Pearl Izumi X-Alp Summit
$209.99
The X-Alp Summit is a great shoe for all-day mountain bike adventures. Fully redesigned from the ground-up, the X-Alp Summit shoe receives trickle-down technology from our flagship X-Elevate trail shoe, including a Nylon composite sole that balances pedaling efficiency with walkability and a Grippy Vibram ECOSTEP rubber outsole that will help you navigate the gnarliest hike-a-bike sections. An L6 BOA Fit System works alongside the Velcro toe strap to provide a comfortable, secure fit. The synthetic leather upper features a plethora of perforations to improve ventilation and allow your feet to dry out after creek crossings. Mountain biking can be rough work, so we reinforced the toe box to ward off rock strikes. - BOA Fit System with L6 dial for a secure, comfortable fit - Seamless, perforated synthetic upper for comfort and breathability - Reinforced toe box provides impact protection - Grippy Vibram ECOSTEP rubber outsole - EVA heel cushioning increases comfort and walkability - 2-bolt SPD cleat compatible
Pearl Izumi X-Alp Launch
$219.99
Mountain bikers who ride flat pedals deserve shoes with as much advanced technology as those who ride clipless, which is why we developed this flat pedal shoe with a BOA Fit System to provide unrivaled fit and comfort. The redesigned Launch Flat builds on everything we love about riding flat pedals: freedom of movement, versatility, walkability; and it kicks all the downsides to the curb. The Launch uses a lightweight, quick-drying upper, constructed from durable Cordura fabric made with recycled content. We partnered with the rubber experts at Goodyear to develop a tread compound that's both sticky and long-wearing for our PinLoc Outsole. The result is a sole that is wider for more surface contact and uses a chevron tread design to capture pedal pins, keeping your feet planted and in control. - BOA Fit System with L6C dial lets riders fine-tune fit while they ride - PinLoc Outsole with premium Goodyear rubber provides outstanding grip to keep you in control - Seamless, perforated upper is breathable and quick-drying, made with durable recycled Cordura - Nylon shank provides stiffness for pedaling comfort and efficiency - Reinforced toe box for added protection - EVA foam midsole cushions impacts - Designed specifically for flat pedals (not clipless compatible)

The heel features a 1cm rise to make walking easier, and the sole is set up to give you the option to use a two-bolt or a three-bolt cleat. - Bonded Seamless Upper delivers all-day riding comfort, breathability and durability - L6 Boa system with sequence routing for micro-adjustability and secure, even closure - 1:1 Composite Power Plate with carbon fiber forefoot insert provides lightweight stiffness and durability (stiffness rating 8) - BioViz reflective elements for low-light visibility - EVA foam and rubber heel bumper gives stability and walking comfort - 3-bolt road cleat & SPD compatible

Pearl Izumi X-Alp Launch SPD
$229.99
For mountain bikers who ride clipless pedals and want a sleek, street-inspired look, we offer the Launch SPD. This first thing you'll notice about this revamped shoe is the use of a BOA Fit System, rather than laces. The switch to a BOA Fit System gives riders the ability to easily adjust the fit while riding, and you'll never have to worry about snagging a shoelace in your drivetrain. We used Cordura fabric made from recycled content to construct a brand new upper that is both lightweight and durable. The Launch SPD is built around a 3/4-length composite shank that adds stiffness under the cleat for pedaling efficiency while allowing enough flex at the toes for hike-a-bike moments. - BOA Fit System with L6 dial lets riders fine-tune fit while they ride - Vibram ECOSTEP outsole delivers the perfect blend of grip, traction, and durability - Seamless, perforated upper is breathable and quick-drying - Recycled Cordura fabric is durable and eco-friendly - Reinforced toe box for added protection - EVA foam midsole cushions impacts - 2-bolt SPD cleat compatible
Pearl Izumi X-Alp Gravel
$239.99
A great shoe for gravel riding needs attributes of both road and mountain shoes. Equally at home on gravel, XC trails, or all-day adventures.

Then, we cut the upper from a durable, 1-piece synthetic leather and added perforations to let feet breathe. A single L6 BOA closure provides equal pressure across the instep. Extra toe protection helps with errant stones and any extended or uphill hikes. A short EVA insert at the heel provides noticeable vibration damping to reduce fatigue on longer rides over rough roads. - Seamless perforated synthetic upper for improved breathability and comfort - L6 Boa system with sequence routing for micro-adjustability and secure, even closure - 1:1 Next Step Nylon composite sole does what no other can: deliver uncompromising pedaling performance and confident off-the-bike hike-ability - Reinforced toe bumper for added durability and protection - TPU lugs deliver off-the-bike confidence - 2-bolt SPD cleat-compatible

Pearl Izumi X-Alp Launch Mid WRX
$249.99
If you find yourself digging dirt jumps or railing loose and loamy trails, a bit of extra ankle protection can be a great thing. That's why we made the Launch Mid WRX. This mid-top flat pedal shoe is constructed on the same platform as the Launch Flat, with added ankle and heel protection and a gusseted tongue to keep out dirt and debris. Because trail conditions can be highly variable, the Launch Mid WRX uses a water-repellent membrane to keep the elements at bay. Laces can be a hassle when covered in mud and grime, so the Launch Mid WRX relies on a BOA Fit System to make fit adjustments a breeze. The rubber experts at Goodyear developed a compound that is sticky and long-wearing, which we mold into our chevron-shaped PinLoc tread to keep your feet planted and in control, even in slippery conditions. - PinLoc tread pattern provides a secure pin engagement - Mid-top design with ankle strap and gusseted tongue provides extra support and keeps debris out - WRX treatment sheds water - Water-resistant Cordura fabric is durable and helps shed moisture - Reinforced toe box for added protection - BOA Fit System with L6C dial lets riders fine-tune fit while they ride - Goodyear premium rubber compound is grippy and long-wearing - EVA foam midsole cushions impacts - Designed specifically for flat pedals (not clipless-compatible)
Pearl Izumi X-Alp Elevate
$279.99
Simply put, the X-Alp Elevate is a mountain bike shoe for mountain biking. It's not focused on power transfer at the expense of walkability, nor is it a skate-style shoe with cleats attached. Our premier mountain bike shoe is designed for comfort and efficiency on rides that you will describe to your friends as "epic". We updated the X-Alp Elevate with features that make it lighter, more comfortable, and even more capable of exploring the trails less traveled. All-day rides are as much about efficiency as durability, so we removed weight from the synthetic leather tongue and upper. We kept the tried and true Vibram ECOSTEP outsole with EVA cushioning, so you can walk with confidence when the trail gets a bit too techy. Last but certainly not least, we added a second dial to the BOA Fit System, so you can dial in your perfect fit. - BOA Fit System with dual L6 dials to fine-tune fit - Seamless synthetic upper for comfort and durability - Perforated tongue for improved breathability - Reinforced toe box provides impact protection - Grippy Vibram ECOSTEP rubber outsole - Midsole made with 20% renewable algae-based Bloom material - EVA heel cushioning increases comfort and walkability - 2-bolt SPD cleat compatible
Pearl Izumi Gravel X
$349.99
Our premium gravel shoe blends the lightweight and stiffness of a road shoe with the durability of a mountain bike shoe. The Gravel X is ready for your fast gravel adventures with a full carbon sole to maximize power transfer. The glove-like fit of the 3D knit upper, combined with the micro-adjustable BOA Fit System, gives the Gravel X unrivaled comfort on day-long rides. This knit construction and perforated tongue are breathable, lightweight, and quick-drying. We know that gravel grinding can be dirty work, so we wrapped the toe and edges of the Gravel X in a scuff-resistant TPU layer and incorporated a mud-shedding open-tread sole design. - 3D knit upper for a glove-like fit - Micro-adjustable BOA Fit System with IP1 dial makes on-the-bike adjustments a breeze - Full carbon sole maximizes power transfer - Scuff-resistant TPU layer around toe and sides enhance durability - Wide-spaced tread provides grip and sheds mud - 2-bolt SPD cleat compatible - Fit: Runs small; order half size up
Pearl Izumi Pro Air
$549.99
When it came time to develop our ultralight road shoe, we weren't willing to sacrifice stiffness or comfort in the pursuit of weight savings. Weighing in at a feathery 150-grams for a size 42, the Pro Air is the lightest shoe we've ever produced, and we did it without cutting corners. We joined forces with the carbon experts at Ruckus Composites to develop a revolutionary new carbon sole design that is 20-percent lighter than the impressively light Pro Road V5 sole, all without sacrificing stiffness. We weren't willing to compromise durability or comfort either, so the Pro Air uses a mesh laminate upper with zonal construction to reinforce critical areas while shedding weight from regions where it isn't needed. Despite the paltry gram count, the Pro Air is still fully-featured with a replaceable insole and lace keeper to keep the laces securely in place. - 150-grams for a size 42 - Ultra-light carbon sole developed in conjunction with Ruckus Composites - Mesh laminate upper construction strategically orients material where it's needed most - Supportive, replaceable insole with a ventilated design - Lace-up design with lace-lock

Fizik Vento Powerstrap R2 Aeroweave
$519.99
Vento Powerstrap R2 Aeroweave is a pure racing shoe: the lightest and most breathable model in the fizik performance range, engineered with an innovative high tenacity net-like structure which is coupled with our stiffest carbon sole. The pursuit of reducing weight and increasing ventilation, while maintaining support and protection led our designers and engineers to the development of a new material used in the upper. Called Aeroweave, it's an advanced woven fabric that interlaces lightweight nylon fibers with filaments of thermoplastic polymer. This blend of threads creates a material with an open, net-like pattern that is extremely airy, yet highly resistant and resilient. The Vento Powerstrap R2 Aeroweave's upper is so intensely vented that the riders' socks are visible through it. Aeroweave is a malleable material and moves to effectively cradle the foot, but its tenacity delivers the support and containment required for a high-performance racing shoe. The Aeroweave upper is complemented by Powerstrap, fizik's innovative Velcro closure designed for an enveloping fit. While most traditional Velcro closures just pull together two sides of the shoe's upper, in the Vento Powerstrap configuration a ribbon wraps around the foot, providing secure containment using just two straps. The instep and the midfoot are separately adjustable for customized fit and compression. These straps have been streamlined to make them even lighter and stronger. Vento Powerstrap R2 Aeroweave also features a whole new outsole: the R2 outsole's engineered carbon-fiber layup saves weight and delivers increased stiffness. With an index of 10, the R2 is the stiffest outsole in the fizik range. A wide vent inlet and deep internal channeling provide a cooling airflow, contributing to temperature management. The cleat positioning is slightly further rear-wards compared to traditional settings, to optimize pedaling efficiency and reduce knee compression, especially well suited to very aggressive, forward aero positions. - Aeroweave: extremely breathable, high-tenacity net-like upper structure - Powerstrap: foot-wrapping Velcro closure designed for an enveloping fit - R2 carbon outsole: optimized cleat positioning, high stiffness, and lightness tuned for power transfer - Weight: 205g (size 42 - 1/2 pair)
