Turbo Levo SL Comp Carbon

The Levo SL delivers unmatched ride quality and capability, amplified. For the trail rider who craves serpentine singletrack, sending it skyward, and lives for advancing your skills and fitness. Meet your new bike, the Levo SL. You’ll be blown away by it’s unmatched combination of flawless handling, capability, and “2 X You” amplification that gives you the Power to Ride More Trails. Compare it to anything out there, with a motor or without, and we know you’ll agree — Levo SL is THE ULTIMATE TRAIL BIKE.

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE RIDE — When everything works just right a bike disappears when you ride it. We stripped away the mass to keep the Levo SL lean and responsive. It’s tough enough to withstand heavy abuse, but light enough to nail big moves. Its dialed geometry, kinematics, and shock tuning leave nothing desired.

THE FRAME OF REFERENCE — Everything starts here. Lively, precise ride feel. Strategic carbon fiber layup provides super-responsive chassis stiffness. We tuned the entire chassis—front end, rear end, and the link that unifies them—as a single unit to minimize lateral flex under pedaling to harness every bit of pedal force.

GEOMETRY OF CONTROL — The cockpit centers you in the bike, optimizing traction and corner control. The low bottom bracket, slack headtube angle, and reduced fork offset keep things stable in the rough while giving you the freedom to destroy the turns. The head angle can be personalized to, 63, 64.25, and 65.5 degrees.

LESS IS MORE – The Levo SL is greyhound lean and telepathically responsive. Its curated component selection is light, yet capable—for true trail riding. Put it all together and you get the benefits of amplification along with benchmark handling.

MIXED WHEEL — A 29” front wheel ensures stability and surefooted performance in the most hectic terrain, while a 27.5” rear wheel allows for a compact chainstay and super responsive behavior. If you prefer the rolling and traction benefits of a 29” rear wheel, just flip the pivot link chip and mount the big wheel.

TURBO OPERATING SYSTEM — Our seamlessly-integrated operating system delivers unmatched performance across torque, range, ride feel, ride quality, power, reliability, and rider experience. It’s the invisible hand that enables you to do more, know more, go farther, feel stronger, and have more fun.

SPECIALIZED SL 1.2 MOTOR — The all new Specialized SL 1.2 motor is whisper quiet, boasts unmatched smoothness, delivers 43% more torque (50Nm), and 33% more power (320 Watts) than its predecessor. Resulting in “2x You” performance

XC speed with enduro geo and stability

You get XC speed with Enduro geo and stability; It's literally the best of both worlds! I ride mine mostly in eco and the battery life is exceptional! I usually end my ride at around 20 miles with 65% battery left. If you keep it in Trail or Turbo, you start cheating yourself on fitness and battery life but if you set the power up to really suit your workout needs, this bike is an excellent tool and a blast to ride! I've been riding for 20 years and approaching 50. While I'm no slouch on the trails (I'm still passing younger riders on my standard pedal bike), I've realized I can no longer rip up climbs on a standard pedal bike like I used to, It's more of a grind for me now, which has started to make the ride less enjoyable. I had to swallow my pride, but I'm glad I made the jump to an ebike. It's a super fun bike and it will still provide a great workout as long as you're disciplined with the settings.

Almost perfect!

Many great features including smooth suspension, seamless motor, great motor controller and screen, very good fit and finish, excellent travel, and decent geometry (stop steepening the seatpost angle - enough already!). Some areas that need improvement: mullet setup is not great. I put a 29 on the back and it is much better! Battery capacity is low (why increase power and not the battery?), motor noisier than Trek and Fazua, new app lacks features old app had like custom tunes that you can save, screen is great but too small (Trek’s is bigger).

Awesome

I have been on the fence for a few years about e-bikes. The monster size of the full power e-bike and the fact that they’re just ugly gave me no desire to own one. However there are some rides I really enjoy but rarely get to do as they are some distance away - that have some serious vertical climbing that riding my normal trails just doesn’t keep me strong enough to not be wiped out at the top. Levo SL- I can ride my normal trails in eco mode and the steep trails in trail mode, work almost as hard, and be in a state that allows me energy to slay the downhill. The handling of this bike makes me feel like I am on a full on DH bike! It’s SO much fun! This bike exceeds my expectations on handling- I have owned over 30 mountain bikes in the last 14 years- most have left me dissatisfied in some way or another- The LEVO SL is awesome! 58 year old adrenaline junky

Best version of the Levo SL! I love the adjustable BB height and steering angles, plus the rear wheel size options.

The new updated motor feels seamless when peddling. Power assist modes are tunable and can be changed instantly with the handlebar remote. Steering, balance and overall handling is perfect with either wheel configuration. The TCU and handlebar remote is superior versus prior model years. Rear suspension performance is excellent. The Rhythm fork actually responds better with a 29 rear wheel. The fork damper is upgradeable to a Grip2. This bike can be re-configured for cross county riding (I don't jump or ride aggressively down hill). I set the chip on high, installed a 29 rear wheel, and the installed the +1 headset cup. Things to know: Optimal pedaling cadence is 70-90 rpms. Installing a 29er rear wheel does change standover height significantly. The 29er wheel change also requires a trip to the bike store to have the motor re-calibrated for the 100mm wheel circumference difference. Specialized offered excellent customer service and support before and after purchase.
