Pearl Izumi – Ride Men’s X-Project 3.0 Cycling Shoe

Upper Material: synthetic
Closure: 1:1 anatomic buckle closure (25-degree angled strap)
Midsole: run-shoe EVA foam at heel

So much high-performance mountain bike shoes sacrifice traction and walk-ability with the intention to provide maximum power transfer to the pedals. No longer content with making this sacrifice, the Pearl Izumi X-Project 3. 0 Shoes deliver the powerful energy transfer of an absolutely rigid carbon fiber soled shoe, with out reducing its ability to grip over rough terrain and flex in the proper places if you end up walking over impassable trail hindrances. So, what is the X-Project 3. 0’s secret to delivering powerful energy transfer with out sacrificing traction or flex over hike-a-bike sections? Pearl outfitted this shoe with a whole-length carbon fiber sole plate that is tapered to supply just enough flex if you end up walking and mountain climbing over trail hindrances and loose dirt surfaces. Run-shoe EVA foam placed under the heel dissipates affect and alleviates discomfort if you end up mountain climbing over craggy, rock-strewn trails. Co-molded rubber tips placed over hollow TPU lugs provide tenacious grip (for a cycling shoe, that may be) with out adding excess bulk or useless weight. And because there is a full-length carbon plate, you’ll be able to still benefit from the superb power transfer needed for rapid acceleration and quick uphill bursts. The shoe’s closure is composed of a 25-degree angled strap system that follows the anatomic curves of the foot for an exact are compatible. The higher buckle securely tightens to take away slop inside the shoe, whilst the lower hook-and-loop straps protected the mid and fore-foot for an exact are compatible.
