When it comes to e-bikes, you won't often find the words "stylish" & "fun" in their descriptionsâ€”that is until the Turbo Como 5.0 with 650b wheels burst onto the scene. With a comfortable geometry, a modern look, nimble 650b wheels with cushy 2.3" tires, & an additional boost from the fully integrated motor, this Turbo Como brings more fun to your bike ride than you ever could have imagined.
Beginning with the integrated Specialized 1.3 motor, it has a higher max torque, max watts, & better heat management & efficiency than its predecessors. It's the most advanced motor ever found on an urban e-bike. Of course, it still features a silent operating design with our Custom Rx Street Tune that takes the output & makes it the most usable for an urban environment. Think of it this way: The more power you put out, the more power the motor puts out, & this makes accelerations from a standstill both quick & efficient. The belt driven motor is also smooth, silent, & free of annoying vibrations.
For the Como 5.0, we developed a custom 604 Wh battery that seamlessly integrates into the frame, is lockable, & easily removable for simplified charging. In other words, there's plenty of juice to take you to & from work, a trip to the grocery store, or even to that new cafÃ© on the other side of the city. If you wish to see exactly how far you can go on a charge, have a look at our Turbo Range Calculator for more exact estimates.
The new wired Turbo Connect Display (TCD-w) is the best way to view data on your Turbo. It not only displays important ride metrics (speed, cadence, rider power, distance, battery level, time, etc.), it also allows you to connect the latest version of the Mission Control App for an enhanced Turbo experience. With our free app for iOS & Android phones, you easily customize motor parameters, control your range, record/upload rides, & perform basic system diagnosis.
The agile 650b wheels, meanwhile, have also been paired with cushy 2.3-inch tires, so they can roll over most cracks, bumps, & holes with ease to ensure that nothing stands in your way on your path to a good time. & to top off all of these innovative features, we chose a high-end spec that includes Shimano XT/SLX 11-speed components, four-piston hydraulic disc brakes, front/rear lights, racks, & fenders.
