For those of you who don’t know, Pearl Izumi is a popular cyclist company that has transitioned into the running world and has come up with a way to offer their runners a smoother, more efficient running experience. They’ve successfully done this with their new Project E:Motion series, a line of neutral running shoes that officially kick ass in my book.

After getting to know Pearl Izumi and their brand a little better through the Project EM Road N2, I held high expectations for their light weight minimal trail runner, the Trail N1. Now that I was familiar with their dynamic offset technology and had an idea of what to expect as far as gate transitions and running efficiency, the standards were high to see the same results in their trail model.
