Specialized 20 Vado SL 4.0 EQ


Introducing Vado SL - It’s You, Only Faster 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. Pedal, then go—over hills, past traffic. At 40% lighter than the average e-bike, it’s built to bring with you: up the stairs, down the hall, on the train, to the office, and everywhere you go. So Light You’ll Forget It’s Electric.
