Pearl Izumi ELITE RD IV Shoe - Men's

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.

October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
