Specialized Turbo Levo FSR Comp Carbon 6FATTIE/29 2018

450g lighter than the alloy version, thanks to its carbon main frame, and 15% more powerful than last year's Levo FSR Comp, Specialized take their e-MTB to a new level.

The latest Turbo Levo FSR Comp is 15% more powerful than last year's version, which we rated then as the best electric mountain bike we've ever tested.

SRAM one-click gear shift lever
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 Comp'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 seals for extra mud and water resistance. 

In compliance with EU and UK law, this e-bike is a pedal bike with up to 250W power assist, which cuts out once you reach 25KPH (15.5 MPH)
This limiter doesn't prevent you going faster 'the old way' - by pedalling harder.

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

Fun. It's one word that we often forget about in our daily lives, but always find out on the trail. A feeling that we're constantly seeking ways to maximize. And this is what the Turbo Levo FSR Comp Carbon 6Fattie/29 is all about—exploring more trails, and simply having more fun.

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.

With it, you get the most advanced carbon technologies and engineering that come with all of our S-Works bikes, along with all of the hallmarks that our trail bikes are known for. This means that you get a 450-gram weight savings when compared to the alloy Levo, a roomy top tube for an easy fit and more control, ultra-short chainstays for nimble handling, and a low bottom bracket that makes the bike feel glued to the trail.

Then comes a FACT 11m carbon chassis, with an M5 alloy rear end, 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 sizeable 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 durable build kit, with a 150mm RockShox Revelation RC up front, SRAM Guide RE brakes, and a SRAM GX one-by groupset controlling shift and drivetrain duties. It also features our revolutionary 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 Turbo Levo FSR frame is constructed with a FACT 11m carbon fibre chassis and M5 Premium Aluminium rear end, making it not only lightweight but also quite stiff and responsive.
  • The design includes our Trail 6Fattie Geometry that includes a low bottom bracket, roomy top tube, and 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 M1-504 battery features an integrated Trail Display and ANT+/Bluetooth® module with Mission Control App connectivity.
  • It also houses 504Wh of trail-taming juice, and it's neatly integrated into the down tube.
