Product Details

Specialized Turbo Vado 3.0 2020 - Hybrid Electric Bike

If you can characterize your life as on-the-go, busy, or not having enough time, Specialized made a bike for you — the Specialized Turbo Vado 3.0 2020. It's made to accommodate busy lives that are always in movement, which is why they took their award-winning pedal-assist technology and accelerated it well into the future.

Key Features

  • The Turbo Vado 3.0 features a lightweight alloy frame that’s been designed with Specialized's Fitness/Transportation Geometry
  • The Turbo Vado’s Specialized 1.2 E motor emphasizes efficiency and range. It is also fully integrated with the frame, and it's been custom-tuned for city riding. It intuitively reacts to the force of your pedaling, 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.
  • They made the custom 460 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. For range estimates based upon a variety of variables, please refer to our Turbo Range Calculator.

More Reasons to Buy the Turbo Vado 3.0

  • Integrated Specialized 1.2 e Motor - the Turbo Vado proves itself as the ultimate city bike. The 1.2 E motor uses the same hardware as their 1.2 motor, but it features a tune that prioritizes efficiency. This means less peak torque and maximum output. Of course, it still features a near-silent operating design with Custom Rx Street Tune that takes the output and makes it the most usable for an urban environment. 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 at, say, a traffic light both quick and efficient. The belt driven motor is also smooth, silent, and free of annoying vibrations.

  • Custom U1-460 battery - seamlessly integrates into the frame, is lockable, and easily removable for simplified charging. In other words, there's plenty of juice to take you to and from work, a trip to the grocery store, or even to that new café on the other side of the city.

  • New Wired Turbo Connect Display (TCD-w) - the best way to view data on your Turbo. It not only displays important ride metrics (speed, cadence, rider power, distance, battery level, time, etc.), it also allows you to connect the latest version of the Mission Control App for an enhanced Turbo experience. With our free app for iOS and Android phones, you easily customize motor parameters, control your range, record/upload rides, and perform basic system diagnosis.

  • Worry-free spec - to top off all of the innovative features, there's a worry-free spec that features Shimano 9-speed components, hydraulic disc brakes, racks, front/rear lights, and fenders.
