The Turbo Creo SL EVO is a versatile electric bike designed to take riders on adventures across a variety of terrains. It shares the same motor, battery, and frame as its road-oriented counterpart but offers enhanced tire clearance and adventure-ready components. 

The pinnacle build of the Turbo Creo SL EVO features a FACT 11r chassis and Future Shock 2.0 with a hydraulic damper, providing a smooth and controlled ride. The 1x build includes SRAM Red AXS eTap, a SRAM XX1 Eagle rear derailleur, and a 10-50t cassette, offering an exceptional gear range.

Equipped with Roval Terra CLX Disc carbon wheels and 38mm Pathfinder Pro 2Bliss Ready tires, the Turbo Creo SL EVO ensures worry-free and high-speed rolling on any terrain. The bike also features Roval Terra carbon bars with 12 degrees of flare, a S-Works Future Stem, a SRAM Reverb AXS dropper seatpost, and a Body Geometry S-Works Power saddle, providing comfort and control during long rides.

The Creo SL is known for being lightweight thanks to its light and stiff FACT 11r carbon frame. The SL 1.1 motor provides up to 240 watts of silent and powerful assistance, amplifying the rider's effort. With a responsive torque curve, the motor delivers power in sync with the rider's cadence, ensuring a seamless riding experience.

The internal battery offers up to 80 miles of range, with an optional range extender providing an additional 40 miles of power. The Specialized app allows riders to customize the motor settings, record rides, and monitor the battery, ensuring optimal performance and range. The motor also features a built-in power meter that transmits data to any ANT+ head unit.

The Future Shock 2.0 reduces fatigue and increases speed, offering more control via a knob atop the stem. The hydraulically-damped internals control rebound, while the new Smooth Boot, top cap, and Future Stem enhance the bike's aesthetic appeal.

The Turbo Creo SL EVO features an easily approachable gender-neutral geometry designed to accommodate all riders, offering comfort and agility on the road while delivering the attributes of a proper gravel bike, such as a long wheelbase, raked-out fork, and low bottom bracket for stability at high speeds and control in corners.
