Product Details

2016 Specialized Turbo X

Specialized's Turbo X combines speed and style through an innovative electric-assist motor, advanced electronics, and sleek design. The Turbo was named with intent: Its custom-built Direct Drive rear hub motor allows this hot-rod to jump off the line when the light turns green, and intuitive speed controls are integrated into the grip. Make no mistake though, this is a real bike, and it’s outfitted to ride like one. Fast-rolling 700c wheels with wide 47mm tires deliver a smooth, capable ride. There's a stellar RockShox Paragon fork with 50mm of travel up front to smooth out imperfect pavement and light trails. Add in a 10-speed Shimano Deore drivetrain, and you're more than ready to roll. Shimano's Deore hydraulic disc brakes quickly scrub speed and use regenerative braking technology to top off the battery’s power level. And you'll enjoy excellent stability and confident tracking at any speed thanks to stiff, sturdy thru-axle wheels. All this, yet the electric motor is nearly silent, so you'll have to make motorcycle noises with your mouth.

      Comments:

      I demo'd this bike at a local shop to see if it was appropriate for my father who has a bad back and bad knees. Based on the conversation with the shop owner this is the person who they are marketing this product to - someone who can't otherwise bike for any significant distance (handicapped and/or elderly). First, the brakes are significantly underspec'd for a bike of this weight. Second, the power assist cut out intermittently, one time it was at the bottom of a hill. If I weren't an actual cyclist I would guess the bike would have had to be abandoned. Lastly, you can't load these things on a standard bike rack. I just don't get this concept - if you can't ride a bike - why don't you just ride a scooter or motorcycle? I'm going to get my dad a BMW f650 instead of this bike. I'll end up saving money since he can ride it for a few years and it won't depreciate more than a couple thousand bucks. This bike will be worth nothing as soon as you roll it out the showroom floor.

      Perfect urban cross bike for long travelling

      Comments:

      This is a bullet proof bike so far after 100 miles. The ride is excellent and performance top notch for an Urban X bike. Currently getting 120 miles per charge running Econ 20 and doing some regeneration down steep hills.
