PEARL iZUMi X-ALP Gravel Shoe
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. We borrowed technology from our X-PROJECT so that neither walkability or pedaling stiffness suffer. Then cut the upper from a durable one-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
