The Pearl Izumi E:Motion Trail N1 is a nimble, low-drop ultra-worthy shoe that’s smooth as butter on and off the roads. We also know that they’re also fast as heck… given that Timothy Olson was wearing the Trail N1 when he set the Western States course record in 2012.
The purist’s dream shoe, the Project E:Motion Trail N1 is built to deliver the ultimate smooth flowing responsive ride. The glove-like fit coupled with the E:Motion midsole deliver a light and smooth experience. The Trail N1 offers great trail feel and traction with enough protection and cushioning for bombing descents over technical terrain.
