Product Description

Details

Specialized Turbo Como 5.0

High bars, step-through unisex frame and 650b tyres: the Como offers a cruiser bike-like comfort ride, turbo charged with a Custom Rx Street-tuned motor.

Unlike any cruiser bike you might have seen before, the Specialized Turbo Como comes superbly equipped with a Shimano SLX/XT 1x11 drivetrain and matching Shimano BR-MT500 hydraulic disc brakes for assured control.

Here's how Specialized describe the Turbo Como 5.0

When it comes to e-bikes, you won't often find the words "stylish" and "fun" in their descriptions—that is until the Turbo Como 5.0 Low-Entry. With a comfortable geometry, a modern, sportive look, and an additional boost from the fully integrated motor, this Turbo Como brings more fun to your bike ride than you ever could have imagined.

Beginning with a completely redesigned and integrated Turbo 1.2 motor, the Como proves itself as the fastest, most comfortable urban bike you've ever perched yourself upon. First off, our proprietary Rx Street Tune takes the power of a belt-driven motor that's smooth, silent, and free of annoying vibrations, and makes it optimized for riding in an urban environment by 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. Perfect.

For the Como, we developed a custom Turbo UI-504 battery that seamlessly integrates into the frame, plus it's lockable and easily removable for simplified charging. With this battery, the Turbo Como delivers some extra "oomph," with plenty of juice to accompany you on your cruise down the bike path, a trip to the grocery store, or even to that new café on the other side of the city.

We also developed a custom 2.2-inch computer with the German powerhouse, BLOKS. With this touchscreen smart computer, you're able to connect, via Bluetooth®, to our Mission Control App for full control of the Turbo technology. This app allows you to tune the motor to your personal preferences. You can also peruse these screens via the custom handlebar remote without ever removing your hands from the bars.

This Como features our Ground Control Geometry that makes it easy to put a foot down at a stop sign, while eliminating the struggle that is getting on and off of the bike. And to top off all of these innovative features, we chose a high-end spec for that includes Shimano XT/SLX 11-speed components, four-piston hydraulic disc brakes, racks, fenders, and built-in lights at the front and rear.

The custom E5 Low-Entry aluminium frame on the Como, cleanly houses the battery and motor, while still keeping the lightweight properties that E5 is known for. Pair this with our Ground Control Geometry, and you have a durable and lightweight bike that'll keep you rolling in style. The Como's motor is fully integrated with the frame and features a smooth, silent, vibration-free 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 504 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.
