Break personal records, not the bank.

Making the big move from entry-level to advanced road shoes can be intimidating, and with so many features, and price tags that will make you shudder, we don't blame you for taking your time weighing the options. Thankfully, over time you'll find that technology has a tendency to trickle down from the top-dollar shoes to midrage, packing in top-tier features with a price that's a bit more palatable to the average cyclist. Pearl Izumi's Race Road V5 Cycling Shoe for women gives us a true example and ideal pick for seasoned vets, intermediate cyclists, and newbies looking to score support that will last for years.

The specs on this particular shoe don't stray too far from top end kicks, and as such we find it remarkable to hit the nail on the head for lightweight, stiff power transfer, and such an excellent fit at this price point. A 3-Layer Seamless Composite Upper offers nice breathability and eliminates any hot spots by adapting to your foot's shape allows you to focus on the ride and not aching feet. The bi-directional Boa closure pulls the laces from both sides ensuring equal tension, while the 1:1 Zero Distraction Upper Fit mitigates foot discomfort by eliminating excessive pressure on the soft tissues running along the top of the foot.

On the sole, the 1:1 Composite Power Plate with carbon fiber forefoot insert provides lightweight stiffness and durability ensuring that your power gets delivered directly to the pedals. Direct-Vent technology in the sole allows your feet some much-needed air circulation while the EVA foam and rubber heel bumpers let you confidently walk to the front of the line and order your Americano. And unlike most dedicated road shoes, these will work with 3-bolt road and 2-bolt mountain bike cleats so it's compatible with almost every pedal system on the market.

  • Shoes that pack in the features while shrinking the price tag
  • Seamless uppers improve breathability and reduce hot spots
  • BOA dial allows for a custom, foot-wrapping fit
  • Composite sole with carbon insert for efficient power transfer
  • Compatible with 3-bolt road and SPD cleats for versatility
  • EVA foam and rubber heel improve stability while walking

Great shoes

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Love the fact that I can use two different types of cleats. Very comfortable while riding! Easy on/off as well.
