Wiggo's BONT Zero Shoes
REVIEW DATE: 18 Jul, 2012

Bradley Wiggins is widely renowned for leaving no stone unturned when it comes to technology that can attain a gain in performance.  With The interface between foot and pedal being the most important contact point it is no surprise Wiggo sought out Bont to supply his footwear.

The Bont "Zero" model cycling shoe combines all Bont's technical knowledge into one state of the art racing shoe designed specifically for the art of climbing, but to be just as much at home on flat roads.

The Bont Zero is handmade and has a 100% carbon monocoque chassis with a laminated silver fiberglass upper. Our carbon layup techniques have been further refined through testing to reduce the effective weight of the shoe without compromising its structural integrity and performance.

As with all of Bont's elite level shoes, the Zero has a unidirectional carbon construction (with exception of final cosmetic layer), 3.6 mm stack height (less than half of any other brand), industry leading strength to weight ratio and Bont’s proprietary resin allowing customisation of fit.

As with all of the Bont models, the Zero has been built with functionality and performance as the primary focus. Our technology allows for far lower weights to be achieved, but our focus was to design and develop a shoe with full structural integrity and without any loss in performance through flex.

Developed with input from Michael Rogers of HTC-Columbia with 5 months active testing under professional racing conditions.

Bont are the only shoe brand that really understands "fit", 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 the 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.

The Bont Zero is the lightweight shoe of choice , but not only for those who are lightweight.
