S-Works Trivent Triathlon Shoes
Specialized S-Works Exos shoes - Lightest shoes on the market?2017
One unexpected benefit to the rise of gravel riding has been the renewed relevance of cross-country mountain bike kit, especially for footwear. Trail riders may be gravitating towards more walkability and comfort instead of thinly veiled road shoes with tread, but those carbon fiber slippers that are only modestly useful for riding off-road are just the thing for gravel riders who are more concerned with maintaining the efficiency of their road shoes, and only have occasional need for ambling about. If you were to strap a S-Works 6 XC shoe to one foot, and a standard S-Works 6 road shoe to the other, you would be hard-pressed to tell them apart based on fit and feel. Combined with the dual Boa S2-Snap dials, the result is an incredibly secure fit; heel lift is wholly non-existent. That ironclad hold is in no way overly confining, though.

The FACT Powerline carbon sole is a completely new addition this year and is uncompromisingly stiff, while the thin footbed makes sure that nothing is lost in this area. However, the key to the excellent power transfer is actually elsewhere, in particular in the narrow heel, which really clamps your foot in place to prevent heel slippage. The slightly shiny area on the inside of the shoes is also made from a thermo-bonded fabric which is apparently impossible to stretch and which must also have contributed to keeping our feet firmly in place even when pulling up on the pedals in a ridiculous way in an attempt find a weakness in these shoes. One problem found with past versions of the Specialized S-Works 6 cycling shoes was that while the rest of the Specialized shoe range had a fairly standard fit, the S-Works shoes had a very narrow toe box that could cause discomfort on longer rides for riders with wider feet. Thankfully this issue was well addressed for the most recent iteration. The toe box is still far from the widest on the market, but is now at least brought into line with the rest of the Specialized range, making it much easier to make the step up from a lower model. This improved comfort on longer rides is also helped by the choice of retention systems on the Specialized S-Works 6 road shoes.
