At a glance

The 2018 Specialized Men's S-Works Turbo Levo FSR 6Fattie/29 is an E-Mountain Carbon mountain bike. It sports 27.5" wheels, is priced at $13,100 AUD and a SRAM drivetrain. The bike is part of Specialized's Turbo Levo range of mountain bikes.

If it wasn’t for the faint glimpse of green LEDs flashing through the forest as you send it down through the trees, you’d surely forget that you were riding an e- MTB, which is exactly what makes the S-Works Turbo Levo FSR 6Fattie/29 so much different than all the others. It’s a trail bike, just with a little extra oomph. With it, you get the most advanced carbon technologies and engineering that come with all of our S-Works bikes, along with all of the hallmarks that our trail bikes are known for. This means that you get a 650-gram weight savings when compared to the alloy Levo, a roomy top tube for an easy fit and more control, ultra-short chainstays for nimble handling, and a low bottom bracket that makes the bike feel glued to the trail. Then comes a full FACT 11m carbon frame (both the chassis and rear end) and efficient and powerful Turbo technology, integrating a battery, and a new Turbo 1.3 motor that delivers 15% more power than the previous version.

This also delivers a sizeable increase in efficiency, while our exclusive Rx Trail Tune at the motor smoothly and quietly brings this additional power to the pedals, making climbing the steepest of trails nearly effortless. Of course, the output is fully adjustable to conserve energy, as well, while the custom motor is also the only one on the market that features instant pedal engagement, so you get immediate power the moment you need it, and consistent torque throughout the entire cadence range. At the battery, you’ll find that it’s fully integrated with the down tube and easily removable for quick charging or swaps. It has a lengthy lifespan for hitting long, out of the way trails and, along with the motor, it’s strategically placed for optimal weight distribution. You’ll also find our Mission Control App for full control of the Turbo technology, an integrated Trail Display with all of the ride metrics you need, a Trail Remote that lets your easily switch between modes without removing your hands from the bars, and a power meter that shows exactly how much power you’re putting out vs. the motor. This version also has a top-of-the-line build kit, with a 150mm Öhlins RXF36 fork, SRAM Code RSC brakes, and a SRAM XX1 groupset controlling shift and drivetrain duties. It also features our carbon Roval Traverse 38 SL Fattie wheel system that decreases deflection and dramatically increases traction, floatation, and fun over the trail. This system also allows you the opportunity to toggle between 29-inch wheels (not included) and 6Fattie wheels, allowing the ultimate in configuration options for the trail at hand.
