PERFORMANCE CYCLING SHOE MAINTENANCE

                              THIS FAQ CONTAINS IMPORTANT INFORMATION.
                          PLEASE READ CAREFULLY AND STORE IN A SAFE PLACE.
Your Specialized shoes, depending on model year, have different types of BOA systems. Figures 1, 2, and 3 show the different
models and types. Figure 1 is the 2010 S1 Dial; Figure 2 is the 2008 to 2010 LSR Dial; Figure 3 is the 2005 to 2007 B-Type
Dial. This will help you in determining which dial you have in case you need to contact Specialized for service and/or warranty
information.

                                         WHY DO MY BOA DIALS FEEL LIKE THEY HAVE A LOT OF FRICTION?

This happens mostly with MTB shoes because of dirt contamination or with road shoes in the winter when road grit gets lodged in the lace guides. The
best solution is to brush/blow off any obvious dirt, lube the lace guides with spray silicone, then cycle the lace through the guides a few times. For more
detailed information, see the BOA Cleaning and Maintenance PDF.

                            WHY DOES THE BOA LACE FEEL TOO TIGHT ON MY INSTEP, BUT LOOSE ON MY FOREFOOT?

This is caused by guides that have too much friction from dirt and grime. Apply lubrication (spray silicone) at the locations shown in Fig. 4, which will
redeem the superior glove-like fit of the BOA closure mechanism.

                                                   WHY WON’T THE LACE UNSPOOL FROM THE DIAL?

More often than not, the lace has become tangled on the spool. Using the BOA dial pin tool or the T6 torx tool, remove the dial. Lift out the spool and untangle
the lace. Re-install and enjoy the perfect functioning of your BOA-equipped shoes.

                                            HOW DO I STOP THE LACE FROM TANGLING IN THE LSR DIAL?

Be sure to fully eject the lace from the dial when removing your shoes. The lace quick release can help with this. If your shoes didn’t come with a quick release,
it is available aftermarket through your Specialized dealer. To fully release, pop open the BOA dial and pull the quick-release until the lace stop coming out.

                                               WHAT HAPPENS IF I CRASH AND DAMAGE MY BOA DIAL?

Replace the dial through your local Specialized dealer, www.specialized.com, or www.boatechnologies.com.

                                                             WHY DOESN’T MY BOA STAY TIGHT?

To tighten, check that you are rotating the dial in the proper direction. On the right shoe, it’s towards the toe; on the left shoe it’s towards the heel.
Refer to Figs. 5 & 6 for proper tightening direction. It’s clockwise on both shoes if you’re looking directly at the BOA dials. If you wind the dial in the
wrong direction, the spool will wind the lace but will release once the lace is under tension. In this case, unwind the lace entirely and then wind the dial
in the proper direction.
