Specialized's New Turbo Kenevo 180mm e-MTB Bike
Specialized (USA) – "hen we launched the Turbo Levo, one of the first things we heard was, “That’s cool, but do you have one with more travel?” The answer is yes. Yes, we do. It's called the Turbo Kenevo", shared Specialized.

The Power to Ride Bigger Trails:
"The Kenevo came from a want to ride steeper, rougher, and gnarlier trails without loading up your buddy’s truck and spending more time driving up than riding. Based on our Enduro chassis, the Kenevo is meant for anyone that wants to consider shuttling a thing of the past. Equipped with a RockShox Lyrik fork, Öhlins coil suspension, SRAM Code brakes and dedicated 27.5 x 2.8" tires, this bike takes everything you can throw at it and asks for more", explained Specialized.

"Shuttling, no matter where you are in the world, was at some point a necessary evil to get to “the goods," but that's no longer the case. The Kenevo was built with this purpose in mind, steep and deep, with 180mm (front and rear) of bump- and chop-eating travel and a burly aluminum frame. With a slack 65-degree head angle, "steep" becomes a relative term, while the custom Öhlins coil rear shock leaves you grinning as you plow through damn near anything. The new Wu dropper post, meanwhile, makes climbing and descending even better than before. But let's back up. What is the Wu you ask? It's a dropper post that changes the seat angle incrementally as it drops, giving you a setup more similar to a gravity bike at the bottom of its stroke. With all this, the Kenevo quickly becomes a true rider's e-MTB bike. And with no corners cut, the gravity-fed experience is purer than ever, so you can leave that truck in the driveway", they added.

Integrated Specialized E-Bike Technology:
New to the integrated motor and battery system is Specialized Trail Remote. Tucked discreetly on the bars to keep a clean cockpit, it provides easily accessible access to toggle between the four modes (including the new walk-assist) without removing your hands from the bar.

"The new Specialized 1.3 motor no longer makes you pick two or three upgrades. Instead, you get improved efficiency, better heat management, and more power—you get all three. The new motor also packs 15% more power through new magnets and an all-new electronic unit. Meanwhile, improved motor efficiency and better heat management come from two sources—hardware improvements and new software . But the software not only supports motor and heat management efficiencies, it also balances your own power inputs to guarantee even smoother assistance. Thermal pads in the motor also help to balance heat distribution internally, while the thermal pad between the motor and frame rid the system of excess heat", continues Specialized.
