It's a busy world out there, & the sad thing is, it's getting faster all of the time. That's why we recommend faster bikes for busy lives, like the Turbo Vado 4.0 Step-Through. It takes our award-winning & exclusive technology & tailors it to a package that's designed for getting you around your day-to-day life quicker than ever before. It's you, only faster.
Beginning with the integrated Specialized 1.2 motor, the Turbo Vado proves itself as the ultimate city bike. The 1.2 motor 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 Vado 4.0, we developed a custom Specialized U1-500 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.
To top off all of the innovative features, we chose a worry-free spec that features Shimano 10-speed components, hydraulic disc brakes, racks, front/rear lights, & fenders.
The Turbo Vado frame features an alloy step-through frame that's pretty light & super easy to get on or off of. The Turbo Vadoâ€™s Specialized 1.2 motor has been fully integrated with the frame, & it's been custom-tuned for city riding. We designed it to intuitively react to the force of your pedaling, so the harder you pedal, the more power it delivers. & with an internal belt drive design, it does this without added vibration for the smoothest & most silent ride possible. We made the custom 500 Wh battery to be fully integrated with the frame, removable for easy charging, & lockable for added security. It communicates with the display & has multiple modes to maximize the overall efficiency & range. For range estimates based upon a variety of variables, please refer to our Turbo Range Calculator.
