TURBO LEVO / FAQ 2016
9
The app shows a long error code list but the bike works fine. What does this mean? (only MY16 Turbo 16)
• This is a bug that is being fixed
• Solution: turn bike off and on again, codes should be vanished
• If bike has real issues the error codes will keep popping up
• Actual error codes are stored in the battery and will persist if the bike and app are restarted.
• “Motor Error 67“ is another one that happens sometimes- „M-ERR“ code on bike UI and Error in MC app BUT both
disappear after both are restarted. No fault stored in BMS.
What are the main benefits of the Mission Control App?
• It is a real unique sales proposition
• Key USPs are range control, motor tuning, diagnostics and ride history
• It is free for download in Google Play store and App store
What effect has changing the wheel circumference in the app?
• Turbo: false speed data on display; no influence on actual bike speed
• Turbo Levo: very little influence on bike speed
• Turbo Levo wheel circumference: limited to a certain range 2000-2400mm to avoid legal issues; affects max.
speed; fastest setting: 2000 (about 1.3km faster); system restart needed
What are the benefits of tuning the motor characteristics in the app?
• Adjust motor behaviour to individual needs (range, power, riding profile etc.)
• Adjust Eco, Trail, Turbo to personal preferences
• Motor current: equals max power; makes sense if Levo rider and non Pedal Assist bikes want to ride together,
stay together; advanced setting
• Acceleration response: how fast bikes speeds off; not a huge difference but you can benefit from it especially
in steep uphills with tight corners; system restart needed to activate
What are the prerequisites to use the Mission Control App?
• Download app in App store or Google Play Store
• Create account in app, register (data connection is mandatory)
• Turn bike on and connect to it
Can two people access one bike via the Mission Control App at the same time?
• No
• One bike can only connect to one bike, after bike has been chosen it is not visible anymore since BT- channel is
occupied
TURBO LEVO / FAQ 2016
10
How accurate is Smart Control?
• Accuracy depends on usage conditions
• Tolerance plus/minus 5 to 10 percent
• Plan with safety margin
Does Smart Control drain the cell phone battery quickly?
• No, Smart Control is an algorithm running in the app, independent of data connection
• Only turn-by-turn navigation is very battery-consuming
• To save power: download country map(s) so that you can use navigation offline
What maps does the app use?
• OSM maps, developed with same company that developed Bosch Nyon display
How useful are the OSM maps for off-road usage?
• OSM maps are made for on-road usage in the first place
• Gpx tracks will be importable into app
• Use Smart Control by ride time or distance to control range
Can two users with different app profiles use one bike?
• Yes, each user has his own app user profile by registering
• Only one person can be connected to a bike at the same time- Levo always keeps the settings the last user made
• If user connects to bike app settings are not automatically transferred to bike
Will it be possible to upload a gpx-track into the app?
• Yes, this is one OF the next updates to the app
• So far you can export to Strava only

MOTOR
Who is Brose and what are the key facts about the Levo motor?
• Brose is a huge automotive supplier, selling their components all over the world; every second to third car is
equipped with Brose technology
• They have very high safety and quality standards: IEEE certified = very safe, e.g. bike cannot ride off on its own –
TάV certified – same safety standards of car
• Brose founded a special department for Pedal Assist motors in Berlin in 2014 („Brose Antriebstechnik“)
• Visit: http://www.brose-ebike.com
• First and only company that does custom motors
• Levo: exclusive, custom tuned for Specialized, Trail Tune, 250W nominal, 530W max., max torque 90 Nm
• IP 56 protection (high standard, but pressure washing not allowed according to Levo manual)
• Working temperature -10 to +50°C (never let Levo sit in the cold before riding; motor creates heat and also
works in lower temperature if usage begins at room temperature)
• Light motor with 3.4 kg (several hundred grams lighter than Bosch and others): magnesium and alloy parts, belt
wheel is magnesium (special tech), carbon belt (unique, quieter, Gates carbon reinforced belt)
• No resistance compared to other motors - disengages so no need to activate the motor when pedaling
• Highest quality standard
• Innovative sensor technology
• Motor assembly is machine work in the first place, robots, very accurate, e.g. copper winding
• Base for motor: Audi steering motor
• Motor temperature management has been changed since Leogang/sample bikes
• No special tools necessary to remove motor unit
What for are the unused cable ports in the motor housing?
• Round ports: lights
• Other ports: Brose display and throttle
• No need to use display port as Specialized offers all connectivity and display options through app and ANT+
devices
• Using Brose display would deactivate Mission Control App and Trail Display on the battery- important: always
use the blind plugs on unneeded motor ports; riding without the plugs may damage the motor
What is the motor working principle?
Roughly this:
• Stator/rotor – makes planet gear turn – gear ratio 1:9 – belt transmits force to spider (super silent thanks to the belt!)
– 30revs motor is one rev crank – torque sensor – signals: speed sensor, cadence
TURBO LEVO / FAQ 2016
12
How do you update the motor?
• Diagnostic tool hardware needed for motor update (updates won‘t be necessary for production bikes, at least not
at the beginning)
• Special cable needed for motor update: Y-cable (service item)
• Some early diagnostic tools can cause trouble with motor updates
• Wireless updates to come (battery and motor); rider uses app (probably from MY18 on)
Procedure:
• Have software and hardware
• Connect all 3 connectors
• Start matching software
• Font colours in software have no meaning
• Early sample bikes: first update battery, then motor
Can the 25 kph speed limit be removed to make the bike faster
• Yes, this is theoretically possible (smarter than on any competitor system)- no official information from
Specialized
• Tell Levo customers that they should not buy any tuning hardware for Brose, even Brose updates as they don‘t work
with our custom system
What effect does the wheel circumference on the bike speed?
• Wheel circumference can be adjusted between 2000 - 2400 mm in the Mission Control App
• Setting 2000 mm: Levo is about 1.2 kph faster than with standard setting
What can retailers do on Brose motors?
• Retailers are not meant to open the motor
• They can swap it against a new motor as one unit
• Belt change through SBC service only, not at retailer
• Service through Brose or Specialized Service Centre
• Do not update the Firmware from any other source than Specialized TSW even if available from Brose; the
firmware is developed for Specialized bikes and is different to other manufacturers using the same motors
TURBO LEVO / FAQ 2016
13
What tools are needed to take out the motor unit?
• Allen keys 3, 4, 8 mm
• 13 mm external hex with ratchet extension
• 32 mm external hex (for TL- UN 96)
• Ratchets for both external hexes
• Shimano TL-UN 96 or corresponding tool
• Shimano TL-FC 15 or corresponding tool (e.g. Brose ISIS spline cover)
• Chain whip
• Two-jaw puller
What are the steps to take out the motor unit
1. Switch battery off, disconnect motor cable, take out battery
2. Take off crank arms (8mm allen)
3. Take off left motor covers (screw have different lengths!)
4. Bring chain guide in highest positon and take chain off
5. Unscrew spider lockring (TL- UN96 + 32 mm outer hex + chain whip
6. Take off spider (two-jaw puller + TL-FC 15)
7. Take off right motor cover
8. Disconnect speed sensor cable from motor
9. Unscrew three 13 mm hex nuts that hold motor
10. Take motor unit out (if it stick never hit ISIS axle or motor body with mallet!)
What should I adhere to when putting the motor back in?
• Make sure all blind plugs on not needed motor ports are installed
• Make sure cables are not wedged between motor and frame (speed sensor, Command Post cable)
• Make sure speed sensor and motor cable ports are clean and dry
• Use loctite on 13 mm nuts
• Tighten 13 mm nuts with about 25 Nm
• Do not forget safety bracket for motor cable
• Tighten spider lockring with 45 Nm
• Grease shift cable grove in right motor cover to prevent creaking noise
• Lightly grease ISIS spline
What is special about the Brose motor in Specialized Levos?
• The custom Specialized Trail Tune motor is a unique custom motor for Specialized
• Special software/communication: different way of measuring rider input and calculating output
• Only motor system that allows tuning via app (adjust all three modes individually)
• Many rides and tests to get the right tuning (cadence spectrum and response characteristic, different modes,
acceleration etc.)
• RX-tune sticker will be on motor
TURBO LEVO / FAQ 2016
14
Does the motor offer more resistance when not engaged or when riding beyond motor support?
• No, motor and drivetrain are independent, no higher resistance
• This is a great advantage e.g. over Bosch and other systems that compromise ride by more motor resistance
Can the motor bearings be replaced by retailer or Specialized service??
• The motor is not serviceable by the rider, retailer, or SBC Service Center. With proper maintenance (NO
PRESSURE WASHERS) the bearings are expected/intended/designed to last to the 15000km service interval.
• As of right now, if a rider achieves the 15000 km and desires a service, the motor will likely be replaced rather
than serviced. Cost and specific procedure/policy are still TBD.
• If a motor exhibits bad bearings before 15000km or 2 years, normal warranty policies and procedures apply. We
will likely be lenient initially, but if a specific shop, rider, or mechanic is responsible for multiple and unique failures
then we will have to deal with them on a case-by-case basis.
What are the service/warranty times for the motor? (internal information)
• Warranty for rider/retailer is 2 years or 15.000 km for the belt
• If the motor has an issue before that mileage/time span, it gets replaced as one unit without cost (via SBC
service centers)
• Issue after 2 years/15.000 km: service prices to be determined
Can the mileage that has been stored in the engine be transferred to a new engine with an engine swap?
• No, this is not possible
• The mileage is only stored in the engine
What happens when the charge level reaches 20%?
• 20%: Battery gives a warning sign, the last two LEDs are red
• 10%: Battery gives a warning sign, system goes into eco-mode
• 1%: System will shut down
TURBO LEVO / FAQ 2016
15
FRAME
What is special about Levo frames?
• They are all purpose-built frames, designed from the ground up to offer the best ride experience
• Battery and motor integration (stiff system, low center of gravity, noise-free performance, easy
maintenance, great aesthetics)
• FSR frames have massive seatstay bridge to stiffen up rear-end
• Main pivot comes with two bearings each side for longevity- Levo frames are subject to our Limited Lifetime
Warranty
Can you ride a Levo without battery?
Yes, this is possible because the battery is not part of the frame construction
What is special about the Levo FSR geometry?
• For all frames: it's the ingenious Specialized geometry for trail-eating performance and great handling
• Levo FSR geometry is similar to Stumpjumper FSR geometry, but tweaked in certain aspects
• Higher bottom bracket for more clearance (11 mm higher than on SJ FSR 6Fattie); this allows rider to keep
pedaling and get motor support also in rough terrain; cranks are shorter for this reason, too (165 and 170 mm)
• Very short chainstays thanks to clever motor integration (459 mm); some competitors have up to 490 mm
chainstays; Levo handling is superior!
RANGE
What is the range spectrum for 504 Wh battery?
• There is a broad spectrum depending on variables
• Weight, mode, terrain and tyre spec/pressure play a huge role
• Leogang: most rides with Levo Expert FSR were between 1200 and 1500 hm in mix ECO/Trail with about 5-
12 % battery left (rider 70-80 kg)
Even harder to determine range than with Turbo. Some points to remember (repeating some from above):
• Tyre type and pressure (reported SIGNIFICANT reduction in range with 2 DH casing tyres)
• Type of terrain: Long climbs & descents vs. rolling terrain, soil type and condition
• Rider variables: Gear selection, Weight, Rider power input (remember that the motor provides a multiple of the
power a rider provides)
• Bike setup variables: Support mode selection, acceleration response, max support
TURBO LEVO / FAQ 2016
16
What should riders do to extend and control range?
• Tips for the customer to extend range-
• Use Mission Control App and activate Smart Control feature and tell the bike how long/how far you want to go
• Use Eco and Trail instead of Turbo (Turbo is not a mode that makes sense for intended use; it‘s there because
every system is expected to have some 100% mode)
• Bring down the motor current if you want more range (or if Levo rider wants to ride with non-Levo rider)
• Gather experience with bike in different settings
What effect has tyre choice and tyre pressure on range?
• The right tyres pressure is key! (reference: front 18 psi / 1.3 bar, rear: 20psi / 1.5 bar)
• Tyres have big influence (Rider 1 test with Butcher DH: 25-30% more watts per tyre against 6Fattie! Rider 1
battery was drained, rider 2 still had 40% left even though they almost weight the same and stayed together
during their ride)
• 29x2.3 Levos won’t have greater range than 6Fattie as 6Fattie energy consumption is only 2 Watts higher
than 29x2.3 GC
• Body weight has even greater effect
TYRES
What is the tyre pressure recommendation for Levos?
• Depends on many factors like tyre, rider, terrain, weight, but good reference for 6Fattie bikes is front 18 psi / 1.3
bar, rear 20 psi / 1.5 bar)
• You should add a few psi in the tyres to account for heavier weight
• The “Squeeze test” does not work on 6Fattie, and even more so for 6Fattie + Levo
• 1psi makes a big difference in performance with high-volume tyres but is nearly impossible to determine by feel
• The extra mass of the Levo requires slightly higher tyre pressure setting but most riders will not consider this
when trying to check pressure by feel.
• Instruct retailers to stock and sell quality pressure gauges
SPEED SENSOR
Can the magnet for the speed sensor also be mounted on other rotors?
• Yes, it can be mounted to all discs except Shimano Ice-Tech discs
• The magnet is a service item
• Instruct shops to keep some in stock to provide to riders who have multiple wheels
TURBO LEVO / FAQ 2016
17
SUSPENSION
What is special about the Rx tune in the Levo shocks?
• Larger air volume with more progressive tune to accommodate for greater bike mass
• Special shim stack tuning- super easy to set it up correctly thanks to Autosag
Are there special recommendations for Levo suspension setup?
• Use Autosag
• Rebound: to be adjusted a bit slower on 6Fattie bikes as tyres ‚pop‘ livlier
• Fork charts are not expected to be changed- start with about 10psi more to start
• Always verify by measuring sag point
• Fork rebound setting may be about 1 click slower than similar fork on non-Levo, but rebound speed should be
about the same. Rebound setting must balance the spring pressure
TRANSPORT
Is it allowed to transport the Levo on a rear-mounted car rack?
• Yes
