Strengths:    Stiff. Feel OK when riding

Weaknesses:    Can't get them off. I wore them to work one day. Got lauged at but, hey, they wouldn't come off :-)

Bottom Line:   
These shoes suck. Once you get them on, they do OK. Try getting them off. I dare you. The ratcheting mechanism on the upper most part of the shoe is extremely difficult to release. So you end up pulling them off and then messing with them to loosen them up for the next ride. Should have just used three velcro sraps or something that actually works well.

Strengths:    Very stiff, great ventilation and love the buckle fit.

Weaknesses:    Feel the vibration from the road at the seems between the carbon plate and the rest of the sole.

Bottom Line:   
Had been riding with SPDs and MTN shoes for 10 years and decided it was time for a real road shoe. Origianlly thought the Sport would be enough, but then tried these one. The buckle makes all the difference for a great fit. I over pronate ALOT and had always used orthodics in my shoes. The BG insert works great. When the LBS helped me install the cleats we had the front backing plate break loose inside the shoe. Held in only with a bad of glue. We think we got it fixed.

Strengths:    Stiffness and comfort

Weaknesses:    Not completely carbon, but does have a carbon forefoot.

Bottom Line:   
Very impressed. Whatever Specialized did, they did right. I bought a pair, because the LBS carried them and I needed a shoe quickly. My old shimano R215's tore during a spill. They were a little costly for a lower end Specialized shoe, however, they compare to competitors mid to top of the line shoes. Specialize put a lot into this shoe making it perform like hihger end models. Their new BG system instep really works as far a comfort and knee alignment. I've used many other brands and have found these to fit and perform nicely during crits and long club rides. They do size differently. I wear a size 11 running shoe (45 in Shimano and most other brands), but use a size 44 in Specialized. Unfortunately, Specialized products hold value and are hard to find at closeout or discount prices. It has been well worth it thus far.
