                  Bont Riot

                  Posted by Tom Swarm on 6th Jun 2023

                  Have had for 3 weeks. Had to return for 1/2 size smaller and went well. Shoes fit perfectly without doing the heat molding. Have done a few 60+ days and they were comfortable the whole time. I’m off my bike a lot and sometimes kneeling. In my opinion the best feature is the extra rubber around the toe to protect it. Toes are the first thing to wear through on my other shoes. Will buy again in hopefully 10 or 12k miles.

                  Great Fit!

                  These are truly comfortable and a perfect fit for me. They were recommended by the person who fit me on my bike and he was 100% correct. Great shoe!

                  Great shoe with excellent performance

                  This shoe is a tremendous value. It's my second pair of Bonts and fits GREAT (thank you heat-moldable sole). Very light, SUPER STIFF means lots of power transfer with minimal loss. I really like the ventilation in this shoe too.

                  I’m not sure

                  Posted by Craig P on 3rd Dec 2021

                  It is hard to attribute causation, so I’m not sure if the shoes or new cleats are a problem. I like the shoes (other than they had no insole or arch support) but that may be the trade-off for the price. The adjustment slot for the cleats doesn’t seem to go as far towards the toe as I would like so that is like raising the saddle and reduces calf use. Maybe that is the cause of my new knee pain, but maybe I have to go in for a bike and cleat refit - about the same price as shoes \_(ツ)_/¯

                  I'm back in the saddle

                  I quit riding 15 years ago because I couldn't find a shoe to fit my bunions. Enter Bond Cycling. Now I'm back on the Bianchi that had been gathering dust in the garage. Happy days.

                  Loved the company and the idea behind the shoes

                  Posted by Andrew on 1st Nov 2021

                  But I could not love the shoe. I went through the fitting process, followed the heating instructions to a T, and the Bont team helped every step of the way. However, the shoes just did not fit and did not deliver on the toebox comfort.

                  Comfy but a bit loose

                  Posted by Davethewave on 26th Oct 2021

                  Shoes are big improvement in comfort and fit relative to old carbon shimanos. However, they’re not as responsive since uppers are thinner, looser and only have 2 straps instead of 3. But this shoe is for comfort, not performance. My sneaker size is 13D, so I got 50W with extra sole inserts. Used shoes for 10 rides, and, overall , I’m satisfied with these shoes.

                  Wife Loves These Shoes

                  Posted by Joe Swanson on 6th Oct 2021

                  I bought these shoes for my wife. Her previous shoes were causing pain as they were too narrow. We picked the wide version of the BONT Riot+ and they fit her perfectly. No more pain or discomfort. They are stiff, yet comfortable, and a great looking shoe!

                  Love the shoe, this is my third pair. Has gotten better over the years. Just wish there was a little padding under the eyelet for the velcro strap.
