Pearl Izumi Releases Their First Flat Pedal Bike Shoe: The X-Alp Launch

Pearl Izumi has just released their first flat pedal shoe ever: the X-Alp Launch. The Launch features a Vibram Megagrip dual-density sole, with softer rubber underfoot for grabbing the pins of the pedal, and harder, longer-wearing rubber for the toes and heels.

This shoe weighs just 340g in a size 42, which leads Pearl Izumi to claim that it’s light enough and comfortable enough for all-day riding.

MSRP: $150
