X-ALP Summit Cycling Shoe - Women's by Pearl Izumi
We think that the best mountain bike adventures involve a little sporadic rock scrambling on foot, or a river crossing or two, and it's apparent we're not the only ones, with the Pearl Izumi Women's X-ALP Summit Mountain Bike Shoes. Designed to deliver, the X-ALP Summits are perfect for all-day support and comfort when you're carving your own backcountry trail, or lapping desert singletrack shadowed by massive saguaros. 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 bike 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 recessed 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.
