100% Carbon Chassis The 100% 3K carbon construction of the shoe chassis has been specifically designed to ensure maximum performance at an incredible low weight. Despite the low weight the chassis provides incredible stiffness for the very best power transfer. Custom Heat Moulding Bont Cycling's proprietary thermo-mouldable resin ensures the fit customization of the Blitz can be made using a standard home oven. Click on the video tab for full instructions. A Bont cycling shoe is the most heat mouldable shoe available. Bont's proprietary resin has been developed and perfected over 36 years to be an extremely stiff resin that becomes pliable at relatively low temperatures. Unlike other shoes which are mouldable only in select locations, all Bont cycling shoes are able to be moulded over the entire chassis providing you with not only the most anatomically designed cycling shoe on the market today, but also with the ability to fine tune the fit of the entire shoe to give a true customised fit. Secure and adjustable Retention System The BOA dial and a forefoot strap ensures micro adjustability of the fit both when on and off the bike ensuring you can obtain the best feel and performance at all times. Great Ventilation The Bont Blitz is highly ventilated via integrated top mesh panels and ventilation holes throughout the side microfiber panels. This allows cool fresh air to enter and moist warm air to escape regulating the temperature for more comfort. Durable Microfiber upper The upper is constructed using a high grade gloss Microfiber to provide the Bont Blitz with a strong outer layer able to withstand the rigours of everyday cycling whilst mesh inserts assist with breathability in hot weather. Cycling Specific 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, they have been perfecting their performance footwear lasts since 1975 and the process is ongoing. They firmly believe that they place more importance and thus place more effort into their lasts 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. This is summed up in their motto "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 pedalling 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 your 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 the pedalling stroke and into the up stroke. This stabilisation 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.
Founded in 1975, Bont began when Inze Bont, a recreational skater decided to fiberglass the back of his leather skates to gain extra support. A simple, yet innovative approach which started a company now in its 35th year, with product ranges across two highly competitive sports and sales across 56 countries.
Inze's innovation saw Bont as the first footwear manufacturer to commercially use materials such as fiberglass in 1975, Kevlar in 1986 and Carbon in 1989. The companies philosophy in continually driving development, along with its reputation for producing the highest quality products rapidly made it the largest producer of hand made speed skates in the world, a position it has continually held and one that is backed up by not only our volume of products sold, but by countless world championship medals.
In 2007, after continual requests the decision was made to expand the companies product line into the cycling market. Working together with world class athletes, Bont launched its initial offering of cycling shoes and in its inaugural year at the 2008 Beijing Olympics finished with 8 Gold medals.
Since 2008, Bont Cycling has rapidly grown it's product line to over 12 models in stock sizing and now caters extensively to all disciplines of cycling. Our range of cycling shoes cater not only to high performance athletes, but also to enthusiasts and beginners alike.
Bont as a company continues to grow with the help of a dedicated team of individuals. Our team, including our factory which is dedicated to Bont products only, strives to continually improve our products in all aspects. We work with total respect for all within the Bont family and value all input from within our team and from the countless individuals who use our products.
Bont will continue to grow through maintaining our constant drive in product innovation, continually improving on product quality and through providing exceptional support and service.

Bont Size Chart To find your size, place a tape measure on a flat surface up against a wall. Stand on the tape measure with your heel against the wall. Look down and take the measurement from your longest toe. Then use the MM scale on the size chart to find your size. The 'Standard Fit' column gives an idea of the width of the shoe (at the widest part of your foot).
The mm sizes on the size chart are the exact length of the last that we use to build the shoes. If you find that your mm size is exactly the same as a value on the size chart, you may want to select one size bigger to give your toes some room. Eg. You measure your foot and it is 268mm is size which is a size 42.5. Unless you like your shoes very tight, you may wish to wear a size 43.
RETURNS INFORMATION: Please note that once the shoes have been heat moulded, we cannot accept them back as a return under any circumstance.
