The Specialized Turbo Levo HT Comp 6Fattie is a trail capable electric bike from the brand that has built its reputation on innovation and design in the bike industry. The choice to use a Brose motor drive is a sound one given the ability to integrate the system into the Specialized chassis. The frame has been cleverly designed to not have a bolt on part to mount the motor but a full cast frame to suit the motor giving it strength and allowing the traditional designs with short chainstays create an amazing riding bike. This bikes climbs well with the powerful motor and the big tyres give it unreal grip. The boost hubs on the wheels give stiffness and allow the rims to be wider as well as allowing for the option of fitting a boost hub, 29 rimmed wheel mounted into the same frame.

The Smart Motion E-City and E Urban are designed in New Zealand and have been tested to our conditions with the help of New Zealand Post using the drive system on their bikes. The bike is a comfortable ride with enough power to pull you away at the start with a throttle and has all the functions of a more expensive bike. The pedal assist modes are cadence sensitive. This means that if you struggling to pedal you can just lightly turn the cranks and keep the bike moving forwards. The LCD has large digits and is easy to see at a glance. We have had customers get 90 km out of a charge on the battery and when we have asked them how much pedalling they do uphill they say “Oh no I don’t pedal up hill!”. Smartmotion have a solid platform with all the desired accessories on the bike from kickstand to fenders as well as bright lights and USB charging facilities. Over the past three years this has bike has proven to be able to handle tough conditions living on the backs of motor homes and getting ridden along a lot of the New Zealand Cycle Trails. If you are looking for a reliable, well priced leisure e-bike then the Smart motion is perfect.
