The Pearl Izumi Race II road cycling shoe is probably the most effective way to ensure every ounce of energy is effeciently utilized. They'll provide you with miles of powerful, efficienct cycling at speeds you used to dream about maintaining.
The Pearl iZUMi design process has no constraints based on "that's-the-way-everyone-does-it" thinking or complex techno mumbo-jumbo:
The 1:1 Power Plate is made of carbon fiber and specifically selected, graded of nylon. The result is lightweight, torsionally stiff and durabable; the benefit to the rider is reduced flex. 100% of your effort is transmitted into munching miles.
Ultra-low 7mm stack height increases power transfer and makes you feel more connected to the bike. Nobody wants to ride feeling like they're standing on stilts!
So, we know the shoes aren't going to eat into your power output, but they also have to protect your feet and be comfortable. Pearl Izumi's exclusive technologies are:
Direct-Vent: This allows air circulation through the mesh and through the soles. This is a lightweight shoe, so if you're heading out in bad weather we suggest wearing waterproof socks.
Longitudinal Arch Support: to improve pedaling efficiency you need to use your whole foot and that requires support and stability along the length of the sole.
Select 1:1 Heel Cup with Molded Power Band: this prevents heel slippage or lifting when you're out of the saddle.
1:1 Anatomic Buckle Closure follows the natural shape of your instep to eliminate hotspots and pressure areas. A wide range of adjustment in the buckle mounting lets you customize the shoe fit.
All Pearl iZUMi products are created based on a philosophy of no complexity and no compromise. The Road Race 2 shoe is perfect for riders who deman performance and expect results.
