The S-Works Recon MTB shoes by Specialized - for perfect power transmission
The Specialized S-Works Recon are super stiff Cross Country shoes that make no compromises in efficiency, weight and style. A light carbon sole, the highly resilient Dyneema® fibres incorporated in the rear area as well as the comfortable Form-Fit forefoot ensure perfect power transmission to the pedal. Two BOA screw fasteners are responsible for lightning-fast precise adjustments. Added to this is the excellent heel grip and a replaceable, non-slip heel. Last but not least, due to the Body Geometry outsole and footbed, these shoes support a clean vertical pedalling movement, which improves performance and is easy on the knees.

FACT is an acronym for " Functional Advanced Composite Technology" and summarises all the know-how that Specialized has in the use of carbon fibre. It is a holistic approach, which primarily concerns the bike frames, but is found in many components such as handlebars, stems, saddles etc. The starting point is always the awareness for the needs of riders and the capability to fulfil them. Next, the selection of fibres, resins and fabric layers takes place; in this process the quality of the carbon and the arrangement of the fibre layers play an important role. It is important to find the right set-up for the project at hand and the intended location or rather the area of application. It is often necessary to differentiate from model to model at several points. In the final step, attention is paid to processing the material in a way that allows the desired advantages in terms of low weight, rigidity and stability to be achieved.
Body Geometry products from Specialized address the contact points between rider and bike. They are designed in collaboration with doctors, scientists and athletes to increase performance, improve riding comfort and prevent injuries, taking into account medical-anatomical aspects. Body Geometry features are found on Specialized saddles (padding, shaping), shoes (outsole, footbed, etc.) as well as gloves (padding).
