Turbo Creo SL Comp E5

Delivery Icon

We deliver! Just say when and how.

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 E5 Comp features an E5 Premium Aluminum frame and a Future Shock 1.5. 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.

Great bike, design flaw

I love my Creo E5 but it seems to have a design flaw. The chain of pops off the chainring when in the smallest cassette cog, sometimes even when I’m not pedaling. The mechanic at the local Specialize bike shop says this is common with this bike. He recommended going from a 42 tooth chainring to a 48. It cost me about $300 to correct this design error. Mike

This bike is FANTASTIC!

I have been a serious cyclist for 52 years. However, I now have nerve damage in my leg & can no longer stand on the pedals or climb hills much over 7%. I wanted something that did not look like an e-bike. After much research, I chose the Specialized Turbo Creo SL Comp E5. This thing is amazing! It is very easy to pedal once moving. There is no resistance from the motor at all when it is off. The only time it feels heavy is when moving it around to park it (mine is 35 lbs with bottle and pack). I like to push myself when on the bike. Therefore, I set the motor assist to compensate for the extra 13 pounds it weighs over my steel road bike. I first tried the motor=10 & ease=25. It was too easy for me. I now use motor=10 & ease=20. As a result, I am getting INSANE total range out of the battery (no battery extender). I get 430-500 mi range. So far, I have ridden it 13 times (428 mi), topped it off in the charger twice, & have never gotten below 44% charge on the battery.

Best bike for rehab - wish I did it sooner!

I messed up my knee a few years back and it just wasn't getting better.  I could ride a Peloton for 15 mins and everything would feel fine - 2 days later I could barely walk.  Thought I'd have to give up cycling for good. Found some quad exercises that built me back enough to ride my old bike again. Once a week, increasing slowly from 6mi to 15.  Sore for a week, but happy to be out again.  Riding time was 90 mins, lunch in-between.  Was getting better, but still limited to flat parts as the hills near me were just too steep. After a few tests, I did my old 40mi ride and came back with 18% battery - assist on the entire time.  The next week, 30%, turning it off occasionally. Each week, turning if off more and more. 50%... 60%, and yesterday got back with 79%, only having used it for really steep or long hills.  My total moving time yesterday was 3h 20 mins (lunch in the middle) and it's just getting better and better.  This bike is amazing and has me cycling again!

Changed my life

I'm 71, have been riding a Lightspeed for 30 years. Time has caught up with me, and my rides were getting harder and shorter. I bought this bike a month ago and can hardly stop riding. Back to many of my jarder favorite rides. I just love this bike.

Game changer

I'm in my early 70's and have been an avid bike rider for nearly 40 years. 3K miles per year. The past year or two, I've really slowed down, to the point where my rides are shorter and I avoid some of my favorite hilly rides. I took the jump to this bike, and it has really changed my life. The joy of riding is back, I'm doing longer rides again and loving it. It took a little while to get over the idea that I was getting some assist, but I' so happy that I made the jump. I just went out for a ride on my old Light Speed, and it was torture again, so I guess I'll donate it to a younger rider. I can't recommend this bike strongly enough.

Amazing Ride Minor Tweaks

Wanted to rate 4.5 but half stars are not possible. Perfect for making my 32 mile round trip commute more manageable and way faster than my standard road bike. Love that it's pedal assist and not just a throttle, and has the look and feel of a road bike, I was not interested in a giant utility style ebike. Did not receive 5 stars because the pedal assist level button is on the top tube, but an after market remote can put buttons on the handlebars. After installing that remote I would stress it is a must have and really should be part of the stock build, the change in ride is night and day. On downhills or long straight aways I wish I had one more gear to really speed along. Overall an amazing bike I would highly recommend.

great bike

Love this bike. Its heavy but you have a motor. I did a 25 mile ride with power on and motor off. The bike rolled smooth just like my carbon road bike. The gearing is great so even on smaller hills I easily got over without power. Even if my battery died I feel I could do every hill that I can do on my carbon bike because of the low gearing. when you hit the big hills on a ride I just use power. I did 65 miles with 3000 feet of climbing on my first 3 rides to test the battery. I ran out off power as I pulled into yard. I am 240 pounds so I feel getting 65 miles is great and this is before I knew I could turn motor off so I was on eco mode on all the flat sections and sport and turbo on hills. I tuned mission control settings. I have overall setting in eco. Fine tune settings are eco support 25, power 25, sport is 50%-50% and turbo is 100%100%.

Game changer

Absolute game changer. I was looking for a bike that would get me back out after nearly 2 years. Having Arthur Itus in my knees makes it difficult to climb step hills/rises, but the motor makes it so much easier. Over the 15mph assistance you do the work, so you still get a workout when you increase your speed. The ride is smooth with the future shock.

Superb bike (until it was stolen)

There is nothing not to like about this bike. I am 83 and was looking for an e-bike that I could easily lift onto my bike rack; I believe I was told this bike weighs 33 pounds and it was an easy lift for me. The bike has great power assist when needed. I normally cruise at the first setting about 15 mph and managed to get it up to 35 mph when riding down a steep hill from a reservoir near my home. Now that it has been stolen, I am shopping for a replacement. Chuck

Astounding experience

When you graduate from your conventional Specialized road bike (ALR-4 for me) to the Creo (SL for me) you are transformed into a 29yr old (now 74yr for me) endurance speedster. You know when your moving along your favorite roads at 11-14mph and the young boys and girls pass you at 16-18mph like your standing still? WELL, NOT NO MORE FOLKS! Riding at my normal tempo 80rpm I am averaging 17.9mph on 15-40 mile rides. The only indication I have is I get home so much sooner and the two dogs on my ride can’t even get close to me. I thought the computer was off? Holy cow. Range anxiety? I have more worry with my cell phone battery and my EV battery than I do with the Creo. On flat with rolling hills I average about 1 to 1-1/2% per mile usage. I even took my charger and extension cord in a pannier for first 10 rides. Not no more! The battery charge lasts longer if you are 65mph or more. I use Turbo to cross roads and highways at 2-way stop signs or very windy climbs. NEVER GOING BACK!!

5000 mile update

I have had the Turbo Creo SL EB 5 Comp for about 8 months and have 5000 mikes of great riding. I’m 72 years old and ride 60- 72 miles regularly. My longest ride has been 75 miles with 2500 feet of climbing. My longest climbing ride was 65 miles with 3700 feet of climbing. I have not ran out of battery yet. I have been riding with 18 to 19.5 mph average speed on all my rides. I keep up with 40 year olds. I still get sn excellent work out and have lost close to 15 pounds riding this bike. I am planning on a Century ride in the next month and with Mission Control I have complete confidence that I will have battery to spare. I highly recommend this bike. The Specialized tag line of “You only Faster” is completely true.

Awesome Machine - More Miles More Smiles

I bought this bike essentially so that I could get my commute to work going again after our premises moved from 15Km to 50Km from home, the hilly 2h30 ride unassisted getting to work after riding full tilt and pouring perspiration just wasn't feasible, I needed a Z2/Z3 ride under 2hours, this has given me that and after just one ride from work I can already feel the relief of stress (especially the traffic stress). On top of that I did a 97Km race this weekend and ended with plenty battery, a gravel ride a day ago which included some fairly rough sections it handled these like a dream (I put the sawtooth tyres on), sure it's not an MTB but I was wowed with it's capability. Since starting to ride I can honestly say this has been one of my best investments in both my physical and mental wellbeing. More Miles More Smiles!!!

Amazing

Picked up the bike yesterday. Dealer was excellent in setting up the bike with the specs from my previous bike fit. My first ride was today. Took it out for a nice test run. 46 miles and 800 feet of climbing with a 4-5 mph headwind returning. It only used 43% battery, I have the range extender on it. My avg speed was 18.5mph and top speed was 30.5. It was a fun ride. I mainly stayed in Eco mode with about 5 miles of Sprt mode and 1/2 mile of Turbo. At one point going into the wind for about 3 miles I was going 25-27 mph in Sport mode and at the end of that segment I noticed that I was pulling six other riders. The bike rides very smooth and handles effortlessly. I’m 71 years old and this bike is exiting. Highly recommend.
