The Pearl Izumi Men's Pro Road V5 Bike Shoes are the product of months and months of development and dedication to create the best performing shoes ever. These shoes have a minimalistic approach which reduced the amount of material for the upper as well as the full carbon-fiber sole. Pearl Izumi also re-engineered the sole to concentrate carbon only where needed, resulting in a 22% weight savings over the previous plate. The Pro Road V5's sock-like fully knit upper ensures that you can tune each zone for the right level of flexibility and retention, plus there's no waste from trimming as the brand uses it exactly as it is finished and, by bonding nearly all of the seams, Pearl Izumi has created a shoe that weighs less and offers greater comfort due to less bulk. Achieve your best performance ever with the Pearl Izumi Men's Pro Road V5 Bike Shoes.
