The all-new Specialized Turbo Levo SL Electric Mountain Bike has landed, and it’s changed the game.

With the power to ride more trails, this is a superlight e-MTB with 150mm of travel that doubles your pedalling power and handles like a nimble trail bike.


The Turbo Levo SL plays against conventional wisdom that says it’s impossible for an electric bike to be playful. Crushing long rides, while loving to get rowdy means it’s a bike that completely redefines the modern mountain bike experience.

So light you’ll forget it’s electric, at a weight as light as 17.3 kilograms (38.25 pounds), the S-Works Turbo Levo SL isn’t just the lightest e-MTB in its class—it’s in a class of its own. And why does that actually matter? Because the end result is a veritable mountain biking unicorn. A bike that’s light and nimble that loves to get airborne, manoeuvres through technical terrain with ease...and gives you the power to ride more trails.

Specialized Turbo.

Same Effort, Double the Reward

Specialized have harnessed the quick and lively ride of our Stumpjumper and added power to introduce a whole new dimension of kick ass. That meant creating an entirely new, superlight and powerful motor. Designed in California and engineered in Switzerland, the Turbo Levo SL’s 240-watt Specialized SL 1.1 motor doubles the power you put into the pedals with a remarkably smooth and natural feel. And when the motor is off there’s no drag, so the Levo SL pedals with the ease of a traditional drivetrain.


Bring on the big rides

The Specialized Turbo Levo SL’s advanced motor and lithium-ion batteries give you the speed and range to tackle truly massive rides. With up to 3.5 hours of ride time from the internal battery alone, the Levo SL  lets you enjoy the ride without worrying about the range. Want to go even further? Our Range Extender is the answer. Included with both the S-Works and Founder’s Edition models (and available as an accessory for all other models (£299.00 RRP for the battery, £24.99 RRP for the Cable), each Range Extender battery provides up to another 1.5 hours of ride time, for a total of up to 5 hours of trail-riding power.

Power Personalised with Mission Control

With the Mission Control App, you can custom tune the Turbo Levo SL’s power delivery, control your range, record rides, track your power, and even use Smart Control to automatically handle battery management so you’ll always have power when you need it. It’s power, personalized. Or you can simply climb aboard, push the “on” button, and hammer to your heart’s content. It’s your choice. You’re good either way, because they’ve created the technology that connects you to the trail and lets you focus on what matters most—the ride.
