Brand new from Pearl Izumi, the P.R.O. Leader road shoe. Retention comes courtesy of a BOA system that’s located on the top/center of the foot, which gathers equally from both sides for a more custom fit. Pearl also says the center location improves aerodynamics. MSRP is $270.

Zipp has updated its Service Course line of bars and stems. The primary driver with the new bars was improving fit. Modified ramp angles allow for a more natural transition from the top of the bar to the brake hoods. This reduces the need for up-rotated bars and helps keep the drops in a more usable position. There are three reach offerings: 70mm, 80mm and 88mm. High end SL bars retail for $110, while standard Service Course models are $55.
