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

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

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.

Electric Bike Guide

What is an electric bike? 

A bicycle with an electric motor and battery which supplements your natural pedalling power. Also known as e-bikes or pedelecs, no licence is required and you can ride them in the same places as regular bikes. 

How does an electric bike work? 

Riding an ebike is very simple, just start pedalling and the electric motor will help you along. The assist is most noticeable when starting off and climbing will seem almost effortless.  

How fast can I ride an electric bike? 

The electric motor is restricted by law to offer assistance only up to 15.5mph. You can of course ride an e-bike faster than that but you will be relying on your own pedal power over 15.5mph. 

Are they heavier than ordinary bikes? 

Electric bikes are 7 to 10kg heavier than ordinary bikes due to the extra weight of the motor and battery. You won’t really notice this extra weight while pedalling thanks to the electric assist. E-bikes handle well too as the extra weight is slung down low making them nice and stable. 

Can I vary the power output? 

Yes, the motors have different power modes so you can choose how much assist you need. The higher power modes will get you up to speed quicker but will use up the battery capacity faster.  

How far can I ride on one charge? 

The range of an ebike will depend on the battery size as well as the amount of assist the motor gives you. For example, cycling up hills requires more assist than riding on the flat. Battery capacity is measured in Watt Hours (Wh). A 400Wh battery pack will give you a range of 20 – 90 power assisted miles. While a 500Wh pack offers 30 – 140 miles 

How can I tell how much charge is left in the battery? 

The batteries have a charge indicator so you can easily tell how much is remaining. In addition to this many e-bikes have a display unit on the handlebars. This shows battery capacity as well as other data like speed and predicted range. 

Can I still ride it if the battery is flat? 

Yes, it will ride just like an ordinary bike (if a little slower due to the extra weight) once the battery is flat. You can also choose to switch the power assist off to save battery power. 

Can I take the battery off the bike to charge it? 

Yes, electric bike batteries can be charged either on or off the bike. The batteries are locked on to the bike, for security, but are easy to remove so you can charge them in work ready for the commute home.  

How long does it take to recharge the battery? 

The lithium ion batteries on most e-bike are quick to charge. A 400Wh battery pack will take about 3.5 hours to fully charge from flat. A 300Wh battery will charge in about 2.5hrs. 

What type of electric bike should I choose? 

As with any bike, the type you choose will depend on where you want to ride. The difference with ebikes is that you don’t have to worry so much about rolling resistance as the electric motor will overcome that. Up to 15.5mph an electric mountain bike will be just as quick as an electric road or hybrid bike. Road and hybrid bikes will offer an increased range however as they are more efficient.
