ebike Specialized Turbo Levo Comp Alloy 2023 Road test review Build quality
The Specialized Turbo Levo Comp Alloy 2023 has a high cost, but is the entry level, or almost, of the Turbo Levo range.
The high price is partly justified by its build quality and technology, even in this version with an aluminum frame.
The availability of sizes is excellent, as is the 700wh battery.
The Specialized motor is also very good.
The general build quality is therefore very good, but the price remains slightly high, in objective terms.
The competitors however do not do much better ...
ebike Specialized Turbo Levo Comp Alloy 2023 Road Test Review Frame
The frame of the Specialized Turbo Levo Comp Alloy 2023 is a small work of art, very well done, with modern geometries, a quality of construction that is truly at the top of the category.
The e-bike is expensive but at least everything is well done and the frame is no different.
For us, the real plus is the large number of sizes, we don't give up, everyone has their own right frame, even with customized components and suspensions.
Motor and integrated battery are the classic Specialized products, well made, powerful, with good autonomy and good reliability.
The frame, therefore, is at the top of the aluminum frames and is better than many carbon fiber frames.
ebike Specialized Turbo Levo Comp Alloy 2023 Road Test Assemblies Review
The range of assemblies of the Specialized Turbo Levo 2023 is wide and the Alloy version is available in two assemblies, the best one is the Comp, which has a "basic" assembly, but still of good quality.
The value for money remains within the sufficiency, but nothing is missing that is really needed.
Everything is well done, not very light, but with e-bikes the weight takes a back seat.
ebike Specialized Turbo Levo Comp Alloy 2023 Road test Comfort review
With 150/160mm suspension, comfort is certainly high, it's impossible to ask for more.
That said, ride comfort is excellent.
ebike Specialized Turbo Levo Comp Alloy 2023 Road Test Review Guide
The Specialized Turbo Levo Comp Alloy 2023 is not a light e-mtb, but no e-mtb is pleasant to pedal without the thrust of the electric motor.
In fact, the dynamic behavior highlights excellent stability and great ease of driving.
The balance of the frame allows you to climb even technically difficult routes with extreme ease, with intuitive and easy control of the mtb.
Apart from the weight, which you quickly get used to, there are no particular differences with the lighter and more expensive Turbo Levo e-bike models.
Even compared to the muscular version, the behavior is not so different, indeed an untrained athlete will find the e-mtb much easier and more fun to ride.
This is because you can concentrate more on driving.
Therefore, traction uphill and where there is little grip is excellent.
Excellent stability and safety downhill, where performance is really excellent in absolute terms.
Easy to drive on the plains, where ride comfort and good overall performance are appreciated.
Excellent braking and good suspension.
An e-mtb suitable for any route, excellent downhill, but valid on the flat and uphill.
The chassis is really excellent, manageable but without being nervous and with unpredictable reactions.
An easy e-mtb for the novice, but also with excellent potential for the more expert biker.
ebike Specialized Turbo Levo Comp Alloy 2023 Road test review Performance
The general performance of the Specialized Turbo Levo Comp Alloy 2023 is very high, only partially limited by the overall weight of the bicycle.
But if we make a comparison with the top-of-the-range versions, it certainly isn't worth spending double the money to get a little more.
Be careful not to exaggerate with the thrust of the electric motor, the autonomy is good, but if you exaggerate you risk being left stranded easily.
The autonomy is still valid and allows you to exceed even 100km quite easily.
Thinking of pedaling without the help of the electric motor is something to do only in an emergency.
The best thing is to always have a minimum of thrust, so as to make the bicycle light and easy.
Using the maximum thrust of the engine only for the sections where you want to be really fast.
Overall it is a competitive ebike in terms of performance.
In absolute terms, however, it is very good downhill and just heavy uphill and in the plains.
But the lighter rivals aren't faster, they can only have a little more range because the electric motor is used less and just more thrust in the first pedal stroke.
Minimal and hardly justifiable differences given the prices.
ebike Specialized Turbo Levo Comp Alloy 2023 Road test review Pros and cons
The Specialized Turbo Levo Comp Alloy 2023 demonstrates how the ebike is very valid and of good overall quality.
It has an excellent frame, available in many sizes and a good assembly.
The motor and battery are just as good.
It's not cheap and it's not very light.
A beautiful ebike, concrete, effective and efficient.
It also holds its value well on the used market and proves to be superior to many other ebikes with a carbon fiber frame.
So expensive, but good e-bike.
