Could the Levo SL be your perfect E-MTB? Here’s our complete rundown on what sets Specialized’s new electric rig apart from its predecessors…
Levo SL | The Specs
It’s all about the ride
When everything works just right, it’s almost as if a bike disappears when you ride it. Specialized stripped away the mass to keep the Levo SL lean and responsive. It’s tough enough to withstand heavy trail abuse, but more than light enough to nail tricky manoeuvres. Its dialled geometry, kinematics and shock tuning leave nothing desired.
Frame of reference
Levo SL’s strategic carbon fibre layup provides super-responsive chassis stiffness and a lively, precise ride feel. Specialized have tuned the entire chassis – front end, rear end, and the link that unifies them – as a single unit to minimize lateral flex under pedalling and harness every bit of pedal force.
Geometry of control
The cockpit centres you in the bike, optimizing traction and corner control. The low bottom bracket, slack headtube angle, and reduced fork offset keep things stable in the rough, all whilst giving you the freedom to destroy the turns. The head angle can be personalized to your own preference, from 63, 64.25 & 65.5 degrees.
No dead weight
The new Levo SL is greyhound lean and almost telepathically responsive. Kitted out with a curated component selection that’s light, yet capable – for true trail riding. Put it all together and you get the benefits of amplification along with benchmark handling.
A 29er in the front ensures stability and confident performance in even the most hectic terrain, while a 27.5” rear wheel allows for a compact chainstay and super responsive behaviour.
If you prefer the rolling and traction benefits of a 29er rear wheel, just flip the pivot link chip and mount the big wheel.
Levo SL | The Tech
Turbo Operating System
Specialized’s seamlessly-integrated operating system delivers unmatched performance across torque, range, ride feel, ride quality, power, reliability and rider experience. It’s the invisible hand that enables you to do more, know more, go farther, feel stronger, and have more fun.
Specialized SL 1.2 Motor
The all-new Specialized SL 1.2 motor is whisper quiet, boasts unmatched smoothness, and delivers 43% more torque (50Nm), and 33% more power (320 Watts) than its predecessor. Resulting in “2x You” performance; it’s you pedalling, but a side of you only a Levo can truly bring out.
Go deep range
Levo SL features a premium, high-quality, and seamlessly integrated 320Wh battery pack. Combined with the efficient motor, you’re set up for long, epic rides of up to 5 hours (in Eco Mode). For longer rides, just slide the 160Wh Range Extender (sold separately) into your bottle cage – for an additional 50% of range.
Specialized’s most advanced and intuitive e-bike control unit. Connecting the bike, the Turbo OS, the Mission Control App as well as the rider, all in a protected and easily visible display. MasterMind TCU enables over-the-air updates so your bike will get even better over time. With MicroTune, the power to fine-tune power output levels in real-time is at your fingertips, optimizing range management and performance.
Mission Control App
Mission Control App and lets you personalize your motor characteristics with MicroTune, Support & Peak Power. You can say goodbye to range anxiety with Smart Control, and even protect against thieves with the Turbo System Lock.
