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.
With the Turbo Kenevo, you get all of the hallmarks that Specialized's 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. But then you top it all off with 180 millimeters of front and rear travel, and you get a bike that's ready to send it off of anything.
Then comes an M5 aluminum frame and a hyper efficient and powerful Specialized e-MTB technology—integrating a battery and a motor that delivers 15% more power than the older versions. This also delivers a 10% increase in efficiency, while our 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. Of course, 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 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 Specialized 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 you 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 Expert features a build spec that leaves nothing to be desired, with an Öhlins TTX22M coil shock, a RockShox Lyrik fork, SRAM's GX one-by groupset, and hand-built Roval alloy 27.5 wheels.
With 180mm of travel, the frame is constructed from M5 Premium Aluminum that's equal parts, strong, lightweight, and incredibly responsive. The design of the frame, itself, revolves around Trail Geometry that includes all of the 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 Wu, while the battery is fully integrated in the down tube and the motor is secured by a forged brace mount.
The custom Specialized 1.3 Rx Trail-tuned motor is built for the Kenevo and features a 15% power increase and a significant efficiency increase when compared to the Specialized 1.1 motor. This successfully places it at the top of e-MTB 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 Specialized M1-504 battery features an integrated Trail Display and ANT+/Bluetooth® module with Mission Control App connectivity. It houses 504Wh of trail-taming juice, is easily removable, and it's neatly integrated into the down tube.

The frame is the single most important factor in a bike's ride quality. While there are many other components involved,
the frame is what ties it all together and ultimately determines how well a bike rides. Specialized makes the highest quality, most sorted frame on the market. The fit and finish is excellent and they ride amazing.
