If you're searching for a versatile mountain bike shoe that won't break the bank, look no further than the new X-Alp Mesa. This shoe is equally suited to rowdy backcountry rides and week-long bikepacking adventures. The Nylon composite sole balances pedaling efficiency with walkability, and the grippy rubber outsole provides confident traction when traversing rugged hike-a-bike terrain. A comfortable, secure fit is achieved through the combination of a BOA® dial and toe strap, while mesh panels and laser perforations increase airflow and help these shoes dry quickly after creek crossings. Mountain biking can be rough work, so we reinforced the toe box to shrug off rock strikes.
