Specialized Turbo Levo SL Comp Carbon Review


A hot topic in the MTB world, new e-bikes. As the technology constantly evolves, e-bikes are becoming more and more in line with the top level “normal” mountain bikes. They allow you to get further and ride for longer on your trail days. With the release of the new Specialized Turbo Levo SL Comp, heavy electric bikes are a thing of the past.

The Turbo Levo SL Comp is a new, lightweight breed of eMTB that harnesses the quick and lively ride of the Specialized Stumpjumper… and adds just enough power to introduce a whole new dimension of kick ass. The Turbo Levo SL Comp Carbon features a full carbon frame, full FOX suspension and a SRAM Eagle NX drivetrain.


It’s you, just going faster and further.

The Turbo Levo SL Comp is effectively a Stumpjumper that lets you embark on ridiculously long adventures with no fear of bonking and helps you snag three laps of your favorite trail instead of just one. Looking for a ton of power and range? Check out the original Turbo Levo and Kenevo models. Want a bike, on the other hand, that simply feels like you—a faster you, with the power to ride more trails, kind of you? That’s Turbo Levo SL.

Tune it to your style.

By connecting with the Specialized Mission Control App, you can tune the SL 1.1 motor to your riding style, record rides, and monitor the battery. The motor even has a built-in power meter that transmits to any ANT+ head unit. Don’t want to connect? No worries—the simple Turbo Connect Unit (TCU) on the top tube gives you all the control you need to just climb on and ride all day.


The Features:

150mm of suspension front and rear, courtesy of FOX’s RHYTHM 34 fork and Performance DPS shock. The Turbo Levo SL looks like a Stumpjumper and, out on the trail, feels like one too. That’s no mistake. Specialized aimed to build a Stumpjumper with a bit more boost to it and that’s exactly what you get—a Sidearm chassis with just the right amount of front-to-rear stiffness and 150mm of smooth, custom-tuned FOX front and rear suspension. To top it all off, we constructed this Turbo Levo SL chassis entirely from our light-yet-strong FACT 11m carbon.

The Turbo Levo Sl Comp’s lightweight SL 1.1 motor doubles your effort with as much as 240 watts of silent and powerful assistance to your pedals. The motor’s responsive torque curve delivers power perfectly in-tune with your normal riding cadence and leaves no resistance when you’re riding without power assistance.


Worried about running out of power? No problem. The Turbo Levo SL eats up big miles and long days. And if you’re looking for even more miles, the optional range extender boosts your range by another 50 percent. On top of all that, the Mission Control App can handle battery management automatically, ensuring your battery will last as long as you need it to.

The Verdict:

If you’re looking for a top end electric mountain bike without having to haul the heavy weight up & down the trail, then the Turbo Levo SL Comp could definitely be for you! We absolutely loved trying this bike and would love to pass on more information should you need it!
