SPECIALIZED S-WORKS TURBO CREO SL DISC E-ROAD BIKE 2020
E-bikes are no fad, and with the S-Works Creo SL Disc E-Road Bike, Specialized have called upon the best tech from their impressive family of performance race conquering road bikes to deliver a bike that is lightweight, smoother and more capable than anything that has come before. For the discerning cyclist who wants to give their rides a boost without compromising on feel, or the familiar spriteliness that comes from a road bike, the proprietary drive system uses a smaller battery and motor that's still capable of delivering 240w of additional power. Whatsmore, the drive system is optimised for a cadence of up to 110rpm (significantly higher than other systems), so the ride characteristics more closely mirror a standard road bike.
The frame is engineered using FACT 11r carbon, which contributes greatly to keeping the overall weight down and stiffness high so that power is instantly available and transferred to the road, from both the motor and your legs. At the front, the bike uses Specialized's innovative Future Shock 2.0 suspension with a hydraulic damper that can precisely set compression with a simple knob on the top cap.
The responsive torque-curve silently delivers power in tune with your cadence, so that acceleration is smooth and controlled, and when the power assistance is switched off there's no additional drag. The range is quoted to be up to 80 miles, but that can also be extended by as much as 40 miles with the range extender that fits into the seat tube bottle cage, so you'll comfortably handle long days.
Based around the geometry of the Specialized Diverge, albeit with a slightly longer wheelbase, the bike also adopts a similar "go anywhere" attitude and can accommodate tyre clearance of up to up to 700C X 42mm or 650B X 48mm. Fittingly furnished with Shimano's top-line Dura-Ace Di2 gears, an XTR rear derailleur and 11-42 cassette ensures sharp shifting with plenty of range for hilly terrain.
Use the Specialized Mission Control App to dial in the perfect settings to customise your setup to suit preferred style or terrain, and it will also manage battery power so that you have juice all the way home.
