Specialized has set the bar high for every bike they've built since their inception in 1974. So it's no surprise that the Specialized Turbo lineup has become the industry standard for performance in electric mountain bikes, electric commuting bikes, and electric gravel bikes.
Specialized Bikes are designed, prototyped, and developed at Specialized headquarters in Morgan Hill, California.
Specialized contracts with Merida, a Taiwanese manufacturer, to produce their bikes.
Specialized has been working with Merida since 1974, because of their reputation for making high-quality bikes.
Specialized prides itself on being a brand made by rides for rides.
A Specialized e-bike can cost you anywhere from $2,500 - $15,000 depending on the materials, specs, and customization.
While that may sound pricy, Specialized invests a ton of money on research, innovation and quality components. Some of that cost is passed on to the consumer, but it means that you get a high quality, more durable bike.
Specialized doesn’t manufacture a huge number of bikes. They’ve chosen to invest in quality over quality, but that also means that the demand for, and price of, these bikes is higher.
For your money, Specialized offers impressive warranties. Frames, forks, chainstays, and seat posts all come with a lifetime warranty. Other components have a five year warranty.
The mantra Specialized uses for their Turbo e-bikes is, "it's you, only faster." This means they strive for, and achieve, an electric bike that gives you that feeling you get while riding acoustic--but we've got a feeling you'll prefer electric.
They show their innovation through features like their Mission Control App, where you can customize your ride including how much power the bike gives you in each level of assistance.
With motor choices between the powerful and quiet Brose S Mag and the compact and lightweight Specialized 1.1, you'll have no trouble finding a ride you're stoked about.
Turbo e-bikes give you not only the power to ride but the power to feel like you can go anywhere, anytime.
Third-party devices also get to come along for the ride because you can utilize your bicycle computer or GPS in conjunction with the Mission Control App.
Their inclusion of a range extender on lightweight Turbo e-bikes like the Turbo Vado SL, Turbo Creo SL, and Turbo Levo SL. This means your range isn’t limited just because you wanted a bike that is light. Weight is truly not a factor anymore.
Maybe most importantly, the fact that they use their FSR linkage system on the Turbo Levo. Because a Specialized mountain bike wouldn't be the same without FSR.
Specialized Bikes are built to last a lifetime, if they are taken proper care of.
In fact, your Specialized Bike frame might even out live you. Components will need repair more frequently, but if you stay on top of maintaining your bike, it will give you thousands of miles of riding.
Proper storage will also extend the life of your bike. Never store your e-bike with a full battery, and be sure to wipe down the frame, motor, and moving parts after each ride to prevent the build of grime.
If your bike is damaged, Specialized offers five year to life time warranties on all your bikes, to keep your bike in good repair.
Like all the greats, Specialized designs bikes for every rider. And they do it unbelievably well.
Downhill shredders get the Turbo Kenevo. Singletrack lovers get the Turbo Levo. Gravel junkies get the Turbo Creo. Commuters get the Turbo Vado. Leisure riders get the Turbo Como.
And many of these bikes offer a superlight counterpart if you don't want a big battery and motor weighing you down.
No matter how or where you ride, there’s a Specialized Turbo bike for you.
At Fly Rides, we'll help you decide which Specialized bike that is and get you riding on singletrack, paved roads, or gravel paths so that you can find out what "it's you, only faster" really means.
