To cycle up a mountain and then go climbing you dont need two pairs of shoes - just put on the X-Alp Seek VII cycling shoes by Pearl Izumi. They have a comfortable EVA midsole, which ensures optimal cushioning while walking, while the carbon rubber outsole provides good traction. A polyamide layer with composite reinforcements is also integrated for efficient power transfer when cycling. The upper has a breathable mesh material, which is reinforced with synthetic fibers. Thank to the classic lacing, these shoes can be fitted quickly and easily. The SPD cleat mounts make the X-Alp Seek VII cycling shoes compatible with conventional MTB pedals and are a definite must-have for tour riders who also want to do some sections on foot. ;"
