It's what's inside those counts, and it's true with the Turbo Vado 5.0. Each component, from the motor to the battery, provides you with a fully integrated pedal assist system that's the perfect accomplice to your hectic schedule. And with its modern aesthetic and feel, this Vado has truly raised the bar for e-bike design. It's you, only faster.
Beginning with the integrated Specialized 1.2 S motor, the Vado proves itself as the ultimate city bike. It's a custom working Rx Street design that makes the most of the urban environment. Think of it this way: The more power you put out, the more power the engine puts out, and that makes it quicker and more efficient. The belt driven motor is therefore smooth, silent, and free of annoying vibrations. Perfect.
For the Vado 5.0, we have developed a custom 604Wh battery, the Specialized U1-604, that seamlessly integrates into the frame, is lockable, and easily removable for charging. With this battery, the 6.0 wants to deliver a pedal assisted boost up to 50 miles in Economy mode, 35 miles in Sport mode, and 25 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 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, make a trip to the grocery store, or even head over to the new cafe on the other side of town.
So we developed a custom 2.2-inch smart computer that lets you look at your battery level and toggle various ride metrics such as speed, distance, and time. You can therefore peruse these screens via the bargain bar without ever removing your hands from the bars.
Shimano XT / SLX 11-speed components, Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes, racks, and fenders. To top off all of these innovative features, we recommend a high-end spec. It's ready to take your riding to the next level.
