A seamless transition.

Step up your game in the Pearl Izumi Men's Elite RD IV Shoes. Weighing in at a claimed 265g, these shoes are a few grams heavier than Pearl's top-end P.R.O. Leader III but come with a significantly reduced price tag. With a stiff carbon sole and comfortable upper, they strike an ideal balance for races and long training rides alike.

Pearl fashions the Elite RD IV with a fully bonded upper featuring a seamless interior that conforms to your foot while reducing pressure points and hot spots. The shoe fastens with a bi-directional, micro-adjustable Boa reel across the top, and its wide anchor points evenly distribute pressure across the upper. This particular type of Boa closure pulls the wire with equal tension on each side of the shoe, uniformly tightening the cable instead of pulling excessively from one side. A hook-and-loop strap spans the forefoot for additional adjustability and customization of fit.

Underfoot, Pearl's ELITE 1:1 Power Plate sole incorporates stiff, unidirectional carbon for efficient power transfer. Direct-Vent technology allows cooling airflow on hot days and water drainage in the event of an unexpected rainstorm. To cap it off, the Elite RD comes with replaceable heel bumpers to extend the lifetime of the shoe.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 42.5

High end shoe with a normal price tag. I will get the obvious out of the way right now; yes they are light and stiff. The shoe has great ventilation and felt snug with the Boa retention system. The dial does sit in the center of the tongue, which aesthetically I’m not a huge fan of, but in terms of comfort was great. On the fit of the shoe, they do run a half a size small; I wish I would have tried a 43 and not a 42.5, which is what I wear in all their running shoes. The toe box is snug, of course the 43 would have helped widen it out a bit but I was never uncomfortable at all with them. I would certainly recommend this shoe if you’re looking for stiff, light and comfortable shoe without paying a week’s rent for them. Any further questions on these please feel free to contact me:
