The All New Specialized Turbo Levo FSR

Put yourself in Specialized shoes: You just made the most celebrated and awarded e-mountain bike in existence. Do you give yourself a high-five and go get donuts, or do you get to work on making something even better? They didn’t bring home the donuts, but they did create something downright revolutionary.

The all-new Turbo Levo is what happens when a group of Swiss geniuses refuse to be satisfied, are kept well fed and entertained, and are hell-bent on giving you a ride even better than you thought was possible. New chassis. New motor. New battery. Next-level software—the new Turbo Levo reflects a complete design overhaul that doesn’t just set the bar for e-MTB, it embodies it. The Levo, however, takes everything they learned from the latest Stumpjumper’s development and puts it into a lighter, slimmer, stiffer, and incredibly capable package.They  even boosted its range by a staggering 40%, and equipped it with the smoothest, quietest, and most powerful motor in its class.

Rowdy Descents? Steep Climbs? Hell. Yes.

Taking nods from the Stumpjumper, the Turbo Levo is a fully-fledged progressive trail bike. Specialized has lengthened the reach, kept the chainstays nice and short, and maintained a low center of gravity. Next, They slackened the head angle for more confident descents and steepened the seat angle to improve climbing efficiency. They have also added a Flip Chip, so you can adjust your bottom bracket height and head angle in a matter of minutes. It’s dialed.

More Control Up AND Down the Trail

They fine-tuned the Turbo Levo’s suspension design to give you even more control where you need it most. The initial travel is supple—perfect for smoothing out small bumps and trail chatter. We also added more mid-stroke support, so there’s no wallowing about or blowing through your 150mm of suspension travel on big hits and drops. This extra mid-stroke support also helps when you’re climbing by keeping the bike from sinking into its rear travel when the trail points up and your weight shifts back.

The Smoothest, Quietest, and Most Powerful Motor in Its Class

The Turbo Levo’s ultralight, magnesium-bodied Specialized 2.1 motor amplifies your input by up to 410% with absolutely no awkward surges in power. No lurch. No “I really hope this thing will stop” motor jumps. Our engineers in Switzerland devoted years, literally, to making this a reality by creating custom software that drives the most cutting-edge motor in its class. And it’s all exclusive to the Turbo Levo—a motor that provides an incredibly smooth and natural boost to your own pedaling efforts. It’s You, Only Faster.

More Miles from Every Charge

What do you call an e-MTB with no battery charge left? Unacceptable. That’s why they have increased battery capacity by 40%, courtesy of the most advanced lithium-ion technology out there. The Turbo Levo now gets more distance out of every full charge, so you’ll never have to worry about getting caught on the trail without enough juice to get you home. The Smart Control feature, available with our Mission Control App, lets you set the Turbo Levo’s power assist to last for either the duration of your ride or until you reach a point you’ve defined yourself. Wondering how much battery you have left? The battery status is always on view with both the new Turbo Connect Unit and the optional handlebar-mounted Turbo Connect Display.
