Bont Riot Triathlon Shoe
Introducing the Riot TR Triathlon Shoe by Bont, one of the worlds first carbon composite heat mouldable triathlon shoes. The Riot TR combines Bont’s pro series technical features including our power transfer platform and anatomical shaping with competition grade materials to create the most technically advanced entry level triathlon shoe. Bont cycling shoes are the most heat mouldable shoes available. Bont’s proprietary resin has been developed and perfected over 36 years to be extremely stiff, becoming pliable at relatively low temperatures. Unlike other shoes which are mouldable only in select locations, all Bont cycling shoes are able to be moulded over the entire chassis 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.
Medial Longitudinal Arch Support: Structural medial longitudinal arch support is provided in all models to stop over pronation of feet. Over pronation is one of the main contributors to incorrect tracking of knees during a cyclists pedalling phase due to internal rotation of tibia and femur. This can result in knee injuries. In addition, the rotation of tibia/femur can cause the pelvis to tilt resulting in lower back strain. Anatomical Forefoot Shape: 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. Anatomical Heel Cup: The anatomical heel cup shaping of Bont cycling shoes provides increased stability during the pull through stage of pedalling stroke and up stroke. This stabilization is achieved without any mechanical operation or over tightening of straps/laces allowing for increased comfort and blood circulation. Lateral Forefoot Support: Bont’s lateral forefoot support ensures neutral positioning of the forefoot and alleviates common issues associated with over pronation and supination. These issues often result in incorrect tracking of knees causing injuries along with hip and lower back pain.
WARNING: Bont Shoes size at least a size too small in relation to what people typically expect. The best way to obtain what the correct size is to measure your foot and compare to the chart. See the tab above for a more detailed size guide.

"The Bont Riot TR is an entry-level tri shoe chock full of pro-level features. A carbon composite sole is moulded into the company’s trademark ‘tub’ shape to cover the sole, as well as the sides of the shoe. This helps with the retention and adds lateral support. The massive heel loop and dual strap Velcro retention system will make transitions quick and easy, while the micro-fibre upper and mesh panels will keep your feet cool and dry. Bont uses a proprietary resin to create the Riot TR’s fully heat mouldable construction, furthering comfort and fit."
