Recon 1.0 Gravel & Mountain Bike Shoe

Delivery Icon

We deliver! Just say when and how.

With the Recon 1.0 our goal was simple—put S-Works Recon-inspired performance in a very accessible package. Easier said than done, but we’ve created a shoe with Body Geometry comfort and efficiency in a durable, dirt-focused shoe. So yeah, mission accomplished.

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. The Recon 1.0 is a double threat—efficiency at the pedals with comfort and confidence off bike.

To create traction off the bike in wet or dry, gravel or dirt, we’ve covered the nylon outsole with our SlipNot compound. We’ve also lifted the heel for an even more natural feeling while walking.

Three Velcro closures make slipping into the Recon 1.0 easy, and creates a 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.

Comfortable but not durable

I like the shoe and after replacing the Boa system on 2 shoes I was ready to give Velcro a try. I would give this 5 stars but the sole at the toe split after 5 rides. Likely a rock strike but it should handle light impacts in my opinion. Also half sizes weren’t available, that would have been better.

Very comfortable. "Just as good"

Very comfortable. "Just as good" as my other more expensive shoes with BOA, etc. Great deal, just no half sizes, but you can accommodate by using thicker or thinner sicks. Recommended.

Good shoes

Good shoes. I like the all velcro closures. The only problem I had is that I had to bend the tongue back because it rubbed against my ankle and hurt.

tick all the boxes.

Great product just like any other specialized. I used to hate clipped in shoes because of several factors, but my knee pain forced me to start using one. To my surprise, the SPZ cycling shoes have none of the downsides that I hate: This is my second spz cycling shoe, and it Fits my EE wide feet perfectly, and still looks like a narrow show from distance. The cleats will not hit the floor when you walk with this shoe, and the toe flex makes a difference when pushing the bike uphill on difficult sections. There is also plenty of grip when walking over rocks and slippery stuff. It ticks all the boxes.

Great replacement for my 24 year old cycling shoes

I had a pair of Shimano cycling shoes of a very similar design that I purchased in 2000. A piece of the hard rubber sole chipped off, and I was heading to Spain for a cycling trip. I visited local cycling stores and REI here in greater Seattle, no joy. I found these online, ordered them, and they arrived the day before my flight to Spain! I was able to install the cleats to mirror my old Shimano shoes, and these worked like a champ on the bicycle as well as walking around town. I ordered the bright orange color to increase my visibility tor drivers. Garish but effective!

I like them...

After years of mtb racing using higher level shoes, I found these Recon 1.0 shoes to be very comfortable, yet still performance oriented. Having three separate velcro straps really helps me get a proper fit that I usually don't need to readjust during my rides. And walking on them is so much easier than my previous performance shoes. At this point, I have two active pairs of these puppies with another new set always in reserve. Pricing was right!
