Last: A last is a replica of a foot that the cycling shoe is built around. Last makers do not make cycling shoe lasts, they only make shoe lasts so perfecting a cycling shoe last requires a great deal of expertise in functional biomechanics and ongoing research. Bont has been perfecting performance footwear lasts since 1975. Conventional cycling shoes offer a “dress shoe” type shaping. this can cause the toes to be constricted, compressing the nerves between the metatarsals resulting in the common "hot foot" sensation. Bont's Anatomical Forefoot Shape allows the foot to function in its most efficient and anatomically correct position. The foot is supported in its endeavor to relax through the metatarsal joints allowing the pedaling force to be spread across the greatest possible surface area.
Upper: Microfiber Upper over a Carbon Composite chassis. Between the outer skin and the liner Bont adds a proprietary material that is designed to stop the cycling shoe from stretching over time. This material has similar strength characteristics to Kevlar. The material is stitched to the outer skin and bonded to the liner so it can never move or be removed, it becomes part of the cycling shoes structure. This layer assists in pedaling efficiency by maintaining a supportive structure over the top of the foot in the upward part of the pedal stroke. Vaypor XC is fitted with high density memory foam with dry cell technology to ensure minimum water retention in wet conditions. TPU toe protector not only protects the front area of the shoe from wheel rub and impact, but also houses ventilation holes for improving airflow through the shoe. Replaceable Bumpers are fitted in key area to protect foot. Medial Longitudinal Arch Support is designed to prevent pronation of feet; a main contributor to incorrect tracking of knees during a cyclists pedaling phase due to internal rotation of tibia and femur which can result in knee injuries. In addition, Medial Longitudinal Arch Support prevents the rotation of tibia/femur preventing pelvis tilt which can result in lower back strain. Bont’s lateral forefoot support ensures neutral positioning of the forefoot and alleviates common issues associated with over pronation and supination. These issues often result in incorrect tracking of knees causing injuries along with hip and lower back pain.
Heel: The anatomical heel cup shaping of Bont cycling shoes provides increased stability during the pull through stage of pedaling stroke and up stroke. This stabilization is achieved without any mechanical operation or over tightening of straps/laces allowing for increased comfort and blood circulation.
