The MX242 is a culmination of all of our experience, advanced materials, and shoe making techniques to make a shoe that offers the best fitting solution for hard to fit foot types. Made with a heat moldable heel counter and an uniquely designed upper that has enough adjustability to accommodate feet with any instep height or foot volume without sacrificing comfort.
MX Competition Last – Featuring a larger toe box & tighter heel than the Comfort last and with slightly more overall volume than the Sport last. Exceptionally secure for hard riding/racing with enough room in the toe box to prevent binding when running up inclines or negotiating a hike-a-bike section. Designed for performance riding & racing.
Lake Competition 100% Carbon Fiber Sole with Mountain Competition real rubber sole with extended protection and ground stability.
Helcor Abrasion resistant leather, Ecco Fullgrain leather and Nufoam lining with Carbon fiber support panels which help to maintain a secure fit while adding foot stability. The Helcor Abrasion resistant leather is specifically designed to be extremely durable against rubbing, scrapes and scuffing. 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.
BOA® Fit System Side mounted Li2 Push/Pull dial with releasable guides.

I just completed the Tour of Aotearoa, a 3,000 KM brevet the length of New Zealand wearing a brand new pair of these shoes (wide). I had done they same tour 2 years earlier and experienced a lot of foot issues, however these Lakes were amazing. No foot issues at all ! They were great for riding and hike a bike and the cross sectional design made them super adjustable and comfortable. Outstanding Shoes for this kind of activity.
