Are Specialized eBikes worth the money?

Are Specialized eBikes worth the money?

Kenji Shimizu |

We think so! The Californian-designed Swiss-engineered bikes are world-leaders with tech and design and we’re happy to announce Crooze is now an official retailer of Specialized Turbo eBikes. Read on to find out why they’re worth the price tag.

Specialized eBikes: It's you, only faster

One of the most innovative eBike brands in the world, Specialized is driven by an obsessive commitment to deliver natural, nimble experiences for every rider.

“We wanted you to feel like you were on a “regular” bike, but somehow, you’d grown superhero legs. This core mission still hasn’t changed. It’s now, and forever will be, our promise for every Turbo E-Bike: It’s You, Only Faster.”

Since launching their first Turbo in 2009 their functional and technically advanced eBikes (Levo, Creo, and Valdo) have continually raised the bar for all bike manufacturers. Covering mountain, road, and commuter models, the Turbo line is a testament to Specialized’s commitment to “innovate or die” - engineering eBikes with superior integration, handling and connectivity.

Californian-Designed, Swiss-Engineered

Turbo refers to Specialized’s electric bike technology system. They shunned off-the-shelf motors and batteries instead developing their cutting edge tech in e-Bike-obsessed Cham, Switzerland, and then tuning the ride at their Morgan Hill, California headquarters. The result? Smooth, powerful, and silent pedal-assistance; maximum range, and superior connectivity solutions.

The Specialized eBike Turbo range – Learn How To Ride Again

From grinding gravel and epic commutes to boosting fitness and rowdy descents the Turbo range of mountain, road, and commuter “active” eBikes has every riding style and reason checked.

  • Turbo Creo: Road and gravel eBikes
  • Turbo Valdo and Turbo Como: Active / commuter eBikes
  • Turbo Levo and Turbo Kenevo: Mountain eBikes

eBikes in each Turbo category have 2 different levels of “rider performance amplification”

  • “2x You” - The SL (Super Lightweight) model. Lightest with longer range.
  • “4 x You” the regular model. Heavier with shorter range.

They also come in 3 weight categories:

  • S-Works (lightest)
  • Expert (mid range)
  • Comp (heaviest)

Let’s take a closer look at the Specialized Turbo range of mountain, road and commuter eBikes now available in-store at Crooze.

Turbo Levo SL: Mountain eBikes

Jump, shred and get rowdy on the trails. The Turbo Levo SL is the lightest electric mountain bike in its class thanks to its svelte-yet-stiff chassis, superlight motor, and cutting-edge power supply. You’ll get a lively ride with enough power to take the ascents.

Crooze currently stocks the following models from Specialized’s Turbo Levo SL line:

About Turbo Levo SL

The Turbo Levo SL is the lightest e-Mountain bike in its class thanks to its svelte-yet-stiff chassis, superlight motor, and cutting-edge power supply. End result? A veritable mountain biking unicorn that’s light and nimble, loves to get airborne, manoeuvres through technical terrain with ease… and gives you the power to ride more trails.

A lightweight SL 1.1 motor doubles your pedalling power with as much as 240 watts of silent and powerful assistance to your pedals.

Assist up to 20 mph / 32 km/h: The Turbo Levo SL chassis is constructed entirely from light-yet-strong FACT 11m carbon.

What’s the difference between Turbo Levo SL Comp and Turbo Levo SL Expert?

The key differences are weight and power. The Levo SL Comp will push you up a hill and is heavier than the Levo SL Expert. For the most authentic downhill option the Levo SL Expert will leave you wondering if you are even carrying the extra weight.

Turbo Creo SL: eBikes For Road and Gravel

The Turbo Creo line redefines e-road bike performance. These eBikes are ideal for riders tackling the demands of a rugged daily commute and epic missions grinding gravel roads and trails.

Crooze currently stocks the following models from Specialized’s Turbo Creo SL line:

About Turbo Creo SL

The Turbo Creo SL isn’t just the lightest e-bike of its kind—it’s, literally, pounds lighter than the competition. A light and lively frame and nimble geometry that creates stability at speed with a Future Shock 2.0 for control and confidence.

A lightweight SL 1.1 motor doubles your effort with as much as 240 watts of silent and powerful assistance to amplify your ride.

With up to 80 miles of range from the internal battery, the Creo SL eats up big miles and long days. The included range extender provides up to 40 additional miles of mountain-flattening power.

With the Future Shock 2.0, you'll feel a reduction in fatigue and an increase in speed, no matter the terrain.

What’s the difference between Turbo Creo SL Expert and S-Works Turbo Creo SL?

The key difference between the two is the weight. The Creo S-Works is lighter than the Creo Expert.

Turbo Vado: Active eBikes for city and commute

Lightweight city commuter eBikes leading the pack in urban mobility. Vado is ideal if you want an active, natural ride to boost your fitness levels and something light enough to carry up the stairs to work. Turbo Vado gives you the power to go further, faster, take on the streets in style and get fit while you’re at it.

These Vado models will be hitting the Crooze store floor early 2021!
