Pearl Izumi Syncrofloat III
||Stiff and relatively heavy
Pearl Izumi has taken care of both long-term and short-term comfort in this shoe: the cushioning in the Syncrofloat has been beefed up so it's more durable, and it has an extra layer of foam under the sockliner to give a plusher try-on feel.
The profile has been lowered for a faster-feeling ride.
The float looks pretty formidable and it is a stiff, relatively heavy shoe, but don't be put off by that.
Our testers appreciated its generous padding and actually felt that it was a fast, responsive shoe – some commented that it was best for speedwork sessions.
Our wear-testers say:
"Excellent ride quality. A good comfortable shoe, which seems to encourage running on toes and therefore running faster." - Kev Wood
