Bike Discounts UK - Bont Blitz Road Shoe Cycling Shoes
Superior Performance Features 100% Carbon Chassis The 100% 3K carbon construction of the shoe chassis has been specifically designed to ensure maximum performance at an incredible low weight. Despite the low weight the chassis provides incredible stiffness for the very best power transfer. Custom Heat Moulding Bont Cycling's proprietary thermo-mouldable resin ensures the fit customization of the Blitz can be made using a standard home oven. Click on the video tab for full instructions. A Bont cycling shoe is the most heat mouldable shoe 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 mouldable only in select locations, all Bont cycling shoes are able to be moulded over the entire chassis providing you with not only 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 true customised fit. Secure and adjustable Retention System The BOA dial and a forefoot strap ensures micro adjustability of the fit both when on and off the bike ensuring you can obtain the best feel and performance at all times. Great Ventilation The Bont Blitz is highly ventilated via integrated top mesh panels and ventilation holes throughout the side microfiber panels. This allows cool fresh air to enter and moist warm air to escape regulating the temperature for more comfort. Durable Microfiber upper The upper is constructed using a high grade gloss Microfiber to provide the Bont Blitz with a strong outer layer able to withstand the rigours of everyday cycling whilst mesh inserts assist with breathability in hot weather. Cycling Specific 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, they have been perfecting their performance footwear lasts since 1975 and the process is ongoing. They firmly believe that they place more importance and thus place more effort into their lasts 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. This is summed up in their motto "We make shoes for cycling, not walking." Medial Longitudinal Arch Support Structural medial longitudinal arch support is provided in all models to stop over pronation of feet. Over pronation is one of the main contributors to incorrect tracking of knees during a cyclists pedalling phase due to internal rotation of tibia and femur. This can result in knee injuries. In addition, the rotation of tibia/femur can cause the pelvis to tilt resulting in lower back strain. Anatomical Forefoot Shape Conventional cycling shoes offer a “dress shoe” type shaping. Although highly aesthetic this will cause the toes along with the metatarsals to be overly constricted, compressing the nerves between the metatarsals which often results in the common "hot foot" sensation. Bont cycling shoes anatomical shaping allows your foot to function in its most efficient and anatomically correct position. The foot is supported in its endeavour to relax through the metatarsal joints allowing the pedalling force to be spread across the greatest possible surface area. Anatomical Heel Cup The anatomical heel cup shaping of Bont cycling shoes provides increased stability during the pull through stage of the pedalling stroke and into the up stroke. This stabilisation is achieved without any mechanical operation or over tightening of straps/laces allowing for increased comfort and blood circulation. Lateral Forefoot Support Bont’s lateral forefoot support ensures neutral positioning of the forefoot and alleviates common issues associated with over pronation and supination. These issues often result in incorrect tracking of knees causing injuries along with hip and lower back pain.
