It’s Time to Get Cross - Cyclocross Season Begins

Having the right footwear for cyclocross is critical, to ensure that the mud and course debris falls away from the footbed, and that the foot and shoe remains stable and at times, on your foot, as the mud works against you and your efforts to propel the bike forward. Cyclocross is certainly a messy sport, with riders often ending up unrecognisable, and their bikes looking unusable!  

Here at Lake, we were the first cycling shoe brand to design a Cyclocross specific shoe. Our latest design, the MX 238 off-road Cycling Shoe is the perfect cycling shoe for both Cyclocross and for Mountain Biking XC, with the Lake Competition 100% Carbon Fiber Sole, and its Mountain Race X real rubber sole. It sheds the soil well and gives you the grip that you need.

Thankfully, we have Hutch, our chief designer and a guy who’s been at Lake, designing Cycling shoes for rider's feet all over the world, for over 24 years now.
