The Specialized Turbo Levo Comp Carbon wins shop bought E-Bike of the Year 2023 - MBR

Alan MuldoonMay 2023

Shortly after we finished our last E-Bike of the Year test, Specialized comprehensively updated its Turbo Levo with new sizing, geometry and a swish display embedded in the top tube. It went from a full 29er to a mullet bike, adopted Specialized’s S-sizing – where truncated seat tubes give more overlap between frame options – and gained adjustable geometry that can be set up anywhere from aggressive to full-on psycho. Looking to scope out other options? Check out our guide to the best electric mountain bikes to suit all budgets and riding preferences. Need to know: SWAT multi-tool is hidden in the fork steerer, making it easy to access Three head angles and two dropout positions give six different geometry settings 6 frame sizes with closely stacked seat tube lengths give you size options 700Wh battery slides in at the base of the down tube and is held in place by a single hex bolt As such, the gen 3 Levo has the joint slackest head angle on test at 63.7º, with the option to tweak it by 1º in either direction by changing the upper headset cup. Furthermore, you can choose between two dropout settings with either long chainstays and a low BB or short chainstays and a high BB. We chose the former as the 160mm cranks give stacks of pedal clearance. The Comp gets a full carbon frame, but Spesh also offers an alloy Turbo Levo with a very similar spec for about £1k less. There’s an 800g weight penalty, but considering it’s one of the lightest bikes on test, it’s no deal breaker. What about motor reliability? The previous gen 2 model was plagued with problems, but since Specialized reinforced the belt and recalibrated the software we’ve had no issues on two long term test bikes. Suspension While the more expensive models in the Turbo Levo range come with Fox 38 forks, the Comp makes do with the slimmer 36. These save a bit of weight but still provide ample stiffness. While the simple Grip damper lacks some support, adding an extra 10psi and running the sweep compression dial at 1 o’clock keeps the front end propped up. They were also incredibly sensitive – partly due to slightly loose bushings – which ensured loads of grip up front and a really lively feel. Sadly they are the older chassis design, thus bereft of the lower leg lubrication channels of the latest version. That pitter-patter response is mirrored perfectly by the Float X Performance shock out back. Superbly fluid, it tracked every bump and ripple as well as providing plenty of support to push against when we wanted to pop the Levo off the ground. Just keep on top of servicing, as the offset yoke puts an added strain on the shock internals. Components Specialized’s in-house wheels come fitted with inner tubes, but there are tubeless valves in the box, so upgrading only requires sealant. An added bonus is that fitting our Maxxis control tyres and ditching …Continue reading »
