Description of PEARL iZUMi Men's E:MOTION TRAIL N1 v2 Running Shoe 16115016 - Shadow Grey / Cactus – 4TU
The trail-running purist’s dream shoe, the new Trail N 1 features improved outsole traction and just enough protection and cushioning to let you fearlessly bomb down technical descents while retaining a lively, responsive underfoot feel. The slipper-like Seamless Upper and motion-focused E:MOTIONTM midsole ensure a barely there and beautifully smooth running experience.
Project E:Motion Dynamic Offset Philosophy Inspired by Efficiency, Designed for Motion.
Pearl Izumi understands that the foot and leg are never static while running. The heel to ball-of-foot difference changes as the foot goes through the stride. It makes sense, mechanically, that the shoe’s offset should also be dynamic to create a more fluid running experience.
Most running shoes utilize a static offset, while PROJECT E:Motion delivers a smoother sensation with an ever-changing heel to ball-of-the-foot offset throughout the stride. A simple, common sense platform that intuitively adapts to your body to support how you run.
This newly crafted midsole drives you forward with an intuitive flow and a natural, no-slap, no-crash perpetual motion effect—making your run smoother and more efficient.
