SPECIALIZED S-WORKS TURBO LEVO

The S-Works Turbo Levo takes the company’ leading carbonfibre frame construction, SRAM groupset and 150mm of suspension travel, and pairs it with a 700Wh battery and 250w motor. Each pedal stroke is seamlessly boosted by the e-drivetrain allowing you to punish the dirt faster and for longer. specialized.com $15,000
