Get all of the pedal-assist features you desire at a price that lets you keep your daily cappuccino ritual with the Vado 2.0. Featuring many of the same characteristics as its more expensive siblings, albeit with a little less 'roar' to its motor, the Vado 2.0 is firmly rooted as the ultimate transportation tool for everything from grocery runs to commutes. Remember: Busy lives call for faster bikes.
Beginning with the integrated Specialized 1.2 motor, the Vado proves itself as the ultimate city bike. It features a silent design with our Custom Rx Street tune that takes the output and makes it the most usable for the urban environment—reacting to the amount of force you apply to the pedals. Think of it this way: The more power you put out, the more power the motor puts out, and this makes accelerations from a standstill both quick and efficient. The belt driven motor is also smooth, silent, and free of annoying vibrations. Perfect.
For the Vado 2.0, we developed a custom 460 Wh battery, the Specialized U1-460, that seamlessly integrates into the frame, is lockable, and is easily removable for simplified charging. Depending on your riding style, terrain, and setup, there's plenty of juice to take you to and from work, make a trip to the grocery store, or to even head over to that new café on the other side of town.
We also developed a custom 2.2-inch smart computer that lets you view your battery level and toggle various ride metrics such as speed, distance, and time. You can also peruse these screens via the custom handlebar remote without ever removing your hands from the bars.
To top off all of these innovative features, we chose a wallet-friendly build for the Turbo Vado 2.0. It features a range of Shimano 9-speed components and powerful hydraulic disc brakes that stop on a dime, so the Vado 2.0 is the perfect tool for your busy lifestyle.
