Designed with 4x world mountain champion, Brian Lopes, the Pearl Izumi X-PROJECT 1.0 gives serious mountain bikers and cyclocross riders their first high-performance MTB shoe that hikes and runs a bike, as well as it pedals one. It's been updated for 2015 with the Bi-directional Closure for even pressure distribution across the foot and the micro-adjustable BOA reel for a precision fit. Full-length, tapered carbon plate integrates stiffness with flexibility, so it feels like an extremely lightweight, fully efficient race shoe on the bike, and an all-day comfort shoe off the bike. Rubber is bonded to the lugs in the super-light TPU sole and provides better traction than hard plastic lugs found on other shoes. New seamless upper is extremely thin and gives a second skin fit for superior comfort, breathability and aerodynamics. EVA foam heel soaks up the rough stuff when hiking, running or rolling over uneven terrain.
