S-Works Recon

S-Works Recon

Thirty years is a hell of a long time to obsess over the perfect shoe. Then again, the result is a hell of a shoe—say hello to the S-Works Recon. Incredibly lightweight, rugged and almost freakishly cozy, Recon is the perfect shoe for anyone seeking speed over dirt, gravel or mud.

When you need to go fast, and we mean really fast, S-Works Recon gives you the speed, durability, and comfort you to need to blaze your way to the finish of any ride or race—on any kind of terrain.

Our dirt-specific carbon outsole is super stiff, for the ultimate in power transfer. What’s more, our Body Geometry PadLock™ Heelcup and no-stretch Dyneema® mesh uppers lock your feet into the shoes, giving you the most efficient fit around. This means that every possible watt of power gets to your pedals for more speed.

They’re built to take a beating. We gave the Recon fully-sealed, alloy S3 Boa® dials, which offer precise, micro-adjustments, yet are also nigh impervious to dirt, mud, and dust. Durable TPU and Dyneema® uppers shrug off anything the trail throws their way. And when it comes to traction, Recon’s SlipNot™ rubber heel and toe tread boost your grip on hike-a-bike sections.

Comfort

Comfort

The features that make your foot perfect for walking—its natural tilt and shock-absorbing arch—can actually cause power loss and pain when you’re pedaling. On the down stroke, your forefoot angulation and arch cause the foot to collapse slightly, which leads your knee, shin, and forefoot to rotate inwards. This sideways movement reduces efficiency and strains your knee, so we designed the S-Works Recon to boost your comfort, improve pedaling efficiency, and prevent injury.

BODY GEOMETRY: PURE PERFORMANCE. ZERO PAIN.

With Body Geometry, every inch of the S-Works Recon has been ergonomically designed and scientifically tested to boost power, increase efficiency, and reduce your chance of injury.
