Maybe a gravel ride or some easy single track MTB riding? If so, how did that go?
I too regularly ride my V5 on local gravel back roads. The tires could use more grip where the gravel is loose but other than that, no issues. I do keep the tire pressures at the lower end of the tire ratings when I know I'll be on gravel for more than just a mile or two. Seems to help with wash boarded sections.i ride mine daily on gravel forest preserve trails, no issues at all. As the prior post noted, I wouldn’t use mine like a mountain bike. I’ve also ridden the Turbo Levo many times, which is fantastic on mountain bike trails.
A good Ebike E50 or E75 rated off-road tire will make a huge difference in grip and control.Maybe a gravel ride or some easy single track MTB riding? If so, how did that go?
The Vado doesn’t have room for much more than the stock 38s though does it?A good Ebike E50 or E75 rated off-road tire will make a huge difference in grip and control.
Take a look at the Schwalbe EMTB tires... the Marathon Plus and Smart Sam both have a center rib for smooth on-road riding.

Makes me think, if you already have a Creo, should skip Vado and got for Levo.Try doing that with the 48T chainring on the Vado 5.0. Besides, it is not the matter if Vado can climb (because it can). What really matters if how Vado handles rough terrain. The answer is: it hardly can do it.
