Specialized has a long history of developing the world's highest-performing road bikes. Tarmac, Venge, Roubaix, Allez, Diverge - each one dominates their respective category, featuring the best technologies in the industry. And while that's a tough palmarès to follow, the Turbo Creo SL redefines e-road bike performance. It's lightweight, smooth, capable, and lively - all with the power to flatten mountains, laugh at headwinds, and go farther than you ever thought possible. It's you, only faster.

The Turbo Creo SL Expert features Specialized's Fact 11r carbon chassis. It's the same one on the S-Works model and you'll also get the new Future Shock 2.0.

For the spec, Specialized included a 1X Shimano Ultegra Di2 build with an XT rear derailleur and an 11-42t cassette to take on shifting and braking duties, while Roval C 38 Disc carbon wheels get wrapped in 28mm Turbo Pro tires to keep you rolling worry-free and super fast. And filling out the build is Specialized's own Future Stem Pro, alloy Expert Hover bars, and their fan-favourite Body Geometry Power Expert saddle.

Highlights

  • The Creo SL is the lightest e-bike in its class - literally kilograms lighter than the competition. Not only does the lightweight and stiff FACT 11r carbon frame inspires dancing on the pedals and diving into corners, but it also reduces overall system weight and increases the range.
  • The lightweight SL 1.1 motor doubles your effort with as much as 240 watts of silent and powerful assistance to amplify your ride. The motor’s responsive torque curve delivers power perfectly in-tune with your normal riding cadence and leaves no resistance when riding unassisted.
  • Battery anxiety? Not on the Creo SL. With up to 80 miles of range from the internal battery, the Creo SL eats up big miles and long days. Specialized's optional range extender provides up to 40 additional miles of mountain-flattening power.
  • By connecting with their Mission Control App, you're able to tune the SL 1.1 motor to your riding style, record rides, and monitor the battery. The app can handle battery management automatically too, ensuring the battery will last as long as you need it to. The motor even has a built-in power meter that transmits to any ANT+ head unit. Don’t want to connect? No worries - the Turbo Connect Unit (TCU) on the top tube gives you all the control you need to ride.
  • With the Future Shock 2.0, you'll feel a reduction in fatigue and an increase in speed, no matter the terrain. The 2.0 iteration gives you more control via a knob atop the stem. This knob adjusts compression from fully-open to stiff, while hydraulically-damped internals control rebound. The new Smooth Boot, top cap, and Future Stem also enhance the aesthetic, so you get a clean transition from head tube to stem.
  • Specialized have learned there can be more difference between two male cyclists than between a male and female. Gender alone doesn’t provide enough data to specialize. It means that separating bikes as male or female is arbitrary and outdated. With this in mind, Specialized developed a geometry that's best-fit for all riders - one that's comfortable, snappy, and handles like a dream.

Frequently Asked Questions


Is your retail store open?
Our retail store is temporarily open by appointment only, if you would like to visit please call us on 01228 546931 and book an appointment prior to arriving.

Can I bring a bike to the store for repairs?
Yes, but please contact us before doing so and do not do so if you are unwell in any way or form. Our workshop is busy the moment and sourcing spares and replacements, in particular for warranties, is taking a little longer than usual from many of our suppliers so all bikes must be booked into our system and left with us.

Can I place an order?
Absolutely, whilst our retail store is partially we’re continuing so ship orders every weekday - however, whilst we have resumed our Click & Collect options the store is only staffed on weekdays so please bare this in mind if you are wanting to collect an order from us.

Are your delivery times affected?
See the table above for details which we'll try to keep updated.

Can I still return unwanted items?
Yes, our usual terms and conditions still apply however if you are struggling to return an item because you are self-isolating then please get in touch to let us know so we can note an exception for your order.

Is receiving packages safe?
A prudent question to ask, but yes, receiving packages is safe so long as hand washing protocols are observed after receiving the package. Public Health England has advised that from previous experience with other types of coronaviruses tha these types of viruses don’t survive long on objects, such as delivery packages.

Similarly, our couriers are enacting minimal contact protocols for signatures so you won't have to physically sign for deliveries.

How can I contact you?
Right now, the best way to get in touch with us is via email - either by emailing support@scotbycycles.co.uk or by filling out the contact form below, with reduced staffing levels during this period our phone system is DND mode but is taking answerphone messages, if you really need to call us please do so and leave a message - someone will call you back as soon as possible.

Our support email is very busy at the moment, we're prioritizing tickets for existing customers and those with work orders - please allow a few working days to hear back from us.

Most of all #KeepSafe everyone and we’ll see you all on the other side.

Easy Returns

If an item doesn't fit, or isn't quite what you expected then simply fill out the enclosed returns form and return your unwanted items to us within 28 days for a full refund, we'll accept orders returned to us after this period with refunds made via gift vouchers for use against future orders. Unfortunately, we're unable to cover the costs of returning items to us.

For further information please see our Refund Policy for further details.

Bike Delivery

Unfortunately we're only able to ship bikes to MAINLAND UK addresses, if you live in the Highlands or on an offshore Isle please get in touch prior to purchasing - see details at the bottom of this section.

We aim to have all the bikes we stock pre-built and available for immediate purchase online and for in-store collection, once you have ordered a bike from us one of our fully trained Cytech mechanics will package your bike* into one of our custom made bike boxes. These extra-large boxes allow us to ship most bikes almost fully assembled but before we do so our mechanics will carry out a PDI (pre-delivery inspection) on the bike to ensure that before it's prepared for shipping everything is set up correctly, e.g. brakes, gear indexing etc.

Upon receiving your bike, you will simply need to take your new bike out of the box, turn and tighten the handlebars and fit one of the pedal (if your bike comes with pedals). In some instances, such as for road bikes, you may also need to attach the handlebars as they're too wide to simply be rotated so they'll be secured to the side of the frame with zip ties.

If you live outside of MAINLAND UK or in any of the postcodes listed below we can most likely still ship a bike to you but please get in touch as the surcharges we're billed by the courier vary from location to location.

Postcodes: AB, FK, HS, IV, KA, KW, PA, PH, ZE, IM, BT and GU, JE.
