We're all for pumping out hot laps hour-after-hour, but climbing back to the top, or burying your pride and getting a shuttle ride, tends to get old. Either your legs start bubbling with lactic acid like a marshmallow in a campfire, or you're forced to miss the "perfect run" when it's your turn to drive. We get it, and that's why we've developed the Turbo Kenevo Comp. Best-in-class technology gives it the power to ride more trails, all while having the modern geometry and travel found you need for a big day out.

With the Turbo Kenevo, you get all of the hallmarks that our trail bikes are known for—a roomy top tube for an easy fit and better control, ultra-short chainstays for nimble handling, and a low bottom bracket that makes the bike feel glued to the trail. But then you top it all off with 180 millimetres of front and rear travel, and you get a bike that's ready to send it off of anything.

Then comes an M5 aluminium frame and our hyper-efficient and powerful Specialized e-MTB technology and a new Specialized 1.2E motor. This also receives our exclusive Rx Trail Tune that smoothly and quietly brings additional power to the pedals, making climbing the steepest of trails nearly effortless. Of course, the output is fully adjustable to conserve energy, as well, while the custom motor is also the only one on the market that features instant pedal engagement and consistent torque throughout the entire cadence range.

You'll also find our Mission Control App for full control of the Turbo technology, an integrated Trail Display with all of the ride metrics you need, a Trail Remote that lets you easily switch between modes without removing your hands from the bars, and a power metre that shows exactly how much power you're putting out vs. the motor.

The build of the Turbo Kenevo Comp is the perfect blend of performance, durability, and value. It features a RockShox Yari RC fork and FOX Van RC Coil rear shock (each with 180mm of travel), a mix of Shimano XT and SLX drivetrain components, and wide alloy rims.

Key Features:
  • With 180mm of travel, the frame is constructed from our M5 Premium aluminium that's equal parts, strong, lightweight, and incredibly responsive. The design of the frame, itself, revolves around our Trail Geometry that includes all of our trail hallmarks, like a low-slung bottom bracket, roomy top tube, and ultra-short chainstays. Cable routing is all internal, including that of the X-Fusion Manic dropper post, while the battery is fully integrated into the down tube and the motor is secured by a forged brace mount.
  • The custom Specialized 1.2E Rx Trail-tuned motor is built for the Kenevo and features significant efficiency increase, compared to the Specialized 1.1 motor—delivering plenty of juice for a day out on the trails. It has many other features that no other e-bike can touch, like instant engagement, fantastic heat management, a double freewheel design that disengages the gearbox when you hit top speed, and silent, smooth, and consistent output—even at max power.
  • The Specialized M1-460 battery features an integrated Trail Display and ANT+/Bluetooth® module with Mission Control App connectivity. It houses 460Wh of trail-taming juice, is easily removable, and it's neatly integrated into the down tube.

Occasionally, without notice, manufacturers change product design and/or specifications.

Turbo Kenevo

I did a lot of searching before I decided which full sus e mtb bike to purchase, but I've not been disappointed with this! It's taken some getting used to with the added weight of the motor and battery, but I am loving it! Definitely would recommend.

2019 Kenevo
by Anonymous user on 03/10/2019

Bike is fantastic and everything i could have wished for. Climbs effortlessly and although you can't lock out the suspension like the Levo it really isn't noticeable at all when climbing. Hit the downhills and it just flies. Confidently hitting big jumps i wouldn't attempt previously on a standard full sus bike. Service by Tredz was excellent although my kit didn't contain the multi-tool or pedal spanner like the description stated it would. Something to note also is that it doesn't come with a bottle cage. It must be a side entry cage which are more expensive so factor that in as well. My main concern was it only came with a 460WHr battery. But fear not, it actually lasts longer than mates 506WHr battery on his Levo. Tyres were in my opinion slightly over inflated on delivery and lowering them increased corner grip.
