The all new S-Works Torch Lace Road Cycling Shoe 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 Specialized make, the S-Works Torch Lace starts with Body Geometry - identify a problem, solve it with design, 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 their 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 light weight retention of laces and watching every gram - from the carbon outsole to the upper material - the S-Works Torch Lace weigh 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 colour ways the S-Works Torch Lace is at home whether you chase finish lines or mountain tops before sunset.
