Specialized Turbo Levo FSR ST Women's 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.

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
 

If speed is at the top of your wish list, there's no better tool than the Women's Turbo Levo FSR Short Travel 6Fattie. It takes the fun, efficiency, and speedy characteristics of our hardtails and adds our Turbo technology to crank-up the speed along every part of the trail.

First and foremost, it has all of the speed and nimble handling that our trail bikes are known for— capable geometry, ultra-short chainstays for nimble handling, and a low bottom bracket that makes the bike feel glued to the trail. Then comes the efficient and powerful Turbo technology, along with an integrating a battery and motor. This year, however, you'll see some updated software that increases pedalling efficiency with the M5 Premium Aluminium frame. The exclusive, Rx trail-tuned motor smoothly and quietly brings this additional power to the pedals to make climbing the steepest of trails nearly effortless. The output, meanwhile, is fully adjustable in order to conserve energy. Lastly, our new custom Turbo 1.3 motor is also the only one on the market that features instant pedal engagement and consistent torque throughout the entire cadence range. 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 has a build kit that blurs the line between performance and strength, with a 120mm RockShox Reba RL fork, powerful SRAM Level T hydraulic disc brakes, a one-by SRAM GX/NX groupset controlling shift duties, a custom crankset at the drivetrain, and Women's Body Geometry touchpoints to ensure comfort over the long haul.

  • 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 our Women's 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.
