Some of the best rides require a bit of time off the bike, hiking through sections of unrideable terrain. The Women's X-Alp Peak Cycling Shoe makes the most out of these types of rides, whether you're carrying your bike up the mountain to reach an epic descent, or balancing on wet logs during a stream crossing. It comes down to the sole, which features Pearl Izumi's 1:1 Next Step design, and a sticky yet durable Vibram rubber compound. A 3/4-length carbon composite shank allows the shoe to flex just ahead of the ball of the foot for a natural walking gait, without compromising efficiency when you're putting power to the pedals. The lightweight seamless upper delivers breathability and all-day comfort, and shrugs off errant rock strikes thanks to added toe protection.

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.
