It's a busy world out there, and the sad thing is, it's getting faster all of the time. That's why we design faster bikes for busy lives, like the all-new Vado 4.0. It takes our proven Turbo pedal-assist technology and tailors it in a package that's designed for getting you around your day-to-day life quicker than ever before. Busy lives call for faster bikes.
Beginning with a completely redesigned and integrated Specialized 1.2 motor, the Vado proves itself as the ultimate city bike. The Rx Street Tune takes the efficient output and makes it most usable for the urban environment—reacting to the amount of force you apply to the pedals. Think of it this way: The more power you put out, the more power the motor puts out, and this makes accelerations from a standstill both quick and efficient. The belt driven motor is also smooth, silent, and free of annoying vibrations. Perfect.
For the Vado 4.0, we developed a custom Specialized U1-504 battery that seamlessly integrates into the frame, is lockable, and easily removable for simplified charging. With this battery, the Turbo Vado will deliver a pedal-assisted boost up to 105 miles in Economy mode, 45 miles in Sport mode, and 30 miles in Turbo mode. These estimates, of course, have some assumptions—the total rider and bike weight is 220 pounds, the terrain is flat with some inclines, and there is either no wind or a light breeze. In other words, with a top speed of 28mph, there's plenty of juice to take you to and from work, a trip to the grocery store, or even to that new café on the other side of the city.
We also developed a custom 2.2-inch smart computer that lets you view your battery level and toggle various ride metrics such as speed, distance, and time. You can also peruse these screens via the custom handlebar remote without ever removing your hands from the bars.
To top off all of the innovative features, we chose a worry-free spec on the Turbo Vado 4.0. Along these lines, it features Shimano 11-speed components, hydraulic disc brakes, racks, and fenders, so the Vado 4.0 will get you wherever you need to go, faster.
The Vado features a lightweight alloy frame that’s been designed with our Fitness/Transportation Geometry.
The Vado’s Specialized 1.2 motor is fully integrated with the frame and is custom-tuned for city riding. This means that it intuitively reacts to the force of your pedaling—so the harder you pedal, the more power it delivers. And with an internal belt drive design, it does this without added vibration for the smoothest and most silent ride possible.
Custom Specialized U1-504 battery is fully integrated with the frame, removable for easy charging, and lockable for added security. It communicates with the display and has multiple modes to maximize the overall efficiency and range.
