Have you ever wished for a bit more "oomph" on a hill while riding your bike in the city? Bike lanes are becoming more prevalent so bicycles are an even more viable option for transit, not just exercise. With the extra power of a custom-designed engine, the Specialized Vado 4.0 Step Thru Electric Bike can make your commute zippy and fun.
Electric bikes may seem like stripped-down scooters but they rely on the rider to pedal. In this case, the harder you pedal, the more power the encased motor sends to the wheels, making each revolution efficient, while maintaining a whisper-quiet ride. Plus, the motor is very responsive to quick movements, making it ideal for stop and go situations in traffic but comfortable enough for longer trips.
That added burst of power is just the tip of the iceberg with the Vado 4.0. It blends the best aspects of a traditional bicycle and an electric bike. It features a Shimano Deore 10-speed component, hydraulic disc brakes, and a SR Suntour with 50 mm of travel, racks, and fenders. Combined with Bluetooth connectivity, built-in anti-theft technology, and five available page displays, your riding experience will be as unique as you are.
The Specialized Vado 4.0 Step Thru Electric Bike is available to check out at Erik's Bike-Board-Ski in Liberty.
