Under Test: Pearl Izumi X-Alp Launch Shoes

Whether you use flat pedals to shred the gnar or for urban/utility riding, having more flat-pedal shoe choices is always a good thing. Pearl Izumi’s first flat pedal shoe–the X-Alp Launch–features an ultrasonic welded upper and Vibram®Megagrip rubber outsoles. Available in men’s and women’s versions, the $150 shoe hits the shelves in January, 2018. Pearl Izumi will also offer a clipless version.

Stay tuned…
