Pear Izumi’s Project E: Motion will feature Road, Trail and Tri shoes designed for efficient and fluid running. E Motion is inspired by Efficiency and Designed for Motion (EM) and is designed for quick transition while running. This week we will focus on the trail specific model. The neutral EM N1 Trail is oriented to the trail running with its aggressive, multidirectional outsole. The dynamic heel to toe drop design offers 1mm at initial contact and 4.5 mm at mid stance. The forefoot includes a protective rock plate during rocky descents. Pearl Izumi uses its seamless upper design throughout this entire line. The EM N1 Trail weighs 9.6 oz and will be available Spring 2013.
