We're all for pumping out hot laps hour-after-hour, but climbing back to the top, or burying your pride and getting a shuttle ride, tends to get old. Either your legs start bubbling with lactic acid like a marshmallow in a camp fire, or you're forced to miss the "perfect run" when it's your turn to drive. We get it, and that's why we've developed the Turbo Kenevo Comp. Best-in-class technology gives it the power to ride more trails, all while having the modern geometry and travel found you need for a big day out.
With the Turbo Kenevo, you get all of the hallmarks that our trail bikes are known for—a roomy top tube for an easy fit and better control, ultra-short chainstays for nimble handling, and a low bottom bracket that makes the bike feel glued to the trail. But then you top it all off with 180 millimeters of front and rear travel, and you get a bike that's ready to send it off of anything.
Then comes an M5 aluminum frame and our hyper efficient and powerful Specialized e-MTB technology—integrating an easily removable battery and a new Specialized 1.2E motor. This also receives our exclusive Rx Trail Tune that smoothly and quietly brings additional power to the pedals, making climbing the steepest of trails nearly effortless. Of course, the output is fully adjustable to conserve energy, as well, while the custom motor is also the only one on the market that features instant pedal engagement and consistent torque throughout the entire cadence range.
At the M1 Series battery, you'll find that it's fully integrated with the down tube and easily removable for quick charging or swaps. It has a lengthy lifespan for hitting long, out of the way trails and, along with the motor, it's been strategically placed for optimal weight distribution. You'll also find our Mission Control App for full control of the Turbo technology, an integrated Trail Display with all of the ride metrics you need, a Trail Remote that lets your easily switch between modes without removing your hands from the bars, and a power meter that shows exactly how much power you're putting out vs. the motor.
The build of the Turbo Kenevo Comp is the perfect blend of performance, durability, and value. It features a RockShox Yari RC fork and FOX Van RC Coil rear shock (each with 180mm of travel), a mix of Shimano XT and SLX drivetrain components, and wide alloy rims.
