Specialized Turbo Como 5.0 650b
I’m interested

When it comes to e-bikes, you won't often find the words "stylish" and "fun" in their descriptions—that is until the Turbo Como 5.0 with 650b wheels burst onto the scene. With a comfortable geometry, a modern look, nimble 650b wheels with cushy 2.3" tires, and an additional boost from the fully integrated motor, this Turbo Como brings more fun to your bike ride than you ever could have imagined.

Beginning with a completely redesigned, powerful, and integrated Turbo 1.3 motor, the Como proves itself as the fastest, most comfortable urban bike you've ever perched yourself upon. First off, our proprietary Rx Street Tune takes the power of a belt-driven motor that's smooth, silent, and free of annoying vibrations, and makes it optimized for riding in an urban environment by reacting to the amount of force you apply to the pedals. Think of it this way: The more power you put out, the more power the motor puts out (up to 20mph), and this makes accelerations from a standstill both quick and efficient. Perfect.

For the Como, we developed a custom battery, we call the Specialized U1-604, that seamlessly integrates into the frame, plus it's lockable and easily removable for simplified charging. With this battery, the Turbo Como delivers some extra "oomph," with plenty of juice to accompany you on your cruise down the bike path, a trip to the grocery store, or even to that new café on the other side of the city.

We also developed a custom 2.2-inch smart computer that lets you view your battery level and toggle various ride metrics such as speed, distance, and time. You can also peruse these screens via the custom handlebar remote without ever removing your hands from the bars.

The 650b wheels, meanwhile, have also been paired with 2.3-inch tires, so they can roll over most cracks, bumps, and holes with ease to ensure that nothing stands in your way on your path to a good time. And to top off all of these innovative features, we chose a high-end spec that includes Shimano XT/SLX 11-speed components, four-piston hydraulic disc brakes, racks, and fenders.

  • The custom E5 aluminum frame on the Como, cleanly houses the battery and motor, while still keeping the lightweight properties that E5 is known for.
  • The Como’s motor is fully integrated with the frame and features a smooth, silent, vibration-free output. It's also been custom-tuned for city riding, and it intuitively reacts to the force of your pedaling—so the harder you pedal, the more power it delivers. And with an internal belt drive design, it does this without added vibration for the smoothest and most silent ride possible.
  • We made the custom 604 Wh battery to be fully integrated with the frame, removable for easy charging, and lockable for added security. It communicates with the display and has multiple modes to maximize the overall efficiency and range.
  • Max Top Speed: 28 mph / 45 km/h
