It is hard to tell but Cav's look like the BOAs are offset in the same way they are on the s-works shoe. Seems more likely to me that he's just on a different colour variant.

Same ATOP ratcheting wire closure as on the DMT Prisma 2.0s.. (which have been working very well for me over the past 80 hours of training on Gran Canaria)

My riding partner just got a pair of the black 2013 S-Works shoes. They look pretty light and sweet! Jealous.

Now I need to replace my Mavic Huez with something new and equally as good, if not better!

What are the other top pros wearing?

Can you give me some suggestions.

I sometimes get asked about the use on unsponsored equipment. It’s well known that Specialized is one of the best shoes on the market, but many guys are not allowed to ride them because of the bike sponsor conflict, so there are a lot of unbadged Specialized shoes going around in the peloton.

Hard to improve on what you're already riding (IMHO). The 2013 yellow ones are sweet.

It seems like this year Bontrager decided to sponsor some guys with their shoes line like JTL (Sky) and Henderson (Lotto).

I believe I went 1 size up from my normal shoe size, but the best option still is to put your feet in them in a shop. While you are at it have the shop mold the insoles for you (this makes you as happy as a hippo) and then make them happy by swiping your credit card.

Thanks for the reply.

I don't think I'll have that luxury, hence why I'm asking.

Not sure if stores will even get them over here!
