CX/TX Competition Last – With a profile specifically designed for very high-cadence riding & higher pressure, our Competition last features a more curved profile than the Sport last. The main differences include increased toe pitch & heel lift, a tighter heel & a slightly wider ball girth to allow the foot to expand under high pedaling pressures.
Lake Competition 100% Carbon Fiber Sole. Available in 3 hole cleat pattern. A 100% carbon fiber sole that creates a comfortable, lightweight and classy package.
Fullgrain leather (White/Black and Black/Silver) or Clarino Microfiber (Matte Grey/Black and Reflective Silver/Grey) and NuFoam lining with Carbon fiber support panels, which help to maintain a secure fit while adding foot stability. The upper is segmented into 6 independent zones for the most flexible fit to accommodate narrow or wide feet as well as high instep and low instep feet. The moldable heel counter doubles the heel hold for a secure fit. Carbitex support panels offer additional support to enhance the closure.
BOA® Fit System Li2 dials. The Li2 dial is the most advanced platform in cycling, offering a precise, micro-adjustable fit in both directions and designed to resist abrasion.
I have a pair of the cx 403's and those were great. So I figure let's try something a little different from Lake and wow these 242's fit me right out of the box. Nice, cushy, and soft across the top of the foot. I was not expecting the mesh top so I hope these will keep my feet nice and cool during summer rides. There was a lot more room from the head of the 5th metatarsal without any sort of molding. Just a very nice product all around.
Why black stripe in the white shoe? Pls bring back cx 241 white design
These are the most comfortable shoes ive ever put in my feet .
Bought my first road bike around 2008 with a pair (different brand) of returned shoes - it’s what I could afford. Pushing past 30-60 minutes was always uncomfortable; and would push it thru Ironman 70.3 56 mile rides. Enough was enough bought a similar pair in January, still a different brand, but felt the same after a month…. I spoke with another bike store in the next town and they carried Lake shoes - I tried a couple of options and immediately loved the feel of the CX241. It was a size small so they ordered up the new ones and they are a perfect fit. Well, almost - I got up like a kid at Christmas the next morning and set the oven to 200. One at a time, I heated them up and tightened the heal up around my heal. Warm shoes felt so nice in the feet. After they weee sufficiently cool, I got on the turbo trainer for an hour and a half. One stop for a minor clear adjustment… the boa dials made tweaking during the ride easy. The shoe lets my foot be the shape my foot needs to be. Comfort is what I need to be faster this summer! I got the white shoe and the carbon fiber showing through looks very sharp. I look forward to more rides and wish I would have found these sooner!
This is what a road shoe is supposed to feel like. I own a pair of Lake MXZ303 winter boots for commuting in Montana winters so I thought I would give the road show a try. They did not disappoint. I ordered the CX242 wide. They are easily adjusted for wide feet. It's heat moldable but I didn't need to. It fit right the first time. No hot spots, no pressure points, no slipping and no pinch spots. The shoe leather is pliable and conforms easily to my feet. Even walking in them is easier than any shoe I've worn. The craftsmanship is second to none for any shoe I've worn or owned. The Boa dials make it easy to adjust how my feet feel today. Xpedo clips installed easy and were adjustable to the best fit I've ever had with a shoe. I was so impressed, I just ordered a second pair. I won't say who made my other shoes but both companies went in the trash and I'll run all lakes.
