If you’re a fan of Specialized stuff, read “more” to see pics of some of their shoes, helmets, shades, women’s bikes, etc.  The Langster has a new Oriental paint theme option for 2009, complete with alternating gold and black chain links.  Snazzy.

Specialized had a number of women’s bikes with more feminine (but still bad ass) paint schemes.

They matched that up with some women’s helmets in new colors, too.

Their new S-works road shoe has a white/blue option to match their Saxo Bank pro tour team bike.

The S-Works Mountain Bike shoes come in white/black (above) or red/white (below) and use the same Boa rotary cable tensioner to tighten them as the road shoes.  Versus the buckle ratchet, this seems like a good way to keep their profile slim and reduce the likelihood of breaking it in a crash.  They weigh 335g per shoe (average) or 770g per pair.  There’s a cool little plastic loop at the very top of the tongue that the cable runs through to help keep it centered over your foot.

Their shades, which offer photochromatic lenses to darken in the sunlight, had a variety of new frame colors.  It’s hard to tell from this pic, but the top right model has a sparkly gold frame.

Their color specialists must have convinced the paint guys to get creative on the frames, too.  The had these various frame color options hanging around the booth.
