Smarter Rides Await
For over 40 years, we've considered ourselves cyclists first and a business second, so we always set out to design bikes that we can't wait to ride. In this case, this meant designing a pedal-assist bike that rides like a bicycle first, with the added benefit of Turbo power. It's easier said than done, but with a fully integrated system, we were able to combine this a clean, elegant aesthetic that every day riders expect. The Turbo Vado family is the next generation in Specialized Turbo technology, and is designed for urban style riding, commuting, touring, and fitness. Vado takes your ride experience to the next level with a new integrated battery, display, and controls, which allows for a simplified riding experience and an increased range.
Life moves fast, so it’s only logical that you’d want to navigate it at a pace that matches. The Turbo Vado is all about helping you fit all the elements of your lifestyle—the work, the play, and family time—into your hectic day. They say life is balance—it’s time to find it with the Turbo Vado.
It’s what’s inside that counts, and the same rings true with the Turbo Vado. Each component, from motor to 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, the Vado has raised the bar in e-bike design.
You're in Control
Meet the Turbo Vado’s motor. It’s eerily silent, and with its pedal-assisted, custom-tuned power, it multiplies your pedaling input by up to 320%. To run, it uses custom software that senses the torque you’re applying in each pedal stroke, and an algorithm amplifies the power that you’re putting in. The more power that you apply, the more power it puts out. It even allows you to custom tune it, so you can ride in your sweet spot for an intuitive feel and ride quality. It’s all up to you.
The Power is in Your Hands
Like the motor, it’s customizable and fully integrated, however, it’s also easily removable, so you can charge it from wherever you want. While you’re riding, you can control the range, so you’ll never be left to pedal home unassisted.
Turbo Vado Mission Control App
A Touch Away
The battery's set-up with Bluetooth® communication functionality in order to control the tuning from our Turbo Vado Mission Control smartphone app. Now, you’re able to demonstrate total control over every facet of the battery and motor, as well as the ability to upload routes to get turn-by-turn navigation.
Take it Away, Turbo Vado
Life is to be enjoyed, especially when it’s coming at you at warp speed. Things pile up, the “To do” list keeps growing and growing, and let’s not forget you’ve got to fit a workout in there somewhere, right? The Turbo Vado is ready and waiting whenever you need to get things done efficiently, fast, and in total comfort. You’ve got a busy life, it’s time you had a faster bike.
