CX 241 Cycling Shoe - Ultimate Comfort

The Lake CX 241 Road Cycling shoe is a culmination of years of experience, research with athletes, advanced materials, and shoemaking techniques to make a shoe that offers the best fitting solution for any foot type. Whatever the shape of your feet, or whether or not you’ve got a specific foot condition such as bunions, or you’re healing up after treatment, this unique design of this cycling shoe will very likely be a great fit for your troublesome feet, with its articulated upper and dual BOA fastening.   

The average design for a cycling shoe upper is a single piece of leather or fabric. It provides lateral support, but doesn’t wrap well around a foot with unusual shape or structural issues. The articulated upper of our CX 241 does just that – wrapping you in foot love and comfort.

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.
