S-Works Superstars - Our Cutting-edge Products Getting Rave Reviews
Weâ€™ve had some truly stellar reviews come in over the last month or so for our awesome Sub 6 road cycling shoes, our mountain monster, the Stumpjumper 6Fattie, and our raw speed-machine, the S-Works Tarmac.
All three have been precision engineered by our S-Works team, who are dedicated to providing our Specialized athletes with the very best tools to compete and win on the biggest stages of cycling. If it bears the S-Works name, you know itâ€™s going to be good. Really good.
Thatâ€™s why we were pleased, but not surprised, when these glowing reviews came in.
S-Works Tarmac DAâ€“ Cycling Plus
This monthâ€™s issue of Cycling Plus saw something pretty unusual. They gave a five star rating to a bike on review. Now, a five star review is basically like saying a bike is perfect, right? So theyâ€™re few and far between. Weâ€™re pleased to say that the five-star bike in question was our very own S-Works Tarmac DA. The guys at Cycling Plus sure did seem to like it, and we canâ€™t blame them.
Talking about the frame they called it â€œa wonderful blend of glorious excess and some stylish, organic designâ€, while they used the phrase â€œsurgical precisionâ€ to describe the handling. Their verdict on the bike as a whole package?
â€œThe S-Works Tarmac is a ready-to-race stunner and an utter delight to rideâ€
Not too bad, eh?

S-Works Stumpjumper 6Fattie â€“ Outside Online
Another blistering bike from the S-Works lab, the Stumpjumper 6Fattie allows you to rock mid-fat tyres on the legendary suspension of the much-loved Stumpjumper. OutsideOnline took a Stumpy 6Fattie for a test six months ago and have been putting it through its paces non-stop since then.
There was always going to be a little skepticism about the 6Fattie, given that itâ€™s a new tyre size to the industry that comes hot on the back of the 29er trend, but the bike has truly silenced critics, with the reviewer at OO saying:
â€œWe havenâ€™t had this much fun riding mountain bikes in a long time. And while there are a handful of great new offerings in the size, the Stumpjumperâ€™s massive tire clearance and innovative frame design won over pretty much every tester who tried it.â€
The frame design heâ€™s talking about is Specializedâ€™s SWAT, which allows you to open up a hatch on the downtube and store your riding essentials inside. Genius.Read the full review here or shop the Stumpy 6Fattie
Sub 6 Road Cycling Shoes â€“ Bike Radar
The Sub 6 takes everything the S-Works team knows about aerodynamics and applies it to a laced cycling shoe, for those riders who want a little bit of retro style with their speed. To streamline the shoe as much as possible, the team shed the BOA dial closure system and replaced it with laces, plus a lightweight Warp Sleeve cover, to smooth out any micro-drag caused by loose laces.
Bike Radar has the shoes on review and chacaterised them as â€œsupremely light, stiff and aero â€“ as well as comfortable and good lookingâ€, going on to praise the exceptional power transfer, â€œclimbing and sprint efforts are undiluted between foot and pedal.
