The innovations on the Specialized Turbo Creo 2
The new Specialized Turbo SL 1.2 engine
The improved efficiency of the system allows the use of smaller, lighter batteries with the same range. This was achieved by optimizing power transmission at around 90 pedal revolutions per minute. This is intended to provide a particularly natural driving experience. With the new app, the drive system can be individually adjusted and tuned depending on your preferences.
Frame and geometry for every terrain
In addition to the drive, the frame with its geometry is of course one of the most important elements. Here too, Specialized has done a lot of tinkering and tinkering to be able to present this result. It all started with a Fact 11r Carbon and a new geometry that was intended to be ideal for relaxed day tours, but also wild gravel adventures and everything in between. Compared to its predecessor, the bike features a longer stack, a flatter head tube angle, a deeper bottom bracket, a shorter stem and wider tires. This means that the bike should remain pleasantly stable even on uneven terrain and support the rider in all situations.
Numerous mounting points for front and rear luggage racks and lowriders have also been planned for the new Specialized Turbo Creo 2. Furthermore, mudguards for tires up to 47C can be attached to enable more everyday suitability.
More comfort thanks to tire clearance and Future Shock 3.0 system
The tires can still have a significant influence on the character of a bike. Despite all the technical innovations, they didn't want to limit themselves and offer a wide range of options to suit individual needs. With a tire clearance of up to 2,2 inches, there is hardly anything in the Turbo Creo 2's way.
To further support the comfort and all-round capabilities of the new Creos, the models were equipped with the new Future Shock 3.0 system. The gentle 20 mm travel of the hydraulic damping on the handlebars reduces shocks by more than 53%, which means a smoother and faster ride and can be worth its weight in gold on long tours.
All S-Works and Expert models come ex works with the Future Shock 3.3, which allows the spring to be adjusted directly on the bike and without tools. The Comp models come with the Future Shock 3.2 system, which can be adjusted with a little more effort and always provides the same suspension while driving. A factory-fitted lowerable seat post complements the high-quality comfort of the new Specialized Turbo Creo 2 models.
