2020 Turbo Levo Expert Carbon

Here's where the gloves come off—the Turbo Levo Expert Carbon sheds serious weight with its advanced carbon front triangle and brings a high level of technical capability with a FOX 36 fork and DPS shock.

ROWDY DESCENTS. STEEP CLIMBS? HELL. YES.

The Turbo Levo is a fully-fledged progressive trail bike. We've lengthened the reach, kept the chainstays nice and short, and maintained a low center of gravity. Next, we slackened the head angle for more confident descents and steepened the seat angle to improve climbing efficiency. It's dialed.

MORE POWER, MORE RANGE

The Levo's Specialized 2.1 motor amplifies your pedaling input by a mind blowing 410%. Our M2 batteries provides you with plenty of range. What's more, our Mission Control App can handle battery management automatically, ensuring your battery will last as long as you need it to. More power. More miles per ride. More awesome.

• Carbon/M5 alloy Sidearm frame shed weight and adds control.

• Smoothest, most powerful motor on the market.

• FOX 36 Perfomance forkand FLOAT DPS shock with 150mm of travel.

2020 Turbo Levo Expert Carbon - 2years owned

I bought mine new 3/2020. I'm amazed at the quality, dealer support, and Specialized's warranty. Motor failed early, BOOM, new one installed, no questions. Handling is impeccable, sure footed, and easy to place. Power is beyond any other bike I've seen. The bike is Quiet; only tire noise. It's a stunningly great bike. I love this thing!

All smiles

My first mountain bike was a ca. 1990 Stumpjumer 26"" that is still alive (my daughters trail bike now) so it's interesting to have the lineage preserved. This is an extraordinary bike and is an amazing amount of fun to ride. I'm about 6o and this bike lets me do things that I simply would not have the oomph to pull off. It's equally good at rocky terrain and flowing trails. The power boost helps be get cleanly over rocks and roots on uphill ascents that would otherwise have stopped me cold. I now realize how much psychology is involved — this bike gives me confidence to push ahead. I have been through lots of bikes of various styles over the years and this bike always puts a smile on my face (like my 1965 Schwinn stingray). The bike is extremely well thought out, light, clean and simple. I really like having the built-in battery display integrated into the frame and the power adjustments are easy. Wow, I ride it every day I can.

Turbo Levo

I recently purchased the turbo Levo. Prior to, I have owned multiple stump jumpers, the last being a 17 FSR carbon expert. I love the specialized product. Overall the turbo levo is a great bike. I love its stable and planted feel. I ride in the lowest assist mode because I still want a workout, but you can fly up the trails if you kick it into the turbo mode. I can now climb anything and get up things that use to give me troubles. The only down fall I feel are the breaks on down hill descent. I feel like I over ride them. The other down fall is the cut out at 20MPH on the downhill decants and then your pedaling a pig. I cant keep up with my buddies anymore so I'm a little bummed about this part. 30mph would be the perfect cut out in my opinion. I bought this bike the day the Turbo Levo SL came out and am curious if that would of been the way to go. To late at this point. I feel like this is the future of the MTN bike world. Especially for people that don't ride a lot or are not in the best shape.

I would recommend this bike without reservation.

I've raced motocross 50 years ago and mountain bikes 35 years ago. I've owned two Hai Bikes and know a great machine when I ride one. My Levo is more powerful, runs quieter and longer and handles very well. Congratulations to the entire Specialized design team for an outstanding machine. I love this bike.
