Como SL

The Como Super Light is a low-maintenance joy machine, equipped with everything you need for spontaneous fun. Carry it down stairs, zip across town, pack it full of groceries, it’s ready to take flight. It also just so happens to double your power when you pedal—with super-smooth assistance that makes you feel like the superhero you are.

It’s true: the Como Super Light amplifies your power up to 2x thanks to its 240-watt Super Light System motor. Also true: it feels just like riding a bike. Specialized have used the Specialized Super Light System developed in-house to power the best road and mountain bikes and brought an entirely new and more maneuverable experience to the upright and comfortable Como family of bikes. Start pedaling and the assist kicks in naturally, without knocking you back. It’s still you doing the pedaling, only now you can conquer every steep hill that comes your way.

You don’t need to become an amateur mechanic to own the Como SL—just charge up and it’s ready to ride. The internal gear hub (IGH) keeps the gears housed and sealed inside the rear wheel, protecting them even at the most packed bike rack, and the optional Gates belt drive doesn’t need lubrication like a chain does. Ultra-bright lights are built in and powered by the internal battery, so you’re always lit .

The Como Super Light isn’t slowed down by bad weather. We designed this bike for all seasons in all regions. With powerful disc brakes and wide Nimbus tires, you’ll feel stable and well-connected to the road. DRYTECH fenders deflect the dirt and water away from you, while integrated lights illuminate the road ahead. And the most important components—Internal Gear Hub, battery, and cables—stay protected from the elements and running clean. The Como SL comes fully equipped to carry most anything with you. A built-in rear rack is ready to hold two panniers up to 20 kg/44 lb. And a front porteur rack with a removable front basket can handle up to 15 kg/33 lb of groceries. The bike comes standard with a kickstand, and because the front rack is frame-mounted, you don’t have to worry about the basket flopping around when you park.

The Como SL delivers the assurance of a 320Wh battery, good for up to 62 miles / 100 km of range in Eco mode, plus the security of having it integrated within the frame. An optional Range Extender adds up to 31 miles / 55 km of additional range. It’s fully removable, compact, and easy to charge whenever you are, so you can top off on the go. California designed and Swiss engineered, the new Specialized Super Light system represents the very best in lightweight e-bike performance. Ultralight and quiet, the Specialized SL system doubles your effort with a smooth power delivery. No unnatural power curve, lurching, or motor jumps. It delivers up to 240 watts of power that are in sync with your cadence all the way to 28mph. If you outpace the motor’s assistance, there’s no awkward cutoff or drag, just smooth riding for miles.

Vado SL ST

VADO SL - THE PERFECT BALANCE

Pedal, then go—over hills, past traffic. Cruise to 15 mph, for up to 80 miles. And at 40% lighter than the average e-bike, it’s built to bring with you: up the stairs, down the hall, on the train, to the office, and everywhere you go.

SO LIGHT YOU’LL FORGET IT’S ELECTRIC

SL stands for Super Light. That’s right, we said 40% lighter than the average e-Bike. There’s no other e-bike out there with range and power like this, at a weight that’s light enough to carry. We’ve taken the same Specialized SL 1.1system developed in-house to meet the needs of the world’s most discerning road and mountain riders with the Turbo Creo SL road bike and Turbo Levo SL mountain bike and brought an entirely new and more maneuverable experience to the Vado family of recreation and commuter focused bikes.
