The Full Scoop on the 2021 Specialized Turbo Vado SL 5.0 


  • Vado: it means "I go." Cruising past traffic at up to 28 mph and arriving faster to work than your coworkers, all while still having time to stop for coffee? Check. Riding your bike way more often than you ever thought you would? Check. Explore, get fit, do your thing: Vado SL eliminates the barriers that had your old bike collecting dust in the corner. SL: it means "super light." At 40% lighter than the average e-Bike, that means carrying your Vado SL up a flight of stairs, lifting it onto the train or bus, or dropping it onto a bike rack without breaking a sweat and without throwing out your back. SL means livable. Vado SL delivers the defining combination of weight, power, range, and ride quality, giving you the confidence to ride more often and to places that you never imagined you would. With up to 80 miles of range from the internal 320 Wh battery and an optional range extender for up to 120 miles. At 40% lighter than the average e-Bike, another 40 miles of power, Vado SL lets you enjoy the ride, without worrying about the range.
