Specialized have redesigned their top of the line road shoe for 2010. The Specialized Body Geometry S-Works Road Shoe is lighter, stiffer and more comfortable than it's predecessor. Some of the improvements over the 2009 model include a stiffer sole, better aeration with a mesh tongue, dual Boa dials for ultra fine tuning and most importantly a new colour scheme.
The new sole of the shoe features a hollow foam core construction allowing it to be lighter while still retaining rigidity. The tongue has been replaced by a mesh one as well as venting on the sides and sole of the shoe, allowing your feet to stay cooler in the hot Aussie climate
One of the more exciting new features of the S-Works road shoe, is the advancement of the securing system. The new system features two multi-directional S1 Boa dials for micro-precision and quick adjustment. By running dual dials it improves the closure of the forefoot, heel and ankle. The shoes also run an open cable guide design, which allows for less clogging and more improved drying capability. The 2009 shoes were amazing; however, Specialized have kicked it up a notch and produced this superb piece of footwear.
The shoes are set to arrive at Lifecycle by late December, so they might be a nice post-christmas gift to yourself. If you would like to find out more about the shoes and see a review by cycling news click on some of the links below.
