X-Alp Flow Cycling Shoe

If you're a mountain biker that prefers to ride flat pedals, you understand how critical it is to have a grippy shoe that keeps your feet glued to the pedals when the trail gets rowdy. The Pearl Izumi Men's X-Alp Flow Cycling Shoe does just that, thanks to a dual compound rubber sole designed for maximum traction on the pedals. Sticky siped rubber at the ball of the foot creates positive pedal pin engagement and stability, while chevron-shaped lugs made from more durable rubber are used at the toe and heel for hike-a-bike durability and scrambling confidence. The seamless upper uses minimal overlays for a lightweight feel that molds to your foot shape, eliminating hot spots and providing all-day pedaling comfort when you're on a big ride deep in the mountains.

  • A flat pedal shoe designed for unwavering grip and durability
  • Dual compound sole for confidence-inspiring traction
  • Tacky rubber in pedaling zone offers positive pin engagement
  • Harder rubber in heel and toe area for hike-a-bike durability
  • Lightweight upper with minimal seams eliminates hot spots
  • Traditional lace closure for a precise fit and all-day comfort
  • Lace lock keeps your laces away from the drivetrain
  • EVA midsole absorbs the shock from hard landings

Feel and looks good

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Good enough grip using Bondrager Pedals with metal pins

Shameful

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

Pearl Izumi should be embarrassed for making such a shoe. Build quality is great, comfort is great, walking and support are great. Weight is great (amazing actually). However, they completely missed the mark with its intended purpose, a riding shoe. The center patch on the sole (meant as the grip section), is only 1/16 inch thick and rock hard, super slick plastic. There isn’t even texture to the sole to prevent slip. I ride Diety Pedals and there is absolutely no grip whatsoever. Imagine strapping soda bottles to your shoes!!. I can’t figure out how this shoe got past their product testing. Shameful. Stay away.

Great shoe

If your looking for a good looking shoe to take you from the trail to town this is a great choice. Good pedal grip and all day wear comfort. Fit true to size.
