Turbo Levo Comp Carbon - Weight, Specs, Price
2022 Turbo Levo Comp Carbon (S3)
Specialized designed the Turbo Levo with more travel than a traditional trail bike, a reflection of the needs of the Turbo Full Power System motor. The mullet wheels, slack, adjustable headtube angle, and custom geometry tweaked for each size continue the tradition of an ultra-versatile trail bike. The Turbo Levo features an LCD for the controller on the top tube, handlebar-mounted buttons to adjust the assist in 10% increments, and up to a five-hour assist range.

2022 Specialized Turbo Levo Review - A TPC Rider's Quick Take
Does the surge of electric power compromise the authentic mountain biking essence? Read on for our quick-take review of the Specialized Turbo Levo.
- Seamless Integration
- The motor on the Turbo Levo is integrated into the frame so well that it's almost deceptive. This seamless design ensures that it doesn't scream e-bike but whispers it.
- Punchy Power Delivery
- Equipped with the Specialized 2.2 Rx motor, the Turbo Levo delivers power when you need it, ensuring climbs are easy and flat trails feel like descents.
- Balanced Weight Distribution
- Despite housing a battery and motor, the Levo's weight feels evenly distributed. This ensures that while you might be on an e-bike, it still handles with the agility and responsiveness of a traditional mountain bike.
- Battery Life Variability
- While the battery life is commendable, it can vary significantly based on riding conditions, rider weight, and power settings. Planning longer rides might require some forethought and battery management.
- Price Point
- The Turbo Levo is undeniably an investment. It's positioned at the higher end of the e-MTB spectrum, which could be a barrier for some.
- Price: $10,000 (Levo Expert)
- Purist's Dilemma
- While it offers an exhilarating ride, traditionalists might argue that the e-bike experience dilutes the raw, organic feel of mountain biking.
Our Bottom Line
The 2023 Specialized Turbo Levo is a technical marvel. It takes the e-MTB game and propels it to new heights, offering riders a chance to conquer trails they once deemed unattainable. It's a blend of power, aesthetics, and traditional mountain bike handling, delivering a ride that's thrilling and accessible.
For riders keen on expanding their trail horizons, looking to ride longer, or wanting assistance on those brutal climbs, the Turbo Levo is a compelling choice. It’s an e-bike, sure, but one that feels eerily close to its non-electric siblings. However, those looking for a pure, unassisted trail experience or are wary of the steeper price tag might pause. After a ride on the Turbo Levo, many might argue the experience is worth every penny.
TPC Contrarian Rider’s Take:
It's easy to hate e-bikes, but once you ride one, you get it. While they will never replace pure mountain bikes, the ability to crush a quick ride after work lets you enjoy the entire trail and get back in time for dinner. While an e-bike is not currently in my repertoire, I hope to have one soon.
