Turbo Levo SL Comp


2020 Turbo Levo SL Comp

The Turbo Levo SL is a new, lightweight breed of eMTB that harnesses the quick and lively ride of our Stumpjumper...and adds just enough power to introduce a whole new dimension of kick ass. Thanks to a clever component selection, the Turbo Levo SL Comp brings all of that rad down to an equally-rad price point.

It’s You, Just Going Faster and Farther.

The Turbo Levo SL is effectively a Stumpjumper that lets you embark on ridiculously long adventures with no fear of bonking and helps you snag three laps of your favorite trail instead of just one. Looking for a ton of power and range? Check out our Turbo Levo and Kenevo models. Want a bike, on the other hand, that simply feels like you—a faster you, with the power to ride more trails, kind of you? That's Turbo Levo SL.

Tune it to Your Style.

By connecting with our Mission Control App, you can tune the SL 1.1 motor to your riding style, record rides, and monitor the battery. The motor even has a built-in power meter that transmits to any ANT+ head unit. Don't want to connect? No worries—the simple Turbo Connect Unit (TCU) on the top tube gives you all the control you need to just climb on and ride all day.

• Lightweight, alloy Stumpjumper-inspired frame is pure ride quality and control.

• Ultra-smooth and lightweight SL 1.1 motor doubles your pedaling power.

• 150mm of suspension front and rear, courtesy of FOX's 34 fork and DPS shock.

I am in good shape, ride 2 to 3 times per week, the best I think I am going to be with out dedicating more time (or decreasing my age by a decade or 2). But I cannot keep up with my fellow riders. This bike allows me to keep up. I just keep it in lowest assist. Still get a great work out (as long as I resist selecting a higher assist mode). Bike does not feel heavy when riding. Feels like a regular mountain bike but gives me better legs.... I am a fan. As a 28 year veteran mountain biker, felt wrong to go "e". but I love it!! if you are on the fence, do it. you won't regret it.



Great decision

I hadn’t ridden a bike in 10 years. I’m approaching 50 and am working on losing 30lbs - so - not in the best of shape. I really wanted to get back into MTB but the idea of climbing big hills and still having energy to descend was a concern. This bike alleviated all of that. I’m able to do the climbs without hopping off, I’m still getting a great workout, and I have plenty left in the tank to be fully engaged and enjoy the descents. I’ve never loved riding more.



Perfect for my wife

Bought this so wife could keep up. We tried the Turbo Levo and Turbo Levo SL. IMO the Turbo Levo is overpowered. Good for if you are not athletic at all. The SL is for occasional riders who are in moderate shape. With the SL my wife can keep up with me and then some. She know enjoys mountain biking with me now that she's not completely gassed trying to keep up with me.

What I need right now but not perfect

I rode a large carbon version that a local shop had built up. As a 5’6 female, I can tell you that it did not feel at all big. Still, I’m a 5’6 female who has ridden a Medium for 25 years. So, I ordered a medium in alloy (carbon was not available before new models were released). It feels VERY small and tight, and also feels very high, even in the “low” position. The S sizing and Geo varies among modes-I wish knew this prior to purchase. This is trail geo through and through, but it is not good for any type of serious enduro or downhill Pursuits. I wish it were slacker. The alloy version IMO is not nimble, and it rides downhill like a tank. Fun, but even at full speed with the intention to huck it is a monster to move around. This is a solid trail bike and undoubtedly excels in that genre (which is why I bought it). I’ll be on a Status for shuttle runs or if I feel like being in pain when climbing. I’d probably love the S-Works version…….;)

Tons of Fun - Super happy!

Live doorsteps to trails and bought this to upgrade from a hardtail, and to be nicer to my aging body! Love the 2x assist and can get a great ride and good workout in. I keep it in eco mode 70% of the time, but super nice to have a "bit more" when terrain points uphill, in between trails, or I just want some help. This is a great bike if you want to stay somewhat close to the analogs, but you won't catch the full power e-bikes. I mostly ride with fit experienced bikers, so this helps me keep up with them. The bike is great on my terrain (NWA/Bentonville, AR) and the extra push to helps me get out more often, go an extra lap or take a longer trail. Weight, motor and specd to hit the trails and have tons of fun!

All the reviews are spot on! I truly enjoy mtbing more than ever because i can finally keep up with my friends who are younger and with more advanced skills. The TUNE feature for the ride is excellent, im still experimenting with settings to my liking. The bike is planted when hitting the downhill sections due to its weight and i feel more confident.

Everything I Hoped For

I've been riding my Stumpy for years, and absolutely love it. However, there are days when I'm tired from other activities, or I've ridden too many days in a row, and the riding gets tough. The Turbo Levo SL turned out to be just the ticket for tired legs: you can ride it just fine with the electrics off, but turning on Eco mode (or even Trail) really flattens the hills. Also, favorite loops that I generally could only do once or twice before running out of gas are now easily repeatable. The only issue is that now I have two bikes that I love - how to choose on any given day?

Awesome bike!

I love this bike and bought it several months ago. I'm a female, 5'-2 and got the rocket red in small. The color is beautiful. An x-small was not available at the time. I would highly recommend purchasing the extra battery pack. I can now keep up with my husband when we go mountain biking. This bike has been a game changer for me. I get a great workout, and when my husband wants to go longer I'm up for it. Highly recommend!

Updated Review of SL

I reviewed the Levo SL base model size small last year and lamented that it was a(5'3"). Well, since then I switched the back wheel to a 27.5 and flip chip to high position. That is the perfect solution for short riders. It now rides like a dream and my past problems with too high bike/imbalance in quick dismount situations are over! I have fallen in love with my SL all over again and am riding as much as possible. I still have hope that Specialized acknowledges us Short People and eventually presents either a full 27.5 or a mullet version. But in the meantime, try this modification if you're short and experiencing challenges with the height of a full 29er MTB.

Old Knees, New bike :)

Turning 55 I was struggling to find motivation and energy for my typical 55km rides that I find time for. Distances have been steadily reducing as knee pain increased. Bought an SL and already enjoyed several 50km+ rides, that I've not managed for a few years. Yes, I'm not getting the workouts that I was before, but the joy of riding is back with vengeance. Now sitting at my desk, looking at routes, and wondering if my range extender will be good for 100km, before the clocks change. Loving life again, on my SL alloy.
