The model comes with a 90 Nm motor, 710 Wh battery and a multitude of accessories to adapt to the specific needs of each user. The range consists of a single one-size-fits-all model, weighing 39.60 kg and available for 6,500 euros.

Specialized Turbo Porto: cutting-edge for a cargo bike aiming high

Changes in urban mobility are starting to become a reality, now that cities seem to understand the important role that bikes can play in transportation. Cargo bikes are in high demand and are increasingly taking up more space in the market. Brands, aware of this, fine-tune their products and design proposals that attract the attention of urban cyclists.

Specialized returns to the scene with a big bet: an electric cargo bike that bases its reason for being on performance, power, and autonomy that aim to set the standard in the sector.

The Turbo Porto is a low bike that helps the cyclist get on and off it easily; one of the brand's goals has been to offer confidence and stability regardless of the load being carried. In fact, it is designed to support a load of up to 200 kilograms and for people between 1.55 and 1.95 meters tall.

The electric part is one of the strong points of this model, as it combines a 90 Nm motor and a 710 Wh battery -which must be removed to charge- giving it an autonomy that can reach up to 5 hours of use. The Turbo screen and the Specilized app allow you to configure the power, in addition to including the Smart Control system that manages the battery level based on the kilometers to be traveled.

Accessories for all tastes and needs

Another key feature of the Turbo Porto is the variety of accessories offered, several of them designed to make it a family-friendly use; in fact, Specialized states that this model is designed to transport people, without compromising stability, agility, or style.

First of all, several elements are included with the bike: front rack and footrests, a mirror, a Garmin radar, an adjustable stem, fenders, frame bag, pannier rails, adjustable seatpost, seat handle, and a rear rack.

On the other hand, it offers several extras: Porto safety rails, Porto platforms, aluminum footrests, Coolcave panniers, Porto side bag, and Porto charging base.

Specialized offers six extra kits. The family kit includes footrests, safety rails, child seat, passenger seat, and a 44 L side bag on the non-motorized side. The cargo kit comes with the aluminum base, front and rear racks -the front rack supports up to 20 kg-. The kit for small children has foot platforms, safety rails, and two child seats.

The kit for older children includes safety rails, two passenger seats, and foot platforms. The kit for small children and cargo offers safety rails, child seat, two Coolcave panniers, and front and rear racks. Finally, the kit for older children and cargo comes with safety rails, footrests, passenger seat, and two Coolcave panniers.
