When Specialized set out to design the Women's Torch 3.0 Road Shoes, they made their goal to create a performance road shoe that's as feature-packed as many top-end options, while coming in at a more palatable price. In order to achieve this, they utilize three strategically placed materials on the uppers, that are welded together — TPU and mesh in the front, with synthetic leather in the rear. This makes for a more comfortable and supportive front of the shoe, while a stiff rear and heel cup lock down your heel and keep all of your watts going into the pedals. This refined upper is combined with Specialized's legendary FACT carbon fiber sole to further ensure an efficient power transfer. Finally, they topped the Women's Torch 3.0 off with two Boa S2-SV Snap dials for zonal closure, and a precise fit that leads to all-day comfort.
- Body Geometry sole construction and footbeds are ergonomically designed and scientifically tested to boost power, increase efficiency, and reduce chance of injury by optimizing hip, knee, and foot alignment.
- FACT carbon/composite fiber sole and torsion box construction are directionally rigid for outstanding power transfer: Stiffness Index 8.5.
- Dual Boa S2-SV Snap dial closure for on-the-fly micro-adjustment, backed by the Boa Lifetime Guarantee.
