Sorry, the Specialized Levo SL Kids eMTB is not for adults
The Specialized Levo SL Kids electric mountain bike is the California-based brand’s solution for a smaller version of their Turbo Levo SL, their lightweight eMTB that features a 250W SL 1.2 motor and produces 45 Nm of torque. With a reduced frame size, 24” wheels, and the same mid-drive motor and battery, kids will be able to enjoy the powerful and lightweight eMTB just as the adults do.
“The same 320 wh battery and motor that powers the adult’s Levo SL drives the new Levo SL Kids,” stated Specialized. “The full-size Levo SL, piloted by an adult, gives you up to 5 hours of range. With a much smaller rider on Levo SL Kids, the range goes up considerably. Trust us, the only juice you should be worried about running out of is the kind squeeze from a fruit.”
To ensure that tiny hands can securely and comfortably use the stoppers, the Specialized Levo SL Kids electric mountain bike has an adjustable reach SRAM Level T hydraulic brake lever, a 100mm Reba air fork, a dropper seat post, and an SRAM NX 11-speed gear. The new bike boasts several high-end components often found on adult-oriented electric cycles, but it is fitted more for shorter riders.
The features include a slackened head tube angle and a reduced standover height. Kids have more control because of the shorter chainstays, which also serve to increase responsiveness and maneuverability. The new “Kids” model weighs only 36.6 pounds, which is far lighter than the adult Levo SL at 41 pounds.
“What kids lack in pedal power they make up with endless wonder and the desire to explore,” Specialized added. “Levo SL Kids levels the playing field so their imagination to experience the outdoors won’t be limited by their pedal abilities.”
In the United States, Specialized’s new Kids eMTB is fixed at a price of 3,800. In addition to its launch, the company will be donating 500 kids bikes and helmets to local Outride programs.
