Lake Cycling has introduced the Lake CX331 road shoe, which features Outlast's heat- and moisture-management materials in the tongue and heel. The Outlast technology in the shoe will proactively respond to changes in foot temperature to help mitigate moisture—before it begins—for increased breathability and sweat reduction.
"A closed environment coupled with high levels of activity generates extra heat, resulting in perspiration that can lead to blisters," said Heather Manuel, Outlast North America sales and marketing director. "Products with Outlast technology are proven to reduce perspiration to help feet stay drier. In fact, tests show reduction in perspiration by as much as 44 percent."
Features of the Lake CX331 include:
• Outlast heat-management heel and tongue liner.
• Internal carbon fiber Thermaform heel counters that mold the shoe to the foot after heating it.
• Side mounted Push/Pull BOA Closure System in the forefoot.
• Kangaroo leather/mesh upper
• Carbon-fiber sole available in a three-hole cleat pattern or Speedplay-specific styles.
"We ultimately have one goal in mind when it comes to product development, which is to let riders focus on their ride," said Patrick van der Heijden, brand manager, Lake Cycling. "We've continued to partner with Outlast because we know their technology is an effective moisture management solution and want to offer our customers the benefits that come from utilizing Outlast materials."
How Outlast Technology Works:
Products with Outlast technology interact with the microclimate next to your body and the external environment to buffer changes in temperature and humidity. Outlast products absorb excess heat (and also sweat) when there is too much, and release it as needed to maintain a more constant microclimate temperature.
The Lake CX331 is available for both men and women (CX331W) in white/silver or white/red and retails for $350. For additional information and details on where to purchase the Lake CX331, visit www.lakecycling.com.
