Pearl Izumi's premium gravel shoe blends the lightweight and stiffness of a road shoe with the durability of a mountain bike shoe.
The Gravel X™ is ready for your fast gravel adventures with a full carbon sole to maximize power transfer.

Not quite what I'd hoped for. A pricey gamble.
Coming from a great pair of fizik gravel shoes, I wanted a knit shoe as I have a hammer toe which rubs raw on longer rides. Was hoping the combo of a stiff sole and knit upper would do the trick. These shoes are STIFF as one might imagine having carbon soles, but I've had them for a few months and ridden probably about 4-500 miles in them and Iï¿½m really struggling to get them where I want them. Still having my feet fall asleep and the knit is not nearly as pliant as Iï¿½d hoped it to be. They are solid, and will probably end up as my MTB shoes. I have been packing them with newspaper to try and pack them out a bit in the front of the shoe. The foot bed seems shaped in a way that my feet (ball) hurt after a ride with my fancy orthotic inserts I use for riding. Seems like there is some type of ergonomic shaping that doesn't fit my foot well. For short rides they've been great. Stiff, solid and great power transfer. For longer rides Iï¿½m still not sure about them. Might also have been nice to have two separate adjustments (front of foot and one higher on top to allow for wider feet), especially at this price, but they are what they are.
