Product Description

Details

Specialized Comp Road Shoe '17

This is the first shoe in the Specialized hierarchy with the micro-adjustable secure fit of a Boa speed-dial closure, once reserved for Specialized's £200-plus S-Works shoes.

Or, as Elvis said, the angel's gonna wear my red shoes.

This new improved-for-2017 version of the Comp Road shoe has an all-synthetic leather upper (Specialized sneaked some nylon mesh into previous versions). Perforations on the top of this year's model introduces ventilation without compromising the uppers.

A road shoe that's easier to walk in
What's more, if you are wary about upgrading to real riding shoes with Look/SPD-SL style cleats because they are challenging to walk in, check the Specialized Comp Road Shoe's sole which has a raised lip at the heel and another under the toes. These raised edges are very discreet yet they effectively minimise cleat contact with the ground when you walk in them. These raised edges are rubber-faced to make them among the most stable and least slippy road shoes you can walk in, yet they won't compromise the shoe's pedaling efficiency.

  • The uppers are mostly a smooth, supple, hard wearing synthetic leather, complemented by fast drying mesh panels over the top of the foot.
  • Specialized's lightweight Boa S2-SV dial closure offers on-the-fly tunability and dynamic fit.
  • Two regular Velcro straps complement the Boa.
  • This sole registers 6.0 on the Specialized stiffness index.
  • That is, not quite as unyielding as Specialized S-Works shoes, yet sufficiently thin and stiff to optimise pedaling efficiency, and to isolate the foot from pedal pressure.
  • The sole takes 3-bolt Look / Shimano SPD-SL-style cleats.
  • Please note that cleats don't come supplied with shoes - they come supplied with pedals or as spare parts.
  • Eye-catching reflective detail at heel level.
  • Weight: 580g - we weighed a size 43 pair.
  • And, of course, it's a Specialized Body Geometry shoe.

Specialized BG (Body Geometry) Shoes
Specialized employed Dr Andy Pruitt, renowned U.S. author, sports scientist and national coach, in the development of their Body Geometry range of shoes. BG Shoes boast a special footbed which optimises the foot's position and thus helps eliminate pressure on both the knee and the foot bones when you pedal. It is easy to understand why Specialized BG shoes are the most popular shoes in the pro peloton.

Specialized BG Shoes incorporate 3 Body Geometry elements in their footbeds and the orthotic outsoles.

  • The Varus Wedge corrects the foot angle for optimal alignment of the knee and the foot when pedalling.
  • The Longitudinal Arch Support does what it says on the shoe box.
  • The Metatarsal Button lifts and separates the metatarsal bones (the long bones of the forefoot) to help prevent the compression, numbness, discomfort and hot spots you can experience when riding in traditional cycling shoes, which can be so snug, they compress the nerves and arteries between the metatarsal bones.

'The Comp Road Shoes offer the security and adjustability of our high-end Boa® road shoes, plus they're paired with a nylon sole and Body Geometry technology to deliver best-in-class performance and value.'
