2022 Turbo Creo SL Expert EVO

What is it about gravel that's so appealing? Is it the break from hectic city streets and cars? Is it the audible crunch of rocks beneath your tires? Or maybe it's just the feeling of adventure? Whatever it is, the Turbo Creo SL EVO is here to assist you further into the forest, down the gravel road, or on your next adventure. It features the same motor, battery, and frame as its road-oriented cousin, but takes advantage of tire clearance and adds in some adventure-ready components to take you wherever your heart desires. It's you, only faster.

The Turbo Creo SL Expert EVO features out Fact 11r carbon chassis. Yes, that's the same one on the S-Works model, and you'll also get the new Future Shock 2.0. For the spec, we included a 1x SRAM Rival eTap AXS build and an 11-50t cassette to take on shifting and braking duties, while Roval C 38 Disc carbon wheels get wrapped in 38mm Pathfinder Pro 2Bliss Ready tires to keep you rolling worry-free and super fast, no matter the terrain. And filling out the build are our Adventure Gear bars with 12 degrees of flare, a Future Stem Pro, an X-Fusion 50mm Manic Dropper seatpost, and our fan-favorite Body Geometry Power Expert saddle.

I’ve never had this much fun!

I picked up the 2022 Creo SL Expert Evo for my 57th birthday and after recovering from a bad crash the year prior. I wasn’t looking for a new bike, but you know how it goes: Life’s too short - buy the dang bike! The Creo is so much fun! Even with the Evo’s wider tires, I ride it on the road and can keep up with my faster teammates, yet I still get an incredible workout and have dropped a few pounds since riding it. I’ve heard others mention the motor noise, but I think of it being a powerful machine. Plus, if I need assistance, it’s the most beautiful sound I’ve ever heard. 🤣 I love this bike, hope to normalize riding one, and know without a doubt it is going to keep me riding well into my 60s! #winning

Absolutely amazing machine.

The Creo SL Evo is my second Specialized. Worth every penny! It’s made riding western NC mountains fun again. More time in the saddle means better fitness. Sure it’s not cheap but after you’ve ridden the bike you’ll understand the price.

Turbo Creo SL Expert EVO Review

I LOVE this bike, feels like riding with the wind the entire ride! Assist is infinitely adjustable, assist level buttons while riding are located near your thumbs, perfect place. The built in computer tracks everything you need, my only issue the phone app stopped syncing with my bike, haven't had time to troubleshoot. I have a size S and added a Topeak 13.4 x 6.7 x 16.1 rear rack and Topeak MTX Trunk Bag DXP Bicycle Trunk Bag with drop down pannier, they fit perfectly. I now grocery shop by bike, can go on all day adventures with gear and food, this bike has improved my life in so many ways! I get about 45-50 miles per charge on medium assist and flat terrain, riding 20-25 MPH, more on Eco. It is also light for an EVO, I can carry it up stairs when necessary. I was a road cyclist for many years and love that these tires can go off road, but the bike is still fast. Great exercise without the pain for anyone who loves to cycle but age is beginning to compromise speed and distance.

Opportunity Taken

When health issues limit what bike rides you do, why not take the opportunity to do rides you want. My Creo SL EVO is my opportunity to explore adventurous rides long thought gone.

I have two!

I now have two . One in colorado and one at home. Battery removal was a pain so got a second. No regrets. I own a cervelo and an orbea but this is the best. Comfortable ride and you can ride forever without running out of energy (you or the bike) . Im sure over the years they will get better and better.

Awesome ride

I picked up this bike for fun and couldn't be happier. Rides and feels like a a normal road bike, even with the motor off. I can ride in eco all day. when I am ready to get home, put it in Turbo and its like being a kid again. Same workout but just you faster. One of the best ebike experiences if you want to feel like you are still on a bicycle.

I was So happy when

I was So happy when I was able to purchase this bike on the specialized web site and get fast delivery. The bike shop assembled it and it should be called the “Equalizer”. I can ride with my husband again at his speed. Headwind doesn’t matter any more. I love the bike.
