2021 Specialized Turbo Vado SL 5.0 EQ

There's no other e-bike out there with ride quality, range, and power like
this, at a weight that's light enough to carry. The Turbo Vado SL 5.0 EQ is
best for your daily commute, quick errands and getting around town. Extra-
bright, built-in lights in front and back mean you'll see and be seen. DRYTECH
fenders keep water and road spray away, and a standard rear rack is always
ready for your bags and panniers. This is your go-to for local transportation.
