By utilizing laces, the shoe offers 12 separate points of tension adjustment to dial in the perfect hold across the entire foot, while the removal of plastic hardware allows the engineered mesh upper to adapt to more foot shapes for a sublime, supple fit. The S-Works 7 Lace fits like a leather glove, but you know, for your foot and made of engineered mesh and carbon.
But laces have more to bring to the party. The removal of plastic hardware also shaves considerable weight. One size 44 S-Works 7 Lace weighs a feathery 236 grams, so you’ll be looking good and feeling good when the road points uphill.
The foundation for all this is the technology pioneered for the S-Works 7. The Powerline™ carbon outsole—Specialized's lightest and stiffest outsole ever—creates the ideal platform for power delivery. The PadLock™ heel comfortably holds the rear of your foot, while the engineered mesh upper delivers a stable yet supple hold for all-day power delivery.
Whether you’re looking for a relaxed coffee ride shoe, a lightweight climber, or a supple and adaptive fit that compliments your race shoe, the S-Works 7 Lace marries classic style to race-winning heritage and performance.
