Driving report Specialized Vado: strawberries for the colleagues

Probably running as the SUV. The heavy chunks will come out on the market, and if the concept has infected everyone, be submitted lighter and cheaper derivatives. Potent motors on the wheel play their advantages of strength and reach, but a lighter drive can also spark seduction. We have described recently the mountain bike Specialized Levo SL with some enthusiasm, now we were on to the office tours imaginary sister model, the on-the-go. It's called Turbo Vado SL and works on the same principle: smaller engine, less support, more Fitness, lighter, more agile, more streamlined. The Americans didn't invent the wheel new, of course, Fazua, for example, has a similar idea. But the idea of a gravel bike there is, and this will not be the last model. In the Specialized one with the car supplier, Mahle incurred potters, robust acting actuator.

16 kilograms weighs the SL with aluminum frame, 22 kilos of the ordinary Turbo-Vado. That, unfortunately, is somewhat loud engine with only 240 watts and 35 Nm doubles the applied force, and supports up to 25 km/h. The effect is nevertheless remarkable: The SL-series feels clearer after a bike ride, while the more potent E-Bikes can't deny a kinship to the Mofa. The elegant in the frame-integrated battery stores 320 Wh, which is little, but the concept fits. In the commuter - and shopping everyday the wheel is simply fun, and 110 kilometres of line are always there. Who has the longer rides can mount in the Cup holder for a replacement battery, then 480 Wh are on Board. The load time on the solid socket is approximately two and a half hours.

styled for The purist, all-around well-crafted Vado SL looks like it got no suspension. The rear of the right. The front Absorber is embedded in the more expensive versions at the foot of the handlebars in the tube, is sheathed with a cuff. The manufacturer calls the martial Future Shock System, it is the most absorbs on roads and light trails of lurking nasties away. The protection sheet to the front close to the tires, to the water to keep splashes away. However, it always reads back stones and catapults you to the front out. The rattles and stirs up fear of damage. A lighting system is always, and what a. We are, at midnight, through the field of home hazards, the cone of light is impressively bright, the security. At best, he could illuminate a little wider. And because the light is coupled to the drive battery, never makes it limp, as long as the bike runs.
