The new Turbo Levo Expert takes all of the “get gnarly” attributes of our newest trail bikes—like perfectly-tuned kinematics, a true Trail Geometry, and an optimally-stiff frame—and adds in cutting-edge tech the likes of which the e-MTB world has never seen. We're talking a new custom motor, a higher-capacity battery, and much, much more. So yeah, it gives you the power to ride more trails, but it does so in a way that's better than we ever could have ever imagined.
- The Turbo Levo frame is constructed with a FACT 9m carbon fiber chassis and an M5 Premium Aluminum rear-end, making it not only lightweight but also stiff and responsive. The design includes our 29 Trail Geometry that includes a low bottom bracket, lengthy top tube, and short chainstays. Kinematics of the frame have also been perfected, along with rider-tuned stiffness. Cable routing is all internal, including that of the Command Post IR, while the battery is fully integrated into the down tube, while the minimalist motor is mounted in a more secure, lighter way.
- The custom Specialized 2.1 Rx Trail-tuned motor is more efficient, 15% smaller, and 11% lighter than its predecessor. This successfully places it at the top of e-bike motor technology. 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.
- This Turbo’s new Specialized M2-series battery features a 700Wh capacity, providing you with 40% more capacity and range, and even more power to ride more trails. It, of course, still seamlessly integrated inside the frame and is easily removable, too.
