Bont Riot+ , the worlds first carbon composite heat moldable entry level cycling shoe now available with BOA retention system.
The Riot+ combines Bont's pro series technical features, our power transfer platform, anatomical shaping with competition grade materials and BOA retention system to create the most technically advanced entry level road cycling shoe.
Microfiber Upper Is Utilized
Microfiber upper is used to provide the Bont Riot+ with a strong outer layer to withstand the rigours of everyday cycling whilst extensive perforations across the upper ensure excellent ventilation of the cycling shoes.
Carbon Composite Construction
The carbon composite construction of the Riot+ has been specifically designed to ensure maximum performance at low weight. The composite tub style construction of the chassis has been strengthened with the inclusion of carbon across high stress areas. The carbon has been sandwiched between layers of fibreglass to maximise strength.
Z form velcro and micro adjustable BOA retention system are utilized in conjunction with Bont's anatomical design to ensure a secure fit.
The Bont Riot+ is highly ventilated via extensive perforations of the top panel.
Between the outer leather 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 leather and bonded to the liner so it can never move or be removed, it becomes part of the cycling shoes structure. This layer assits in pedalling efficiency by maintaining a supportive structure over the top of the foot in the upward part of the pedal stroke.
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 providing 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."
Medial Longitudinal Arch Support
Structural medial longitudinal arch support is provided in all models to stop over pronation of feet.
Over pronation is one of the main contributors to incorrect tracking of knees during a cyclists pedaling phase due to internal rotation of tibia and femur. This can result in knee injuries.
In addition, the rotation of tibia/femur can cause the pelvis to tilt resulting in lower back strain.
Anatomical Forefoot Shape
Conventional cycling shoes offer a “dress shoe” type shaping. Although highly aesthetic this will cause the toes along with the metatarsals to be overly constricted, compressing the nerves between the metatarsals which often results in the common "hot foot" sensation.
Bont cycling shoes anatomical shaping allows the foot to function in its most efficient and anatomically correct position. The foot is supported in its endeavour to relax through the metatarsal joints allowing the pedalling force to be spread across the greatest possible surface area.
Anatomical Heel Cup
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.
Lateral Forefoot Support
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.

The thermoforming process is kinda a pain, and the initial moulding took me about 6 hours, ending when I realized the part of the carbon bathtub that was jabbing my arch when standing in them was just not going to form properly. I left it, intending to get a shoe stretcher to help form it further. I'll note that when riding, my arch wasn't being jabbed. But, since then I've done a few rides with them, and oddly, it seems to have gotten better without further heat forming - I'm not sure how, but it has. I wouldn't say these are the most comfortable cycling shoes I've used, but they certainly aren't uncomfortable in normal use (when riding). Maybe that will change after a few more rounds of heat forming. I'm using these with Crankbros Candy pedals and have purchased the "optional" shoe protectors. If you use the shoe shields and this pedal/shoe combination, the tread is just the right height that it contacts the pedal body without interfering with the cleat engagement. Overall, i'm pretty happy with them.
