Offer updated on 5/18/2021
Introducing Helix, the new standard in performance footwear. Bont Cycling’s race-proven anatomic fit is now even further enhanced by a newly reimagined closure system. Experience performance and comfort without compromise like never before. Features: Durolite Strength to weight ratio's have always played an important part in Bont cycling shoe design as all materials considered and developed for products within the Bont range must comply to strict standards. Durolite has been developed and chosen for the Helix upper for its extremely durable nature and light weight. Retention System Continuous wiring spreads the load for a secure hold without localised pressure points. Cable Routing Cable routing wraps around and under the rigid carbon chassis for a wide, even anchor point. Single Boa The single Boa dial simplifies operation for quick and easy on-the-fly adjustments. Unidirectional Carbon Chassis The Helix continues with its unidirectional monocoque chassis in matt finish and is upgraded with an improved grid to assist cleat adjustment. TPU Toe Protector The toe protector not only protects the front area of the shoe from wheel rub and impact, but also houses ventilation holes for improving airflow through the shoe. Ventilation The Helix is highly ventilated with integrated air vents on the front bumper providing direct airflow into the shoe along with perforated upper and tongue to maximise breathability. Anti Stretch Between the outer leather and the liner we add a material that is proprietary to Bont to stop the cycling shoe from stretching over time. This material has similar strength characteristics to Kevlar. The material is stitched to the outer leather and bonded to the liner so it can never move or be removed, it becomes part of the cycling shoes structure. This layer assits in pedalling efficiency by maintaining a supportive structure over the top of the foot in the upward part of the pedal stroke. 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, we have been perfecting our performance footwear lasts since 1975 and the process is ongoing. We believe we place more importance and thus place more effort into our last 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. Our motto in terms of cycling shoe fit is simple, ""We make shoes for cycling, not walking."" Carbon Fiber Bont carbon fiber is sourced exclusively from the world's #1 carbon manufacturer, Toray of Japan. The base of the Helix is made by hand utilizing uni-directional carbon fiber which is embedded with epoxy thermo setting resin. The fibers are hand laid in the matrix according to the strain...
