Product Description

If you can characterize your life as on-the-go, busy, or not having enough time, we made a bike for you—the Turbo Vado 3.0. It's made to accommodate busy lives that are always in movement, which is why we took our proven Turbo pedal-assist technology and accelerated it into the future.

It features a custom 250-watt motor and 460Wh battery that are fully integrated with the bike and specifically tuned for city riding, and in the case of the battery, it doesn't require any tools for removal, so it's super easy to remove from the bike for charging. You might have noticed that this motor has the same output as the 4.0, which is true, but where the internals of these two diverge is at the battery and custom motor tune. This 3.0 iteration of the Vado's battery has a little less "umph" to it, so you could say that it's better suited to urban environments and shorter trips. The tune, meanwhile, is meant to be as efficient as possible for quick, spontaneous efforts that are demanded when riding in the city. We also made sure that it's totally compatible with Bluetooth®, so you can toggle between battery modes to increase your range in real time via the Mission Control App. There are three battery modes to work with in order to maximize the battery life, and with the app, you can even plot your course and the battery will adjust while you're riding to make sure that you get through your ride on one charge.

The Vado's motor is fully integrated with the frame and features a 250-watt 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.
A custom 2.2-inch LCD digital display enables you to monitor all of your ride data in real time. It also connects the Mission Control App via Bluetooth®, so you have full control over the tune, modes, range, and much more.
We made the custom 460Wh battery to be fully integrated with the frame, removable for easy charging, and lockable for added security. It can communicate with the display and has multiple modes to maximize the overall efficiency and range.
