Levo Expert
#1
Weighing in at 16.9 KG, this all new 2020 electric mountain bike from Specialized is the worlds lightest EMTB. With an all new motor doubling your pedal power up to 240 watts, an internal battery with 320Wh and an optional range extender, this ebike is carving out its own class of super light weight bikes.



Based on the Levo geometry and 150 travel at the front and rear but rides more like a Stumpjumper than an ebike.



Check the video above to watch my first ride review.



UK Pricing:



S-Works Levo SL – £10,999 Levo SL Expert – £7,499 Levo SL Comp Carbon – £5,999 Levo SL Comp – £4,999

Nice review Rob. Stunning quality on the video too.

Oh, the compromises but then anything pushing limits will play with those. The chain stay and the lower weight front sounds great. The reach, well I kinda like a long-ish reach but this isn’t that bike (needs an Evo version 🙈).

Can't watch the video yet, anyone seen the weight differance between carbon and alu? The £5k Alu option is actually quite tempting, Now I'm town, Comp or SL....

Other concern is no removable battery. I dont really want to leave the battery out in the cold over night so a little concern that. Certainly interesting.

Getting an understand as to why they dropped carbon comp on the regular Levo, was the same price as carbon comp SL.

I'd be interested to know the weight of the more affordable alloy versions.

WOW...looks like they are trying to recoup the development costs pretty quickly. FFS $26500 for an ebike with a little motor and Fox 34 forks

I have ordered and paid for the new limited edition Turbo Levo SL S-Works, as they are only making 250 of them. At $26500 Au, I consider it an investment and it will be locked in the vault at the bank, and viewed once a month on a Saturday, by appointment.

£11 grand for a fucking bicycle is reasonable???
Sub 17KG is impressive though.

Agreed, @Rob Hancill and @TheBikePilot you smashed the visuals out the park on this one.

They start at 5k which I think is reasonable, 11k erm not so much o_O

You best sign up then as the battery is removable

"You best sign up then as the battery is removable"

2 bolts to drop the motor. takes about 20 mins.

Can then fly with your bike and take 2 x 160Wh range extenders in hand luggage.

Nice design but I'm never that taken with most of the Specialized colour schemes, like the S-works one though :eek:

Not that groundbreaking really when you consider the cheaper entry level one is still only about 2kg lighter than the Focus Jam2 which has been around for a few years...

The killer feature for me would be if this is light enough for me to get up on the roof rack! I could then justify not having an eeb *and* an analogue bike... Just have one of these that I can easily take everywhere.

ROB could we get a video of you dead lifting the bike please? 10 reps, over the head...
