Rider review:

“Choosing an e-bike can be a minefield. There are so many different options! Once I’d decided I wanted a lightweight e-bike, the decision became a lot easier. Specialized Turbo Vado SL 5.0 EQ is a lightweight bike from a great range, that has excellent levels of equipment and rides like a non-electric bike. In short, the Specialized Vado SL 5.0 has it all. Lights, mudguards, a pannier rack, and the comfort of Future Shock suspension make for an amazing do it all bike. 

The daily commute is despatched with ease, whilst the led lights front and rear powered by the bike’s battery ensure that you’re seen on busy streets. The Future Shock dispenses with bumpy streets with ease. The big volume 38mm tyres work well with the Future Shock. 

 Fast forward to the weekend. A change of tyres to Specialized Pathfinder Pro, change the character of the Specialized Turbo Vado SL 5.0 to a competent off rider. I ride a lot around the New Forest trails, and the assistance afforded by the super smooth SL motor paired with the 12 speed drive train, makes riding the hills a breeze. I no longer feel like I’m holding my friends up towards the end of the ride when I would normally be struggling to keep pace with everyone.  

The Specialized bikes electric range is superb, regularly getting over 60 miles from the internal 320Wh battery. The optional range extender battery can also give you up to 120 miles of range. 

Riding the Specialized Turbo Vado SL 5.0 EQ is like having a tailwind all the time. The other bonus of Specialized Vado SL 5.0 is that if you do run out of power, the bike is just as easy to ride as a non-e-bike.”
