The 2021 Specialized Turbo Como 3.0 Electric Hybrid Bike is designed to combine speed and comfort. The low step frame makes getting on and off the bike and putting a foot down super easy and when you are ready to go the electric motor will help you get up to speed. The riding position on the Como is a very traditional upright one, so it is easy on your back and you have great visibility.
The Turbo Como uses a specially tuned version to the Specialized’s own 1.2 motor. The 1.2 E 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.
For the Como 3.0 Specialized developed a custom U1-460 battery that seamlessly integrates into the frame. It is lockable but easily removable for charging.
This model comes with smooth and fast-rolling 700c wheels have been paired with cushy 45mm tyres so it can roll over most cracks bumps and holes with ease. It also comes with reliable Shimano 9-speed gears, powerful hydraulic disc brakes, pannier racks, mudguards and bright LED lights at the front and rear of the bike so you are ready to ride.
This bike is perfect for
Riders who want a comfortable bike for getting around town that also has the extra boost of a smooth and quiet electric motor. The Como 3.0 comes with all the bits you need including racks, mudguards and lights.
As electric bikes have become more sophisticated it’s important to stay on top of updates. Just like your home computer or smart phone regular updates are now released for most electric bike systems. If you buy a bike from Cycles UK we will do electric bike updates and diagnostics you need free of charge.
Electric bike updates can help to improve battery life, tweak how the motor works and fix bugs and problems. Most systems will require you to plug your bike into some specialist software at an authorised dealer. At Cycles UK we are authorised dealers for top electric bike brands including Specialized, Trek, Orbea, Whyte, Cannondale and Raleigh. As a result our stores have the software and hardware to run updates on all the major electric bike systems including Bosch, Shimano and Ebikemotion.
We now provide free updates and diagnostics for life on any electric bike purchased from Cycles UK.
Mission Control is a free app created by Specialized to work with their Turbo electric bikes. The app is exclusive to Specialized and unlocks a lot of features which you can’t get on other electric bike systems. Specialized recommend that everyone who has one of their electric bikes should pair it to Mission Control.
Mission control has been around for a few years and has gradually been evolving and improving. It covers four main areas:
Electric bikes have really come into their own in the last couple of years. Thanks to advances in electric bike motors and batteries. A couple of bike manufacturers, most notably Specialized, are making their own electric bike motors. The vast majority of bike companies are using the same motors. So, you will find exactly the same electric motor being used on bikes from different brands and at different price points. In this guide, we’ll take you through the main types of electric bike motors. Look at the differences between the most commonly used brands.
Electric bikes tend to either come with a hub motor or a mid-drive motor. Mid-drive motors sit where the cranks and bottom bracket are on a bike and drive the cranks and chain around. Hub drive motors sit in the middle of the wheel and drive the wheel directly. Hub drive electric bikes are cheaper but less efficient, and less smooth, to ride.
Specialized is one of the best-known quality bike brands in the world. Started by a group of riders in 1974. A fact which has guided their decision making ever since.
" Made for riders, by riders."
They strove to make the best quality tires when quality tyres weren't around. When people wanted to ride cruisers in the dirt, they made the first production mountain bike. When roadies wanted to go faster, Specialized doubled down on carbon and built their own wind tunnel.
Bikes like the Allez, Rockhopper and Stumpjumper have developed followings and reputations of their own. Specialized has a reputation for making high-end, high-quality bikes. Specialized bikes always look great with high-quality paint and sensible sizing hel0s you get the right bike each time. If you buy a Specialized bike you can be guaranteed it will do what it is supposed to and will last.
