Good and some bad (warning about rear hub!) S5 size

Overall I enjoy the bike. I test road a bunch of other light e-bikes and full power bikes & with a few upgrades & a lot of tuning on the front fork the bike preforms well as any Enduro bike. Battery life & motor efficiency is better than all the competition, the noise from this SL is louder than any other e-bike. I am 6'4" 240 and ride pretty hard. One issue which I tried to fix was the very short 170 dropper post? Is this 2018 still who made that call? I tried to put a OneUp 210 post on but it was mm to big so could only put on a OneUp 180 post on, very disappointing as I notice the seat on the steep descents at my home Mt. Galbraith in Bellingham. The rear hub failed April 2024 with 4 1/2 months of use. Fanatik bike shop deals with this failure every month, my friend has this exact bike had his rear hub fail last summer. Put on DD casing tires ASAP.

I've been looking at buying

I've been looking at buying an eBike for a while, but wasn't sure I wanted to jump straight to the full eBike as I was worried about the weight and how they would ride on the trails. I was riding a full suspension enduro bike and I'm relatively fit, usually first to the top of most climbs, so I wanted a bike that still felt like an enduro/trail bike but just took the edge off the climbing, as some friends are on full eBikes and I was cooked after 5-6 big climbs. I have to say, the Kenevo SL is perfect for me! I'm now climbing more trails, going further, and feeling good afterwards, but it also descends like nothing I've ridden before. It's agile and just flows over anything you take it down, it feels amazing! So far, my longest ride is just over 20 miles and it still had 45% battery, really impressive. If you're relatively fit and coming straight from a non-eBike bike then I'd highly recommend the Kenevo SL, it's mint! It also look amazing, a real head turner, the design is perfect. I'd highly recommend this bike to anyone.

Bananas!

This bike is bananas… go get one! I’m coming from an Epic Evo which I still love. I have bad knees and the pain after rides pushed me towards the Ebike. I can now continue my long rides… and this thing is a beast on the downhill + jumps, just point and go! I get a great workout and can adjust the battery assist as needed. You can hear the motor, but you’ll get used to it. So much fun!

Best bike ever owned in my arsenal of toys!!

By far the funnest bike I have ever owned. Able to conquer more trails in same amount of time. Really curious how this bad ass machine would handle with a Ohlins Coil Rear Shock and Coil 38 Fork. Battery has just enough juice to make a 15 to 20 mile ride in 1.25 hours. Speed demon on this beast. Love it. Gonna buy another one next year and have TWO!!

So far, so good.

Beautiful bike. Like others, I wish the seat post was longer. I'm 5'6" with stubby legs on an S2 and the top of the main dropper post body is at least 3"-3.5" outside/above the frame collar. Upgrading the post will be first on my list. Mud is coming, so fenders will likely be soon too. I wasn't paying enough attention when buying it, but this model has a Fox 36 and not a 38. I know the 36 is lighter, but I wish they charged the extra 50 bucks and upped the fork on this model. Details on the wheels are minimal ("alloy"). Charging is fast. With winter coming and lights becoming necessary, since this is an E-bike, it would be nice if the website dedicated a section to showing compatible lights with the battery system. My wife's Bosch system has additional wires for hooking a light system up. I will keep digging. Overall I'm excited about my bike and enjoy the lighter package over the full power bikes. I find I'm mostly plowing on the full power bikes where this one I'm biking.

The best of both worlds!

The best of both worlds! I have a "full gas" e-bike (a Levo comp) and an analog bike, but I wanted something to ride with the super fit young guys (51 years young here) and still feel like I was riding a regular bike. The Kenevo SL did the trick, at 42lbs (I made a lot of upgrades) I commonly forgot I'm riding an eB and not my Enduro on the descents. Once the trail goes back up that little extra power of eco (and trail here and there, not used boost yet) is perfect to be able to keep pace with the strong kids. I'm a big guy and have had some big rides with the boys and still have yet to completely drain the battery without an extender, if you are looking for more trail/turbo modes you will probably want one. Bottom line if you don't mind doing a bit more work and want a bike that rides like the Enduro does, this is your ebike.

Amazing to ride with some dropper downfall

The bike/suspension itself is VERY good. I love having the flip chip and angle headset to change depending on trails I will be traveling to. However due to the motor raising the low shock design, dropper insertion depth is a MAJOR problem. In the end I think due to the motor, Specialized should have made a Stumpy EVO SL instead. Specialized also dropped the ball with the small rear fender, or they should have also sold a lower rear shock pivot cover, as mud gets tossed into the shock shelf. This is a VERY complicated linkage due to number of parts, and while it works well, this area MUST be kept very clean. I added a front fender to the rear lower chain stay to help with debris accumulation in that area.

I think I found the perfect bike!

I am the owner of an Enduro which I absolutely love. I got the itch for an ebike due to the hills around where I ride in Laguna Beach, CA. I picked up a Turbo Levo and had a blast. For sure a lot of fun but I was covering so much ground with such little uphill effort it was absurd. It helped my riding where I was hitting a lot of trails but it made a large area small if that makes sense. When they came out with the KSL I was amped. Take the best of both worlds and mesh them... booom. I got rid of the Levo and now what I would say is the perfect bike. I am an active guy in his 40's that still wants to feel like I am biking. I have no problem pedaling uphills, but this gives me a little bit of help so I'm not torched after a 1.5 hr ride. Yet the bike is light enough to throw around and it handles any rough terrain thrown at it. Also super fun on jumps. The only thing I would change is a tad bit more torque but my legs can make up that difference. Stoked.

Would Recommend?
Yes!
