Description

Overview

The Bont "Zero" model cycling shoe combines all our technical knowledge into one state of the art racing shoe designed specifically for the art of climbing, but to be just as much at home on flat roads.

The Bont Zero is handmade and has a 100% carbon monocoque chassis with a laminated silver fiberglass upper. Our carbon layup techniques have been further refined through testing to reduce the effective weight of the shoe without compromising its structural integrity and performance.

As with all of Bont's elite level shoes, the Zero has a unidirectional carbon construction (with exception of final cosmetic layer), 3.6 mm stack height, industry leading strength to weight ratio and Bont’s proprietary resin allowing customisation of fit.

As with all of our models, the Zero has been built with functionality and performance as the primary focus. Our technology allows for far lower weights to be achieved, but our focus was to design and develop a shoe with full structural integrity and without any loss in performance through flex.

Developed with input from Michael Rogers of HTC-Columbia with 5 months active testing under professional racing conditions.

The Bont Zero is the lightweight shoe of choice , but not only for those who are lightweight.

medial Longitudinal Arch Support

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

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

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

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.
