With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!


With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

2020 Specialized Turbo Vado 4.0 Step-Through Electric Bike Crimson

Season : 2020

Brand : Specialized

Code : 264283278119

The 2020 Specialized Turbo Vado 4.0 Step-Through Electric Bike in Metallic Crimson is custom tuned for city riding. It gives you an upright riding position but is sporty enough to get your around quickly. With an award winning Specialized pedal-assist electric motor you will be able to speed away from lights and up hills.

The Turbo Vado comes with a Specialized 1.2 motor. The 1.2 with Custom Rx Street Tune gives less torque but more efficiency in a near-silent operating design that makes it more usable for an urban environment. A custom Specialized U1-500 battery seamlessly integrates into the frame, is lockable, and easily removable for simplified charging. It has a 500 Wh capacity which gives plenty of range for running around town on as well as longer rides.

The new wired Turbo Connect Display (TCD-w) is the best way to view data on your Turbo. It not only displays important ride metrics (speed, cadence, rider power, distance, battery level, time, etc.), it also allows you to connect the latest version of the Mission Control App for an enhanced Turbo experience. The free app for iOS and Android phones, you easily customize motor parameters, control your range, record/upload rides, and perform basic system diagnosis.

The Vado 4.0 comes with fast rolling 700c wheels that have wide 47mm tyres with reflective sidewalls to soak up bumps and make you more visible at the same time. Reliable 10 speed Shimano gears and hydraulic disc brakes take care of stopping and going. The Vado 4.0 comes complete with mudguards an pannier rack, bell and front and rear lights all fitted to you are ready to go.


This bike is perfect for

Riders who want to get around town quickly with minimum effort. The quiet and efficient electric motor will help you along while the bike comes with all the racks, mudguards and lights you need already fitted. The Vado 4.0 comes with a bigger battery and more gears than the 3.0 so is great for hillier and longer rides.


Key Features

  • The Turbo Vado frame features an alloy step-through frame that's pretty light and super easy to get on or off of.
  • The Turbo Vado’s Specialized 1.2 E motor emphasizes efficiency and range. We also fully integrated it with the frame, and it's been custom-tuned for city riding. It intuitively reacts to the force of your pedalling, so the harder you pedal, the more power it delivers. And with an internal belt drive design, it does this without added vibration for the smoothest and most silent ride possible.
  • We made the custom 500 Wh battery to be fully integrated with the frame, removable for easy charging, and lockable for added security. It communicates with the display and has multiple modes to maximize the overall efficiency and range.

  • All 2020 model year Specialized bikes are ‘Beyond Gender’. Specialized are no longer making men’s and women’s bikes. Instead they are making their bikes in a bigger range of sizes and colours. This means that men and women get the same level of technology and performance from their bikes and gives everyone a better choice of paintjobs and sizing.

    “We design for the individual, and our philosophy is simple: Don’t make a difference where there isn’t one. When there is, we invest heavily in research and development. We’ll only make male- or female-specific products when there’s data to support the decision and a true performance benefit”

    One of the most sensitive areas on a bike is the saddle. Women generally have wider sit bones than men and work better on a 155mm saddle than a 143mm saddle. Women are generally also shorter than men. So Specialized will be specing their smaller bikes with a 155mm saddle and bigger bikes with a 143mm.
