The Riot MTB (Asian fit) combines Bont’s pro series technical features including their power transfer platform for greater efficiency while ascending, replaceable sole guards, anatomical shaping and competition grade materials to create the most technically advanced entry level MTB shoe. Heat Moulding Boasting unparalleled heat mouldable design, all of Bont’s shoes feature a proprietary resin. It has taken them 36 years of research, development and tweaks to create and perfect their resin to make an extremely stiff shoe that becomes pliable at relatively low temperatures. Where as many brands offering heat moulding can only do so in certain areas, a Bont shoe is mouldable across the entire chassis. With great anatomical design out of the box, the ability to fine tune your Bont shoe will give you an extremely customised fit for total comfort. Medial Longitude Arch Support Bont adds structural medial longitudinal arch support in all of their models to prevent over pronation. Bont believe 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. Asian Fit Bringing a wider toe box to the trail, the Riot MTB Shoe (Asian Fit) specifically fits to the shape of the foot and is narrower in the heel. Anatomical Foot Shape Bont offers a unique foot-shape on their shoes. Whereas nearly all cycling shoe companies make their footwear to a “dress shoe” shape which looks great, Bont believes this shape is too restrictive on the metatarsals. By crafting their shoes to allow more breathing room for your forefoot and toes, Bont aim to reduce “hot foot” and allow your foot to function in the most efficient and anatomically correct position. This technology allows your pedalling force to spread across a greater surface area, creating better impact and fantastic performance. Anatomical Heel Cup To increase stability during the pull through stage of pedalling, Bont have added an anatomically shaped heel cup. Without the need for over-tightening straps/laces or mechanical operation, you gain stabilization resulting in increased comfort and proper blood circulation. Lateral Forefoot Support To maintain a neutral position of the forefoot and prevent common issues that arise from over pronation and supination, Bont offers shoes with Lateral Forefoot Support. With a reduced risk of incorrect knee tracking and hip/lower back ache due to the correct positioning this enhancement encourages, you can ride for longer in confidence.
