Sometimes the sweetest sections of single-track aren't laid out on a silver platter. They are hidden gems -- protected by a vertical slope of scree, above an un-rideable boulder garden, or on the other side of gorge overgrown with thick cover. For serious mountain bike junkies, cyclocross addicts and anyone who pushes the limits, the question isn't whether you're going to get off the bike and hoof it, the question is when.

For all obstacles that can't be ridden around, through or over, Pearl Izumi has the answer: X PROJECT designed with four-time world mountain bike champ Brian Lopes and all-mountain and BMX champ Ross Schnell. X PROJECT is not just a new high performance mountain bike shoe. It's a whole new category of mountain bike shoe...that hikes or runs a bike as well as it pedals one.

Making a high performance shoe with maximum pedaling efficiency, that has the added benefit of superior off-the-bike performance, is a new concept. The key was finding the flex in the right place so the shoe bends naturally as you hike but remains stiff while you pedal.
