Let's be real. Big descents are why we all ride mountain bikes but climbing back up on a big-travel trail bike? That's a different kind of "tingly feeling" and hell probably the reason why shuttling is even a thing. And while we're all for getting a hard workout in it's nice to have some extra power when you need it and there's only one bike that allows you to do that without sacrificing travel - the Turbo Kenevo Expert.
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 millimetres of front and rear travel and you get a bike that's ready to send it off of anything.
Then comes an M5 aluminium frame and our hyper efficient and powerful Specialized e-MTB technology and a motor that delivers 15% more power than the previous version. This also delivers a 10% increase in efficiency while our exclusive Rx Trail Tune at the motor smoothly and quietly brings this 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 entyre cadence range.
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 you easily switch between modes without removing your hands from the bars and a power metre that shows exactly how much power you're putting out vs. the motor.
