E-bike manufacturer Specialized wants to flatten your climbs and make you laugh out loud in the face of headwinds with their first-ever turbo road bike, the Turbo Creo SL. This mighty cocktail of lightweight, power, range and connectivity is designed to turn you into a monster in the saddle. The smooth, 240-watt Specialized SL 1.1 motor doubles your effort and is whisper-quiet. It’s most efficient when you’re most efficient, so it delivers its full power between a cadence of 60 and 100 RPM. Take your most epic day and put it on fast-forward with up to 120 miles of range (80 from the internal battery, 40 from an optional range extender). The Mission Control app tracks your power, while the Turbo Connect Unit gives you control when you don’t want to stay off the grid. The elite $16,500 Founders Edition is a whole other level in cycling cool; Specialized.com.
