep my legs strong but when I am on the Specialized, I just want Turbo Mode all the time. This Specialized bike is the best money I ever spent on any bike, Period! I am thinking of buying another one just for off road use.

Game changer

Bought to get off roads/away from traffic. Not only has it achieved this, but the distance you can cover offroad has opened up so much more. Found fantastic places I just would never have discovered. The only negative thing I can say about this bike is my other (road) bike still hangs in the garage untouched. Specialized have built a fantastic bike which will put a smile on your face everytime - and turn heads as you accelerate past! Fabulous - thank you!!

Bought two Creo SL

Being road bike riders we bought two of these, one for me and one for my spouse. Now like never before we can ride together. I no longer have to look back to see where she might be because with the pedal assist she can dial in any speed and easily keep up with me. Particularily on the hills where she cruises by me and shouts "turbo baby" as she passes. So more than ever it's going to keep us riding together farther, longer and later in life (we are in our 60's) As far as the bike it's great, high quality and the pedal assists works very well, charges easily and fast, components are decent and really everything about the bike is nice. Bought online sight unseen which was a little scary due to the high price of these but worked out really well. Really no need for a drop post for casual riding, we traded ours in for a standard post and upgrade on one of the seats.

First Specialized bike and the

First Specialized bike and the second new bike I ever purchased. As my first eBike, super impressed by the power, quality of the build and bike features and functionality. Purchased online and my local bike shop was great. A cyclist since I was a kid, this bike has helped to reignite my passion for biking. It really makes you faster and better. Great charging, fast and app is cool. Highly recommend.

I’m thrilled with this bike.

I’m thrilled with this bike. Much as with a purchase of an eMtn bike three years ago rekindled my joy of riding off-road, my new Turbo Creo has pulled me back onto the paved roads less traveled. The Creo is a superbly designed machine. At 72 years of age, I’m like a kid again enjoying the freedom and fitness of cycling
