X-ALP Canyon Cycling Shoe

While the stiff carbon soled shoes make for excellent power transfer when you're on the bike, they can be pretty restrictive for backwoods adventures that might involve a few sessions of hike-a-bike across rivers and up near-vertical faces. For adventures that call for more versatility, reach for the Pearl Izumi X-ALP Canyon Mountain Bike shoes for Men. These lace-up cycling shoes give you the support you want for long days on the bike, but tread that can handle covering ground on foot and a midsole that cushions your stride for support from dawn to dusk.


The X-ALP Canyon shoes feature a bonded synthetic top with ample mesh panels that keep your feet from baking on hot trails. They are low-cut at the ankle to provide a light and fast fit that allows for natural ankle rotation off of the bike. While flex is good for miles on foot, a stiff sole is a must for power transfer on the bike, so Pearl equips the X-ALP Canyon's with a nylon composite shank to maximize power transfer to the pedals, without compromising torsional flex for hiking. Underneath the shank you'll find a lightweight EVA midsole that cushions your steps comfortably, and a beefy carbon-rubber lugged outsole that provides directional traction on foot. The center of the shoe is ready for clipping in with 2-bolt SPD compatibility that sits recessed and out of the way of your lugs, so your cleats don't get hung up on rocks when you're making your way up steep faces.

Overall OK

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

The fit, comfort, weight, etc. with this shoe is great. Looks good, feels good. The only complaint, which is somewhat of a big deal, is that the top mesh stretches when your pulling the pedals up. This significantly reduces the amount of pulling power with a clipless pedal, and just feels odd.

This shoe uses loops instead of shoelace eyelets which I personally don't like. This is my second pair, one the shoelace loops ripped on my first ride. The return and replace process with CompetitiveCyclist was quick and easy. The second pair is holding up better and it's been about 7 months now. It's a great lightweight trail shoe which has decent padding. He padding around the ankle is very light but the heel and toe area has decent padding. I am impressed with the protection and coverage in toe box. The soles are stiff but not so stiff that it makes you walk like a duck. Makes it easy for when you have to hike-a-bike. I currently use these shoes with a set of CrankBrothers Mallets and they work very well. Didn't need to shim them or anything. I have used these shoes for downhill trails and park riding but it's really best suited for trail riding. It's a good looking shoe and don't regret my purchase though I wish they made a wide version but the fit, for me, is true to size.
