Product Details

Specialized Spirita Women's Road Shoe '17

The Spirita is a proper Body Geometry Road shoe built for riding efficiency and comfort on a women's last with a narrower heel than a gents' shoe.

This new improved-for-2017 version of the Spirita 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.

  • Women's fit with narrower heel than equivalent men's model.
  • This shoe is built on Specialized's Standard Fit last for all day comfort.
  • Supple, hard wearing synthetic leather upper.
  • 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 Specialized Spirita has a more grippy heel than most road shoes.
  • Offset three-strap Velcro lace-free closure.
  • 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.
  • Eye-catching reflective detail at heel level.
  • Manufacturer's published weight: 466g per size 39 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 Women's Spirita Road shoes are a true performer for any road enthusiast looking for simple style and affordable performance. They feature a three-strap Velcro® closure that provides a nearly custom level of fit, plus a forgiving, yet plenty stiff, composite outsole for reliable efficiency.'
