How To Derestrict a Specialized eBike in 2024

How To Derestrict a Specialized eBike in 2024

In this blog post we are going to explain how you can derestrict your Specialized eBike using a tuning chip. Before we start, please note that removing the speed limit on your eBike can potentially void your warranty, eBikes with the speed restriction removed are illegal and only to be used on private land.

What display does your Specialized eBike have?

Before we jump in to the different tuning chips for Specialized eBikes we need to establish what form of display your bike has. By understanding what display you have, it makes selecting the right tuning kit a breeze.

You can find your display below:

Mastermind TCU
MasterMind TCU
This display is commonly found on flagship models like S Works Turbo Levo or Turbo Creo SLs

LED TCU Display
Specialized TCU Display Stickers For Levo And Kenevo 2019 2021 

You'll find this display on 2024 mid-range models such as Turbo Levo Alloy & Turbo Levo SL as well as older generation Turbo Levo's from 2019-2021

Turbo Connect Unit (TCD) Display
Specialized updates Turbo Active line with new integrated smart features  and all-new Turbo Tero model | BikeRadar

Best Tuning Kit for Specialized eBikes with a Mastermind TCU

Levociraptor Gen3 for Specialized including SL

Our #1 pick for this display comes from Levociraptor. Released in 2024, this upgraded version works with all of the latest firmware updates. Here's some of our favourite features:

  • Accurate speed readings when riding derestricted
  • True plug & ride tuning with no specialist skills or tools required
  • App integration allows for custom speed setting & crash detection

Best Tuning Kit for Specialized eBikes with a LED TCU Display

Speedbox 3.0 B.Tuning for Specialized

Our #1 pick for eBikes with the LED TCU display comes from Speedbox. This Speedbox 3.0B tuning kit is new for 2024. 

Here's 3 reasons why you'll want to consider this tuning kit:

  • True plug & ride tuning no specialist tools required
  • Lifetime warranty
  • Access to the Speedbox app, giving you a load of advance features like; tuning control, custom max speed, motor lock, invisible mode and diagnostics

Please note, this tuning kit will not work with a SL models fitted with a Mastermind TCU (scroll back up to our first recommendation). Contact our team on support@ebiketuner.com if you're unsure if this kit is right for your bike.

Best Tuning Kit for Specialized eBikes with TCD Display

Speedbox 3.0 B.Tuning for Brose Specialized eBikes

Unlike the previous two models, this Speedbox is fitted to the motor itself. Due to how the TCD is fitted, it requires a different type of tuning kit. Installation does take a bit longer, you'll need the correct tools to remove the cover from the motor to gain access. Here's why riders love this tuning kit;

  • Simple activation using the handlebar controls or Speedbox app
  • Custom max speed, trip tracking & diagnostics 
  • Lifetime warranty 

If you are looking for a cheaper option and don't want the advanced features, you can opt for this standard version (same performance just none of the bluetooth connectivity)

Best Tuning Kit for eBikes with Brose motors (Non-Specialized)

If you own an eBike with a Brose motor that isn't Specialized branded (Fantic, Rotwild or Rockrider to name but a few). You might be wondering what tuning kit will work. The good news is Speedbox has you covered. 

Compatible with any Brose S, S-Mag, C or T motor. The Speedbox 3.0 B.Tuning for Brose Specialized eBikes enables you to derestrict your bike just like any Specialized rider can. The benefits of this kit are listed above. The only thing to note, you must select the B.Tuning version since activation may not be possible using your handlebar controls.
