Specialized Turbo Creo SL Expert Review 2021

Two-minute review

The Specialized Creo SL Expert is a ride-like-the-wind performance bike that’s made even better with the addition of a battery and motor combination integrated into the stunning design. It’s the sort of electric bike that could even persuade cycling purists that having power assist is a good thing, while the obvious appeal is for riders who want, or indeed need a boost from time to time.

The e-bike boasts a lightest in its class rating and comes with all of the trimmings we expect from the Specialized brand, including flamboyant styling, beautiful build quality and a choice of components that help to deliver the goods in terms of performance.

The writing on the frame tells you all you need to know in terms of what to expect: California design; Swiss engineered; handmade in Taiwan. Despite its high price the Specialized Creo SL Expert justifies every penny by rolling everything into one hot-to-trot package. It’s an e-bike with a design that gives you proper oomph, although the slightly invasive motor noise turns heads as much as the bright red frame does.
