Specialized Turbo Creo SL Expert: why you should want one
There are three groups of people who will love this bike. One is road bike riders who want some assistance every now and then – which is most of us, let’s face it. The other is those who have been thinking about buying an ebike, but been put off by heavy, ugly bikes. And the third is people who like owning the very best stuff, in every area of their lives.
Turbo Creo SL Expert, from the world’s leading road bike brand, combines everything Specialized knows about building road bikes, with some next-gen e-bike magic.
A lot of electric bikes claim to be light, but they just mean ‘light compared to other e-bikes’. Well the Creo SL Expert is LIGHT. The lightest bike in its class in fact.
Built around a FACT 11r carbon frame, this looks and feels like an elite road bike. You can ride it with minimal or even zero motor assistance and still zip through the miles.
However the really great thing about Specialized’s best ever electric bike – part of a growing family of e-bikes – is the lightweight SL 1.1 motor. This doubles your effort, with as much as 240 watts of silent and powerful assistance. Thanks to clever motor response, that extra power is delivered perfectly in tune with how you normally ride. Add the Mission Control App to your phone and you can really tune the motor to your riding style, too.
A lot of people are put off road bikes because they look literally like a pain in the ass, but Specialized’s more relaxed geometry and adjustable Future Shock 2.0 suspension means you’ll feel more speed and less fatigue, no matter what the terrain.
The Creo SL has a range of up to 80 miles and if that is not enough, you can add a further 40 miles with Specialized’s plug-in range extender battery (sold separately). The bike is also fully unisex. Specialized’s ‘Beyond Gender’ ethos found that, through the data from hundreds of thousands of bikes fits, gender-specific bikes are arbitrary and outdated. Instead, they create bikes to suit every body. It’s comfortable, snappy, and handles like a dream.
