2021 Turbo Creo SL Comp Carbon

We have a long history of developing the world's highest performing road bikes. Tarmac, Venge, Roubaix, Allez, Diverge—each one dominates their respective category, featuring the best technologies in the industry. And while that's a tough palmarès to follow, the Turbo Creo SL redefines e-road bike performance. It's lightweight, smooth, capable, and lively—all with the power to flatten mountains, laugh at headwinds, and go farther than you ever thought possible. It's you, only faster.

The Turbo Creo SL Comp Carbon 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 28mm Turbo Pro tires to keep you rolling worry-free. And for the saddle, you'll find that our fan-favorite Body Geometry Power Sport provides plenty of comfort.

Its Incredible

I swore I would never be found riding an e bike. After having ridden bike patrol at work, and riding thrice weekly after retiring, it was getting to the point that it just became a workout instead of fun as I approached 70 years of age. Several friends own Creo's and after watching some of them ride away from me, I decided to give it a try. One test ride at the dealer convinced me this was the real deal. The only thing I can compare it to is riding on a nice, flat stretch of road and suddenly getting a 15 MPH tailwind. You still get a nice workout but without exhausting yourself. The Creo put the fun back into my riding again.

Premium Bike

I am 54. The bike is very solid and I don't regret getting this bike over a non-electric bike at all. I appreciate this bike the most on truly windy days. I've been riding for about 11 years now and having this bike at my older age keeps me moving really well. I like the specialized shock absorption a lot as I feel less tired from the ride tension and more just plain tired from the muscle exertion which is the way it should be. I had a dual-speed bike previously and I appreciate this single a bit better. I don't feel the need to go back to dual as I've not run into problems on uphill or itching for that truly bigger gear.

Great bike

I am 67 and have some health problems. This bike is great. I can ride with groups that are now faster than I am, and I can ride longer, harder and up a lot of elevation that I used to be able to do, and now need a little assistance. I get the same workout. The bike feels like a road bike should. With the extra battery in the water bottle carrier ( and a double bottle carrier in the front) I don't run out of juice or water. Tires take up to 38mm so can do gravel without a second bike. I am extremely impressed with this bike.

A fun ride and helps

A fun ride and helps me get out every day! I am 6 feet tall and bought the XL on sale from the website as it was a great deal. I was a bit concerned but I think it is the right size for me and has a more comfortable position for long rides. I bought it for a fast commute to work and also for help on long weekend rides. I have put many miles on it over the summer. Very nice on the mountain roads and rock solid on descents. When I use low assist I get the same workout as riding my lighter bike up the hills, very smooth.

Fantastic bike!

I absolutely love this bike. After having knee surgery last year and a complicated recovery, I finally decided to get an e-bike so I could get back outdoors and this bike has been perfect! I can now ride the hills in our neighborhood, keep up with my cycling group and have been on two cycling vacations (Canada and Italy) with this bike. (Note - in Italy, I rented the same bike). The front suspension helps smooth out rough roads. I look forward to riding this bike for years and years. It's easy to operate the 3 modes and I'm still learning the app but I like it so much, I'm hoping to buy a Tero mountain bike next year so I can hit the trails and run errands.

This is a really well

This is a really well thought out and designed bike. A proper road bike that rolls well and gives a good ride without the assistance whilst providing a decent boost on climbs and into wind. The gearing needs a bit of getting used to after a standard set up but that is a fairly quick adjustment. The battery has not yet been exhausted on a ride and it seems to meet Specialized's claims. I was surprised that a 56cm frame on my Roubaix transposed into a size L on this bike but it was spot on and I find it very comfortable on long rides. The latest Future Shock system with variable adjustment is a good improvement and I adjusted to the Power saddle very quickly, thereby aborting the pre-ride intention to change it. Reasons for going electric vary but if you want a real road bike for proper rides that provides a boost as you need it, this bike will do it.

Turbo creo sl comp carbon

I’ve ridden it about 3000 miles this summer. I ride in eco mode on flats, downhills and moderate climbs; sport or turbo on steep climbs or strong headwinds. My range on a charge is about 60 miles and 5000 ft of vertical. Using external power meter, I find that my output is about 20 watts less than it was on my s-works tarmac sl4, while my times for a 20 mile hill ride are about what they were 12 years ago (I’m 72 years old). In other words, it’s turned the clock back about 12 years. I have only two complaints: the internal power meter is optimistic by 20-30 watts and the motor noise is annoying. My wife’s turbo como is much quieter. The biggest benefit is that I no longer dread the steep climbs or strong headwinds

Bike delivers all that was

Bike delivers all that was promised. Echo mode has allowed me to keep up with younger, faster riders in my group. Makes riding a pleasure again.

As a 58 year old

As a 58 year old road bike rider this is a game changer. I’ve put 300 miles on my Creo in the first two weeks. What I love about this E bike is I still get a great workout but at a faster pace. I am 6’2” and weight 230 pounds and purchased the XL. I be been averaging 40 miles in just over two hours and still have over 60% left on my battery. I ride mostly in eco mode.
