When it comes to e-bikes, you won’t often find the words “stylish” and “fun” in their descriptions—that is until the Turbo Como 5.0 Low-Entry. With a comfortable geometry, a modern, sportive look, and an additional boost from the fully integrated motor, this Turbo Como brings more fun to your bike ride than you ever could have imagined.
Beginning with a completely redesigned and integrated Specialized 1.2 motor, the Como proves itself as the fastest, most comfortable urban bike you’ve ever perched yourself upon. First off, our proprietary Rx Street Tune takes the power of a belt-driven motor that’s smooth, silent, and free of annoying vibrations, and makes it optimized for riding in an urban environment by 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. Perfect.
For the Como, we developed a custom Specialized U1-504 battery that seamlessly integrates into the frame, plus it’s lockable and easily removable for simplified charging. With this battery, the Turbo Como delivers some extra “oomph,” with plenty of juice to accompany you on your cruise down the bike path, 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 computer with the German powerhouse, BLOKS. With this touchscreen smart computer, you’re able to connect, via Bluetooth®, to our Mission Control App (available later this year) for full control of the Turbo technology. This app allows you to tune the motor to your personal preferences. You can also peruse these screens via the custom handlebar remote without ever removing your hands from the bars.
This Como features our Ground Control Geometry that makes it easy to put a foot down at a stop sign, while eliminating the struggle that is getting on and off of the bike. And to top off all of these innovative features, we chose a high-end spec for that includes Shimano XT/SLX 11-speed components, four-piston hydraulic disc brakes, racks, fenders, and built-in lights at the front and rear.
