All-new Turbo Levo SL II is a Stumpjumper Evo with a motor, and we love it
Amazingly adaptable geometry
Incredibly wide performance band
Rear tyre casing is inadequate
Specialized says not a single bolt was reused to make the new Turbo Levo SL 1.2 motor. The frame is all new too!
Peter WalkerMay 2023
Specialized’s new light eMTB rolls into the new season with a more powerful motor and more potent character, which should make it the ultimate trail bike.
Very harmonious overall concept
Wide range of applications
Massive feel-good feeling and top fun factor
Many customisation options through software features and geometry adjustments.
Short travel dropper post
Main battery can’t be removed

Compared to the outgoing Levo SL, Gen 2 is exactly what aggressive riders had been hoping Specialized would deliver.
Alan MuldoonMay 2023
If ever there was a bike that I totally misjudged, it was the original Specialized Levo SL. Launched in Feb 2020, it instantly had what appeared to be outdated geometry and sizing where the 35Nm motor seemed seriously underpowered too. Factor in the flimsy tyre casings and a Fox 34 fork, both fitted for impressive weight saving, rather than impressive performance, and I basically looked the other way. Not the most professional approach for a professional bike tester, I know, but the numbers simply didn’t add up. Want to know more about the updates in general? Find out more about the new Specialized Turbo Levo SL Gen 2 updates and range overview.

It was, after all, in a category all of its own. Twelve months on, Specialized had the feedback it needed and it was clear that the Levo SL frame was much more capable than the original build kit adorning it. As such, the fork got bumped up to a Fox 36, the shock grew a reservoir for better heat management, and the tyres got tougher casings. Sure, the overall weight crept up, but it was all lean muscle, which gave the Levo SL a swagger that it lacked previously. Now it had my full attention. I tested the Expert model in 2021 and the S-Works verison in 2022, and both times I was impressed by the overall feel of the Levo SL. The supple suspension response offers ridiculously high levels of grip and control, combined with the subtle frame flex that mirrors the response of an analog bike. Sprinkle on the assistance of the motor and the Levo SL totally won me over. Yes, the frame proportions were short-ish and a touch tall, and other brands were beginning to catch up and even exceed the power output of the SL motor, but in our …Continue reading »
More sizes, more adjustability, more travel, more support from the suspension, more power and more torque than before, Same price, same weight. 160Wh range extender included with S-Works bike.
Rear suspension isn’t as plush as before. It’s still a ton of money.
Mike KazimerMay 2023
The Levo SL now has more power, more torque, and a wide range of geometry possibilities.
