Meet the Turbo Creo SL, the first ever Turbo Road Bike. It delivers a light and lively road bike feel for the performance rider with mountain-flattening power, range for epic rides, and seamless connectivity. No system on earth could create the ride we wanted, so we built one from the ground up. It’s a mighty cocktail of power, range, ride quality, weight, and efficiency that makes you a monster in the saddle, with the versatility that allows it to easily transition from road to gravel. You’ll be riding farther and faster than you ever imagined, all with a real road bike feel. The Turbo Creo SL doesn’t just redefine the e-road category, it creates a whole new sport. It’s You, Only Faster.
The Turbo Creo SL isn’t just the lightest e-bike in its class, it’s literally kilograms lighter than the competition at just 12.2kg for the S-Works Creo SL. We made the frame out of our FACT 11r carbon, and we designed it to handle like a Tarmac to inspire dancing on the pedals and diving into corners. And with the Future Shock 2.0, and its adjustable damper, we suspend you, not the bike to deliver more control, confidence, and comfort.
Smooth. Quiet. Powerful.
Designed in California and engineered in Switzerland (the heart of the e-bike revolution), the new Specialized SL 1.1 represents the ideal performance e-road bike motor.
The Specialized SL 1.1 motor is ultralight and whisper quiet as it doubles your effort with silky smooth power delivery—power that feels like it’s straight from your legs. No unnatural power curve, lurching, or motor jumps. It delivers up to 240 watts of power that are in sync with your cadence all the way to 28 mph for real-world road riding. And when you want to pedal unassisted, there’s no drag holding you back.
With up to 80 miles of range from the internal battery alone, the Turbo Creo SL lets you enjoy the power, not worry about the range. Our Range Extender, included with the S-Works build and available aftermarket on other models, provides up to 40 additional miles of mountain-flattening power. The internal battery offers 320Wh, while the Range Extender is a 160Wh battery. The Turbo Creo SL’s internal battery can be charged in as little as 2 hours and 35 minutes. Every rider and every ride are different, so we created a Turbo Creo SL Range Calculator to help you determine exactly how far you ride.
|Our Mission Control app has logged millions of miles because it offers an intuitive and seamless way to unleash your Turbo. Each of the motor’s three assisted riding modes can be tuned almost infinitely for both peak and sustained power delivery. Mission Control can even manage battery power automatically with Smart Control. Just tell it how far or how long you want to ride, and it will ensure you have the battery power to get there. It can record your ride, send it to third-party apps, and it even has an integrated power meter that can send your power numbers to an ANT+ head unit. While seamless connectivity comes standard with the Creo SL, connecting with Mission Control is always optional. The Turbo Connect Unit on the top tube gives you all the control you need to ride.|
