Specialized is recognized for their unwavering commitment to performance, and it shines through in the Turbo Kenevo Expert. The dual-crown fork unequivocally signals what this rig is built for – hardcore trail shredding!
With torque under the motor cover, the support is generous. Nobody needs to fear steep hills anymore. Furthermore, the power of the motor control is regulated so that the start always feels dynamic,. Fans of XXL tours are greatly restricted by the Turbo Kenevo Expert with only an average range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the Turbo Kenevo Expert in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (7000) .

Rough descents take away some of the fear thanks to the average chassis. The thick 38mm stanchions on the fork provide an extra dose of steering precision and performance. Bad brakes reduce the riding pleasure. Fortunately, this is not the case with the Turbo Kenevo Expert. With their four pistons and large brake rotors the SRAM brake brakes good. The drivetrain and components have a subordinate but not to be neglected importance when it comes to EMTB. Even the bike brand product managers know this and don't aim too high with mostly average components. The trend is going towards increasingly longer main frames. With a very high Reach Value, Specialized meets this trend. However, especially inexperienced riders must be aware that it takes a brave body effort to maneuver the Turbo Kenevo Expert.

Conclusion


Expirience with the Specialized Turbo Kenevo Expert

This Turbo Kenevo Expert stands as a clear opponent of gravity. With its a good motor and a good geometry, it is an excellent Enduro for effortless uphill flow. But a mediocre groupset and an average range is a criticism that must be honestly taken into account when assessing the whole package of this bike.
