Bringing the redesigned Gen 3 Levo to a more wallet-friendly price point, Specialized now offers the bike in Comp Carbon, Comp Alloy, and Base Alloy models. The move promises to bring the Levo's ride quality, power, and range to a wider range of riders.
It hasn't taken long for the Levo to follow in the footsteps of the Stumpjumper Evo as not only does it get a cheaper Comp Carbon model but there are also two alloy frames up for grabs.
Each of the bikes gets Specialized's Turbo Full Power motor that offers up to 565 watts of peak power with 90Nm of torque, apparently being able to quadruple any effort on the pedals. With that, the bikes come with the brand's 700 watt-hour battery which is said to support riders for up to five hours of riding.
It also comes with Smart Control which, when engaged, ensures you won't run out of battery mid-ride as is managed the support levels on the fly.
Just like the Levo's non-assisted counterpart, it offers six geometry settings with two and a half degrees to play with at the head angle and 7mm of adjustment at the bottom bracket. Though as an example, the Levo Comp models get a 64.5° head tube angle, a 76.2° seat tube angle, and a 442mm chainstay, and a size S4 gets a 477mm reach.
Oh, and it's a mullet bike. The frame is designed especially for the mixed wheel size with a 650b hoop at the back and a 29" wheel at the front. Then as for travel, there's 150mm of rear wheel squish with 160mm at the fork on sizes S2 to S6. Size S1 gets 150mm at the front.
Moving onto the bike's specs, the Levo Comp Carbon benefits from Spesh's FACT 11m full carbon frame with a Fox Float 36 Rhythm fork with a GRIP damper paired with a Fox Float DPS Performance Elite. Then, there's a SRAM GX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain with SRAM Code RS four-pot brakes. Those slow down a pair of Specialized wheels that are shod with a 2.6" Specialized Butcher at the front and a 2.6" Specialized Eliminator at the rear. The Levo Comp Alloy gets the very same componentry but with an alloy frame.
The Levo Alloy is the base model in the range and it benefits from a RockShox 35 Silver fork with a RockShox Deluxe Select R shock. This bike is driven by a SRAM SX/NX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain with SRAM Guide RE brakes. The rest of the components match that of the other two bikes, apart from the TranzX dropper post, whereas the others get an X-Fusion Manic dropper.
If a new Specialized e-bike is tickling your fancy, you'll be looking at spending £5,250 for the Levo Alloy, £6,750 for the Levo Comp Alloy, and £7,750 for the Levo Comp Carbon.
