Vado is the vehicle for everything from daily commutes to fast workouts to longer-than-planned adventures—an electric bike for life. The smoothest-riding e-Bike experience yet, Vado is designed to boldly take on the ever-changing landscape you’ll encounter as a daily rider, carry whatever you need it to, and keep you riding more often.
Redesigned geometry puts you in the best position for everything from workouts to commutes while comfortably keeping your eyes on busy roads. We took learnings from the speed a road rider seeks and the maneuverability a mountain bike rider needs. The rider's position on the Vado instills confidence and, at the same time, optimizes the rider's ability to efficiently power from A to B.

Since 1974, we’ve had one goal: Innovate and inspire to improve riders’ lives. So, when we developed our first electric bike in 2009, we knew it had to ride and feel like a great bike first—something we’d really love to ride ourselves. We wanted you to feel like you were on a “regular” bike, but that somehow, you’d grown superhero legs. Our core mission still hasn’t changed. It’s now, and forever will be, our promise for every Turbo: It’s You, Only Faster.
Taking a motor and battery off the shelf would be easy, but we never compromise by just doing the “easy” thing. Instead, we develop our tech in e-Bike-obsessed Cham, Switzerland, and we tune the ride at our Morgan Hill, California headquarters. We carve our own path to deliver electric bikes that ride like they’re truly you, only faster.
Bicycles and products are generally shipped via FedEx and tracking information will be provided to you once en route. Shipping time typically takes from 6–10 business days. Bikes will be shipped 80-90% assembled and we encourage customers to have a professional bicycle mechanic complete final assembly and tuning for performance and safety reasons. We offer a $50 reimbursement for this provided the customer gives proof of service. At that time, we will send a check for reimbursement and activate the manufacturer’s warranty.
We encourage local customers to pick up fully assembled and tuned bikes (free of charge) or inquire about our local delivery options. Delivery within a 15 mile radius of our shop is free when bikes are ordered online. Contact us immediately at 619-564-7028 or firstname.lastname@example.org after online purchase to make arrangements.

There are certain situations where only partial refunds are granted; Any item not in its original condition, is damaged or missing parts for reasons not due to our error; Any item that is returned more than 10 days after delivery. There are no returns or refunds offered for already applied labor or special order items.
Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item. We will also notify you of the approval or rejection of your refund. If you are approved, then your refund will be processed, and a credit will automatically be applied to your credit card or original method of payment, within a certain amount of days. There will be a twelve percent restocking fee. As mentioned above, we do not offer returns or refunds for labor or special order items.
