Turbo Levo review

Turbo Levo review

I took the Specialized Turbo Levo out for a spin. So, for anyone on the fence about getting a Turbo Levo, here's my review.

The Turbo Levo is an electric mountain bike that uses pedal assist technology. I took the Turbo Levo FSR on a few different trails over a three day stretch: a fairly-well maintained xc trail, a rougher motorized trail, and a gnarly less-traveled trail with several water crossings, steep climbs and challenging terrain.

On all trails, the first thing that stood out was that this is in no way, shape or form a motor bike. I wasn't kicking up roost, riding wheelies everywhere and accelerating like crazy out of corners. I was just pedaling at a consistent cadence, but carrying a much higher average speed (and doing climbs in 3 or 4 gears taller than normal).  I worked just as hard on a 2-hour pedal on the Turbo Levo as I would normally on my Enduro. However––and here's what I loved most about the Levo––I covered three to four times as much ground in those 2 hours.

That's the big appeal to this bike: covering ground and not being afraid of ending on a climb. And I can keep my heart rate elevated where I want it to be on a long ride, but avoid those moments where I absolutely destroy myself on climbs that leave my lungs burning and my quads cramping.

Overall, if you want more delivery from your bike while maintaining the same workout, look no further than the Turbo Levo. It's a great bike and makes climbing slopes a lot more manageable.
