Dialed

Call them your dancing shoes. PEARL IZUMI's new silver OCTANE road shoes come with a patented titanium-and-carbon-fiber plate and a mini-reel so you can snug them up and go. At 10.5 ounces each, they're lighter than a good carbo load but stiff enough for any hammerhead. $400; www.pearlizumi.com
