Specialized Torch 1.0 Road Cycling Shoes
The Torch 1.0 Road Cycling Shoes from Specialized might have an entry-level price point, but they borrow a number of designs and features from further up the range. The Boa® L6 dial closure is a fantastically secure and easy to adjust system, that spreads any pressure across the forefoot, and the supple synthetic upper with mesh venting is supremely comfortable over the toes. The shoe also benefits from Specialized’s Body Geometry technology in the sole and footbed which increases power, efficiency and comfort as well as reducing the risk of injury. The sole has a three-bolt pattern compatible with most road pedal systems.
Pedal cleats are available to be purchased separately.
