From recent road converts, to sultans of gravel speed, the new S-Works Recon delivers pavement-bred performance to the gravel discipline. Guided by more than 100,000 foot scans from our RETÜL fit data, we recognized that both a standard and a wide carbon base plate would best serve the spectrum of human foot shapes. An internal I-Beam adds stiffness and strength, eliminating the need for additional bracing. The result is an intentional fit, that's stiff, comfortable, and tunable—to put the power down. Inside and out, Body Geometry technology is baked into the S-Works Recon. Driven by nearly two decades of development and validated by data, we ensure there is no pain points, only performance, where your body meets the bike. Through our creation of the Varus Wedge, Longitudinal Arch, and Metatarsal Button, your feet stay in their most optimal position when pedaling—as well as in line with your knee and hips. - High-density pontoons and new shims allow riders to tune their pedal interface for maximum efficiency and a road-like pedal platform - Features Body Geometry technology by way of the Varus Wedge, a Longitudinal Arch, and Metatarsal Button - Asymmetrical heel counter supports the medial side while removing material from the lateral side, allowing for a lower collar. - Using an Internal I-Beam adds stiffness and strength—eliminating the need for additional bracing and allowing the shoe to stay extremely lightweight - Zoned reinforcement across quarter and forefoot maximizes support while the updated BOA® routing improves lockdown—eliminating the need for a toe strap - Additional 3mm, 6mm, and 9mm pontoon shims for leg length discrepancy and cleat stacker available through Specialized Rider Care. - For a wider fit — the new base plate is 4mm wider than the standard width (8mm wider than S-Works Recon Mountain Bike Shoes). - 280g for a size 156
The all-new S-Works Torch Lace delivers the timeless, refined style of a lace-up with an unprecedented level of efficiency, lightweight, and comfort thanks to Body Geometry. It all adds up to a shoe that disappears on your foot, yet begs to be seen. Like every shoe we make, the S-Works Torch Lace starts with Body Geometry - identify a problem, solve it with design, and validate it with science - to improve comfort, increase performance, and reduce the chance of injury for every rider. Comfort: The S-Works Torch Lace utilizes our new forefoot shape - 4mm wider than the S-Works 7 - based on extensive 3D foot scans and Retül data. The upper features remapped zonal layering throughout. It remains incredibly supple to adapt to different foot shapes, yet won’t stretch over a long day in the saddle to ensure a secure, consistent fit. An asymmetric heel counter reduces hard touch points against the ankle and still delivers knee stability validated by our Human Performance team. Efficiency: Every Body Geometry shoe optimizes ankle, knee, and hip alignment for a stable and pedal stroke with our patented Varus Wedge, a 1.5mm outward tilt to the outsole. Thanks to the lightweight retention of laces and watching every gram - from the carbon outsole to the upper material - the S-Works Torch Lace weighs a feathery 200 grams in size 42. With an internal ‘I-Beam’ the carbon outsole provides the ideal stiffness-to-weight ratio for big efforts without adding excess grams, optimized by working with the best riders in the world. Style: Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and those that see the S-Works Torch Lace will get to admire them as long as they can hang on your wheel. With classic lines and understated colorways the S-Works Torch Lace is at home whether you chase finish lines or mountain tops before sunset. - New upper features reinforcement in key zones while also offering adaptive fit zones to create a disappearing fit on the foot. - Based on data gathered from Retül foot scans, the new base plate is 4mm wider at the ball than the previous generation of S-Works 7 shoe. - By optimizing its construction, the new carbon plate is 20g lighter than the S-Works 7. An internal "I-Beam" ensures it maintains the same stiffness as the previous generation. - An updated last makes use of Retül data to better match the shape of riders' feet, sloping more towards the lateral side to give a snug, close-to-foot fit. - Asymmetrical heel counter supports the medial side while removing material from the lateral side, allowing for a lower collar. - Laced closure maintains the most opportunity to customize fit along the entire foot. - Titanium alloy cleat nuts can rotate to position pedal/cleats 5mm rearward. Three-bolt cleat pattern fits all major road pedals. - Non-slip, replaceable heel tread with internally recessed screws for security. - Approximate weight: 200g (1/2 pair, Size 42).
Whether you're hunting for Strava PRs or looking to ride big elevation, the all-new Torch 3.0 is the perfect companion. Combining classic aesthetics, premium construction, and elevated comfort, the all-new Torch 3.0 is a not-so-distant relative to its S-Works counterpart. Sharing key features like a unidirectional carbon plate, dual-zone Boa closure, and a seamless upper, the Torch 3.0 is an efficient, comfortable, and dependable performance shoe. - Body Geometry sole construction and footbeds are ergonomically designed and scientifically tested to boost power, increase efficiency, and reduce the chance of injury by optimizing hip, knee, and foot alignment. - Unidirectional Carbon sole engineered to be stiff, yet light with a large rubber heel and toe for off-the-bike traction. - Dual BOA Li2 dials for dual direction micro-adjustments and pop release - Seamless upper constructed from mesh, TPU, and with zonal reinforcement to maximize lockdown and comfort - Internal heel counter provides a supportive and secure heel fit - Three-bolt cleat pattern fits all major road pedals. - Approximate weight: 288g (1/2 pair, Size 42)
