Speed of Light collection

Our riders are incredibly fast – perhaps not as fast as the speed of light, but pretty close. 

In celebration of the Olympic Games in Tokyo, we have released a limited edition collection which will be available in Specialized Concept Stores and online. The Specialized Speed of Light collection takes some of our finest products and reimagines them as the intertwining of darkness, light, and speed.

We’ve used striking colourways to blend our cycling equipment and bikes, promoted as one motion, a combined operation of fluidity and speed. 

In addition to being available in store, we will be running a sweepstakes competition from Sunday 25 to Wednesday 28 July, in which you can win prizes from the Speed of Light collection. Find out more about this and how to enter here

Let’s take a look at the collection in greater detail. 



The bikes

Whether you’re a roadie or cross-country shredder, two of our top-tier bikes have been given the Speed of Light makeover: the S-Works Epic cross-country race machine and the S-Works Tarmac SL7 road racer. Both bikes are defined by their winning pedigree and they are now available in the limited edition Speed of Light colourway. A gorgeous deep red and purple hue will have you standing out from the crowd whether you're at a local crit or racing a national championship. 

The Tarmac SL7 is one of the lightest UCI legal road bikes in production. The ideal all-rounder, it's as capable in a flat and fast criterium as it is a hilly Grand Tour stage. 

The Epic, meanwhile, is proven in elite competition, having reached more than 100 World Cup podiums.

The equipment

We’ve chosen to style the S-Works Recon mountain bike shoes as our flagship XC race shoe. They’re incredibly lightweight, and minimise power transfer losses with a stiff sole while maintaining breathability and comfort with our space-grade Dyneema™ material. 

The S-Works 7 road shoes have also been given a makeover, with a black to red fade across the shoe, perfectly blending in with the rest of our Speed of Light collection. Whether you’re racing across the Fuji Speedway or on the club run, keeping your feet comfortable is key to improving performance. The S-Works 7 shoes use bonded seams to allow the shoe to mould to your feet, while four-way stretch mesh encourages breathability in even the most humid conditions. 

The S-Works Evade helmet is also included in this limited edition collection, with similar detailing to the shoes. The Evade is a rare beast – it’s well ventilated without compromising on aerodynamics. Using cutting edge technologies such as MIPS SL, we’ve managed to create a helmet that is as beneficial at cutting through the wind as it is comfortable. If you’re keen on riding as fast as possible, the Evade can save you 50 seconds over 40km compared to a standard road helmet. A sophisticated yet aerodynamically favourable helmet, it’s no wonder we’ve included it in our Speed of Light collection.

The apparel

Whether you’re on or off the bike, you deserve to look good. The Speed of Light collection pairs style and function with our casual apparel range. The t-shirts in the capsule have subtle Specialized logos with the Speed of Light collection name printed on the front, while the longer sleeve options feature an Olympic-inspired graphic on the rear of the shirt and the collection name on the sleeves. Ideal for when you’ve finished your ride and are ready to watch the action in Tokyo, or for going on a leisurely ride to the bike park.

Using premium fabrics and high-tech construction techniques, we've created bib shorts and jerseys that barely feel like you're wearing them. Focus on your riding instead of what you're wearing with our custom pre-moulded chamois for ultimate comfort. The SL Air jersey offers supreme breathability for those hot and humid days, while our socks and caps keep you comfortable and protect your skin from UV rays. Both men's and women's kit is included in the collection, with deep red colours and graphics across the range.
