Lake did it's customers a disservice by giving two very different shoes the same model name. The lighter orange/black shoe is their 'cross-specific version with minimal tread, lighter weight, and a different fit from the other version that is more oriented toward mountain biking. I own both versions. The 'cross version is extremely stiff, comfortable and light, and so far excellent. The mountain version are a bit narrower, noticeably heavier, still stiff, and so far problem-free but not quite as sweet as the 'cross version.
