Pro Compare

The first real ebike for the purist mountain biker. I love the Levo SL. It's a super fun and capable trail bike from the big S.

The SL has 150mm suspension travel front and back, SL 1.1 35Nm motor and a 320Wh internal battery which bring the weight down. With any superlight ebike you work more on the ups, but have more fun on the downs. Perfect for someone that is experienced on an analog bike but looking at testing the water in the ebike market.

Check out my long term video reviews of the Levo SL on YouTube.
