Specialized Turbo Levo 2022 off road test everything you need to know
The Specialized Turbo Levo 2022 e-bike is definitely a step forward compared to the past and, without a doubt, marks a new benchmark in the sector.
From a technical point of view, the new geometries and the differentiation of the diameter of the wheels are technical elements to which everyone will gradually adapt.
Ultimately, a full competitive e-mtb must come close to an enduro / cross bike.
In small steps and with the necessary differences, we are moving in that direction.
The development of the batteries and the electric motor is also a step forward, more power, more customizations, more autonomy.
We find the customization of the electric motor intervention useful, in addition to improving driving pleasure and general performance, it also allows you to better manage battery life.
The weight remains high, it remains a bike in which it is difficult to push without the aid of the electric motor. As always, stability and driving safety are at the top, but above all ease of driving.
Good general finishes.
It is clear that even in the face of first-rate technical content and excellent general performance, the price is very high and hardly justified by the objective qualities of the bicycle.
It is useless to deny it, you pay for the name and the novelty.
Overall an excellent e-mtb, perfect on the most daring descents, easy and safe to ride.
It costs a lot and will not have a simple maintenance, not to mention the possible maintenance and restoration costs of the electric motor and the battery.
If you think that the maximum is the initial expense, in our opinion, you are very wrong, you are only at the beginning of an indeterminate expense ...
It should be noted that the refined electronic management of the motor and the battery will require tools and qualified personnel for their eventual repair or simple diagnosis, another element to keep in mind.
The "do it yourself" or similar on this e-bike is very limited. Ultimately an ebike that approaches the concept of motorcycles or cars, you buy it and you are only at the beginning of a shopping, in which everything must be part of the "official service", I am not selling you a bike, but I am selling you an object that you bind to me ... Not everyone likes this thing.
These are our strengths and weaknesses of the Specialized Turbo Levo 2022. Benefits Build quality performance driving ease and safety Defects heavy weight price management and maintenance costs.
