The Bont Vaypor S shoes are comfortable enough for long days in the saddle, with stiffness in a sole that sprinters are happy to use.
The Vaypor Sprint, Bont's flagship road shoe, just got lighter, stronger and faster. Utilizing Bont's tried and tested head-moldable chassis, the Vaypor Sprint delivers optimal levels of rigidity and power transfer, which has made them the choice of some of cycling's best-known professionals. This chassis is 100% carbon fibre and thanks to its monocoque it's able to be moulded into the perfect fit for your foot. Bont has refined this aspect of their premium shoes and new levels of comfort are now able to be achieved thanks also to the chassis design, which cups your heel for a more natural fit.
This sole is a 3-hole Look configuration, with a measurement grid to aid in cleat placement. The innersole is also thermo-moldable EVA to further enhance the customization of these shoes and adding to the comfort factor is the Duralite upper and suede leather liner, which wrap snugly around your foot and act as a welcome counter to the rigidity of the Vaypor Sprint's sole. Durolite has been developed and chosen for the Vaypor S upper and liner for its extremely durable nature and light weight.
Designed for speed and comfort, the Vaypor S has venting in the front for the warmer months, while a dual-boa closure system is easy to use and keeps your foot secure, without unwelcome hot spots on your feet. At a scant 230g each (in a size 42), they're light enough for the most discerning weight-weenie, whilst retaining the kind of power transfer that a sprinter looks for.
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.
