Product Description

Details

Specialized Sport Road Shoe '17

This - the first road bike shoe in the Specialized BG (Body Geometry) range - has been upgraded with a new all-synthetic leather upper.

(Specialized used nylon mesh on previous versions). Don't be put off by the synthetic tag. These vegan leather uppers are supple, hard wearing and look good. Plus, the leather is lightly perforated to make it more breathable.

The Specialized Sport Road Shoe is the first road bike shoe in the Specialized BG (Body Geometry) range.

That's significant when you consider Specialized BG shoes are the most frequently spotted on the pro peloton.

Specialized's genius is to make the fundamentals of such high-end technology available to everyday cyclists for the price you might pay for a decent pair of sneakers.

  • The lightweight injection-moulded nylon composite sole helps isolate the ball of the foot from pressure
  • 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 (very) short walks
  • The sole is drilled and threaded to take either 3-bolt (Look or Shimano SPD-SL-style ) pedal cleats and two-bolt SPD cleats (most road shoes only take 3-bolt cleats)
  • Being compatible with both pedal systems is a good thing - especially if you swap the pedals between, say your road bike and your commuter or mountain
  • Note that cleats come supplied with pedals or as spare parts, and never with the shoes
  • Offset three-strap Velcro lace-free closure
  • Eye-catching reflective heel logo.
  • Weight: 600g based upon weighing a pair of size 43 Specialized Sport Road Shoes at Bike Co-op HQ in December 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.

'Take the performance and Body Geometry ergonomics of our high-end road shoes, put them in an affordable design, and you have the Sport Road shoes. They have Velcro® closures for an adjustable fit, a comfortable design, and a composite outsole that provides just the ideal level of rigidity.'
