    pearl izumi x-alp launch - all that?

    I love my x-alps for hike a bike. Soooo comfortable. However, that comfy soft sole makes my feet hurt pretty good after 6 hours of riding.

    The new x-alp Launch seems to address this. Anyone tried them? Yeah they are priced like Specialized Rime, but if they are as comfy as regular xalps, I'd go with the PIs.

    Sounds like the sole is more flexiable accoridng to this review on BIKEMAG. I have the regular X-alp's for my normal everyday riding. When I used to do longer rides, I would put on my trusty Sidi's with a stiffer sole to keep the foot cramping down.
