X-ALP Launch Cycling Shoe - Women's by Pearl Izumi
In a world of clipless shoes, flats are often underrated. There's something about the ability to maneuver your foot around on a whim that gives not only a sense of freedom, but also control as you step off with ease, and tread ahead on foot to scope out a gnarly rock garden before diving in blindly. For those who enjoy the versatility of a flat shoe, the Pearl Izumi X-ALP Launch Mountain Bike Shoes make for the perfect partners in crime. These lightweight shoes secure you into place with bonded synthetic uppers and a seamless construction for all day comfort, and lasting durability. With lace-up closure they are near futureproof, allowing you to cinch things down to the perfect fit with no risk of broken boas or ratchets, keeping you free to ride where you want with confidence. The X-Alp Launch features an EVA midsole that cushions your foot when you're off the bike, and Vibram rubber outsole that keeps your tread locked to the ground. The outsole takes it to the next level though, not just using one kind of Vibram, but two, targeting your pedaling patch with siped Vibram IdroGrip that offers near instant pedal-pin engagement to keep you secure, and Vibram MegaGrip on the toe, heel, and arch with directional chevron-shaped lugs that keep your footing secure when you hike around.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
