Light up the ride in the Pearl Izumi men's P.R.O. Leader III Shoes. Weighing in at a claimed featherweight of just 235g and featuring a Second Skin upper and stiff sole, these shoes let your feet effortlessly float over the pedals. Get out of the saddle and attack with confidence that minimized rotating weight and efficient power transfer equals snappy acceleration and lightning fast turnover.
Pearl fashions the P.R.O. Leader III with its Seamless 0.9-millimeter Second Skin Upper, a revolutionary design that involves welding a non-stretch synthetic leather to highly breathable mesh. Dubbed the Power Web, this upper design conforms to your foot while eliminating pressure points and hot spots. As an added bonus, its synthetic material won't stretch or deform over time, further reinforcing durability and consistent fit.
The Leader III utilizes two micro-adjustable Boa dials across the top of the shoe for a secure fit with wide anchor points to evenly distribute lacing pressure and eliminate bunching along the upper. This particular type of Boa closure pulls the wire with equal tension from each side of the shoe, uniformly tightening the cable instead of pulling primarily from one side. Underfoot, Pearl's new 1:1 Integrated Power Plate loses its predecessor's lasting board while maintaining exceptional stiffness and achieving a minimalist stack height of just five millimeters.
