Brose T motor

Charlie McCormick

The Brose T motor is focused on a "natural" feeling power delivery and hitting the perfect balance between power and efficiency to ensure maximum range. Brose uses the same motor for leisure, sporty and off road - the tuning is different to suit each experience. 

Raw power is exhilarating and addictive - but full power all the time can also meaning depleting your battery very quickly. Torque peaks at 90 nm, but in order to get the most from the T motor, your pedaling cadence needs to be over 70 rotations per minute. The T series is faster than the Bosch Active line, but slower than the Bosch Performance line.  Specialized uses the T motor, but calls it "Turbo 1.2" and there's an app that you can tune motor performance via bluetooth on your smartphone.  There are several versions of the T motor optimized for each use - street 20mph and street 28mph, and off road for steep climbs.
