Specialized launch new standalone Turbo Levo SL
Fresh off the success of the Turbo Kenevo, Specialized have announced a brand-new e-MTB line in the form of the Turbo Levo SL.
Lighter than the Levo and Kenevo brands, the Levo SL is a bold undertaking by the American company as they look to further increase their e-bike footprint.
A lighter beast
One of the Turbo Levo SL’s major selling points is the weight, or rather, lack thereof. Specialized are claiming the weight of just 17.3 kilograms makes it easily the lightest e-MTB in its class. With its 150mm of travel it’s an electronic offering that sets out to be as playful as the nimblest of trail bikes.
Specialized even go so far as to describe the Levo SL as a “veritable mountain biking unicorn” which at the very least is sure to capture riders’ attentions.
Longer rides + Mission Control
Riders will no longer need to keep one eye on the clock with the advanced motor and lithium-ion batteries providing up to 3.5 hours of ride time from the internal battery alone. Those wanting even more can purchase the Range Extender, available as an accessory and as part of the limited Founder’s Edition model for an additional 1.5 hours of ride time.
Not only that but with the Mission Control app, you can tailor the power delivery, set range, track power and have complete control over battery management.
In addition to the burly Kenevo and powerful Levo, the Levo SL gives riders even more choice when it comes to e-MTBs.
The Levo SL will take advantage of Specialized’s new SL 1.1 motor, weighing over 1000g less than the Levo’s SL 2.1 motor.
The unique Founder’s Edition will be limited to just 250 models worldwide. Individually numbered, each Founder’s Edition features gold foil graphics laid over Spectraflair paint in satin finish, custom power saddle with matching gold ‘S’ graphic, matching gold Fox Shox fork and rear shock graphics, SRAM AXS wireless drivetrain with a rainbow colour cassette, chain, and brake hardware, as well as two Range Extenders.
The Turbo Levo SL is available from 4 February across Australia.
