The Pearl Izumi X-ALP Elevate Mountain Bike Shoes just may have a craving for off-the-beaten trail adventures to rival your own, thanks to rugged construction and a build that offers all-day comfort for days of pushing into the backcountry on a fully loaded rig, chasing down the sun. The X-ALP Elevate use 3-layer uppers that hug your foot in with seamless design to extend durability for all-day riding, with perforations in the arch and forefoot to let fresh air inside, and mesh panels that wick away sweat so you can stay cool. The top closure uses both a IP1 Boa and a hook and loop toe strap so you can dial in a semi-custom fit with 1-millimeter micro adjustments for all day comfort.
On the inside the shoe decks you out with a supportive footbed for soaking up rough trails, and a lightweight EVA midsole for cushioning your flippers when you're off of the bike. Contrasting the soft and flexible midsole, the shank features a nylon and carbon composite construction that ensures stiff power transfer to the pedals to propel you forward, with just a touch of flex to maintain a natural walking feel when you roll into a moose head on and have to bolt off trail on foot. Vibram Megagrip lugs make sure your footing stays sure when you do have to bolt off trail, with directional tread to propel you forward as needed, and help you put on the brakes in the heel. The shoes are 2-bolt SPD compatible, with a unique cleat mount patch that features enough space to securely clip in, and tread surrounding the recessed cleat so you don't have to sacrifice walking capabilities to ride clipless.
