Delivery Icon

We deliver! Just say when and how.

The Turbo Tero means one thing: you're going to need a bigger map. With ride anywhere range, this adventure-ready suspension electric bike is our go-anywhere, over anything, with everything vehicle. Plus, with enough storage space to pack in a few backcountry comforts, you'll discover new adventures easier than ever. The only question left to ask is where to?

Looking for a commuter you can take touring? A touring bike that can haul cargo? This is it. In a word, the Tero is unstoppable. Off-road capable wheels and tires, powerful hydraulic disc brakes, and a full-on suspension fork can transform every ride into an adventure, whether you’re on dirt roads or cruising through the concrete jungle.

POWERFUL: It’s you, only faster. The Turbo Full Power system senses the force you apply to the pedals and amplifies your effort up to four times for an experience that makes getting up any hill or to any destination no sweat. Literally.

COMFORTABLE AND CONFIDENT: Both body position and handling are optimized to deliver everything the rider needs: comfort, confidence, and control. Reign in your speed with hydraulic disc brakes and stay in control with larger tires that offer more traction for turning and stopping on any terrain.

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

SECURE:  Tero has anti-theft on lock. Thwart would-be bike thieves by disabling the motor with a press of a button so nobody can turn the motor back on without your personalized pin. For additional protection, lock the battery in the bike or take it with you to make bike thieves miserable.

SILENT: Turbo Full Power Motor provides smooth, quiet, and seamless amplification for a quiet ride on any terrain.

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.

Outstanding!

Purchased Tero 5.0 class 3 in Aug. 23. At 73 years old I love the 4x me power to get up the many hills in the PNW. I'm mostly on pavement, but there's a major gravel trail not far from the house that's about 10 miles long that I use occasionally. I swapped out the tires for a more friendly pavement and gravel tire. I also swapped out the 36T chainring for a 44T and at 70 RPM pedaling I can achieve 23 MPH very easily. Not many mountain bike trails in my vicinity without transporting the bike and traveling. The 36T ring was just not enough for pavement use. I also have a Turbo Vado SL 5.0 that is 2x me and is a bit more work, but is much lighter at 31 lbs. instead of the 50 lbs. of the Tero 5.0. Both are a lot of fun and I hope to be riding for more years to come.

Awesome bike!

Awesome all around bike! Very stable and reassuring off-road manners. Also I use it in town. A versatile commuter and weekend woods bike all in one. Great battery life, been on 5 sprints in my neighborhood and 2 18 mile rides with plenty left to do another 35 miles of riding. I am a large man, concerned about range while carrying my weight and Specialized took away my anxiety. Also one of the few available with an extra large frame available. Looking forward to many more miles and smiles.

Solid build, great range, love the display except when I clean my bike while upside down. The display will hit the ground. I just need to prop up the handlebars.

This bike was a great

This bike was a great way to get back into trail riding after a 20 year break! It handles really well, and the ability to dial in the amount of assist you want is top tier. It’s also been a great occasional alternative to my work commute which is 36 miles round trip. I could lean on the batter much harder than I have and still not needed to charge the battery at work…an absolute game changer. If you’re like me and wand want to get out and enjoy nature(and you are not a downhill bomber), I can’t think of a better fit than this bike. If I could change anything, it might be the mounting hole positions under the top tube…this was by no means a deal-breaker for me though. This was my first e-bike purchase and I had serious concerns about buyer’s remorse after getting it…happy to report those concerns no longer exist!

Great bike!

I have been waiting for a hard tail eMTB from Specialized to be available. I got the Tero 5.0 XL. So much power and so smooth to ride. I am a bigger guy, 6'4", 290 lbs. This bike feels solid and fits me great. I changed out the tires to 2.6 Butchers front and back, they fit and ride great. My wife has had the Levo SL for a while now, finally I will be able to keep up!

Love this bike! Unless you

Love this bike! Unless you really think you need all that extra suspension, or want to spend $2000+ more, this bike is the answer for a budget. Great bike for the money. The only nit is the SRAM Shifters and Brakes, they work fine and all, just not as nice as Deore, IMHO. I would recommend this product to anyone interested a serious mountain bike without all the extra suspension. It's a pleasure to ride.
