If you live in a big city like New York, a regular bike is great, but it would be even better if you got a little boost. Specialized is bringing their e-bike technology to a new urban commuter called the Turbo Vado and it's a sleek option for those who want a solid balance of a proper performance bike, but with the help of pedal assist. 

The bikes come in a few different models with the higher-end versions sporting up to 350 watts of output. The bikes also feature a battery that is fully integrated into the frame, but is also lockable and removable for charging. Specialized has also created a dedicated smartphone app that lets you connect to your bike via Bluetooth for range data, mode options, and more.
