On the US site you have to hit the "Shop Turbo Creo" button on the first screen, right below the "It's You, Only Faster" heading.It's there when you hit the 'Discover Creo' button but not if you just scroll down.
We have a long history of developing the world's highest performing road bikes. Tarmac, Venge, Roubaix, Allez, Diverge—each one dominates their respective category, featuring the best technologies in the industry. And while that's a tough palmarès to follow, the Turbo Creo SL redefines e-road...www.specialized.com
I'll be selling the Wabash to slightly offset the Creo's pain in the wallet. I'll be getting the SL Comp and the dealer will swap out the 28mm tires to 38mm. The Creo will replace the Wabash as my gravel bike. The only things missing will be the dropper post and the flared bars and I didn't really use either on the Wabash. This should be a nice light weight gravel bike, 17 lbs lighter than the Wabash.Dave you already have a Wabash and you're getting a Creo? Wow, lucky guy. I'd love to have both, we can't even get the Wabash in Canada.
The Wabash is a wonderful ebike. Relatively light (43lbs) for it's fairly low price (list $3,500). It's well built, comfortable to ride (if you prefer drop bars), very good motor (except it's slightly noisy) and has a 3 year warranty. With the speed, cadence, and torque sensors it's extremely smooth. There is no jerkiness at all. It reads input from the three at something like 10 times per second so it has instant response. I tend to stand on the pedals when climbing and the bike picks up the added pedal torque and seamlessly adds power. It is a class 1 so the motor cuts out at 20 mph but it does so smoothly that I never know it happened unless I glance at the speedo. I almost exclusively ride in the lowest boost setting (+ECO) and I could do over 100 miles on the 500W battery. Today I rode 52 miles with 1,600ft elevation gain and only used 26% of the battery.So what was your overall assessment of the Wabash? Never seen one in the wild, but they look pretty appealing.
This is what I'm doing. The dealer is doing a straight across swap from the road 28s to the EVO's 38 gravel tires. I originally wanted some 33 gravel tires but he didn't have many choices so I'm going with the 38s.I bought a Turbo Creo Comp Carbon a month ago thinking I would put the Evo tires on the included DT wheels...
Yes, these tires look like a great compromise. But I love the feeling of the super efficiency I get on my Roubaix with carbon Rovals and high pressure road tires. So I am trying to get that on my Creo.I'm currently running the 38 gravel tires on my Vado. As a roady at heart, I think they are perfect road tires. The centre smooth patch is good for smooth roads while they are also great on rough stone chip roads. Around here, the stone chip roads are the majority so personally I would just stick with the 'gravel' tires unless the extra watt of reduction is worth it to you.
I took two test rides before I made the commitment. I really had to concentrate to hear the motor noise and even then it's just a soft hum. Much quieter than the motor on my Yamaha Wabash and the Yamaha motors are billed as being quiet. I can't compare it to the Vado.Is the Creo motor louder than the Vado? I've never heard it in real life but on YouTube the motor seems louder than I expected for such a stealthy e-bike. Vado 5 vs. Aluminum Creo looks like a hard decision.
