Specialized is the top US bike brand for a reason - a laser focus on ingenious innovations, now breaking new ground with eBike families - the sporty Vado, upright Como, and off road Levo. Exclusives include the mission control bluetooth app - choose your destination, and it selects your power level so you don't run out of juice.
The Como has surprising hill climbing ability, and the range is good considering how much power is delivered . It stands out as a top performer in it's price & category, probably due to the new Brose S motor.
Conventionally an upright comfort bike would have a heavy front suspension fork - on the Como cushiony 2.3-inch 650b tires actually do an amazing job rolling over most bumps and holes smoothly - so the Como is relatively light. Also powerful hydraulic disc brakes, reliable 9-speed Shimano shifting.
Beginning with a completely redesigned and integrated Specialized 1.2 motor, they developed a custom 2.2-inch computer with the German powerhouse, BLOKS. connect, via Bluetooth®, to the Turbo Mission Control App for full control over your Como .
Aka Specialized 1.2, it provides up to 28 mph assistance. Noticeably peppier than competing systems, the Brose T motor’s "natural" feeling power delivery hits the perfect balance between plenty of giddyup and efficiency to ensure great range. Torque peaks at 72nm and 520 watts, beating out both the Shimano Steps city motors and the Bosch Active line, and on par with the Bosch Performance street motors,
Shadow + puts the most tension on the derailleur of any shift system, meaning less chain drops and no chain slap. Shimano's Deore series has been on the market for more than 30 years and has been constantly optimized and enhanced. It features impressive, tried-and-tested technology and is extremely reliable, well-engineered and easy to use. Shimano Deore gears have proven their worth for many decades and are indispensable premium components even in the E-Bike sector. Shimano Shadow + is featured on 10-speed Deore or 11-speed Deore XT - with a lite version on Alivio 9 speed.
The norm for most bikes, with great ratio range, lots of low speed torque as well as top end gears for high speeds, and easy access to service and change flats. A more dynamic, snappier shifting performance. For eBikes shifting over the entire range when the bike is at rest can be a problem, a challenge less active cyclists face at first. They can get your trousers dirty if you aren't careful. Good quality gears can last with frequent maintenance, but will wear out faster than internal gears and belt drives.
Hydraulic disc brakes will have the most stopping power in any weather conditions, and are standard equipment on most eBIkes because of the added weight and speed on an electric bike. Not all disc brakes are created equally - the size and quality of the disc (or rotor), as well as the quality of the pad material can have a significant impact on braking performance.
