At a glance

The 2019 Specialized Men's S-Works Turbo Levo is an E-Mountain Carbon mountain bike. It sports 29" wheels, is priced at $15,000 AUD, has Fox suspension and a SRAM drivetrain. The bike is part of Specialized's S-Works Bikes range of mountain bikes.

The all-new S-Works Turbo Levo is by far the most stoke-inducing model in the Turbo Levo line. It has a carbon frame with a Sidearm design, like what you’ll find on the new Stumpjumper, plus 150mm of Rx-tuned travel, a redesigned custom motor, a new 700 Wh battery, and a long list of features that make this the ultimate trail bike—with some seriously extra oomph. The power to ride more trails is yours. You’re looking at one of the lightest full-suspension e-mountain bikes to ever touch dirt. Much of this weight savings come courtesy of what we learned while designing the latest Stumpjumper.

The new Sidearm frame design, for instance, gives the Turbo Levo an exceptional stiffness-to-weight ratio. Now, the bike is stiffer and has a lower-slung frame that’s more capable on tough descents, even easier to maneuver in technical terrain, and uses less battery power. We’ve also lengthened the reach, kept the chainstays nice and short, slacked out the head angle, steepened the seat angle, and maintained a low center of gravity. You’ll also find a new Flip Chip that lets you adjust the bottom bracket height and head angle in a matter of minutes. It’s dialed. We managed to increase battery capacity, meanwhile, by a massive 40%. The bike now gets more distance out of every full charge, so there’s no need to worry about getting caught on the trail without enough juice to get you home. The Smart Control feature, available with our Mission Control App, lets you set the power assist to last for either the duration of your ride or until you reach a point you’ve defined yourself. Battery status is now always on view with both the new Turbo Connect Unit and the optional handlebar-mounted Turbo Connect Display. We also cleaved away weight with our new magnesium-bodied motor. The new Specialized 2.1 motor amplifies your input by up to 410% with absolutely no awkward surges in power. Our engineers in Switzerland devoted years to making this a reality by creating custom software that drives the most cutting-edge motor in its class. And for the suspension, we redesigned it to give you even more control where you need it most. The initial travel is supple, but we added more mid-stroke support, so there’s no wallowing about or blowing through your 150mm of suspension travel on big hits and drops. This Turbo is also the smartest and best-connected e-MTB to date. Our Turbo Connect Unit is at the center of the top tube, and it connects the bike, via ANT+ and Bluetooth®, to both the outside world and the Turbo Connect Handlebar Display (available aftermarket). Speaking of which, the latest version of the Mission Control App now has more features and is simpler to use than ever before. It lets you easily custom-tune nearly every aspect of the bike, monitor your power use, control your range, perform basic system diagnoses, record and upload rides—there’s even a new Shuttle Mode feature that takes the sting out of long climbs by giving you maximum motor support with less required effort at the pedals. Of course, this wouldn’t be an S-Works without top-level spec, and this bike delivers with Roval Traverse SL 29-inch carbon wheels, big 2.6-inch Butcher tires, SRAM XX1/X01 11-speed shifting, a FOX 36 Factory fork w/ 150mm of travel, and a full FACT 11m carbon frame.
