The Turbo Kenevo is the all-out Enduro/DH e-bike with the perfect blend of performance, handling, technology, and durability. The Kenevo gives you the power to ride more trails, lap after lap.
The Motor and Battery
Belt Drive Transmission
Paired with a magnesium sprocket, the belt delivers a silent, vibration-free, smooth ride.
A light and silent group that gears down the motor, optimizing it for the riders cadence.
36 volts of pure joy. It’s a light and powerful unit that uses Neodym magnets for weight and power.
The brain of the unit. It analyzes the rider input, torque, and cadence, and outputs the designated power through the trail-tuned software.
This communicates with the circuit board to determine how much power should be output. This power meter can also be paired with any ANT+ device, just like any other power meter on the market.
A robust and sturdy unit with an industry leading IP67 waterproof rating. Also features a trail display with a simple three-button mode adjust and on/off that is all displayed by 10 LED’s.
40 top-of-the-line cells are industry leading 18650 3.5mAh LEV. The best power to weight performance.
Battery Circuit Board
Protects each cell from over/under charging. ANT+ and Bluetooth chip allows for pairing with a device or Mission Control smartphone app where everything can be tuned, and many other features.
Mission Control App
The battery has ANT+ and Bluetooth connectivity in order to control the tuning from the Mission Control app. Now, you're able to totally control the battery and motor as well as upload routes for turn-by-turn navigation. You can even sync the battery with your route and it'll automatically adjust its output to ensure you have a charge for your full ride.
The new 2018 Turbo Kenevo is made to descend your most rocky, technical and gnarly trails. Again and again. Combining all of the best attributes of the Demo, Enduro and Turbo Levo, the Kenevo is made for epic downhill runs without a shuttle or chair-lift.
With the Turbo Kenevo FSR, first and foremost, you get all of the hallmarks that Specialized trail bikes are known for—a roomy top tube for an easy fit and better control, ultra-short chainstays for nimble handling, and a low bottom bracket that makes the bike feel glued to the trail. Top this off with 180 millimeters of front and rear travel, and you have a bike that's ready to send it off of anything.
Then comes an M5 aluminium frame and efficient and powerful Turbo technology, integrating a battery, and a new Turbo 1.3 motor that delivers 15% more power than the previous version. This also delivers a significant increase in efficiency, while an exclusive Rx Trail Tune at the motor smoothly and quietly brings this additional power to the pedals, making climbing the steepest of trails nearly effortless. The output is fully adjustable to conserve energy, as well, while the custom motor is also the only one on the market that features instant pedal engagement, so you get immediate power the moment you need it, and consistent torque throughout the entire cadence range.
At the battery, you'll find that it's fully integrated with the down tube and easily removable for quick charging or swaps. It has a lengthy lifespan for hitting long, out of the way trails and, along with the motor, it's strategically placed for optimal weight distribution. You'll also find the Mission Control App for full control of the Turbo technology, an integrated Trail Display with all of the ride metrics you need, a Trail Remote that lets your easily switch between modes without removing your hands from the bars, and a power meter that shows exactly how much power you're putting out vs. the motor.
The Turbo Kenevo FSR 6Fattie features a build spec that leaves nothing to be desired, with an Öhlins TTX22M coil shock, a RockShox Lyrik fork with 180mm of travel, SRAM's GX one-by groupset, and hand-built Roval alloy wheels. It also features 6Fattie wheel system that decreases deflection and dramatically increases traction, floatation, and fun over the trail.
The frame, with its 180mm of travel, is constructed from M5 Premium Aluminium, which is equal parts, strong, lightweight, and incredibly responsive. The design of the frame itself revolves around the Trail 6Fattie Geometry that includes all of their trail hallmarks, like a low-slung bottom bracket, roomy top tube, and ultra-short chainstays. Cable routing is all internal, including that of the Command Post IR, while the battery is fully integrated in the down tube and the motor is secured by a forged brace mount.
The custom Turbo 1.3 Rx Trail-tuned motor is built for the Kenevo and features a 15% power increase and a significant efficiency increase compared to the Turbo 1.2 motor. This successfully places it at the top of e-bike motor technology. It has many other features that no other e-bike can touch, like instant engagement, fantastic heat management, a double freewheel design that disengages the gear box when you hit top speed, and silent, smooth, and consistent output—even at max power.
The Turbo M1-504 battery features an integrated Trail Display and ANT+/Bluetooth® module with Mission Control App connectivity. It houses 504Wh of trail-taming juice, and is neatly integrated into the down tube.
