The Turbo S, Specialized’s first electric bike, is among the world’s fastest, with a top speed of 28 miles per hour. It’s so zippy that the company can’t sell it in the U.S., where the legal limit for an e-bike is 20 mph. And whereas most electric-assist bikes are clunky, the 50-pound Turbo is sleek, thanks to the low-profile lithium-ion battery and internal cable routing.
