We've always got our eyes open for bikes that fill certain requirements that our customers ask for. We keep hearing requests for a lightweight, step through, utility bike with enough power to get you up the hills. Specialized bikes, with their new range of lightweight urban bikes have filled this spot beautifully.
Specialized Bikes, historically well known for their high end sports bikes, have really listened and understood what commuters are looking for in this years offerings. For that reason we're excited to add them to our curated selection of bikes. We know you're going to love riding them!
The two first bikes that we will be carrying are the Como Super Light and the Vado Super Light and as the name describes, they are significantly lighter than traditional ebikes yet have all the utility that commuters require. You can read more about these two models below or simply come by the store to try them out.
The Como Super Light is a low-maintenance joy machine, equipped with everything you need for spontaneous fun. Carry it down stairs, zip across town, pack it full of groceries, it’s ready to take flight. With a frame mounted front rack, fully integrated lights and fenders, internal hub gearing and one of the lightest mid-drive motor systems on the market, Specialized have created a bike that offers the flexibility of an ebike in a light, beautiful package. You can find out more about this bike on our website here.
Specialized's Vado has been a longstanding commuter favourite. It has now been completely redesigned to accomodate Specialized's new Super Light motor system, in a lower step through package.
If you're already a keen cyclist but you're looking for that extra kick of assistance, or are simply looking for a bike you can carry up your steps without requiring a trip to the chiropractor, then this is a great bike to consider. You can find out more about this bike on our website here.
If you're interested in a bike for urban use from Specialized that isn't on this list yet then please get in touch with us, as we may be able to order one in for you.
