Ares is the ancient Greek god of war and courage, often portrayed as the personification of sheer brutality and the physical valor needed for success in war. If that sounds like what it takes to win bunch sprints in the pro peloton, then Ares is an apt name for the newest member of the Specialized S-Works family of road cycling shoes.
