The Lake CX241-X Wide Road Shoe is a culmination of years of experience, advanced materials, and shoemaking techniques to make a shoe that offers the best fitting solution for any foot type. With a heat-moldable heel counter and a uniquely designer upper that has enough adjustability to accommodate feet with any instep height or foot volume without sacrificing comfort.
The CX241 was designed for those riders with foot issues such as bunions, deformation, or wide feet who need a shoe that will not beat their feet up, giving the rider the endurance, they need to stay on the bike. The upper has separated panels that allow for fine tuning the pressure and fit which also allows the upper to conform around sensitive and painful spots on the foot without the same level of constraint that is felt in traditional shoe uppers.
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
Helcor Abrasion resistant leather, full grain leather and Nufoam lining. Heat moldable carbon heel counter.
Dual Side mounted Push/Pull IP1 BOA lacing system with releasable lace guides
I don't have wide feet except a bunion on each foot and these shoes are a perfect way to accommodate bunions and have snug fit everywhere else. These shoes are very well made, soft leather, stiff sole, not super light but I want comfort over weight. And I can tart up the looks with different colored boa knobs if so desired!
I measured my feet three times, averaged the numbers and the size was spot on. Incidentally, the size did match up with my Sidi's, but not Bont, Fizik, etc.. Speedplay cleats no problem. I haven't molded the heel but may after I've decided on my insole. I'm very impressed and look forward to some long slogs to see how they feel then.
The CX-241 Are the most comfortable, most logically designed cycling shoes ever! I don't have any particular foot issues,just wide feet. I 'experimented' w/sz. 38 . These turned out to be slightly larger than I prefer. These were close-outs,so no returns. It turns out I can make them 'fit' by really cranking the boa's down. I've got tons of room in the toe area. I use these for training & commuting to work. I have now made my 'investment' , recently purchasing another CX-241 sz. 37 this time. The smaller size & provides a perfect , tighter fit. I plan to use these for 2023 ALC SF-LA. Thank you so much for my happy, cycling feet. Brandy
Ho scelto questo prodotto per via della conformazione dei miei piedi, pianta larga e dell'alluce valgo pronunciato in particolare sul piede SX, le scarpe sono ottime in quanto oltre ad essere molto morbide si adattano alla perfezione alla forma dei piedi grazie ai pannelli di morbida pelle sulla tomaia che sono fatti in sezioni indipendenti e che consentono una vestibilità e aderenza molto migliore rispetto a una solida scarpa laterale. Anche il sistema BOA IP1 influisce sulla vestibilità in quanto permette di regolare al millimetro, e soprattutto durante la pedalata, l'aderenza della scarpa al piede. Personalmente non le trovo bellissime esteticamente ma è un giudizio strettamente personale, secondo me l'unico difetto è la punta della scarpa che rimane un po rigida e la traspirabilità che poteva essere superiore, per questa ultima caratteristica a mio parere, ma soprattutto dopo averle provate, ad alte temperature scaldano il piede e si avverte la classica sensazione di formicolio e dolore, in particolare sulla punta del piede. Chiaramente nel complesso il prodotto è ottimo e superiore a tutti quelli già provati (anche marchi famosi e top di di gamma).
Absolutely the best fit for my wide, high arch, short feet. I've used many other brands in the past and the previous best that I've used for the past 10 years were Sidi Mega's. They are nice but not even close to the ability of the Lake shoe to form to my feet as I click down on the BOA's. I also love the ease of adjustability as I'm on a long ride, just reach down and find the perfect feel for the moment in time. And don't be fooled, these are extremely high performance shoes. You are not settling for a lesser product just to get a good fit. My only wish would be more color options to keep these high performance shoes "in step" with the 332's and 403's.
I put them on, I knew right away, these shoes were going to save my toes. They tighten up and fit like a glove. And they look great too. I could not be more happy.
