About the Specialized Turbo Creo SL Expert Gravel Bike

Specialized have a long history of developing the world's highest performing road bikes. Tarmac, Venge, Roubaix, Allez, Diverge—each one dominates their category, featuring the best technologies in the industry. And while that's a tough palmarès to follow, the Turbo CreoSL is sure to exceed your expectations of how an e-road bike performs. It's lightweight, smooth, capable, and even lively—all with the power to flatten mountains, laugh at headwinds, and go farther than you ever thought possible. And with this EVO model, you get larger tires, dropper post, and flared bars to take you wherever your heart desires. It’s you, only faster. The Turbo Creo SL Expert EVO features the Specialized Fact 11r carbon chassis. Yes, that’s the same one on the top of the range S-Works model, and you’ll also get the new Future Shock 2.0.For the spec, we included a 1x Shimano Ultegra Di2 build with an XT rear derailleur and an 11-42t cassette to take on shifting and braking duties, while Roval C 38 Disc carbon wheels get wrapped in 38mm Pathfinder Pro 2Bliss Ready tyres to keep you rolling worry-free and super-fast, no matter the terrain. And filling out the build are the Specialized Adventure Gear bars with 12 degrees of flare, a Future Stem Pro, an X-Fusion 50mm Manic Dropper seatpost, and the fan-favourite Body Geometry Power Sport saddle. The Specialized Creo realizes the dream of an e-bike which feels like any other high-end road bike, with its natural handling and manoeuvrability, but with a flick of a switch unleashes its power to become the turbo charged super car of the cycling world.

Key Features

  • FACT 11r carbon frame which not only makes the Creo literally kilograms lighter than competing e-bikes, giving it incredible range, it also encourages dancing on the pedals and diving into corners with its stiff agile design.
  • Future Shock 2.0 Fork reduces fatigue and increase speed, no matter the terrain. The 2.0 allows you to adjust compression from fully-open to stiff, while hydraulically-damped internals control rebound.
  • Specialized SL custom lightweight motor doubles your effort with as much as 240 watts of silent and powerful assistance to amplify your ride. The motor’s responsive torque curve delivers power perfectly in-tune with your normal riding cadence and leaves no resistance when riding unassisted
  • Battery anxiety? Not on the Creo SL. With up to 80 miles of range from the internal battery, the Creo SL eats up big miles and long days. And if that’s not enough, the optional range extender provides up to 40 additional miles of mountain-flattening power. More fun, more freedom
  • Mission Control App, you're able to tune the SL 1.1 motor to your riding style, record rides, and monitor the battery. The app can handle battery management automatically too, ensuring the battery will last as long as you need it to. The motor even has a built-in power meter that transmits to any ANT+ head unit. Don’t want to connect? No worries— the Turbo Connect Unit (TCU) on the top tube gives you all the control you need to ride.
  • Shimano Ultegra Di2 1x11 high performance drivetrain gives you the smooth and accurate electronic shifting experience with the gear range to go anywhere with or without motor assistance
