Product Details

Specialized Elite Road Shoe '17

With a ratchet buckle top strap, Specialized Elite Road Shoes are a step up from their Road Sport Shoes.

This ratchet buckle makes it easier to fine tune adjustment on the fly: tighter for out-the-saddle sprints, eased off should your feet swell in the heat.

  • This ratchet buckle's strap is particularly wide to spread the load on the pedal upstroke and thus reduce pressure.
  • The injection-moulded nylon composite sole is engineered to be moderately stiff and lightweight.
  • Measuring 6.0 on the Specialized Stiffness scale, the sole is stiff enough to make a noticeable difference to your pedalling performance, whilst retaining sufficient resilience for short walks.
  • The sole is drilled and threaded to take 3-bolt (Look or Shimano SPD-SL-style ) pedal cleats.
  • Note that cleats come supplied with pedals or as spare parts, and never with the shoes.
  • The uppers are a supple, hard wearing synthetic leather.
  • Mesh panels at the top of the uppers make these shoes faster drying.
  • Two Velcro straps complement the top ratchet buckle strap.
  • The three straps are offset to offer a more secure fit.
  • Weight: 632g based upon weighing a pair of size 43 Specialized Elite Road Shoes at Bike Co-op HQ in October 2016.
  • Be aware that cycling equipment specifications can change without notice so please regard our published weights as an honest but approximate guide.
  • Body Geometry sole and footbed optimise hip, knee, and foot alignment to improve performance and comfort. Read on...

Specialized BG (Body Geometry) Shoes
Body Geometry shoes are the result of a collaboration between Specialized bikes and Dr Andy Pruitt: sports scientist, author, one-time US national team coach and a world expert in cycling-enduced tendonitis.

The contoured Body Geometry footbed supports two key areas of the foot: the metatarsal and the longitudinal arch.

  • The raised metatarsal button section of the BG shoe's footbed spreads the metatarsal bones. This helps prevent pressure on the nerves and blood vessels, thus helping to reduce 'hot spots', swelling, and general foot discomfort.
  • The footbed's raised longitudinal arch support provides a stable platform to minimize arch flex and improve power transfer and efficiency.
  • The varus wedge slightly angles the forefoot to match its natural canted position, bringing the foot into full contact with the pedal and eliminating rotational movement of the knee, shin, and foot.
  • Combining these three elements means that, compared with riding in standard footwear (cycling or otherwise), a Body Geometry shoe helps keep your leg better aligned and encourages a smoother pedalling stroke, and therefore help prevent knee pain and strain.

'Designed for your daily commute, a demanding sportive, or an epic gran fondo, the Elite Road shoes feature 360-degree reflectivity for high visibility, and they're designed with Body Geometry technology for superior comfort and an intuitive ratchet buckle for a sure fit.

  • Body Geometry sole construction and footbed: ergonomically designed and scientifically tested to boost power, increase efficiency, and reduce chance of injury by optimizing hip, knee, and foot alignment.
  • Injection-molded nylon composite sole is engineered to be moderately stiff yet light: Stiffness Index 6.0.
  • Reflective elements at the heel, closure straps, and mesh for visibility.
  • Ratchet buckle and over strap for secure closure.
  • Synthetic and mesh upper with offset straps for great fit.
  • Three-bolt cleat pattern fits all major road pedals.'
