2019 SPECIALIZED TURBO VADO 5.0

It's what's inside that counts, and the same rings true with the Turbo Vado 5.0. Each component, from the motor to the battery, works in perfect harmony to provide you with a fully integrated, pedal-assist-system that's the perfect accomplice to your hectic schedule. And with its modern aesthetic and feel, this Vado has truly raised the bar for e-bike design. It's you, only faster.

Beginning with the integrated Specialized 1.3 motor, the Vado proves itself as the ultimate city bike. It features a silently operating design with the Custom Rx Street tune that takes the output and makes it the most usable for the 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 both quick and efficient. The belt driven motor is also smooth, silent, and free of annoying vibrations. Perfect.

For the Vado 5.0, they developed a custom 604Wh battery, the Specialized U1-604, that seamlessly integrates into the frame, is lockable, and is easily removable for simplified charging. With this battery, the 5.0 will deliver a pedal-assisted boost up to 50 miles in Economy mode, 35 miles in Sport mode, and 25 miles in Turbo mode. These estimates, of course, have some assumptions—the total rider and bike weight is 220lbs, the terrain is flat with some inclines, and there is either no wind or a light breeze. In other words, with a top speed of E328, there's plenty of juice to take you to and from work, make a trip to the grocery store, or to even head over to that new café on the other side of town.

Specialized developed a custom 2.2-inch smart computer that lets you view your battery level and toggle various ride metrics such as speed, distance and time. You can also peruse these screens via the custom handlebar remote without ever removing your hands from the bars.

To top off all of these innovative features, they chose a high-end spec, so you'll find Shimano XT/SLX 11-speed components, Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes, racks, and fenders. It's ready to take your riding to the next level.

  • The Vado features a lightweight alloy frame that’s been designed with their Fitness/Transportation Geometry.
  • The Vado’s Specialized 1.3 motor with Rx Street Tune is fully integrated with the frame, and it's also 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.
  • The custom 604 Wh battery has been made 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 maximise the overall efficiency and range.
