Anti Stretch

Between the outer skin and the liner we add a material that is proprietary to Bont to stop the cycling shoe from stretching over time. This material has similar strength characteristics to Kevlar. The material is stitched to the outer skin and bonded to the liner so it can never move or be removed, it becomes part of the cycling shoes structure. This layer assits in pedalling efficiency by maintaining a supportive structure over the top of the foot in the upward part of the pedal stroke.

Last Design

A last is a plastic replica of a foot that the boot is built around. Last makers do not make skate lasts, they only make shoe lasts so perfecting a speed skating last is not an easy prospect. At Bont, we have been perfecting our lasts since 1975 and the process is ongoing. We feel that we put more effort into our last than any other skating brand and it is the reason that Bont boots fit more skaters than any other brand on the market.

Padding

The Crono is designed for high class athletes so the padding used is a thin, dense padding that is quite unforgiving. The padding is harder than our previous generations of Crono and it is also lighter. Like all Bont padding, we use a closed cell memory foam that will not retain water. If you are after a more comfortable ride, please select one of our softer padding options.

Heat Moulding

Bont boot is the most heat moldable shoes 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 moldable only in select locations, all Bont boots are able to be molded over the entire chasis providing cyclist not only with 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 customised fit.

The Crono is only available as a stock boot, sorry no customs. We can only make one pair per week max.

Bont Innersole for inline

Bont innersoles are made of heat moldable EVA. They are comfortable and thin so they don't take up too much space in your boot. The edges are curved and thin so that there is a seamless transition between the innersole and your boot liner.
