The combination of heat-mould technology, boa dial and unique cycling-specific ergonomics all combine to make the Bont Riot Road+ Cycling Shoes the ultimate choice when it comes to cycling comfort and pure performance.
|Cycle Shoe Type:||Three Bolt|
|Cycle Shoe Closing:||Dial|
The popular Bont Riot Road + features a Boa closure as well as a hook-and-loop strap on the forefoot so that you can ensure a comfortable fit and make minor adjustments on the go. The closures have been configured to distribute pressure evenly across the foot, minimising 'hot spots.' Instead of the traditional nylon composite, Bont Riots feature carbon fibreglass composite sole which offers more stiffness so you can be confident that you won't be wasting power.
If you are a road cyclist looking to upgrade to a high-performance road shoe, the Bont Riot is a great choice. Like all Bont shoes, it's heat-mouldable for a fit that's individual to you and has been designed for that perfect balance of comfort and performance.
This cycling shoe is the most heat mouldable shoe on the market today thanks to Bont's resin which has taken 36 years to perfect so it is extremely stiff but pliable at relatively low temperatures. To mould your shoes, remove any cleats, laces or cleat mounting screws and innersole before moulding. Pre-heat the oven to 70C/160F. Place the shoe in the oven for 20 minutes. Higher temperatures will void your warranty and may damage your boot. Let them cool a little and test the shoe temperature with your hand before placing your feet in the shoes. Tighten the straps and allow to cool. If you have any lumps or bunions on your feet or if there are any areas causing discomfort, while the shoe is hot you can use the round end of a screwdriver to press out any part of the boot. You can heat mould the shoes as many times as you like.
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.
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 have been perfecting their performance footwear lasts since 1975 and the process is ongoing which is why they believe 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. Their motto in terms of cycling shoe fit is simple, "We make shoes for cycling, not walking."
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. Structural medial longitudinal arch support is provided to stop over pronation of feet. This is also supported by Bont's Lateral Forefoot Support.
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 and piece of paper on a flat surface up against a wall. With your heel approximately 1mm away from the wall, stand on the tape measure, slowly roll your weight forward and onto the forefoot while keeping your heel firmly connected to the floor. Look down and take the measurement from the wall to your longest toe. Record the length. With your foot still in place, use a straight edge in a vertical position and place it up against the widest part of both sides of the foot. Measure the width across the widest part of your foot and record the number in millimetres. Repeat this step for both feet.
If you're unable to do this yourself, have someone take the measurements while you focus on keeping the entire foot connected to the ground at all times.
Once the measurements have been taken, first use the horizontal MM scale on the size chart to find your size (length). The MM sizes on the chart are the exact length of the last that Bont uses 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. For example, you measure your feet and the length of your left and right feet are 278mm and 280mm respectively. If you were browsing for a Helix, Riot+ Series, Vaypor S or other models from the top line size chart you would be exactly size 44.5. However, as stated, this is the exact length of the shoe last and unless you like your shoes to be very tight, you may wish to add an additional 5-8mm onto your measurements to account for toe room and sock thickness. This will result in the most appropriate size. In this case, you would select a size 45.
Following the selection of size (length), move downward to select the most appropriate width. Bont recommends adding 1mm to find the most appropriate width. For example, you are looking at a Vaypor S and have determined your best shoe size is 45 – accounting for the additional length added to your foot measurements. Your widths are 105mm and 107mm respectively and so, with an additional 1mm added, you would still fit within the Standard Fit. If your feet measured narrowed than 100mm or wider than 110mm, you would consider Narrow Fit or Wide Fit.
