Product Description

Details

Specialized Turbo Levo FSR 6Fattie/29 2018

The latest Turbo Levo FSR is 15% more powerful than last year's version, which we rated among the best e-mountain bike we've tested.

Another improvement over last year's model is that the SRAM 1x11 drivetrain now comes with a one-click lever. This means that one click moves the chain up or down one cog. This prevents you multi-shifting, which is inadvisable on any e-bike because the motor's torque combined with your pedaling power can break the chain, and possibly the derailleur and rear hanger too.

Comes with the latest, upgraded Specialized 27.5" Plus tyres fitted - can also take 29" wheels and tyres (not supplied)
While the Levo FSR's Plus size tyres have slimmed down ever so slightly from last year's 27.5x3" to 27.5x2.8", the Specialized Butcher tyres' GRID casing, Gripton compound and more aggressive tread pattern deliver even better traction.

Talking of tyres, should you ever wish this bike had 29" wheels and tyres, this year's Levo FSR Comp frame is built to take them.

Evolution
Specialized have been creating Turbo electric bikes since 2012 and have been refining their designs ever since.

Brose Motor Unit
Brose are a high-end automotive parts company based in Berlin. Their 90Nm torque motor unit has the best power to weight ratio in the industry. For 2018, Brose have engineered it to cool down better internally and externally. Brose didn't stop there though, they upgraded the bearings and upgraded the seals for upgraded mud and water resistance. 

We'll leave it to Specialized to describe their Turbo Levo FSR Comp 6FATTIE/29 2018 in their own words
 

The Turbo Levo FSR 6Fattie/29 has the perfect blend of trail performance, proper handling, technology, and durability, delivering you the power to ride more trails in a package that won't leave you broke and hungry.

With the Turbo Levo FSR, first and foremost, you get all of the hallmarks that our mountain bikes are known for—a roomy top tube for an easy fit, ultra-short chainstays for nimble handling, and a low bottom bracket that makes the bike feel glued to the trail.

Then comes an M5 aluminium frame and efficient and powerful Turbo technology, integrating a battery, and a new Turbo 1.3 motor that delivers 15% more power than the previous version. This also delivers a significant increase in efficiency, while our exclusive Rx Trail Tune at the motor smoothly and quietly brings this additional power to the pedals, making climbing the steepest of trails nearly effortless. Of course, the output is fully adjustable to conserve energy, as well, while the custom motor is also the only one on the market that features instant pedal engagement, so you get immediate power the moment you need it, and consistent torque throughout the entire cadence range.

At the battery, you'll find that it's fully integrated with the down tube and easily removable for quick charging or swaps. It has a lengthy lifespan for hitting long, out of the way trails and, along with the motor, it's strategically placed for optimal weight distribution. You'll also find our Mission Control App for full control of the Turbo technology, an integrated Trail Display with all of the ride metrics you need, a Trail Remote that lets your easily switch between modes without removing your hands from the bars, and a power meter that shows exactly how much power you're putting out vs. the motor.

This version also has a 150mm RockShox Reba RL fork, SRAM Level T brakes, and a SRAM one-by groupset. It also features our new 6Fattie wheel system that decreases deflection and dramatically increases traction, floatation, and fun over the trail. This system also allows you the opportunity to toggle between 29-inch wheels (not included) and 6Fattie wheels, allowing the ultimate in configuration options for the trail at hand.

  • The frame was constructed from our M5 Premium Aluminium, which is equal parts, strong, lightweight, and incredibly responsive. The design of the frame itself revolves around our Trail 6Fattie Geometry that includes all of our trail hallmarks, like a low-slung bottom bracket, roomy top tube, and ultra-short chainstays. Cable routing is all internal, including that of the Command Post IR, while the battery is fully integrated in the down tube and the motor is secured by a forged brace mount.
  • The custom Turbo 1.3 Rx Trail-tuned motor is built for the Levo and features a 15% power increase and a significant efficiency increase compared to the Turbo 1.2 motor. 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 gear box when you hit top speed, and silent, smooth, and consistent output—even at max power.
  • The Turbo M1-460 battery features an integrated Trail Display, ANT+/Bluetooth® module, and Mission Control App connectivity. It also houses 460Wh of trail-taming juice, and it's neatly integrated into the down tube.
