Specilaized Turbo Vado review

Get all of the pedal-assist features you desire at a price that lets you keep your daily cappuccino ritual with the Vado 2.0. Featuring many of the same characteristics as its more expensive siblings, albeit with a little less "roar" to its motor, the Vado 2.0 is firmly rooted as the ultimate transportation tool for everything from grocery runs to commutes. Remember: Busy lives call for faster bikes.

Beginning with a completely redesigned and integrated motor, the Vado proves itself as the ultimate city bike. The Rx Street Tune takes the 250-watt output and makes it most usable for the urban environment—reacting to the amount of force you apply to the pedals. Think of it this way: The more power you put out, the more power the motor puts out, and this makes accelerations from a standstill both quick and efficient. The belt driven motor is also smooth, silent, and free of annoying vibrations. Perfect.

For the Vado 2.0, we developed a custom 460Wh battery that seamlessly integrates into the frame, is lockable, and easily removable for simplified charging. With this battery, the Turbo Vado will deliver a pedal-assisted boost up to 93 miles in Economy mode, 40 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 either 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, a trip to the grocery store, or even to that new café on the other side of the city.

We also developed a custom-for-Vado 2.2-inch computer with the German powerhouse, BLOKS. You can peruse through these screens via the custom handlebar remote, without ever removing your hand from the bars.

To top off all of these innovative features, we chose a wallet-friendly build for the Turbo Vado 2.0. It features a range of Shimano 9-speed components and powerful hydraulic disc brakes that stop on a dime, so the Vado 2.0 is the perfect tool for your busy lifestyle.

A custom 2.2-inch BLOKS. digital LCD display enables you to monitor all of your ride data in real time. It also connects with the Turbo Vado Mission Control App via Bluetooth®, so you have full control over the tune, modes, range, and much more.

The Vado’s motor is fully integrated with the frame and features a 250-watt output. It's also been custom-tuned for city riding, and it intuitively reacts to the force of your pedalling—so the harder you pedal, the more power it delivers. And with an internal belt drive design, it does this without added vibration for the smoothest and most silent ride possible.

We made the custom 460 Wh battery to be fully integrated with the frame, removable for easy charging, and lockable for added security. It communicates with the display and has multiple modes to maximize the overall efficiency and range.

Great e-bike and a stunning paint job
by Anonymous user on 26/09/2018

I bought this bike to try and give me a bit more longevity when out and about. Its great, the motor is quiet and it easily provides assistance when required. The frame paint work is excellent and the satin metallic colour is certainly a head turner. There are one or two down points I should raise: Don't expect the mission control or any App to work with this bike, it doesn't, apparently there is an app in development but currently the Vado and Como series of bikes are not supported even though the bike does have Bluetooth. The Tyres: They dont seem to be available as replacement items at all anywhere they are chunky at 700c x 47 that given, but you simply cannot get them. The Charger: it comes with the slow 2 Amp charger, the optional 4 Amp one.... well you cannot get that either. The battery: Its a consumable, and when its worn out.... well you cannot get that either. So it loses points for value for money because the parts are not available.

Great all round ebike
by Anonymous user on 14/08/2018

Wanted this bike to compliment the other bike I have. It doesn't disappoint, the motor assistance is quiet and provides plenty of torque when required. Allows me to go that much further and to enjoy cycling more. Some people think ebikes are cheating, I don't agree it gets me out more and is enjoyable and the turbo Vado does that. A criticism of Specialized thoughts that currently neither the tyres, upgraded 4 amp charger, (it comes with the 7h charging 2 amp version) or battery are available as replacement parts, which having spent all this money is a bit unnerving seeing as the battery is a consumable items.
