Specialized Launch New High Performance ‘Ares’ Shoes

Comments Comments

Specialized have released their rumoured Ares race shoes, purpose-designed high-end cycling footwear tested to save the most marginal of gains, 1%.

Bicycling Australia are currently reviewing the shoes and can confirm the comfort, durability, feel and particularly the elimination of foot roll. 

The S-Works Ares strikes the balance between power transfer and long-ride comfort by incorporating a stiff chassis with a completely new closure design.

The key point of difference is an integrated internal sock made of a breathable woven synthetic that encapsulates the foot.

Tensioning is triangulated, thus ensuring retention is spread over a larger surface area. Twist the BOA’s and the foot is snuggly and comfortable enveloped inside the shoe. 

The S-WORKS Ares shoes will retail for $575 and are available in White, Black and Red. Claimed weight is 240grams (without cleat) in size 42.
