Delivery Icon

We deliver! Just say when and how.

Como SL is a sporty and comfortable electric cruiser with an easy-to-step-through frame that makes hopping on a breeze. So whether you’re heading to the beach or downtown for happy hour, the freedom to ride is just a pedal stroke away.

These electric cruisers prioritize comfort and ease of use. The Como SL also has fenders to keep you clean and dry, plus a front basket to help transport gear, groceries, or Fido. Fix two panniers on the rear rack-fenders for extra cargo and hit the lights for visibility day or night. It has everything you need to hop on and go.

TURBO SL: The heart of the Como SL is its Turbo technology, an advanced and integrated electric bike system that delivers an unequaled combination of power, natural feel, anti-theft functions, training tips, and a full-function bike computer.

COMFORTABLE AND CONFIDENT: Body position and handling are optimized to deliver unsurpassed riding comfort, confidence, and control. Powerful hydraulic disc brakes reign in your speed, while larger tires provide maximum traction for turning and stopping.

EASY TO USE: The Como SL's sleek design and step-through frame make the bike an approachable, functional everyday e-bike. With a Nexus Internal Gear Hub providing smooth shifts, the Como SL is easier to use than any other e-bike and is our lightest option yet.

LIGHTWEIGHT: Need to lift your bike onto a rack, carry it up a flight of stairs, or get around town? Thanks to our category-leading lightweight Turbo SL technology, optimized frame materials, design, and specifications, you won't break a sweat.

The speed limit at which the motor will stop supporting may vary significantly by region and is based on local requirements. It may also affect range: a higher speed limit may result in less range.

Excellent product

Nearly 100 miles on, I'm in love with my Como SL 4.0. After comparison shopping between different Specialized models and other Comos, I decided the SL 4.0 would be the best fit for me for my first ebike. I'm a 44 year old female with little experience with bicycles besides my younger years, but I needed something to get me up and out of the house and raise my heartbeat. This bike has been a blast to do just that. I live in NW Iowa, where we're known for lots of wind, so I like that I can use turbo mode for windier days, uphill, or when I want to get somewhere quickly. When I want to ride it like a non-ebike, I can do that, too, changing effortlessly with a push of the button on the downtube. I store the bike in my home, and I have no problems lifting up and down the four steps of my deck. I don't regret purchasing this model one bit. It's perfect for my rides, which include city roads and paved bike trails.

Just Right

Very comfortable and practical ebike. Light enough to easily lift onto hitch mounted bike rack. I was disappointed that the battery was not removable but have found it really isn’t a problem. The handlebars are not round so bar mounted accessories can be a challenge. The “Mission Control “ app is handy and pretty easy to manage. The power control buttons and power assist panel are dimly lit and difficult to see in sunlight. Very fast in 5th gear using “Turbo” level but rarely use “Turbo”. We have two of these fine ebikes and they are just right for us.
