Fantastic quality and brilliant fit - even better when heat moulded to your feet! Online Bont sizing app is very useful but you may need a half size larger than it suggests. Shoes that actually fit your feet rather than typical skinny cycling shoes... like cycling in carbon soled slippers!!!
Not the easiest to fit Speedplay cleats to given the shape of the sole but got a secure and comfortable position using one of the shims from the speed play kit. Not the cheapest shoes in the world - but then you get what you pay for!

Durolite Outer Skin : Strength to weight ratio's have always played an important part in Bont cycling shoe design as all materials considered and developed for products within the Bont range must comply to strict standards. Durolite has been developed and chosen for the Vaypor+ upper and liner for its extremely durable nature and light weight. Initially stock colours will be matt white and matt black with additional colours available in our semi custom range. Unidirectional Carbon : The Vaypor+ has been upgraded to a matt carbon unidirectional finish to improve the aesthetics of the sole and further reduce the weight of the shoe. Retention System : Dual Dial retention system has been introduced into the Vaypor+ design with dual directional bottom dial and quick release top dial for easy entry and exit. The nylon coated Kevlar wiring has been positioned to maximise the dispersion of retention load across the top of the foot. Ventilation : Ventilation of the Vaypor+ is maximized by including ventilation holes across the tongue, top of the forefoot, through the front bumper and arch area of the shoe. The ventilation system of the Vaypor+ has been designed to create an even airflow around the foot for cooling. Anti Stretch : Between the outer skin and the liner we add a material that is proprietary to Bont 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 pedalling efficiency by maintaining a supportive structure over the top of the foot in the upward part of the pedal stroke. Carbon Fibre : Bont carbon fibre is sourced exclusively from the world's #1 carbon manufacturer, Toray of Japan. The base of the Vaypor+ is made by hand utilizing uni-directional carbon fibre which is embedded with epoxy thermo setting resin. The fibres are hand laid in the matrix according to the strain they will have to bear. The Vaypor+ utilizes unidirectional carbon fibre allowing Bont to create a performance cycling shoe with very specific strength characteristics based on stress points in cycling. As unidirectional carbon absorbs less resin then cross weave fibres, it also assists in the weight reduction of the cycling shoes. Last Design : 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. At Bont, we have been perfecting our performance footwear lasts since 1975 and the process is ongoing. We believe we place more importance and thus place more effort into our last than any other cycling shoe brand and it is the reason that Bont cycling shoes continue to be a leader in giving the most functional and correct anatomical support to cyclists than any other brand on the market. Our motto in terms of cycling shoe fit is simple, "We make shoes for cycling, not walking."
