I spent last summer trying to keep these laces tight. They would always seem to come loose half way through a set. Nothing like elbow hanging and lace pulling at 20mph.
Has anyone replaced the laces and / or lace locks? If so how did it work out?
Link? brand?.
Ideas?
Thanks.

I threw some thicker - athletic type laces on my Zeus' and it worked like a charm. Just be sure to jam the tightner down before you jump in, should be fine. Changing them out doesn't take long, did mine on the way across KC to the cable park, 20 minutes tops - without the right tools, in a car. No biggie

Yup, it sucks, but the round laces don't seem to hold up. I've changed over to standard laces, too, and it works great. Never a bad idea to carry around a couple extra sets of long laces (hiking boot laces work great or high top basketball shoes) just in case. Nothing ruins a wake weekend quicker than a broken lace.

I'm with Evan on this one ! I also just run 1 long lace and tie it like a tennis shoe would. And I carry an extra pair of laces in the glove box....

My laces on my answers broke and i just replaced each lace (4 total-two on each foot) with skate shoe laces and it completely eliminated the problem of them loosening up while riding. I had that same problem and i like my bindings tight so it really frustrated me every little bit the laces loosened. So like your doing, i would throw my arm through the handle and try to reach down and tighten them...very tough at 24 mph lol. Regular skate laces worked AWESOME without any wear and tear. I suggest switching them over. It may seem like regular laces dont fit through the fastener but they do, just gotta get some plyers or somethin.

OK,. regular laces. Are you tying them in a bow? or did you say you can stuff them through the lace locks?
