Project Description

For tempo workouts and racing alike, the updated Pearl Izumi EM Road N1 gets the job done.  This neutral shoe uses a dynamic offset midsole for a fluid ride, with soft Energy Foam for impact protection.  The platform for this shoe has been widened to allow for more natural foot movement, while seamless overlays over the upper provide lightweight structure.  With enhanced flexibility and a lightweight design, this shoe is meant for speed.

Use for training and racing
Low drop – Dynamic offset: 1 mm at initial contact to 4.5 mm at mid-stance

Moderate cushion – 19 mm

Pros:
  • Midsole rocker encourages a quick turnover for mid foot strikers
  • Seamless mesh upper is very light weight and breathable
  • More cushion than the N0 makes it a good alternative for longer efforts
Keep in Mind:
  • Soft heel counter provides minimal support in the back of the shoe
  • Lower drop shoes may require a transition period when coming from traditional footwear
