The Specialized Men's Turbo Vado 6.0 is the latest evolution of their award-winning pedal-assist technology, and let us tell you, it takes a massive step forward into the future of bicycle design. It features a custom battery and motor that are fully integrated with the bike and specifically tuned for city riding. The battery is super easy to remove from the bike for easy charging anywhere. The Mission Control App uses Bluetooth to let you toggle between three battery modes and increase your range in real time. You can even plot your course, and the app will adjust your battery mode while you're riding to make sure that you get through your ride on one charge. For the frame, Specialized opted for durable, lightweight aluminum and a geometry that increases comfort and smoothness. It also features reflective paint that illuminates under a headlight, increasing your visibility in low-light conditions. And for the build, you'll find confident hydraulic TRP Zurich disc brakes, wide-ranging 11-speed Shimano XT shifting, and integrated lights at the front and rear with Specialized's revolutionary lightguide technology.

The Rx Street Tune takes the 350-watt output and optimizes it for the urban environment—reacting to the amount of force you apply to the pedals. 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.

- A custom 2.2-inch BLOKS. digital TFT display enables you to monitor all of your ride data in real time. It also connects with the Turbo Vado Mission Control App via Bluetooth, so you have full control over the tune, modes, range, and much more.

- The Vado’s motor is fully integrated with the frame and features a 350-watt output. It's also been custom-tuned for city riding, and 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.

- Specialized made the custom 604Wh battery 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 maximize the overall efficiency and range.

Specialized Turbo Vado Motor

You're in Control

Meet the Turbo Vado’s motor. It’s eerily silent, and with its pedal-assisted, custom-tuned power, it multiplies your pedaling input by up to 320%. To run, it uses custom software that senses the torque you’re applying in each pedal stroke, and an algorithm amplifies the power that you’re putting in. The more power that you apply, the more power it puts out. It even allows you to custom tune it, so you can ride in your sweet spot for an intuitive feel and ride quality. It’s all up to you.

Specialized Turbo Vado Battery

The Power is in Your Hands

Like the motor, it’s customizable and fully integrated, however, it’s also easily removable, so you can charge it from wherever you want. While you’re riding, you can control the range, so you’ll never be left to pedal home unassisted.
