Features

The Vado 1 features a suspension fork to take the edge out of those pesky potholes, Shimano 8 speed Acera gears and hydraulic disc brakes. Stout thru axles make the bike perform better, and flat fixes a breeze. The Vado 1 is good on hills with the smooth and efficient Brose CB, (1.2E). With a 400 watt hour battery, you can expect decent range even at high assistance levels most of the time, or at lower modes to squeeze out major miles. There's plenty of juice to take you to and from work, a trip to the grocery store, or even to that new café on the other side of the city.
