Specialized's latest offering in the third generation full-suspension Levo family. The all-new 2022 Levo Expert brings a more affordable price-tag, yet still boasts the same core market-leading technologies and ride feel from its elder siblings; the Pro and S-Works models. Sharing the same 11m FACT carbon frame, same 2.2 motor and same big 700Wh battery, the Levo Expert is trail-ready for your next season of premium e-MTBing!

The all-new Levo delivers the unbelievable power to ride more trails through an unequaled combination of ride quality, usable power, and ride anywhere range. It’s the distillation, application, and amplification of a 40-year obsession with creating the world’s best riding mountain bikes. Since its introduction, Levo has set the bar every other e-MTB aims for, and the new Levo raises that bar again.

It starts with our Turbo Full Power 2.2 motor and MasterMind Turbo Control Unit (TCU), which provide Levo with a smooth and seamless amplification of your efforts - 4x you power that lets you choose where to ride, and when you want to do it. Levo also shatters limitations when it comes to range, amplifying your effort for up to five hours of trail time. Now you can ride farther, and explore more, than ever before. And the optimized chassis boasts 150mm of custom-tuned rear suspension and adjustable geometry that delivers a stable and natural ride like no other. Because at the end of the day, it’s the ride that matters. Believe it.

Here’s where the gloves come off—the Levo Expert brings it with SRAM’s robust X01 Eagle 12-speed drivetrain, dialed-in FOX Performance Elite suspension, and a high-performing Roval Traverse wheelset.

  • Levo’s fully integrated Turbo Full Power 2.2 motor, 700Wh battery, and advanced MasterMind Turbo Control Unit deliver category-leading 90 Nm of torque and 565 watts of power for up to five hours of ride time, empowering you to ride farther and faster than ever before.
  • The MasterMind Turbo Control Unit is your information hub with customizable display fields, including the exact percentage of battery level, and it features our all-new MicroTune function to adjust power delivery in 10% increments, so you get exactly the support you need to experience precisely the ride you want.
  • A dedicated mixed-wheel size design with a 27.5” wheel in the back and 29” up front delivers a nimble ride that carves circles around other full-power e-MTBs. A generous cockpit centers you on the bike, optimizing traction and corner control. The low bottom bracket, slack headtube angle and reduced fork offset keep things stable in the rough. 
  • Levo offers six distinct geometry settings, allowing you to easily dial-in its performance for any riding style andany terrain. Head tube angle can be adjusted between 63- and 65.5-degrees. Bottom bracket height can be fine-tuned up or down by 7mm. 
  • Levo’s 150mm of rear travel is supple on small bumps, devours square-edged hits without a twitch, eats massive G-outs for breakfast, yet still offers amazing pedal response and delivers your power to the ground with total efficiency.
  • The Levo’s S-Sizing is based on what matters—rider size and style, not inseam. Six sizes, all with similar headtube lengths and standover, allow you to choose the size that best suits your individual style. Smaller S-Size numbers are going to be nimble and more flickable, while bigger S-Sizes deliver more stability and a roomier ride.

*Barring angle values marked by their degree symbol (°), all chart measurements above are listed in millimetres (mm).

Adjustable Geometry:

The 2022 Levo's head tube angle can be adjusted between 63 and 65.5 degrees, while bottom bracket height can be quickly, and easily, moved up or down by 7mm to hone handling manners from stable to nimble. All together, that's six geometry settings to your disposal, all of which will give a distinct feel to your ride. More on the Levo's geometry in this video...

Detailed below are the 2022 Levo Expert's sizes, with their respective rider's height ranges to which they suit.

S2 - 157cm to 173cm (5'2" to 5'8")

S3 - 165cm to 180cm (5'5" to 5'11")

S4 - 173cm to 188cm (5'8" to 6'2")

S5 - 178cm to 193cm (5'10" to 6'4")

S6 - 188cm to 203cm (6'2" to 6'8")

Please note, while you may fit snuggly (according to the size guide) into one particular size, we advise you size DOWN for more manoeuvrability in tight corners or playfulness in flicking the bike in the air. Conversely, size UP for more stability through rough fast rock gardens, aggressive root sections, etc. Our staff will happily engage you in this wider sizing conversation to have you riding the right size bike for your height and riding style.
