Evolving from the CX237, Lake has improved upon performance and durability, with its high-cadence riding favorite, the Lake CX238 Road Shoe.
Shaped for a better, more comfortable fit, the Competition last increases toe pitch and heel lift, allowing the foot to expand under high pedaling pressure. Supporting the shoe is Lake's Race carbon fiber sole, offering impressive stiffness and power transfer while remaining low in weight. To protect the shoe from premature wear, the full-grain leather upper boasts a panel at the heel and a rubber bumper at the toe, plus mesh panels for proper ventilation.
Designed for high-pressure riding, the Lake CX238's wider forefoot provides the relief you need to focus on the road ahead.

BOA® Fit System
Lake's incredible fit comes from our Unique Pattern design, Shoe Lasts & Material choices. The BOA® Fit System provides a fine-tunable precision fit that evenly distributes pressure and eliminates hot spots. This system offers a similar level of fit and adjustability found in laces with the convenience of on the fly adjustment along with quick entry & exit. It is the first mechanical system to meet our exacting standards.
Made in the USA from carbon fiber, Carbitex OmniFlex has the highest tensile strength of any commercially available fiber, it doesn't stretch and is manufactured in an exceptionally flexible form - enabling carbon fiber performance in soft applications.
CX/TX Competition Last - With a profile specifically designed for very high-cadence riding & higher pressure, our Competition last features a more curved profile than the Sport last. The main differences include increased toe pitch & heel lift, a tighter heel & a slightly wider ball girth to allow the foot to expand under high pedaling pressures.
