Based on specialized typical product cycle and due to the fact that the website has not been updated with the 2021 colors of the current shoe. I wonder how soon we might be seeing the next iteration of the all conquering S-Works. Any thoughts...any one notice anything new on the feet during the tour or worlds

New shoes dont get made all that often? I think they just released the vent version this year.

they're not doing very well with product launches lately; probably need to pump the brakes. i guess there's a new boa dial out though and they have FOMO so they'll rush something that has an even bigger toe box and an even higher/sharper ankle cuff.

Seen this on the instagram account of Daniel Oss.
Not sure but they seem like a new model to me?

And even lighter, more fragile paint that scrapes off when you look at it wrong.

Finally some news. They sure look different than 6/7. New dials and no more velcro strap near the toes so the dials are further apart.

Here's some more photos I found on Instagram.

Saw the photo on Oss's feed and those new shoes jumped out right away. These new kicks look like a sizable departure from the SW7. Looking forward to seeing more details!

7 were shown at Tour Down Under and released few weeks after that, so unless someone has some inside info, that's the best guess so far.

I'm really satisfied with my 7's at the moment but curious what they're going to look like.
