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!
The high-torque Specialized motor takes away the fear of even the steepest ramps. The combination of a very natural riding feeling and a progressive power delivery characterises the Specialized 2.2. 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: (8000) .

The Rock Shox chassis provides safety and traction, even when the trail gets rougher. However, it comes to its limit at high speed. In comparison, it's noticeable that the direct competition mounts better chassises, thus offering significantly more control. The thick 38mm stanchions on the fork provide an extra dose of steering precision and performance. At the rear, the steel spring shock absorber provides maximum sensitivity. Thanks to the solid power, the SRAM brakes can be counted on in the upper class segment. With four pistons and big brake rotors, Specialized won't take any chances in that area. At the drivetrain components and the rest of the parts, Specialized uses average parts. 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

The Turbo Kenevo Expert is clearly strong in uphill riding. Even though other bikes might shine more in the a mediocre groupset and an average range, this one does not disappoint: With a middle ground groupset and a mediocre range, there's nothing stopping the uphill flow.
