Description

Durable efficiency.

The new Pearl Izumi Men's X-Project P.R.O. Cycling Shoes perch atop the X-Project line with their efficient carbon composite sole and a comfortable upper that's more than up to your next XC or cyclocross challenge. The stiff sole is complemented by an outsole featuring molded rubber tips on hollow TPU lugs that lend enough traction to dig through mud, rock, sand, and any other challenging conditions you may encounter en route to the finishing tape. The EVA foam heel takes a cue from cushioned running industry technology, helping to reduce the impact on your joints if you end up having to hike or run repeatedly throughout a long ride or race.

Pearl Izumi shapes the upper from its 3-layer Seamless Composite synthetic with a flexible fit that conforms to a variety of foot shapes, making hot spots and pressure points unlikely. It also allows for ample air transfer, helping to pull moisture from your feet and socks. The dual BOA IP1 dials give you extensive adjustability pre-ride or from the saddle, allowing you to achieve a secure fit that helps prevent numb feet in the middle of a trail.

  • A race-ready mountain bike or cyclocross shoe
  • Carbon composite sole efficiently transfers power
  • Lugged outsole provides grip and walkability
  • Seamless synthetic upper shapes to your foot
  • Dual BOA IP1 dials adjust the fit in 1mm increments
  • Adjustable 1:1 insole lets you further customize fit

Replaced my X Project 1.0's with Pros...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

...under warranty! The loops on each side of the shoe that hold the Boa laces started wearing out and eventually broke on my X-Project 1.0's after a few months of regular use. Presumably, the tightening/loosening action of the laces sawed through the loops over time. PI was nice enough to replace them with the Pro's under their lifetime warranty policy. Unfortunately, the new Pros seem use loops of the same material and design, so there's a chance they might wear out and break once again. At least PI assured me that they would be covered again under warranty.

On a side note, PI seems to have revised the sizing. Whereas the older 1.0 ran small, these seem to have similar sizing, at least relative to Shimano (who owns PI, but make/design shoes separately) shoes. I had to downsize by 0.5 when I went from the Pros to the 1.0.

downsize reads backwards: were the new PROs 1/2 size larger than the 1.0?
