It's what's inside that counts, and the same rings true with the Turbo Vado 5.0. Each component, from the motor to the battery, works in perfect harmony to provide you with a fully integrated, pedal-assist-system that's the perfect accomplice to your hectic schedule. And with its modern aesthetic and feel, this Vado has truly raised the bar for e-bike design. It's you, only faster.
Beginning with the integrated Specialized 1.3 motor, the Vado proves itself as the ultimate city bike. It features a silently operating design with our Custom Rx Street tune that takes the output and makes it the most usable for the urban environment. 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 5.0, we developed a custom 604 Wh battery that seamlessly integrates into the frame, is lockable, and easily removable for simplified charging. In other words, 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. 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.
We also developed a custom 2.2-inch smart computer that lets you view your battery level and toggle various ride metrics such as speed, distance, and time. You can also peruse these screens via the custom handlebar remote without ever removing your hands from the bars.
To top off all of these innovative features, we chose a high-end spec, so you'll find Shimano XT/SLX 11-speed components, Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes, racks, and fenders. It's ready to take your riding to the next level.
