Product Description

The MX145 is the answer to those Fall or Spring days that you thought were too wet to ride in.

Developed for mild, wet weather the MX145 is just the right shoe for those days when your race shoes are too cold or winter boots are too warm.

The upper features waxed canvas, water resistant leather and a waterproof membrane making this a highly water resistant cycling shoe great in various conditions. The waxed canvas provides a classic look that has not only great water resistance but is also has a breathable membrane. Dual BOA® closure gives a superior level of adjustability, security and comfort.

What really shines on the MX145 is the sole system. Not only does the MX145 feature Lake’s Legendary Glass Injected Nylon sole, but also one of the most technically advanced rubber soles courtesy of Hypergrip. The Hypergrip rubber sole features ICE LOCK tread inserts, which are vertically injected micro glass fibres that grip virtually all surfaces. This gives you a wet weather cycling shoe that is sure footed and stable in any condition. Fat bike, commuting, cyclocross, you name it, the MX145 is up for it.

Key Features:

  • Waxed canvas leather upper
  • Waterproof membrane for high water resistance
  • Hypergrip Enduro Sole with Ice Lock anti-slip lug inserts
  • Dual Side mounted IP1 BOA® Push/Pull lacing closure system with releasable guides

Swap the insole for a wider fit
by Rupert B on 14/12/2019

I have two pairs of Lake shoes already - the CX237 with road cleats and the MX161 with mtb cleats - both in EU Wide fit. Lake Wide fit shoes are wider than any others I've tried (inc. Giro, Mavic, Sidi & Bont wide fit models) and they sit like Cinderella's slippers. On first trying these on (also in EU45 Wide) I was dismayed that they felt much narrower. However, this is down to the aggressive arch support in the insole, not found in their other models. Swap them out for a flatter insole and they fit great. These won't keep your feet dry in a sustained downpour or if riding through a lot of standing water. I think there are too many seams for the water to get in. However, they are definitely water resistant, warm, rugged and have a great fit with the dual Boas.

Great shoes !
by Anthony P on 20/11/2019

Not as wide as the models with last competition but it is enough to take one size or two sizes above to be able to put on winter socks. The construction of the shoes is superb (leather and canvas) with the BOA system that fits perfectly to your foot. They're not as waterproof as I would have liked, but they're thin enough to put on overshoes. I went out for 2 hours with temperatures close to zero without feeling cold! I recommend. (For information: I own MX 237 wide in t46 and for MX145 wide the right size is 48!)

Mountain Bike Shoe Guide

 

Mountain Bike Shoe Guide

Mountain Bike Shoes

Mountain bike shoes are built tough to stand up to the rigours of off-road riding. Soles are stiff for efficient pedalling but tend to have more flexibility than road cycling shoes. This makes for easier walking. MTB shoes are made to keep your feet firmly on the pedals. There are two basic types: those that have holes in the bottom, for fitting the cleats that clip into clipless SPD pedals, and those made to work with flat pedals.


Do I need clipless or flat pedal shoes?

The type of shoes you will need depend on the pedals that you use. Most mountain bikers will have a preference for either ‘clips’ or ‘flats’. Each has their own advantages and disadvantages.

Flat pedal shoes

Designed to work with flat or platform pedals, flat pedal shoes are becoming more popular with mountain bikers. This is thanks to the extra grippy soles. Traditionally your shoes would slip off the pedals easily as soon as they got wet or muddy. This has all changed now. Modern flat pedal shoes have ‘sticky’ rubber compounds which help them grip the pedals in wet conditions. The first time you try these shoes you will be shocked at how well they stay put when covered in sloppy mud.

Legendary downhiller-turned enduro racer Sam Hill often prefers to ride flat pedals

The great advantage of flat pedals is that it is much easier to take your foot off the pedal and then put it back on again. This is especially useful when riding loose corners. A quick dab of the foot can keep you upright when the bike begins to slide. Riding with flat pedals also forces you to develop proper bike handling skills as you can’t pull up on the pedals to get the back wheel off the ground.

Flats are ideal for beginners and recreational riders as you don’t need to learn how to clip in and out. Flat are also popular with MTB enthusiasts, and you will even find some topflight gravity riders who race on flats.


Clipless SPD compatible shoes

The term clipless can be a bit confusing, so it’s worth a quick explanation. Traditionally, cyclists would use toe clips that wrapped around the shoe to hold their foot firmly on the pedals. Clipless SPD pedals do away with the toe clip and use cleats that attach to the pedals instead. Initially developed for road cycling SPD style pedals are now more popular with mountain bikers. This is because they are much easier to clip in and out of compared to modern road cycling pedals.

Mountain biker using SPD shoes

Clipless pedals have a major advantage over flats as they stop your foot bouncing off the pedals when riding over rough terrain. This means that you can still pedal efficiently over very rough ground. Without the need for sticky rubber soles, clipless pedals also transfer your pedalling power to the wheels more efficiently. It does take a bit of practice to get used to clipping in and out of clipless pedals, but most riders master this quickly.

Clipless pedals and shoes are best for racing but are also a good choice for recreational cycling. All Cross-country racers and most gravity racers use clipless pedals. It is more of a personal choice when riding for fun. Clipless pedals are best for climbing but many riders prefer descending on flats, the choice is up to you.


Soles

All mountain bike shoes have stiff soles designed for pedalling. If the soles are too stiff it can make it very difficult to walk, a real problem if you need to push the bike up a steep bit of trail. For this reason, clipless SPD compatible shoes will have extra tread or studs on the toe. This gives you some grip when walking up slippery inclines. As they are designed to work with a wide pedal platform, flat pedal shoes are more flexible. This makes them much easier to walk in, and the sticky rubber compound gives you grip on wet ground.

Soles of MTB shoes

Some SPD compatible pedals are also suitable for use with flats as they have a cover over the recessed area used to attach the cleat. These shoes don’t have sticky rubber soles though, so they won’t perform as well as dedicated flat pedal shoes in wet and muddy conditions.


Uppers

Shoes with ventilated uppers help your feet to breath and prevent overheating on hot days. When combined with waterproof socks you can use these shoes all-year-round. Dedicated winter MTB boots with waterproof lining help to keep your feet warm and dry when it is really cold and wet.

MTB shoe upper

Laces, straps, ratchets and BOAs

As with road cycling shoes there are number of different fastenings on mountain bike shoes. Because you don’t ‘pull up’ on the pedals, flat pedal shoes mostly use traditional laces. Sometimes these are combined with a Velcro strap for added security.

Clipless SPD compatible shoes benefit from a tighter fit. Velcro straps are a convenient way to get a nice snug fit and you will find these on many entry level MTB shoes. Ratchet buckle closures give you a more secure fit and are easy to adjust.

MTB shoe fastening

BOA is a lace up system without the laces. Instead they use steel laces with nylon guides and a dial for easy closure and adjustment. As well as offering a very snug fit, BOA systems equalize pressure across the whole foot which is a major advantage. The BOA system is micro adjustable, so you can fine tune the fit more closely than with a ratchet. Two-way BOA dials make it very easy to adjust the fit during a ride.
