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
New Clarino Microfiber & mesh upper
Side mounted Push/Pull BOA L6 lacing system with powerstrap
Pros: nice width, light weight, good quality built, easy to use and setup
Cons: since it’s new, need to frequently dial in the boa, as it goes thru stretching etc. Hope this will eventually settle.
I spent an agonizing long time and used 3 different methods to come up with what I assumed were accurate measurements for my foot. When I got my first pair of shoes, based on those measurements, they were hilariously small. I could not even get my foot into the shoe. So I made an interior measurement of the shoe and went up 2 sizes. The second set of shoes I received (2 sizes larger) fit very nicely. So, I would first have to say that the sizes run rather on the small side. As to the quality, the materials seem to be durable. Time will tell. These are my first set with the BOA enclosure and likewise, time will tell. One thing I would note is that the tongue could easily be another cm or two longer. I enjoyed my interaction with Lake, very professional and products were distributed in a timely fashion. I will be curious as to how they are when I complete my transcontinental this spring.
True to size. The wide is truly a wide shoe. Perfect.
Very comfortable and the white is very bright white.
Happy with purchase.
