The All-New Specialized Turbo Levo

Representing the culmination of our forty years spent building state of the art bikes, Levo offers an unequalled combination of ride quality, power, and range. It is the distillation, application and amplification of everything Specialized know about mountain biking; a potent blend of chassis, suspension, geometry and motor assist that adds up to an incredible trail riding experience. It is the liveliest, most nimble, full-power eMTB ever.

  • Integrated Design: A full carbon chassis developed in concert with a new Turbo Full Power System motor and MasterMind Turbo Control Unit fuses together 150mm of rear suspension, progressive geometry and sophisticated motor assist to bring you a ride like no other. 
  • Mixed Wheel: A dedicated “Mullet” design with 27.5” rear and 29” front wheels allows short chainstays for nimble handling yet maintains the confidence-inspiring large wheel up front for traction and stability, delivering a ride that carves circles around other full-power eMTBs.
  • Progressive Geometry: A steeper seat tube angle, longer front end, and more relaxed head tube angle with a reduced offset fork centres you on the bike, optimizes traction and corner control, and enhances stability in the rough and at speed.
  • Personalised Handling: Along with the updated geometry, we tore a page from the Stumpjumper Evo playbook and made that geometry super-adjustable. Six different settings allow fine-tuning of ride characteristics – head angle is adjustable three ways between 63 and 65.5 degrees, and the bottom bracket can be independently raised or lowered 7mm via the flip-chip on the Horst pivot.

  • S-Sizing: Just like with the Enduro and Stumpjumper families, Levo is available in six sizes that are based on what matters most; rider size and style, not inseam. 
  • RxTune suspension: Levo’s 150mm rear/160mm front suspension has been custom-tailored specifically in consideration of the power and speed that this bike can generate. Kinematics, leverage curves, damping and spring rates have all been developed to work together in harmony, delivering a highly controlled, responsive and precise ride.
  • Power: The Turbo Full Power motor supplies up to 565 watts of peak power and 90Nm of torque – as much as quadrupling your efforts – but it delivers this ample power and torque in an intuitive and seamless manner for an incredibly natural feel. 
  • Range: Shattering limitations, Levo’s 700 watt-hour battery can support you for up to five hours of ride time. Smart Control ensures that you won’t run out of juice, managing support levels to get you home. Now you can ride farther and explore more than ever before.
  • Control: MasterMind Turbo Control Unit is the hardware and software that manages how the motor, battery, bike and you interact. It is essentially the brain of Levo and allows real-time.

“The Levo has a dedicated “Mullet” design with 27.5” wheel in the back and 29” up front. It’s a challenge to design a full-power electric assist mountain bike with lively handling because the motor takes valuable real estate that usually necessitates longer chainstays. The Levo’s smaller rear wheel allows for short chainstays; delivering a much more playful and nimble ride that carves circles around other full-power eMTBs.” – Specialized

Levo has six geometry settings allowing easy adjustment to match your style and hone performance in any terrain, from mellow fire roads to technical single-track. Choose between three headtube angles from 63 to 65.5-degrees. Bottom bracket height can fine tuned up or down by 7mm, thanks to the flip-chip located on the Horst pivot.

Levo shatters limitations when it comes to range, supporting you for up to five hours of trail time. Now you can ride farther and explore more than ever before. Smart Control ensures that you won’t run out of juice; it enables you to input the duration or distance of your ride and then manages support level to complete it with available battery charge.

The following is a rundown of the out-of-the-box functionality:

• Over-the-air updates ensure Levo gets better over time

• MasterMind TCU displays remaining charge as an easy to read percentage

• MicroTune feature allows on-the-fly adjustment of peak power and support levels in 10% increments, enabling easy equalization of effort to riding partners, increasing range by using only the power needed, conserving battery life and stretching out available ride time

• Personalization of display arrangement (4 choices) and 30 possible data values

• Clock

• “Live Consumption” teaches you how to pedal efficiently by displaying real time miles (or kilometers) per watt-hour

• Rider Power Value display allows you to see the power you’re putting into the bike

• Heart rate pairing capability to take your training to the next level

• Precision elevation tracking
