Specialized has released a very improved version of its Torch 1.0 road shoes, totally innovative cycling shoes at a tremendously competitive price, we tell you what they have changed with respect to the previous model and its new features that are sure to make them best sellers .
The philosophy of Specialized for its range of Torch shoes is to offer performance and innovation at all levels, we believe that with the new Torch 1.0 it has been achieved and they are today perfectly complementing the range of road shoes along with the Torch 2.0 and the S-Works 7.

Possibly they are the biggest novelty of Specialized for the 2020 season in terms of cycling footwear, especially because these road shoes have a recommended price at their released date of € 99.90, an aspect that along with the innovations in both design as in benefits they make them a winning bet in their segment of road shoes.
We can say that in addition to a design in the purest S-Works style, these Specialized Torch 1.0 have a completely renewed line that gives them a more competitive character with the naked eye thanks to the multi-perforated instep fabric already SPECIALIZED print on the heel in a blurred format, which is why it is not surprising that it reminds us of Specialized sneaker models of the higher range.
White design for the new Torch 1.0 shoes
Specialized defines its new Torch 1.0 as "more explosive" and "more affordable", they are really not at all misled, remember that for a launch with a price of € 99.90, these renewed Torch 1.0 has a lightweight Boa L6 closure which replaces the previous line of three velcro closures, with this we achieve an imporant improvement in terms of adjustment and stiffness in pedaling.
