Darkness Light Speed—three elements so intertwined they cannot exist without each other. Nothing in the universe moves faster than light, but before and after is constant darkness. Inspired by this interplay and the futuristic landscapes our riders move through, the Speed of Light collection is equally intertwined—bikes and equipment existing together—to create our most stunning collection ever.

Finding the perfect cross country race shoes can be challenging, but with the Specialized S-Works Recon shoes, we've made the choice simple. Exceptional power transfer? Check. Gram-counter approved? Check. Undeniable style? You got it. With the S-Works Recon, you get XC-focused mountain bike shoes that truly have no compromises.

We took a no-holds-barred approach to transferring every bit of your power to the pedals. The sole utilizes a rubber toe and heel for superior off-the-bike traction, while the pontoons are made of a harder TPU to provide excellent stability and power transfer to the pedal. A completely refined Padlock™ Heel, meanwhile, packs in more comfort with the same exceptional heel hold found in the previous iteration. And finally, the space-grade Dyneema™ material used in the upper doesn't stretch when pulled on, ensuring that your foot stays where it's supposed to. With all of these features combined, you can be sure that we've kept in line with the motto ""every watt is sacred.""

In the comfort arena, we've kept all of the Body Geometry features you know and love, like the Longitudinal Arch Varus Wedge and Metatarsal Button. Each one of these features has been ergonomically designed and scientifically tested to boost power, increase efficiency, and reduce the risk of injury. We've also taken luxury into account by designing the S-Works Recon to have a form that complements its function. You'll find seams that are bonded together rather than sewn, cleaning up the lines and contouring to your foot with slipper-like comfort. The custom CNC'd alloy Boa® dials add some panache, but they also feature durable spring clutch internals and precise one-millimeter micro-adjustments that let you perfectly dial in your fit.

The S-Works Recon embodies everything we know about footwear compacted into one shoe—with no compromises, no shortcuts—just explosive speed and superior comfort.
