Pearl Izumi has combined an airy sport upper with the award-winning outsole to produce the X-Alp Drift II, a summer biking shoe usable in or out of the pedals.

  • Stiff nylon plates provide toe spring, flexibility and rigidity for pedaling and enhance off-the-bike comfort
  • Lightweight, soft EVA midsoles absorb shock, return energy and provide cushioning; additional support in heel pad supplies cushioning off the bike
  • Quick drying, highly breathable mesh and synthetic uppers offer protection and durability; low-cut construction reduces overall weight
  • Linings feature a barefoot construction that provides a comfortable fit with or without socks
  • Pearl Izumi X-Alp Drift II features a quick lacing closure system that takes just 1 pull for an exact fit
  • Rugged carbon rubber lugged outsoles supply superior traction
  • SPD compatible (cleats sold separately)

Pearl Izumi X-Alp Drift II Mountain Bike Shoes - Men'sis rated4.5out of5by4.
Rated5out of5byfromJust what I was looking forThe shoes fit well, are light weight and durable, and signifigantly improve traction on bike pedals. The speed laces make them quick and easy to put on and take off. I purchased them for spinning in a gym and so far so good!

Rated5out of5byfromVery comfortable for a long rideThe best thing I like about the shoe was its comfort and style I didn't feel like I was wearing a bike shoe

Rated4out of5byfromPedal PowerMost of my riding is in cratered city streets. I wanted a bike shoe that was safer to ride in and easier to walk in. Not being cleated-up is the way to go for me. The stiff soles are great for pushing the pedals. The closure is fast and easy but didn't seem to crank tight like strings do. The cable tension is even from the top of the shoe to the bottom, sometimes I like a tighter fit in the front of my shoe. ( I still like the way that I can better adjust a "shoestring" more snuggly either at the top or the bottom of a shoe to adjust the fit. ) I can always replace the cable lock system with real shoestrings, but I'd just as soon wait for the cable system to fail first . The slushy fit is not a problem since you are not pulling up with this cleat-less shoe. I put my coupon down on this one and believe it to be a great value.
