The new Pearl Izumi P.R.O Leader V4 shoes don’t look like anything special from the top side, just another high end carbon shoe, right? Wrong!
The underside you are treated to a brilliant iridescent electroplated sole that just looks so good. Those of you after a subtle bit of style then the P.R.O Leader V4’s will be the shoes for you.
dhb Aeron Carbon D
Following the name of its clothing range, the Aeron Carbon Road D, which costs £120, is the company’s top end shoe that weighs in at a claimed 257g for a size 42.

The bike is without doubt fast and rides beautifully on those wide tyres. Though tech editor Symon Lewis had a few issue with twitchy handling and cross wind nasties. Swapping out the wheels did make a small difference but it doesn’t change the fact that this isn’t a bike for everyone or the everyday.
