Bont's Blitz Road Shoes bring monocoque carbon chassis construction to a greater number of riders
Utilizing Bont's tried and tested head-moldable chassis, the Bont Blitz delivers optimal levels of rigidity and power transfer, which has quickly made them a class-leader in the mid-price category. The 100% carbon fibre chassis can be moulded into the perfect fit for your foot; Bont has refined this chassis design, which cups your heel for a more natural fit.
This sole is a 3-hole Look configuration and the innersole is also thermo-moldable EVA to further enhance the customization of these shoes. The microfiber upper is comfortable, looks good and wears extremely well. The stack height of the base has been decreased to 3.6mm to further improve efficiency while a weight of 235 grams puts the Blitz at the feathery end of the market.
Designed for speed and comfort, the Blitz boasts more venting than other Bont models, so your feet are kept more comfortable in the warmer months, while a single BOA dial and forefoot velcro strap closure system keeps your foot secure, without unwelcome hot spots on your feet.
Bont adds structural medial longitudinal arch support in all of their models to prevent over pronation. Bont believes that over pronation is a big cause of knee injuries as the incorrect tracking of knees while in the riding position can cause rotation of the tibia and femur. This can also cause the pelvis to tilt, resulting in lower back strain. By adding extra support in this key area, they make shoes that allow you to perform longer, with less risk of injury. They also offer a unique foot shape on their shoes, which allows more breathing room for your forefoot and toes; Bont aim to reduce 'hot spots' so your foot functions in the most efficient and anatomically correct position. This technology allows your pedaling force to spread across a greater surface area, creating better impact and fantastic performance.
Bont's cycling shoes are the most heat moldable shoes available. Bont's proprietary resin has been developed and perfected over 36 years to be an extremely stiff resin that becomes pliable at relatively low temperatures. Unlike other shoes which are moldable only in select locations, all Bont cycling shoes are able to be molded over the entire chasis providing cyclists not only with the most anatomically designed cycling shoe on the market today, but also with the ability to fine tune the fit of the entire shoe to give a customised fit.

To find your size, place a tape measure on a flat surface up against a wall. Stand on the tape measure with your heel against the wall. Look down and take the measurement from your longest toe. Then use the MM scale on the size chart to find your size.
The mm sizes on the size chart are the exact length of the last that we use 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. Eg. You measure your foot and it is 268mm is size which is a size 42.5. Unless you like your shoes very tight, you may wish to wear a size 43.
The mm size on chart refers to exact length of the last. Depending on your preferred fit (tight or roomy) please allow 2-4mm extra length when choosing your size.
