Features

No matter where you're going, you'll get there faster and in style with the commute ready Turbo Vado 5.0. Sporty Handling with fitness style geometry for nimble yet confident steering and a relaxed riding posture, with low entry options for an easy mounting step thru frame. It features a suspension fork to take the edge out of those pesky potholes, top of the line Shimano 11 speed Deore XT gears and quad piston hydraulic disc brakes. Stout thru axles make the bike perform better, and flat fixes a breeze. The Vado 5 is a hill crusher with the very powerful Brose S motor, (1.3) which has a higher max torque, max watts, and better heat management and efficiency than its predecessors. With above average 604 watt hour battery, you can expect excellent 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.

The new Turbo Connect Display (TCD) displays basic ride metrics (speed, cadence, power, battery level, and time), but it also lets you toggle between modes. You can connect via Bluetooth®, to the Turbo Mission Control 2.0 App, put in your destination in the mapping feature and control performance aspects of your motor. But best of all is the “Smart Control” technology where it uses an algorithm that automatically optimize motor power for the trip time or distance you are planning.

The Vado 5 comes with fenders for all weather riding, a Racktime compatible rear rack, and a powerful Supernova front light with an excellent road ahead focused beam pattern. Popular upgrades include the Kinekt Body Float suspension seatpost and Ortlieb waterproof panniers.
