Product Description

The BONT Riot sets the standard for road shoes in the sub £200 arena. Fully heat mouldable with excellent comfort, support and unmatched stiffness at the price, the Bont Riot is exceptionally capable and a serious performer - arguably the best choice for the cyclist on a budget.

The original Bont Riot, when it was released in 2014, was an absolute giant killer of a product. It rapidly became our biggest selling sub £200 shoe thanks to the incredible technology offered at such an appealing price. Granted, the price has increased for this latest revision, but the Riot remains an incredible shoe for the money. I cannot overstate just how impressive this shoe is.

The original Riot featured a strap / buckle closure and was available in just 2 colours; black and white, yet it was laden with the trickle-down technology of the company's flagship heat-moldable race shoes.

Ultimately, little has changed in the construction. The Riot's chassis is constructed from a carbon-fibreglass matrix that, while not as stiff as the Vaypor S and Vaypor +, is unmatched by traditional shoes with nylon/carbon soles that you will find on shoes at this price. The most noticable changes to the Riot are the replacement of the old ratchet closure with the ubiquitous Boa IP1 dial closure, which offers a more even distribution of retention forces across the top of the foot, and the aesthetic. Not only has the styling of the shoe changed, with numerous colours to suit all tastes, but on closer inspection it is immediately evident that the finish of the shoes is markedly better than the original version - which could be a tad scrappy.

The main selling point of the Riot however is that which makes Bont so special regardless of price point : Firstly they use proprietary lasts that are shaped like a human foot and designed specifically for cycling. As a result, fit is uncompromisingly accurate. Secondly is the incredible stiffness they are able to build into their shoes and this stems from their use of in-house resins - something that BONT claim no-one else does. BONT have been developing resin technology for 39 years. The resins used in their shoes enable them to be heat-molded repeatedly by the rider at relatively low temperatures. Usually this would be to the detriment of the structure of the shoe but BONT's rapid curing resin means that your shoes will harden quickly without compromising fit or comfort. Ultimately, you can put your shoes in the oven at 70oC for 20 minutes and then strap them on your feet, allow them to cool and have a shoe that is totally tailored to your foot.

Despite this stiffness they are remarkably comfortable thanks to the sensible shape of the Last and the relatively open toe-box. The ability to repeatedly mold the shoe and 'work-out' (with the blunt end of a screwdriver) any areas that cause pressure or discomfort means that you will be able to perfect the fit if you don't get it right straight away or if your feet change. 

It is really important to stress here that most other manufacturers offer you a heat-moldable sole, what BONT offer is a heat-moldable CHASSIS so you are getting a far more tailored fit. Not only that but at a fraction of the price of many other heat-moldable shoes out there these represent real value for money and are ideal for the cyclist looking to improve and compete. They come complete with shoe bag to keep them in top condition. 

l:The Riot combines Bont's pro series technical features including power transfer platform and anatomical shaping with competition grade materials to create the most technically advanced entry level road cycling shoe.


Technical Information:

The base of the shoe is moldable which means all stiff areas of the shoe can be molded in a standard oven. You do not need to mold your shoes if they fit you straight out of the box. To mold your shoes, remove any cleats, laces or cleat mounting screws and innersole before molding. Failure to remove the innersole can result in it becoming deformed by the heat.

Pre heat the oven to 70oC/160F. Place the shoe in the oven for 20 minutes. Higher temperatures will void your warranty and may damage your shoe.

Caution: Do not place your feet in the hot shoes immediately or you may burn your feet. 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 mold the shoes as many times as you like.

Occasionally, without notice, manufacturers change product design and/or specifications.

Road Shoe Guide

 

Road Cycling Shoe Guide

Road Cycling Shoes

Road cycling shoes are lightweight with stiff soles to help you push your power through the pedals more efficiently. To attach the foot to the bike, road cycling shoes have holes in the bottom for fitting cleats that clip in to the confusingly named clipless pedals. Traditionally, cyclists would use toe clips that wrapped around the shoe to hold their foot firmly on the pedals. Clipless pedals do away with the toe clip and use cleats that attach firmly to the pedals instead.


Which road cycling shoes are compatible with my pedals?

There are two different ways to attach cleats to your shoes and it is important that you choose the correct ones to work with your pedals.

Two-bolt, SPD compatible shoes

The two-bolt, SPD clipless system was developed first for road cycling by Shimano. These use a small cleat that attaches to the shoe with two bolts. SPD pedals are easy to clip in and out of but don’t hold the foot as securely as three-bolt systems.

Two-bolt, SPD compatible shoes

Today two-bolt SPD pedals are mostly used for mountain biking, touring and commuting. That said, SPD pedals are also a good option for road riders who are new to clipless pedals and want to be able to clip in and out easily. SPD cleats are often recessed into the sole of the shoe, so you can still walk relatively normally in these shoes.

There are many other types of pedal that are compatible with the Shimano two-bolt SPD fitting system. SPD compatible shoes are also suitable for use with MTB pedals that use a two-bolt cleat, including those from top brands like Crank Brothers, HT, Time and Look to name a few.


Three-bolt, SPD-SL compatible shoes

The three-bolt, SPD-SL system, also developed by Shimano, is now the type that most road riders use. Three-bolt SPD-SL cleats are much larger than two-bolt SPD style cleats and hold your foot much more securely in the pedals. Just what you need for fast, efficient road cycling.

Three bolt shoes - The cleats use 3 bolts in a triangular arrangement

As well as Shimano, three-bolt SPD-SL shoes are compatible with road bike pedals from brands including Look, HT, Garmin and Wellgo amongst others. The one exception to this are Speedplay pedals that use a four-bolt system, although these are often supplied with adaptors for fitting to three-bolt shoes.


Two and three-bolt compatible shoes

Some road bike shoes are compatible with both two and three-bolt compatible pedals. These shoes will have five holes, so you can choose to fit either an SPD style cleat or an SPD-SL style cleat. These shoes are a great option if you would like to start off using SPD pedals, then move on to SPD-SL pedals once you have gained confidence.

Soles with 5 holes are compatible with both 2 and 3 bolt pedals

Laces, straps, ratchets and BOAs

A snug fit is essential if you want to get the best performance from your shoes. Your feet swell slightly as they warm up, so a system that is easy to adjust while you ride is also an advantage, especially in long rides. While you can get a snug fit with laces, most road bike shoes use different closure systems that are easier to fine tune and more convenient on the bike.

Velcro straps are easy to use and adjust. Entry level road bike shoes will have two or three straps for a snug fit. Ratchet buckle closures offer a more secure fit and are also easy to adjust. Mid-level road cycling shoes often have a top ratchet closure, for a more secure fit, combined with one or two Velcro straps.

BOA and Velcro fastening

A lace up system without the laces, BOA uses steel laces with nylon guides and a dial for easy closure and adjustment. The main advantage of the BOA closure system is its ability to equalize pressure evenly across the foot for a very snug fit that is also comfortable. BOA is micro adjustable, so you can fine tune the fit more closely than a ratchet. Two-way BOA dials make it very easy to adjust the fit during a ride.


Soles

Road bike shoes have very stiff soles for efficient pedalling. Nylon and fiberglass soles are used to make road bike shoes stiff. Carbon soles are the stiffest and lightest and you will find these on top-of-the-range shoes. Some road bike shoes have walking pads on the sole, so you can walk almost normally when off the bike.

Uppers

Ventilated uppers help your feet to breathe and prevent overheating on long rides and you will find these on most road bike shoes. You can wear these shoes all-year-round by slipping on some overshoes in colder weather. Dedicated winter road boots will keep your feet warm and dry when it is really cold and wet. Reflective trim is a feature that is well worth considering for commuting and winter cycling.
