Pearl Izumi's mid-priced Elite RD III Road Shoe places equal emphasis on power, weight savings and comfort.
The new Elite 1:1 Power Plate sole is made from uni-directional carbon fiber for ultra-light stiffness. Its concave shape provides an ultra low 7.0mm stack height, enhanced rigidity at the cleat area, and anatomic support. Specific longitudinal arch support has also been built in, furthering comfort and power. Direct-Vent technology offers cooling and drainage, and a new replaceable bumper under the heel provides an additional degree of wear and tear resistance.
The 1:1 Anatomic Buckle Closure follows the natural anatomic shape of the foot to eliminate hot spots and relieve pressure from your instep. An adjustable buckle mounting plate delivers ultimate fit and flexibility. An Elite 1:1 Heel Cup synthetic leather lining offers maximum heel hold and power transfer.
The Elite Insole features strategically placed dual density EVA padding for underfoot cushioning and support. A once-piece upper delivers a second skin fit, minimum weight and maximum comfort.
The claimed weight for the Men's Elite RD III Road Shoe is 265 grams in size 43. White/Black/Green.
