Although winning an XC World Cup is not in your plans, it does not mean that you value performance and comfort. The Recon 2.0 is your shoe. Inspired by the S-Works Recon, with the efficiency and comfort of Body Geometry, the Recon 2.0 puts all that performance at your fingertips. With our exclusive STRIDE toe-flex technology, the nylon sole is composed of TPU injected into the forefoot area to leave freedom of movement when throwing the foot to the ground, and providing a stiffness index of 6.0 when pedaling. We've also raised the heel for a more natural feeling when walking. For greater traction of the shoe either dry and wet or gravel and mud, we have covered the sole with the Slipnot compound. Rain does not have to be a problem, since the XPEL fabric that the Recon 2.0 carries repels water and is quick drying. You won't have to worry about whether they'll be dry for the next day. The BOA L-6-Snap together with the velcro on the forefoot provide comfort with an ideal fit to perform throughout the day, whether on a gravel route, on a trail or when setting foot on land.
