BONT Helix Road Shoe$356
The new gold standard in performance footwear, the Bont Cycling Helix Road Cycling Shoes features a race-proven anatomic fit with a reimagined BOA IP1 closure system.
Tipping the scales at a competitive 260g per shoe, the true Bont Cycling Helix difference comes via the fully heat mouldable monocoque carbon chassis and industry-leading 3.6mm stack height. Think you’re close to the pedal spindle in your current shoes? The Bont Cycling Helix will get you closer. Experience performance and comfort without compromise like never before.
Reimagined BOA Fit System
The Helix utilizes an internal BOA lacing system designed for a complete and even hold on the foot for greater security and comfort. Featuring a unique and never before seen BOA lacing system, the Helix shares the same fit and performance function of the popular Vaypor S while simplifying the enclosure for those too fast to wait.
Built to go the distance
The Helix features a bathtub-style unidirectional carbon fibre monocoque chassis unlike no other. An anti-stretch liner is built into the carbon chassis of the shoe before the outer Durolite skin is wrap over the top. The result: a stiff, comfortable and durable high-end shoe that will never stretch or deform over time. All Bont Cycling shoes feature replaceable toe and heel bumpers, for improved stability when off the bike.
Anatomically Correct Cycling Shoes
Conventional cycling shoes offer dress shoe-style shaping. While aesthetically pleasing, this shape can cause the toes and metatarsals to constrict, compressing nerves between the metatarsals leading to the rider experiencing dreaded 'hot foot' sensations. All Bont Cycling shoes feature a true anatomic shaping to allow the foot to function in its most efficient and functionally 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.
Improved Comfort and Power Transfer
The monocoque carbon chassis of the Helix is not only incredibly stiff but also built for greater support and comfort for rides long and short. Built-in structural medial longitudinal arch support prevents over pronation of feet. Overpronation is one of the main contributors to incorrect tracking of knees and can cause unwanted rotation of the tibia a femur during the pedal stroke leading to injury. An anatomical heel cup and specifically-tailored upper design not only holds the foot firmly in place but pushes it rearward into the shoe for an improved foothold and in turn, a more relaxed foot.
Bont’s lateral forefoot support ensures a neutral position of the foot over the pedal spindle and alleviates common issues with feet ‘spilling’ over the shoe. These issues often result in incorrect tracking of knees causing injuries along with hip and lower back pain.
