Recon 2.0 Gravel & Mountain Bike Shoe

Delivery Icon

We deliver! Just say when and how.

Just because winning an XC World Cup isn’t on your to-do list, doesn’t mean you don’t value performance and comfort. Recon 2.0 is your shoe. Inspired by S-Works Recon, with Body Geometry comfort and efficiency, Recon 2.0 puts all that performance within easy reach.

Using our exclusive STRIDE toe-flex technology, the nylon outsole uses a TPU injected forefoot for natural movement off-bike, while still providing a stiffness index of 6.0 for in the saddle performance. We’ve also lifted the heel for an even more natural feeling while walking.

To create traction off the bike in wet or dry, gravel or dirt, we’ve covered the nylon outsole with our SlipNot compound. If the traction's needed in the wet, you can also rest easy knowing the XPEL mesh used through the Recon 2.0 won’t get bogged down with water and will dry exceptionally quickly. No more wet shoes the morning after a wet ride.

An L6-Snap Boa and a Velcro forefoot closure ensure micro-adjustable comfort with a secure fit designed for all-day comfort and performance, whether your ride calls for open gravel, twisting single track, and even more than your fair share of hike-a-bike.

Great shoe but struggled with sizing

Great shoe but struggled with sizing. I really wanted to love these but the size 45 were too long resulting in the tongue pressuring the front of my ankle. And the 45.5 were too tight on my feet. Even after test riding, Specialized gave me a hassle free return with full refund. Great customer service.

Solid performer.

Very solid performer. I transitioned from Recon 3.0 to 2.0 due to price and I really can not tell the difference. These fit right. The 3.0's I had to break (The wire BOA system) was hurting top of my foot for couple of weeks. Not these 2.0's. Got these for 100 bucks so I thought it was a good buy as well.

Shoe plastic covering cracking and falling off

I had my shoes for 18 months now - very comfortable and good shoe, however the plastic covering is cracking and falling off, unfortunately out of warranty.

Bad tongue ruins good shoe

Overall great looks and footbed fit. Good stiffness and sole. But the shape and stiffness of the tongue area cuts into my foot/ankle on the instep/medial side. Torturous. Returned after one ride.

Weird fit

I wear a 44 in all my other bike shoes and went to a store to try these on but now after i ridden in them a bunch of times the fit is not what I had hopped for. They seem a little big on the sides even if I fiddle with the boa as it has just one the tension is not perfect. My foot big toe go numb after a while and I have to loosen them off for a bit to get the blood flowing then tighten them back up all while I'm riding. Might be selling these since I'm pretty sure since I bought them off the web site they won't take returns. One comment is they really don't fit true to size one 44 is not like the other (brand that is).

Pretty good shoe

I have only owned specialized shoes for 3 very good reasons; Quality of construction, fit and durability. However….these need done fettling when you get clipped in. Having only one tensioner means the centre part of the shoe does not tension the same as the top of the foot. It’s not a biggg but you might need to retention once you are clipped in. The Velcro strap is pretty redundant as there is hardly any material that it can snug up on my feet. They are a definite try before you but kind of shoe. But if they last half the time I owned the predecessor (7 years) at 1/2 price they are a good buy.’
