Mellow to Mental.
Specialized has spent 40 years obsessively trying to create the ultimate riding Mountain Bikes and this year sees the release of the realisation of this search: the new Levo.
It sets the standard for full power ride quality. An integrated full carbon chassis development approach; fusing together 150mm of rear suspension, progressive geometry, sophisticated motor assist, and the advanced MasterMind Turbo Control Unit brings you a ride like no other.
It brings you MORE: More speed. More distance. More freedom. More trails-ridden, more pure stoke generated more unforgettable experiences.
Suddenly the impossible is possible.
Enabling you to ride better, stronger, farther, and faster than ever before.
The new Specialized 3rd Gen Levo merges unprecedented power and range with natural, confident handling for an unbelievable ride.
Levo has six geometry settings allowing easy adjustment to match your style and hone your performance in any terrain, from mellow fire roads to mental single-track:
1. Choose between three headtube angles from 63 to 65.5-degrees.
2. Bottom bracket height can be fine-tuned up or down by 7mm, thanks to the flip-chip located on the Horst pivot.
MORE SUSPENSION CONTROL
While the amount of suspension travel remains the same as previous models – 160mm front, 150mm rear – the way the rear suspension works has been completely revamped. The rearward axle path in the first portion of travel allows the rear wheel to “swing” back with the bump force, decreasing hangup and helping to carry speed. As the bike moves deeper into its travel, where pedaling isn’t typical, the forward axle path disconnects chain forces from pedaling forces, yielding stellar big hit performance.
THE POWER TO BEND SPACE AND TIME
The Levo empowers you to choose where to ride, and when you want to do it. Only got an hour? No problem, you can still bust out your favourite long loop and get back with time to spare. Want to find out what’s beyond that ridge on the horizon of your biggest ride? Go for it. Levo fuels your newfound superpower.
Equipped with a refined full power system 2.2 Motor, the 3rd Gen Levo can produce 90Nm of torque across the whole range which is plentiful for a day of exploring.
The refined 2.2 Motor has been equipped with a robust belt that has increased the durability of the motor significantly alongside a new firmware that delivers your power efficiently and more naturally.
To ensure that the motor stays water-resistant, a new hatch and improved battery cover have been fitted that is sealed with a quarter-turn lock and seal, to keep the moisture out. A new main harness has also been fitted which has the sole purpose of keeping water out which increases reliability – it does this thanks to 3 seals. The Specialized Levo has been put through testing of around 5,000km of riding, in the UK with all its recent wetness, and not a single drop of water was found in the electronic systems.
Across the carbon models, the Levos are fitted with 700Wh batteries which can provide up to 70km of riding. This should be enough to keep you out all day. In the other models of the Specialized Levo, to keep the weight and price down a 500Wh battery has been equipped – opening the joy of riding the Levo to everyone.
THE BRAIN BETWEEN YOUR LEGS
The MasterMind Turbo Control Unit (TCU) is the hardware and software that controls how the motor, battery, and bike interact with your ride. It allows real-time, on-the-go support tuning and displays all relevant data about your bike and ride. MasterMind TCU also enables over-the-air updates, making your bike better over time it also seamlessly integrates with the Mission Control App for advanced tuning, on-trail diagnostics, and much more.
