Specialized Recon 3.0 Gravel and Mountain Bike Shoes


The Specialized Recon 3.0 Gravel and Mountain Bike Shoes are for KOM/QOM chasers, race podium challengers, and all devotees of speed. You don’t need to sacrifice comfort, durability, or off-the-bike capability when searching for an efficient race-ready shoe with the scientifically proven performance benefits of Body Geometry. A shoe that looks good, feels good, and is light yet capable can be hard to find—well, it used to be. Meet the all-new Recon 3.0, a not-so-distant relative to its S-Works counterpart: made for speed, durability, comfort, and now lighter than ever before.


  • Body Geometry: Like every Body Geometry shoe, the Recon 3.0 is ergonomically designed and scientifically proven to improve comfort, increase performance, and reduce the chance of injury for every rider with patented technology, while improving power by 7 watts - validated by science.
  • Stride Technology: Stride technology provides a flexible outsole and upper around the toe box combined with a stiff cleat pocket, enabling the shoe to easily flex when walking and remain stiff and efficient when pedalling.
  • High Performance & Efficiency: The Recon 3.0 pulls its cable routing, Boa dial placement, and carbon plate directly from our halo S-Works Recon. Dual, premium Li2 Boa Dials offer optimized adjustability and fit, while the cable routing ensures a locked-in feel, minimizing movement within the shoe. The carbon plate keeps the Recon 3.0 lightweight and stiff for optimal power output on the pedal, not to mention shaving 10 grams off our previous generation.
  • Body Geometry sole and footbed are built with purpose and backed by science to boost power, increase efficiency, and reduce the chance of injury by optimizing hip, knee, and foot alignment.
  • Carbon STRIDE toe-flex technology allows for natural toe movement off-bike but remains stiff for pedalling: Stiffness Index 10.0)
  • Fully-welded upper reduces seams for superior step-in comfort.
  • Independent BOA Li2 dials for on-the-fly micro-adjustment.
  • SlipNot rubber tread for confident traction on all terrain with removable toe studs.
  • Two-bolt cleat pattern fits all major MTB pedals.
  • Approximate weight: 345g (1/2 pair, Size 42)

Who are Specialized?

Specialized is one of the best-known quality bike brands in the world. Started by a group of riders in 1974. A fact which has guided their decision making ever since.

" Made for riders, by riders."

They strove to make the best quality tires when quality tyres weren't around. When people wanted to ride cruisers in the dirt, they made the first production mountain bike. When roadies wanted to go faster, Specialized doubled down on carbon and built their own wind tunnel.

Bikes like the Allez, Rockhopper and Stumpjumper have developed followings and reputations of their own. Specialized has a reputation for making high-end, high-quality bikes. Specialized bikes always look great with high-quality paint and sensible sizing hel0s you get the right bike each time. If you buy a Specialized bike you can be guaranteed it will do what it is supposed to and will last.
