Which of these is best to go for, for local trails, some down hill and some trips to wales and Scotland? Any owners experiences would be much appreciated Cheers Craig.
Aug 12, Manchester Ride Levo. I've got a Levo Carbon and have to say I would have been happy with the alloy framed version had it come in a colour scheme I liked. As for Kenevo, I've seen a few guys riding them who are clearing 20 foot gaps and I can see how it's the bike for them.
For mere mortals in the UK the Levo is more than enough - I've done a couple of downhills on mine and the lighter weight makes up for the shorter suspension. Last edited: Dec 29, Reactions: Craig Ive been swaying more to the Levo and I did wonder if the carbon one really makes much of difference? If it doesn't I might just go for the alloy frame then Cheers.Bike Perfect is supported by its audience. When you purchase through links on our site, we may earn an affiliate commission. Learn more.
They dropped g out of the frame over the original Levo and then remodelled the motor with a smaller, direct-mount magnesium casing to drop another grams. The rest of the frame carries over the asymmetric strut design of the Stumpjumper for easy shock access and decent frame stiffness. The mm travel FSR suspension layout is the same too, including the ManFu direct shock link onto the short seat-tube-mounted rocker.
In terms of handling the Levo's geometry is actually more aggressive than the Stumpjumper, with a 0. Already powerful SRAM Code R brakes get mm rotors both ends for extra anchorage and heat dissipation on long descents. The front Butcher tyre uses an intermediate Grid carcass but both ends are 29 x 2. Praxis crank arms are stiff, with a mm length for extra ground clearance and easy spin rather than peak grunt.
Interestingly Specialized has stuck with a speed cassette and mechs rather than going full Eagle MTB groupsetrelying on the motor to make up the difference in ultra-steep situations. All sizes of Levo now get the 40mm stem reserved for smaller bikes inwith a mm handlebar for leverage.
Ditch the inner tubes and turn the tyres tubeless or get the shop to do it before you even turn a pedal. Specialized have factored in the extra weight that needs controlling on descents though and the slightly slacker and longer geometry than the Stumpjumper gives it more stability on descents or in slippery situations.
The steeper seat angle helps here too, although you still need to shift onto the saddle nose for poise compared to more progressively shaped machines. The extra tyre float and diameter combines with the extra momentum of the bike and the boosted sprung to unsprung suspension ratio for a proper steamroller-effect over chatter and stutter sections. The motor and battery side of the Levo is generally a big plus compared to other bikes. The motor itself is really good.
Having the big battery as standard also makes km rides possible even on taxing terrain. There are certainly a lot more really good e-MTB options rolling out for including some properly rad handling rides and slicker integrated, bigger battery, new Bosch-powered machines.The Turbo Levo SL is the lightest e-MTB in its class thanks to its svelte-yet-stiff chassis, superlight motor, and cutting-edge power supply.
End result? Want to earn your turns? Specialized dropped pounds from the frame and motor. In the process, they made their lightest and best handling full-suspension, e-mountain bike to date. They have also optimized weight distribution for a lower center of gravity and a nimbler, more planted feel.
They have also created a durable housing to protect the battery, and strategically placed the cells to provide the Levo with an ideal weight distribution for even better handling. The goal was to create the smoothest, quietest, and most efficient motor out there.
Specialized did just that with a new magnesium-bodied Specialized 2. The motor features a belt drive design, an integrated speedometer, and power meter that measures speed and pedaling effort. This Turbo is even smarter than before. You can easily customize motor characteristics, monitor your power use, control your range, perform basic system diagnoses, and even record and upload rides.
New to the app is the Shuttle Mode feature, which takes the sting out of long, painful limbs by giving you maximum motor support with less effort at the pedals. Taking nods from the Stumpjumper, the Levo is a fully progressive trail bike.
Specialized has lengthened the reach, kept the chainstays nice and short, and maintained a low center of gravity. To lighten and stiffen the frame, Specialized developed a new frame design. This sidearm design increases efficiency and performance by directly connecting the rear shock to the frame. This feature allows you to change the frame geometry while you ride.
All you need is a hex wrench. The Levo features a chainstay protector designed to dampen the sound of chain slaps as you ride. Every bike has been fine-tuned by the Specialized Suspension Team.
Specialized Turbo Kenevo Expert 6Fattie first ride review
Taking into account the specific design of each frame, the bike is tuned to give you the ability to adjust to your liking with ease. Electric Bikes. Pedal Bicycles.Imagine a bike that could let you rip down the wildest, roughed up, technical descents and be pedalled back up to the top of the hill without breaking a sweat.
Sounds too good to be true, right? The seat tube angle is a touch slacker though, measuring in at Specialized switched all of its Turbo Levos to 2. Of course, in order to make getting the Kenevo back up the hill without the need of a chairlift or shuttle truck, Specialized needs to supply some kind of assistance.
In this case, just like the latest generation of Turbo Levos, this comes in the form of the latest Brose Turbo 1. Specialized claims that the revisions made to the motor mean an impressive 15 percent increase in power over the previous 1. When it comes to tackling the problem of overheating — something that can often lead to a loss in power — Specialized claims to have solved the problem by placing thermal pads inside the motor to help distribute heat more effectively, as well as adding thermal pads between the frame and motor itself to further help with heat dissipation should things start hotting up a little too much.
New neodymium magnets and a new electronic unit cap the hardware updates off. When it comes software, Specialized says the latest updates — something all current Levo owners can benefit from — work in unison with the new hardware to improve power delivery, efficiency and overall range. Something I found particularly interesting with the Kenevo was the use of the double freewheel design. Burly 2. Specialized has included its latest dropper post, the Command WUaboard the Kenevo.
Other interesting points to note from the spec include the gearing, and more specifically, the single click SRAM GX shifter. That is the only element of EX1 to be found on the bike though, as the rest of the gearing is taken care of using the regular GX speed transmission. To help ensure you can continue to pedal the Kenevo up rough, rocky climbs, Specialized has used shorter, mm cranks to provide adequate clearance and avoid any momentum shattering crank strikes.
My time aboard the Kenevo was extremely limited and certainly not enough for me to really get the complete measure of the bike, especially considering that I was riding totally unfamiliar trails. I was able to get an initial impression of it though and, thanks to the nature of the trails at Mountain Creek Bike Park, New Jersey, get an idea of just what the Kenevo is capable of. My ride started with a climb to the top of the mountain which zig-zagged the ski piste and was punctuated with a number of short, sharp efforts.
At 5ft 8in, I felt properly comfortable aboard my medium test bike when seated. It became clear just how sensitive the motor was to changes in cadence as the pitch of climbs began to change or when I needed to change tempo when meandering through some of the slower uphill turns.We frequently get asked by our customers which is best for them.
Giant and Specialized are some of the biggest names in the bike industry. But how do you decide which is best for you? Read on! Giant take their power unit from Yamaha, and it puts out 80 Nm at W nominal power, and tips the scales at roughly 3.
Specialized hits almost the same numbers with an output of 90 Nm at W nominal power and a little lighter at 3 kg.
Levo or Kenevo? Any buying advice from Specialized owners?
The Specialized unit made by Brose with plenty of their own design input and wizardry. It has more top-end power of the two units. For those who really want the extra oomph could be best served with the Specialized. Specialized are truly obsessed with dialling in the most natural motor response and that hard work feels wonderful during the ride. The battle of battery life is too close to call between most of the Levos and Trances.
Generally speaking though, we advise all customers that the biggest determinant of battery life is how and where you ride. Both Giant and Specialized have juiced most of their entire ranges with a Wh battery pack.
A quick calculation can be done on the fastest burn time by dividing the watt hour capacity of the battery by the nominal maximum power. Specialized have favoured a minimalist approach. You give the buttons a flick with your thumb to cycle through the power modes. The motor automatically responds to your pedalling and chooses the appropriate power rather than having a maximum power setting like the other modes.
Giant have more power modes and more data on display. Aluminium is a great frame materials and suits e-MTBs well. Specialized have specced their cheapest Turbo Levos with aluminium frames and everything above that is carbon. Carbon fibre is a fantastic frame material; light, whippy, and exciting. But it comes at a cost, particularly on e-MTBs.
Giant have gone for a beefy, utilitarian approach. They tend to focus on stuffing the most great parts into their packages than making them the most aesthetically pleasing.
Still, the Turbo Levo edges it out in the looks department. The Levos were all kitted out with That decision was driven by the greater trail feel that bigger, narrower tyres can give, and the greater variety of tyres available for that rim size. Giant have stuck with the Giant have only made the Trance in 3 sizes; Small, Medium and Large. Specialized have 4, with an XL at the top of their range.
The front end geometries are quite different. The Giant Trance line is more stretched out with longer Reach and lower Stack numbers than the equivalent sized Turbo Levo.
Giant have chosen a shorter stem though, with 40 mm on the S and 50 mm on the M and L sizes. Specialized have put a 50 mm on everything. Head angles are slightly slacker on the Specialized than the Trance too. Specialized took their inspiration from their Stumpjumper when they designed the Levos. What does that all mean? Broadly, the Giant will be the faster steering bike.Forums New posts Search forums. User Albums New media New comments Search media. What's new New posts New media New profile posts Latest activity.

I did get a bit of rock contact on the motor last weekend, just scraped it a little bit. You'd think that Specialized would make the bike pretty robust; are any of you guys putting protection on the bike? Apr 10, 11 53 US. I've been looking into this also. Mobbster put me on to this setup. And this one. I have no experience with either. StandUp - MTB stand and protection for e-mtb bikes. Rockguardz stuff is really good Tori.
