The much anticipated 2018 Specialized Turbo Kenevo is now in stock & available for order!

The Specialized Turbo Kenevo gives you the power to ride bigger trails; based on the Enduro chassis and the latest in the e-mtb line up the Specialized Turbo Kenevo is the answer for anyone that wants to make shuttling a thing of the past.


Specialized Turbo Kenevo – The Power to Ride Bigger Trails

The Specialized Turbo Kenevo came from a want to ride steeper, rougher, and gnarlier trails without loading up your buddy’s truck and spending more time driving up than riding.

Equipped with a RockShox Lyrik fork, Öhlins coil suspension, SRAM Code R brakes & a 6Fattie wheel system, this e-bike takes everything you can throw at it and asks for more.


Specialized Turbo Kenevo FSR – A true rider’s eMTB

The new 2018 Specialized Turbo Kenevo comes with 180mm (front and rear) of bump eating travel and a burly aluminium frame. A slack 65-degree head angle combines with the custom Öhlins coil rear shock to leave you grinning as you plow through near enough anything. The new Command Post Wu dropper post, meanwhile, makes climbing and descending even better than before, changing the seat angle incrementally as it moves through the travel, giving a gravity style set-up at the bottom of its stroke.

With all this, the Kenevo quickly becomes a true rider’s e-MTB bike. And with no corners cut, the gravity-fed experience is purer than ever, so you can leave that truck at home.


Integrated Specialized E-Bike Technology

Integration not only helps keep things sleek & stylish, it also helps create a true no-compromise trail bike. New to the integrated Turbo motor and battery system is the Trail Remote. Tucked discreetly on your bars to keep a clean cockpit, it provides easy accessibility to toggle between the four modes (including the new walk-assist) without removing your hands from the bar. Smooth power delivery and silent operation also make the experience truly like you, only faster.

The new Specialized 1.3 motor brings a few key upgrades. Improved efficiency, better heat management, and more power – you get all three. The new motor also packs 15% more power through new magnets and an all-new electronic unit. Meanwhile, improved motor efficiency and better heat management comes from hardware improvements and new software. These improvements also help balance your own power input to guarantee an even smoother assistance. Thermal pads in the motor help balance heat distribution internally, while the thermal pad between the motor and frame rid the system of excess heat.


The new Infinite Tune feature on the Mission Control App makes for a completely customisable tuning process. Each mode can be endlessly tuned in its assistance level and max motor current output, completely independent of one another. Inside the Mission Control app is the Smart Control feature that monitors and adjusts battery and motor output based on rider and ride input parameters, making adjustments every 10 seconds.

The Mission Control app is downloadable for free from any app store (iOS and Android).
