Specialized sums up their S-Works 6 road shoes in two simple phrases: explosive speed and superior comfort. The S-Works 6 is Specialized's stiffest and most efficient shoe ever. Combine that with a Body Geometry sole and footbed that optimizes hip, knee, and foot alignment, the Padlock heel system that locks your feet into the shoes, and independent Boa closures for a custom, on-the-fly fit, and you have one incredibly comfortable, efficient pair of shoes. Asymmetrical titanium cleat bolts rotate to allow for even more flexibility and range for cleat positioning, while replaceable heel treads increase shoe longevity. Plus, strategically placed no-stretch fabric improves your efficiency and connection to the bike.
What makes the perfect cycling shoe? Is it exceptional power transfer? Superior Comfort? Undeniable style? The simple answer is 'yes' to all of the above. With the S-Works 7, you get a shoe with no compromises. We took a no holds barred approach to transferring every bit of your power to the pedals. The lighter and stiffer Powerline carbon sole is new and brought to you by the same team that developed Rider-First Engineering. Why's this special? Because it led to their lightest and stiffest carbon outsole to date. A completely refined Padlock Heel, meanwhile, packs in more comfort with the same exceptional heel hold that you found in the previous iteration. And finally, the space-grade Dyneema material used in the upper doesn't stretch when pulled on, making sure that your foot stays where it's supposed to. With these all features combined, you can be sure that Specialized kept in line with the motto "every watt is sacred." In the comfort arena, Specialized kept all of the Body Geometry features you know and love, like the Longitudinal Arch, Varus Wedge, and Metatarsal Button. Each one of these features have been ergonomically designed and scientifically tested to not only boost power, but also to increase efficiency and reduce the risk of injury. They also took luxury into account by designing the S-Works 7 to have form that complements its function, so you'll find seams that are bonded together, rather than sewn, cleaning up the lines and contouring to your foot with slipper-like comfort. The custom CNC'd alloy BOA dials add some panache, but they also feature durable spring clutch internals and precise, one-millimeter micro-adjustments that let you perfectly dial in your fit.

From the outset of the Torch 3.0 Road shoe design process, our goal was to create a performance offering as feature-packed as any top-end shoe. The challenge, however, was pulling this off at a palatable price. In order to achieve this, we utilized three strategically placed materials on the uppers that are welded together—TPU and mesh in the front and synthetic leather in the rear. This makes for a more comfortable and supportive front of the shoe. A stiff rear and heel cup, meanwhile, lock down your heel and keep all of your watts going into the pedals as efficiently as possible. This refined upper is combined with our legendary FACT carbon fiber sole to further ensure an efficient power transfer. Finally, we topped the Torch 3.0 off with two Boa S2-SV Snap dials for zonal closure, and a precise fit that leads to all-day comfort. - Body Geometry sole construction and footbeds are ergonomically designed and scientifically tested to boost power, increase efficiency, and reduce chance of injury by optimizing hip, knee, and foot alignment. - FACT carbon composite sole and torsion box construction is directionally rigid for outstanding power transfer: Stiffness Index 8.5. - Dual Boa S2-SV Snap dial closure for on-the-fly micro-adjustment, backed by the Boa Lifetime Guarantee. - Mesh, TPU, and synthetic layer upper are placed in specific zones for comfort and lock-down, and are thermobonded for a superior fit. - Standard Fit for support and all-day comfort. - Three-bolt cleat pattern fits all major road pedals. - Approximate weight: 248g (1/2 pair, Size 42)
Take the performance and Body Geometry ergonomics of our high-end road shoes, put them in an affordable design, and you basically have the Torch 1.0 Road shoes. For the closure, we added a single, lightweight Boa L6 dial that features tool-free snap replacement capability while also providing simple, on-the-fly micro-adjustments. - Body Geometry sole construction and footbeds are ergonomically designed and scientifically tested to boost power, increase efficiency, and reduce chance of injury by optimizing hip, knee, and foot alignment. - With a 6.0 Stiffness index, the injection-molded nylon composite sole is engineered to be moderately stiff and plenty light. - Lightweight Boa L6 Fit System for on-the-fly micro-adjustment, backed by the Boa Guarantee. - Synthetic upper for supple feel over the foot. - Reflective heel elements increase your visibility to motorists in low-light conditions. - Three-bolt cleat pattern fits all major road pedals. - Approximate weight: 290g (1/2 pair, Size 42)
