Specialized Turbo Tero review

The Turbo Tero is Specialized's entry point to electric mountain bikes. With a hardtail design, it's more appealing to those who need a do everything bike. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
There are three models in the Turbo Tero range - styled as 3.0, 4.0 and 5.0. We've ridden the top spec 5.0 here. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
Aside from the handlebar mounted controls, there's little else that gives this away as an electric bike. Turn it off and it is just a heavy mountain bike. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
The Rockshock forks offer 110mm of travel, the wide handlebars and upright seating position mean its well suited for long comfortable rides. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
It is a big bike, though. Great if you want to transport stuff: there are attachment points so you can mount a rack, it will also take a child seat or trailer. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
Like other e-bikes, you have to be pedalling to benefit from the assistance, and you're offered three settings: Eco, Trail and Turbo (image credit: The Gear Loop)
The Turbo Tero sits in a great position bridging a divide between costly full suspension MTBs and commuter machines that won't cut it on the rough stuff. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
