MX241 Endurance Cycling Shoe

So you've discovered that your taste in off-road riding borders on all-day epics over rugged terrain. Good news, the Men's MX241 Endurance Cycling Shoe from Lake is specifically designed to give you comfort and efficiency in the backcountry with impressively durable elements that can handle the abuse with aplomb. Lake wanted to meet the needs of cross-country riders competing in endurance events, that value an efficient comfortable shoe and cannot afford to have issues with their footwear during an event and demand long life from their footwear.

The MX241 Endurance Cycling Shoe is built on Lake's MX Competition last, which has an impressive hold on the heel to prevent any slippage while trying to keep a smooth pedal stroke when negotiating steep, ledgy climbs. A wider toe box gives your feet some much-needed real estate as they will inevitably swell after many hours in hot and humid trail conditions. Anyone who has experienced hotspots and generally uncomfortable feet by subjecting them to carbon planks with off-road lugs, and yearns for a more comfortable shoe with virtually the same efficiency should check these out.

The other features are what you would come to expect from a quality off-road shoe. A full grain leather upper wraps your feet with a supple feel and the reinforced anti-abrasion panels help out in areas where you're most likely to scuff the shoes. This supple leather upper is cinched down with dual Boa IP1 dials allowing for a micro-adjustable fit while tightening and loosening. The full carbon sole provides efficient power transfer through the pedals and the grippy rubber lugs dig in for traction as your calves burn while the eyes look for the end point of the hike-a-bike.

Wide but sloppy

I've used it several times

I developed morton's neuromas in both my feet that have been frustrating me for a year. One of the doctor's suggestions is to only wear wide shoes to allow room for the toes to spread out. These do have plenty of room in the toe box, but I'm having a really hard time dialing in a fit otherwise. They're very loose in some areas, like the heel and lower instep, but at the same time are painfully tight on the top of my instep. No matter how I tighten the boas I feel like they've very sloppy on the upstroke. I tried 3 different sizes, but they all felt sloppy to me, even the smallest ones which felt really tight around my toes.

Awesome stiff sole, super comfy if....

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:
5' 6"

...you don't have ANY bunion or protrusion on EITHER side of your foot. Lakes designed the ventilation ports exactly on the sides of the human foot where there is a joint (1st and 5th MTPs)...dumb...they need to have a women check out their ideas before final stage of design. I felt the edge of the leather of these large vents. As a female with a lower volume foot and heel, I also got some heel slip. Had I kept them, I would have tried to custom form the heel after heating as one can apparently do with this shoe. Also, the upper is lined with foam covered with mesh. Why have a stiff sole when the upstroke feels a bit squishy (as if you have a really thick sock on)? I like something firmer against my upstroke as well as the stiff sole. Would be a good cool weather shoe though, especially with toe covers. I so wanted to love these because the BOA IP1s are SO easy to use...even with long-fingered gloves! Oh...and Lake's sizing chart is funky: I measure almost 26 mm in length and the 40 is a perfect fit (I don't like a lot of extra room in the toe length).

Like a Foot Glove

I've used it several times

These are the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. The individual upper panels wrap your foot like a glove. The toe box is nice and wide with no hot spots. I had them a bit too snug initially they were just so comfortable. Soles are super stiff and will make you feel like you're so much more efficient. I ride single-speed most of the time and the added efficiency is simply amazing. I'm closing in on times I haven't seen since 2013, I'm really happy.
