Durolite Outer Skin:
Strength to weight ratios have always played an important part in Bont cycling shoe design as all materials considered and developed for products within the Bont range must comply to strict standards. Durolite has been developed and chosen for the Vaypor S upper and liner for its extremely durable nature and light weight. Initially stock colours will be matt white, matt black/gloss black details and matt black/white details.
Unidirectional Carbon and Micro Grid:
The Vaypor S is manufactured utilizing unidirectional carbon fibre laid specific to stress points to maximise performance whilst minimising weight, creating the highest strength to weight ratio of any cycling shoe currently available. The base is finished with a matt treatment to improve the aesthetics of the sole. Bont Cycling’s Micro Grid allows for greater accuracy in cleat placement and adjustment.
Toe and heel protection:
A new one piece toe guard has been designed to further reduce weight, increase airflow into shoe and improve the aesthetics of the front area. The heel guard has also been designed to improve grip.
One of the key features of the Vaypor S is it’s new upper design and integrated retention system. Whilst designing the Vaypor S, it was imperative that the shoe would cater to the extremely demanding needs of professional sprinters. Pro sprinters require not only an extremely comfortable shoe with lossless power transfer, but also a highly adjustable retention system that is able to lock them into the heel cup of a shoe without any heel movement. The Vaypor S achieves this to perfection with the dual directional micro adjustability of the IP1 BOA dial and new upper design that wraps and pulls the foot rearwards without any excess pressure.
Ventilation of the Vaypor S is maximized by including ventilation holes across the tongue, top of the forefoot, through the front bumper and arch area of the shoe. The ventilation system of the Vaypor S has been designed to create an even airflow around the foot for cooling.
Between the outer skin and the liner a material is added 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 assists in pedalling efficiency by maintaining a supportive structure over the top of the foot in the upward part of the pedal stroke.
The Vaypor S utilises closed cell memory foam that will not retain water assisting in maintaining a lighter shoe during wet conditions as well as ensuring sweat which can begin to break down the durability of the shoe is not absorbed.
Bont cycling shoe is the most heat mouldable 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 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.
