What's the one thing that comes to mind when you think about riding a Turbo? We'll help you if you haven't ridden one yet: A smile! It's the one thing that you can't help but have on your face when you're riding a Turbo, and the Vado 1.0 is no exception.
Beginning with the integrated Specialized 1.2E motor, the Vado proves itself as the ultimate city bike. It features a silently operating design with our Custom Rx Street tune that takes the output and makes it the most usable for the urban environment. Think of it this way: The more power you put out, the more power the motor puts out, and this makes accelerations from a standstill both quick and efficient. The belt driven motor is also smooth, silent, and free of annoying vibrations. Perfect.
For the Vado 1.0, we developed a custom Specialized U1-400 battery that seamlessly integrates into the frame, is lockable, and is easily removable for simplified charging. In other words, there's plenty of juice to take you to and from work, make a trip to the grocery store, or to even head over to that new café on the other side of town.
We also developed a custom 2.2-inch smart computer that lets you view your battery level and toggle various ride metrics such as speed, distance, and time. You can also peruse these screens via the custom handlebar remote without ever removing your hands from the bars.
To top off all of these innovative features, we chose a wallet-friendly build for the Turbo Vado 1.0, so it features a range of Shimano 8-speed components and powerful hydraulic disc brakes that stop on a dime.
- The Vado features a lightweight alloy frame that’s been designed with our Fitness/Transportation Geometry.
- The Vado’s Specialized 1.2E motor is fully integrated with the frame, and it's also been custom-tuned for city riding. It intuitively reacts to the force of your pedaling, so the harder you pedal, the more power it delivers. And with an internal belt drive design, it does this without added vibration for the smoothest and most silent ride possible.
- We made the custom 400 Wh battery to be fully integrated with the frame, removable for easy charging, and lockable for added security. It communicates with the display and has multiple modes to maximize the overall efficiency and range.
