Why We Like The S-Works 7 Vent Road Cycling Shoe
The Specialized S-Works 7 Vent Road Cycling Shoe is one of those pieces of art that doesn't have to bid for your attention — it just knows it has it. The 7 Vent doesn't hide its intent either, as it takes all the superpowers of the S-Works 7 and adds precision airflow through strategically vented channels. Designed for peak-summer rides that make every small creek on your route looks like a five-star resort, the 7 Vent layers Dyneema Mesh on the upper and tongue to provide cooling airflow and a stretch-resistant structure for optimal fit and power transfer. Specific to the 7 Vent is the Vented Mouthport, which mirrors a vehicle's front grill and ports air directly into the front of the toe box — which if you've ever had suffocated toes, you'll know how valuable this feature will be.
Specialized drops the — symbolic — bottom out of the 7 Vent with massive ports that set themselves apart from other vented soles on the market with not only mesh screening but also fully open ports to quickly shed heat buildup. Excellent stiffness from the FACT Powerline carbon removes any doubt about whether your watts are going to the pedals, and the 7 Vent begs for breakaway attempts and monster sprint efforts.
During those high-power efforts, the PadLock heel cradle and BOA S3-Snap dials keep your feet stable and comfortable. Specialized uses pro-peloton athletes' feedback and adds the hook-and-loop strap to the forefoot, which affords you a maximal range of fitting from ankle to toe.
