The Pearl Izumi Women's EM Road N1 v2 Running Shoe offers an extremely lightweight, smooth flexing feel with the responsiveness needed to maintain a fast cadence and set race day PRs. The 3 D Seamless Print Upper wraps your foot in ultra light support, with its 7. 4 ounce weight indicative of its featherweight performance. The N1 v2 is biomechanically suited for runners with a neutral to supinator gait. The 19 millimeter stack height offers a low profile feel for fast paced runs and races, but without sacrificing cushioning like other minimalist running shoes. Offering Pearl's Dynamic Offset midsole, the N1 v2 facilitates a gradual transition from heel strike through toe off. The result is a fluid, sublimely smooth transition, further enhanced by 1:1 Energy Foam along the forefoot for heightened response. Add in a hybrid sole comprised of blown and carbon rubber types for increased grip and abrasion resistance.
