Bont Vaypor XC Shoes 2017
Designed solely for performance and speed, the Bont Vaypor XC Shoes 2017 are the ultimate in efficiency and control over rougher surfaces. The handmade carbon composite monocoque construction combines with Bont’s anatomical and biomechanical features, allowing for a low stack height to get you closer to the crank arm, ensuring you’re on the right side of energy efficiency.
Weighing just 340g per shoe, these XC/CX specific shoes are bound to push your performance to new heights. The Boa closure furthers the impressive comfort and fit provided, all whilst the Velcro closure adds a classic, stylish look to the Vaypor.
When you’re riding off-road, there’s no denying that sometimes you need to just get off and push, especially when you’re racing cyclocross and that barrier is just too high. For this, Bont has introduced a new grip plate which maximises grip in low-friction conditions. Thanks to its unique form, this plate minimises the retention of dirt and mud, whilst replaceable spike mounts located in the toe section give extra traction when running over obstacles.
Durability has also been addressed in the Vaypor XC Shoes, and an anti-stretch Kevlar inner has been stitched to the outer sole, then bonded, meaning you’ll get the same fit day-in, day-out, no matter what conditions you spin your legs in. The layer also assists in pedalling efficiency by maintaining a supportive structure over the top of the foot.
What really sets any of the Bont shoes apart are the heat moulds, though. Developed over 36 years to be the stiffest resin available, the entirety of the shoes to provide the cyclist with the most anatomically designed shoe on the market.
