Specialized BG Tahoe Sport

Our review

Great shoe for light summer duties both on and off the bike

The lightweight Tahoe strikes a good balance between light duty riding and off-bike looks and comfort. The Vibram sole is almost as comfortable as a pair of training shoes, while providing enough support for some light SPD pull and push.


While the mesh and synthetic leather outer didn’t prevent any splashes or rain entering the shoe, it did dry quickly afterwards, which made for an ideal summer shoe. A few testers found it narrower than the usual Specialized BG, so best to try before you buy. The Tahoe Sport is available in a women’s version too.
