Lake builds its CX218 Cycling Shoe for high-cadence pedaling and fast riding. It uses high-quality materials throughout for race-level performance in a shoe that cost a lot less then you might imagine. This updated version changes from the Action Leather upper of the previous model and exchanges it for lighter, softer, and longer wearing Clarino Microfiber while its strategically placed mesh inserts and perforations throughout keeps air flowing through to keep your feet cooler. Anchoring them to your feet is a single side mounted BOA L6 lacing system and a hook-and-loop strap that customizes your fit and eliminates the potential of pressure points and hot spots for comfort on those all day rides. The CX/TT Competition Last increases toe pitch and heel lift to allow your foot to expand under high pedaling pressures, while the 100% carbon fiber Lake Race outsole keeps weight low and stiffness and strength high.
