Tri level performance at great value. The Bont Riot TR Triathlon cycling shoes are carbon composite, heat moulded, entry-level triathlon shoes. It's rare to find such technical features at this price point.
The Riot TR shoes come with trickle down tech from Bont's premium offerings including a stiff power transfer platform, anatomical shaping and competition grade materials.
A microfibre uppers offers a strong outer layer to withstand daily training whilst keeping things breathable. Layers of carbon composite sandwiched between fibreglass to maximise strength whilst lowering overall weight.
Heat moulding creates a very anatomical design that can then be optimised by using the double Velcro closure.
Microfibre upper : Microfibre upper is used to provide the Bont Riot with a strong outer layer to withstand the rigours of everyday cycling whilst mesh inserts assist with the breathability of the cycling shoes.
Carbon Composite Construction : The fibreglass 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 the fibreglass to maximise strength.
Retention System : Independent double velcro closure system to allow for maximum adjustability. The main strap has been designed to allow it to be maintained in a fully opened state to assist in quick transition times.
Ventilation : The Bont Riot is highly ventilated via integrated top mesh panels and ventilation holes throughout the side Microfibre panels.
Heat Moulding : All Bont cycling shoes are able to be moulded over the entire chasis providing the most anatomically designed cycling shoe on the market, but with the ability to fine tune the fit of the entire shoe to give a customised fit.
This product gets great reviews and in most respects is a great product. Sizewise I did a bit of research on other site reviews on this product where was recommendations to go up a size from the BONT size chart since shoes come up very narrow. The truth is that BONT size EU48 actually fits for the foot length 315 mm.

The build quality on these looked great the velcro strap was good in that it had a notch to keep it open for getting your feet into quicker but the shoes were too small for me so I have sent back and gone for a half size up.

Cycling shoes are stiffer, lighter and comfortable than casual footwear. More rigid soles help you transfer more power through the pedals which improves your performance.
A snug fit with quality fastenings keep your feet planted in the shoes to prevent rubbing, chafing and blisters. On longer rides this is key to comfort.
Cycling shoes come in two types – clipless & non-clipless.
Clipless Shoes – fix to a cleat which then clips in to your pedals. You get a firmer and more stable contact with the pedal. This improves efficiency.
Non-clipless Shoes – also called flat shoes don’t feature cleat systems and look just like casual trainers.
Before buying cycling shoes, make sure they’re compatible with your pedal’s cleat system. Most pedals use a 2 or 3 bolt cleat system.
2 bolt cleat system
Mainly on mountain bike shoes with recessed cleats. This makes walking easier. Common 2 bolt cleat systems are Shimano SPD and Crank Brothers.
3 bolt cleat system
Mainly on road cycling shoes where the cleat protrudes from the shoe. This makes walking difficult but greatly improves pedaling efficiency thanks to a firmer platform. Common 3 bolt cleat systems are Shimano SPD-SL, Time, Look and Speedplay.
Flat pedals have no cleat system so you can wear any non-clipless (flat) shoes.
This will come down primarily to cleat compatibility as discussed above.
Road cycling shoes
3 bolt compatibility
Road cycling shoes are low profile and fitted with a stiff nylon or carbon fibre sole. Their main function is to improve energy transfer.
You’ll find no grips on the sole as they’re not designed for walking. Ratchet style fastenings are common on entry shoes while micro-adjustable BOA fastenings offer the best fit.
Mountain biking shoes
2 bolt compatibility
More rugged and bulky than road shoes, they also come with grips on the sole so you can walk on muddy conditions. Recessed cleats are built into the sole – for off-the-bike comfort.
XC racing shoes are lighter with stiff carbon soles and minimal tread, they look like beefed up road shoes. Clipless skate shoes are loved by gravity riders thanks to a casual style, comfort off the bike and a cleat that’s placed further back on the sole for more ‘feel’.
Flat cycling shoes
Often skate inspired design. Stiffer sole with extra tacky rubber soles for traction. Great for commuting and recreational riding.
Women’s cycling shoes
Designed with a narrower heel and shallower height between the sole and upper. These shoes come in smaller sizes too.
The most common cause of foot numbness is improperly fitting shoes. Check the size guide for sizing and if you're between sizes go for the next size up. This is because your feet will swell slightly so a tight shoe will contrict blood vessels, making toes and feet go numb.
Another cause could be improperly aligned cleats. You could consider positioning cleats further back towards your heel to offer more even pressure across your foot.
