MXZ304 Mountain Bike Shoe

As a dedicated winter rider who pedals up frozen streams and across snowy singletrack, you know how important it is to have warm footwear that protects your feet from the elements. Lake was one of the first companies to make a dedicated winter cycling boot, and the new MXZ304 is their best one yet. A larger BOA dial is moved to the front of the tongue, making it easier to use with winter gloves and providing a more even tension across the top of your foot. Otherwise the construction remains similar the previous model, consisting of highly weather-resistant Pittards leather that molds to the shape of your foot for optimal comfort, and a heavy-duty Vibram outsole that provides maximum traction both on and off the bike. Plus, they're filled with lightweight Thinsulate insulation, keeping your toes warm when you're out in the snowy woods for hours at a time.

  • Warm cycling boot for fatbiking and winter mountain biking
  • Larger boa dial allows easier adjustment with winter gloves
  • Pittards uppers block the elements and mold to your feet for comfort
  • Durable Vibram outsole finds traction in icy conditions
  • Outlast liner regulates temperature and prevents clammy feet
  • Thinsulate insulation keeps your toes nice and toasty
  • Winter last is wider and taller to accommodate winter socks
  • Lake recommends sizing up 1 - 1.5 sizes if using with thick winter socks
  • Item #LKC002R

Worth the money

I've used it several times
True to size

I have been riding in the winter for a couple of years now. I have used shoe covers and/or toe covers for my road shoes. They are okay for me down to about 40 degrees. However, below that, it would get a little cold even with using electrical tape to cover cooling vents and chemical warmers. A friend told me an older model of these boots “transformed” his winter riding experience. I bought these new ones, and completely agree. I can use them even as warm as the 40s and be super comfortable. I bought a half size up and got the wide version for my wide feet (my other shoes are not available in wide). I am not a fan of the flap that covers the boa laces in terms of getting in and out of the boots, but it probably helps with keeping out the wind and snow. The boots look large, but are surprisingly light-weight. Feels like maybe 1.5 times the weight of my PEARL iZUMi X-Project P.R.O. shoes, which are very light mtb shoes. The minimal added weight is completely worth it unless maybe if you are in an actual race.

This is my first year cycling through the winter, and despite having a new pair of winter cycling shoes of a different brand, my toes were still cold! I tried a variety of different socks, even toe warmers, but ultimately those new shoes did not work for me (and the toe box area was too narrow so I was also getting numb toes!). I tried my husband's pair of these LAKE boots (the 303 model) and they were awesome! My toes stayed warm and plenty of room to move them around while still having a very good fit. I bought myself a pair of these and I am finally fully cozy and warm and enjoying my winter riding with no complaints! I'm normally a women's 9 (41), but moved up to a 42 for a more comfortable fit.
