X-Alp Launch Cycling Shoe

You’re dedicated to the flat-pedal lifestyle and need a dedicated shoe that doesn’t mix styles. The Pearl Izumi X-Alp Launch captures the endearing features of clipless-design but offers a sole that is entirely platform-specific. A durable Cordura upper material provides seamless support that cradles your feet, whether railing enduro sections or joshing it up at the local eatery afterward. A BOA Fit System with an L6C dial make adjustments easier mid-trail and reduce snag potential that may come with standard laces.

The heart of the X-Alp is within its mid-sole and outsole construction. A supportive EVA midsole cushions the trail impacts so you’ll stay in control, and a nylon shank and reinforced toe box offer enhanced stiffness and protection. Pearl Izumi works with Goodyear to equip the X-Alp with a PinLoc Outsole using Goodyear’s premium rubber for confident traction and power delivery on and off the pedals.


  • Master your adventure with fully capable flats
  • Goodyear rubber sole offers massive grip and durability
  • BOA dial reduces snags and time-lag getting to the trail
  • Bonded, seamless uppers are lightweight, tough, and perforated
  • Keep your little piggies happy with a reinforced toe cap
  • Stay surefooted with directional lugs that grip

Runs a bit large

I returned this product before using it
Size Bought:
5' 7"

I loved the look (yes, with bright orange dial :-) ) feel and comfort, but I feel that only one BOA dial, maybe too high on the shoe, makes it a bit tough to properly tighten it around the foot, if you compare the "hugging" that you can achieve in road cycling shoes. I could escape with a size 10 with thicker socks, but a bit of too much toe length (and I have a wide foot), so seeking a 43.5 or US 9.5
