Pearl Izumi X-ALP Launch Mid WRX

$175.00
X-Alp Launch Mid WRX
In stock

If you find yourself digging dirt jumps or railing loose and loamy trails, a bit of extra ankle protection can be a great thing. That’s why we made the Launch Mid WRX. This mid-top flat pedal shoe is constructed on the same platform as the Launch Flat, with added ankle and heel protection and a gusseted tongue to keep out dirt and debris. Because trail conditions can be highly variable, the Launch Mid WRX uses a water-repellent membrane to keep the elements at bay. Laces can be a hassle when covered in mud and grime so the Launch Mid WRX relies on a BOA® Fit System to make fit adjustments a breeze. The rubber experts at Goodyear® developed a compound that is sticky and long-wearing, which we mold into our chevron-shaped PinLoc Outsole® tread to keep your feet planted and in control even in slippery conditions.

CARE

SHOE CARE AND MAINTENANCE: Clean mud off with a damp sponge and then stuff the inside of the shoes with paper to help absorb moisture and maintain shape. Never clean shoes in a washing machine. Keep the outsole clean by scrubbing with a soft brush when needed. Air dry at room temperature. Do not dry the shoes by a fire, radiator or other heat source. Do not leave them in your car on a hot day. Extreme, direct heat can cause the materials to dry out or crack. This will damage your shoes and void your warranty.
