We tend to think that a ride isn't considered epic unless there isn't a little scrambling off the bike and a good hike-a-bike or two added to the mix. The Pearl Izumi X-ALP Summit Mountain Bike Shoe is a technical one designed to deliver superior comfort and durability for aggressive all-day comfort and all-mountain riding. Its rugged construction lends maximum durability when deep in the wooded backcountry or exposed desert slickrock. The X-ALP Summit uses a seamless upper that cradles the foot preventing any seams or hotspots that could lead to irritation. The closures consist of two lower hook-and-loop straps and a 1:1 Anatomic Buckle Closure System further up to dial in fit while removing pressure from your instep.Inside the shoe, a supportive footbed cushions what your suspension doesn't soak up, and the lightweight EVA midsole makes walking while off the feel like you're wearing non-cycling sneakers. The shoes don't forget pedaling efficiency though, and the nylon composite shank allows efficient power transfer to the pedals helping you up and over steep pitches without hammering your feet on long descents riddled with rock gardens. On the sole, Vibram Megagrip lugs provide outstanding traction giving you exceptional grip on loose trails or if you're dabbling in some 'cross. The shoes are 2-bolt MTB cleat compatible with a released cleat mounting area allowing plenty of space to clip in while tucking in the cleat far enough to prevent interference with grip or tap dancing on hard surfaces.

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.
