    Specialized 'S-WORKS' logo font?

    This may seem like an odd question (mostly because it is an odd question), but I am trying to figure out what font Specialized used for the "S-WORKS" logo on my SL3 Roubaix?

    The reason is that I want to replace the wholly unattractive logos on my new 50mm carbon wheels with ones that I design and I would love to match the lettering to the logo font. No, this will not make my bike faster, lighter or perform better, it is solely intended to increase my Fred-Cred and to hopefully make my ride look cooler than yours.

    Knowing that a lot of cyclists are also geeks (me included) I thought someone on the forum might recognize the font or possibly know what it is. I promise to post photos of the complete project if someone is able to determine the correct font.

    Live long and prosper!

    It is almost certainly a custom font.

    More than likely a custom font, but this site may help with your font search

    It's a custom font. Try www.bikedecals.com - S-works is not listed but they might make something for you.

    True, it most likely started out as a off the shelf font that got transformed into a logo by tweaking a few things.
