ACE Expert Review
Pearl iZUMi is a popular fitness brand, particularly among cyclists, and offers a broad range of sports-specific gear. The Men’s Attack Road II Cycling Shoe, which is comprised of a nylon sole and synthetic heel lining, is both lightweight and stylish. They feature two Velcro straps and one ratchet strap that can be adjusted during use. These shoes use the three bolt LOOK mount for cleats, which is the most popular, but this design will not work for those who prefer the two bold SPD-style cleats.
Overall, our reviewers felt that the Attack Road II Cycling Shoe compared favorably with more expensive models, which made them a good value for the price, and that they were a good choice for the moderate to serious road cyclist. Sizes tend to run small so ordering a full-size to one-and-a-half-size larger than normal is recommended.
What we liked:
- Lightweight and stylish design
- Features popular LOOK mount for cleats
- Compares favorably with more expensive models/brands
What we didn't like:
- Runs very small, so ordering the right size online may be a challenge
