If you ride off-road and use clipless pedals, Pearl Izumi probably has a shoe for you. Boasting no less than a dozen SPD-compatible models, the Colorado-based company offers kicks to suit everyone from XC racers to Enduro wannabes. And now, with the introduction of the new X-Alp Launch model, flat pedal riders can get in on the action.
Judging by the Launch’s slim profile and understated appearance, you might mistake the X-Alp for another urban or recreational shoe. While the Launch certainly ticks those boxes, Pearl Izumi designed the X-Alp to handle the abuse of all-mountain riding. From the dual-density Vibram® sole to the seamless upper, the Launch delivers the comfort and support you need for all-day riding.
