Women's Turbo Vado 3.0
If you can characterize your life as on-the-go, busy, or not having enough time, we made a bike for you—the Women's Turbo Vado 3.0. It's made to accommodate busy lives that are always in movement, which is why we took our proven Turbo pedal-assist technology and accelerated it into the future.
Beginning with a completely redesigned and integrated motor, the Vado proves itself as the ultimate city bike with its new Specialized 1.2 motor. It features a silent design with our Custom Rx Street tune that takes the output and makes it the most usable for the urban environment—reacting to the amount of force you apply to the pedals. 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 3.0, we developed a custom Specialized U1-460 battery that seamlessly integrates into the frame, is lockable, and easily removable for simplified charging. With this battery, the Turbo Vado will deliver a pedal-assisted boost up to 71 miles in Economy mode, 30 miles in Sport mode, and 19 miles in Turbo mode. These estimates, of course, have some assumptions—the total rider and bike weight is 220 pounds, the terrain is flat with some inclines, and there is either no wind or a light breeze. In other words, with a top speed of 28mph, there's plenty of juice to take you to and from work, a trip to the grocery store, or even to that new café on the other side of the city.
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 the innovative features, we chose a worry-free spec on the Turbo Vado 3.0. Featuring Shimano 10-speed components, hydraulic disc brakes, racks, and fenders, it gets you wherever you need to go, faster.
