Harmony of components 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 integrated battery, works in 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 raised the bar for e-bike design.
Ultimate City Bike Beginning with a completely redesigned and integrated Specialized 1.2 S motor, the Vado proves itself as the ultimate city bike. The Rx Street Tune takes the powerful 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.
Plenty of Juice For the Vado 5.0, we developed custom Specialized U1-604 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 50 miles in Economy mode, 35 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.
