Specialized releases Limited Edition ’74 S-Works Road Shoes, New XTERRA Triathlon Shoe
Specialized cycling shoes have been a huge success for the company. Designed around the Body Geometry fit system, Dr. Andy Pruitt and the Specialized team have created footwear used by more than 70% of the Pro Peloton today. The 2012 collection offers a wide range of road, mountain, and recreational footwear, along with a few limited edition pieces that are sure to turn heads. More details after the break…
The 2012 season boasts small structural changes to the proven Boa lace system found on S-Works shoes, including a stainless steel cap which will improve durability, and a new degree limiting stopping feature. Specialized founder Mike Sinyard’s original cycling shoes from the 1970′s are the inspiration for the new Limited Edition ’74 shoe. Made of Kangaroo leather, this retro looking shoe is packed with modern technology, performance, and comfort. Only available for a limited time and retail for $400. The ’74 shoes will also have a matching pair of fingerless gloves available from Specialized this coming season for $45.
Also available for the 2012 season, Specialized is now offering their first Off Road Xterra-style Triathlon shoe. The Trivent Terra is literally the industry leading Trivent Triathlon shoe married to the sole from the S-Works line of MTB shoes. Features include a lengthened strap for easy foot entry on the fly, super thin and breathable mesh upper, micro neoprene lined heel cup and strap for comfort with or without socks, and a massive heel tab for pulling on shoes with barely functioning fingers after a cold swim. The most exciting feature seen on the new Trivent Terra is the Easy Arch Fixing Point for flying starts. Available now, these shoes retail for $300.
