Combining the comfort of sneakers with the pedaling efficiency of cycling shoes, Pearl Izumi's versatile X-Alp Drift II shoes are ready for every adventure. Their quick-drying, highly breathable mesh uppers provide excellent ventilation to keep your feet dry and comfy on hot summer rides. Grippy outsoles with a flexible forefoot and stiff pedaling plate give you the ultimate combination of off-the-bike traction, walkability, and on-the-bike power transfer. Plus, the Drift IIs boast a quick-lacing system for a secure fit and easy on/off, as well as rubber toe caps for extra protection.
In order to mount your pedal cleats to your shoes (cleats are included with new pedals and sold separately), the cleats and shoes must have matching bolt patterns.
There are four cleat configurations found on cycling shoes (diagram): SPD-R, Look/SPD-SL, SPD and Speedplay. Road shoes feature one, two or even three of these. Off-road shoes usually use the SPD pattern. If you're unsure which cleats your shoes require, please ask us. We're here to help!
