The best choice when the road points up, the Pearl Izumi Octane SL III road shoe is one of the lightest shoes available, and is designed to help you climb faster and keep your feet cooler. Used by top riders like Tejay van Garderen during the Tour de France, the Octane SL III is truly an example of less is more. The heart of any shoe is the sole, and the Octane SL III utilizes the feather-light and ultra-stiff Carbon 1:1 Power Plate to ensure that every watt of energy is converted into forward (and upward) movement. The minimalist 1:1 Anatomic Upper delivers excellent fit and comfort. The ultra-breathable mesh body of the shoe helps keep your feet cool on the hottest days, and vents the excess heat generated during hard efforts. The three hook and loop straps help make adjusting the fit on the fly easy, and also shave precious grams to keep the weight as low as possible.
