Lake CX402 Speedplay Road Shoes
Kangaroo leather has long been recognised as an ideal material for cycling shoes as it offers an exceptional level of fit, breathability and comfort whilst also being incredibly lightweight. The CX402's upper is constructed from Klite Kangaroo leather to give you the pinnacle in shoe performance across the board.
A custom fit carbon fibre sole enhances that all-important power transfer, ensuring that no power is dissipated in the flex of the shoe, while also maintaining the most favourable foot position in the pedal stroke.
The CX402 Shoes are equipped with the four-hole cleat pattern specifically designed to fit the Speedplay cleat. A replaceable heel strike pad means that you can walk around in these shoes safe in the knowledge that you are not going to wear through the heel.
For the lining, Lake decided to not skimp in any way and so used a high-performance perforated kangaroo leather that allows for a superb level of breathability and foot support.
With elite road cycling shoes such as these, the closure system is of the utmost importance in terms of comfort and performance. A poorly closing shoe means that your foot is not secured and therefore you are not going to be able to maximise your power output and chafing and discomfort are certainly going to become a problem. Lake utilises the dual side mounted push/pull Boa lacing system with releasable lace guides to give you the highest level of customisation in terms of fit and the easiest means of taking the shoe on and off with the quick release functionality. This makes the closure easily adjustable, even while riding.
Where the Lake CX402 really separates itself from the competition is in its CFC Race Last inner. The Race Last is specifically shaped to optimise your power transfer to the pedals, making sure no energy is lost in the pedal stroke by putting your foot in a position that allows energy to be focused exclusively on the pedal.
