The power to ride more trails.

If speed is at the top of the list, there's no better tool than the Women's Turbo Levo Hardtail 29. It takes the fun, efficiency, and speedy characteristics of Specialized 29er hardtails and adds Turbo technology—cranking up those numbers on the radar gun.

First and foremost, it has all of the speed and nimble handling that hardtail trail bikes are known for—an easy fit, ultra-short chainstays for nimble handling, and a low bottom bracket that makes the bike feel glued to the trail. Then comes the efficient and powerful Turbo technology, along with an integrating a battery and motor. This year, however, you'll see some updated software that increases the motor's efficiency with the M5 Premium Aluminum frame. The exclusive, Rx trail-tuned motor smoothly and quietly brings this additional power to the pedals to make climbing the steepest of trails nearly effortless. The output, meanwhile, is fully adjustable in order to conserve energy. Lastly, the new custom Turbo 1.2 motor features instant pedal engagement, so you get immediate power the moment you need it, and consistent torque throughout the entyre cadence range This makes for the most efficient use of power on the trail, and more importantly, it creates the feel of a capable trail bike.

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, is strategically placed for optimal weight distribution. The Mission Control app, meanwhile, gives you full control of the Turbo technology, while an integrated Trail Display shows all of the ride metrics you need. Also included is a Trail Remote that lets you easily switch between modes without removing your hands from the handlebars, plus a power meter that shows exactly how much power you're putting out vs. the motor.

This version has a durable build kit, with a 120mm RockShox Recon RL fork up front (size-specific), Shimano Deore brakes, and a one-by Shimano groupset controlling shift and drivetrain duties. There's also an explicit focus placed on making this bike purpose-built for female riders, so you'll find that every touchpoint of the bike has been specifically designed for women. 

  • M5 Premium Aluminum construction is paired with Women's Trail 29 Geometry and a hardtail design to support a ride that provides slack, confident handling, maximum speed and efficiency, and tons of speed. The frame also features an integrated battery mount at the down tube for fast and easy battery removal, plus a forged and braced motor mount at bottom bracket. This keeps the aesthetic streamlined and the weight distribution perfectly balanced. Lastly, you'll find fully enclosed internal cable routing for a clean look and even cleaner cables, and internal routing for an alloy dropper post.
  • The Specialized 1.2 is custom built for the Levo Hardtail and features the exclusive Rx Trail Tune that gives you the power to explore new trails. 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 Specialized MI-460 battery features an integrated Trail Display and ANT+/Bluetooth® module with Mission Control App connectivity. It houses 460Wh of trail-taming juice, and is neatly integrated into the down tube.
