Get ready to welcome the latest edition to the Bont cycling shoe family: the Helix, raising the bar higher than ever before with a newly reimagined closure system.
Based on the top range ‘Vapour’ shoe, the Helix has moved forward with all the old favourites and some clever new additions mixed in. The most important addition is the BOA IP1 Dual Dial Retention System, more specifically the placement of the Boa. The longer Kevlar wiring runs all the way around the foot and this paired with the over-lapping upper gives you greater control of the fit over the entire foot, ensuring both the top and sides fits snuggly.
Constructed from the Unidirectional Carbon Monocoque Chassis with ‘Durolite’ upper, these shoes have a 3.6mm stack height; for ventilation there are air vents on front bumper and perforated upper, which work well at keeping those hard-working feet cool and comfortable. The Helix has been designed to bring comfort for road cycling with the Memory Foam padding, whilst the EVA thermo-mouldable ensures personalised and proper connection with the pedals. Other features are the 3 Bolt Look Type Cleat Fitting, replaceable sole guards, MM grid plus grip with 3 Hole Look Configuration that firmly holds you in place, the light weight of only 230g, and the TPU Toe Protector does exactly what it says on the tin: keeps your toes safe from impact and wheel rub. A special material sandwiched between the lining and outer layer has been selected for its anti-stretch property, to make certain they fit as well on the first ride as they do on the last. To look after your feet and joints there is Medial Longitudinal Arch Support to prevent pressure on the knees. The Anatomical Forefoot Shape is what we are used to seeing from ‘Bont’, with a wider design and the last is that cycling-specific creation we have grown to love.
Combined with the Lateral Foot Support and Anotomical Heel Cup, the Helix’s are wonderfully comfortable as well as highly supportive where you need it most. They are available in five attractive designs: Metallic Blue/White, Black/Gold, Black, White/Charcoal and Shiny Red/White - a welcome addition to the Bont collection! RRP $399.00
