1. Torch 2.0 Road Shoes
The Torch 2.0 Road shoes are all about comfort—well, comfort and performance that is. Due to the materials, road shoes often feel stiff and uncomfortable. Specialized decided to address this annoyance head on.
To do so, they’ve implemented a 100% mesh and TPU construction on the Torch 2.0 that allows for more wiggle room in the toe box and a less constrictive, sock-like feel. The upper is then paired with a medium-stiffness FACT carbon sole and a rubber heel and toe that provide the perfect degree of off-the-bike traction.
For the closure, there is a single lightweight Boa® IP1 dial that features tool-free snap replacement capability, while also providing simple, on-the-fly micro-adjustments. Get this pair for only SGD $220.
