S-Works Recon Wide Mountain Bike Shoe

The S-Works collection showcases premier biking gear from Specialized, and the S-Works Recon Wide Mountain Bike Shoe delivers the mountain performance you demand on cross-country races. The S-Works Recon's carbon plate is the lightest, stiffest option that Specialized makes, and it's fine-tuned for transferring all your power to your pedal. The Dyneema mesh upper is bonded between layers of four-way stretch fabric and TPU for malleability in key areas and a formed fit. Extra room in the toebox provides better connectivity and overall comfort, while the PadLock heel counter locks your foot in place for a slip-proof feel.

Specialized also employed its scientifically tested Body Geometry to align your hip, knees, and feet for boosted power and reduced chance of injury. The footbed reduces hot spots by putting less pressure on nerves and arteries. A wedge underneath the footbed offers greater arch support, too. And for a little fashion with your function, Specialized integrated its custom S3 Boa dials; these CNC'd alloy dials add panache, precise micro-adjustment, and long-lasting durability. The titanium alloy cleat nuts rotate to position pedals and cleats with 5mm rearward.

Fabulous shoe for gravel

I have struggled to find a wide shoe that works with my feet -- high arch, high volume, moderately wide, and square. The Recon is a comfortable, high performance shoe and largely disappears, even when pushing hard on my gravel bike. I tried the Lake MX238 (recommended size was too short, heel slips, mid foot is excruciatingly uncomfortable, toe box is stiff, shoes are very heavy), Shimano RX8 Wide (too narrow and low volume-- the new last doesn't fit as well as the old last in the RP9), Sidi (Mega is too wide, regular is too narrow), and Vittoria (soft sole, hot spots/foot pain, poor tension control with the lacing system, collects rocks). The Recon, however, fits well, is light, and provides incredible power transfer. Even with the sloppy MTB pedal interface, the power transfer feels like my road setup. The built in wedge means I don't need to add one, saving space and adding comfort. The stiff sole has also improved the hot spot issues I have with other, softer shoes. This is a very refined shoe. I added the green Body Geometry SL footbeds for extra arch support. The extra volume of the footbeds does cause minor heel slippage. I have found a few minor issues with this shoe: no quick release with the boas (you must loosen tension and/or pop the wire off the inside Boa guid), some discomfort from the forward Boa, and the treads collect rocks (like most MTB shoes).

Is this shoe for woman too?

Hey Celia, great question, thank you for asking! Yes! Almost all shoes will be a unisex option, but you will have to pay key attention to the sizing charts to be sure you are making the correct conversion. Usually if you know your EU sizing, you will be able to size in to just about any shoe on the site!
