    Very close to perfect

    Posted by Opie on 21st Oct 2022

    Bullet points: - Shape of shoe amazing and like nothing else. Anatomically correct and your feet will not believe the difference. Perfect in every way - Stiff sole provides excellent transfer to pedals. Almost feels like cheating when compared to softer, more flexible shoes. - Above stiff sole and hard tread make these much more difficult to walk around in. Cleat doesn’t hit but (somewhat obviously) these are much harder off bike to get around in. - I would suggest maybe an “urban version” of this shoe with softer rubber compound for the tread. Most cyclists aren’t doing cyclocross-type stuff. No need for aggressive and hard tread most of the time. A softer compound would make off bike experience much better without sacrificing the stiff sole and terrific power transfer. - That said, this is a ridiculously amazing shoe for the price. Only not a 5 star because like the “perfect 10”, I believe those are only theoretical. Really a 4.8 or 4.9 star

    I wore the Riot MTB shoes at the World Gravel Bike Championships in Vicenza, Italy last Saturday. I won my event and the Bont Shoes obviously played some part in that win. They were comfortable and ideally suited to the conditions and 140km distance of the event.

    Best I've found

    Posted by molly despondent on 25th Apr 2022

    I was having some toe pain once I started racing and riding harder than I had recreationally in the past. I had used inexpensive shoes, but I wasn't on my bike 10 hours a week! I tried Bonts, Shimano RX8 and Sidi Dominators. All at the same time. The Dominators had a strange sole bending your foot to their design. The Shimano's were nice - but twice the price of the Bont's. They weren't much lighter, and the sole was not as tough for gravel abuse. The Bonts had the best toe space, and I liked the stiffness of the sole. The BOA works great

    Toe bed. Toe bed. Toe bed.

    I can't understand why all the other shoe companies smash our toes together. Its important they have space! Thats why i chose these over SIDI or Shimano RX8's. However, the foot bed sides is kinda hard. Not fun to walk in, but very stiff on the bike. I think I'll keep them forever!

    Nice shoe!

    Posted by John on 5th Feb 2022

    It’s a good shoe! I wish there was a similar shoe with an even wider toe box and some more flex in the sole. These are great road biking shoes because they have a stiff sole and are reasonably comfortable. For real mountain biking which includes hiking I’d like more comfort and flex while retaining the ability to clip in.

    Bont Riot MTB

    I love my new Bonts! Nice and stiff. They fit great, although about a half size small, in my estimation. I usually take a 7 1/2 to an 8 US, and I had to order an 8.5 US. Anyway, I think my biggest wish would be that if a size didn't fit, there should be free returns if returning for a different size. Rapha did that for a pair of road shoes I purchased a few years back, and that really impressed me, customer service wise. I would recommend these shoes to anyone, especially if you find that your feet fall asleep in other shoes. I do not experience that anymore, with my new Bonts.

    These fit my wide toes

    Posted by Ryan on 7th Jan 2022

    I usually wear sandals and because of that my toes are in a more natural spread out position, especially my big toe. Due to this I have difficulty finding a shoe that doesn't squish my toes together and often have to go a size up, leaving a lot to be desired. These shoes in "Asian Fit" width fit me quite well. The heel is also fairly narrow compared to other shoes and fits good, although it could stand to be a bit narrower. I have replaced the original insole with a Specialized one to increase the arch support. My only slight complaint is the tongue is loose and needs to be pulled up before cinching up the shoe. Other than that the quality and build are excellent for the price.

    Very Dissapointed

    Posted by Roy Vandermaar on 30th Jul 2021

    Not happy I have to write this review, but I have not had a positive experience dealing with Bont Cycling. After going through the sizing exercise with the sales team and submitting traces of my foot, the shoes ended up being way too big. I expressed my interest in exchanging for the correct size and was told I would have to pay to return the items and then re-order. I went to the local courier and was told it would be $55 to ship the shoes back. I decided that was just way too much money as I had already spent a great deal on these shoes. After explaining this to customer service I was told "that is our policy" and there is no other option. I have ordered and exchanged shoes from multiple other companies and they always include a return slip. This makes sense. If a company wants to provide direct order service, they need to make it easy on the customer and these types of returns/exchanges need to be built into the business model. I would have been a loyal customer with repeat business for years to come, now instead, I will not support this brand and I certainly will not have anything positive to say about it. And I find it very strange that they would ask for my review when multiple staff members are aware of my bad experience.

    Great shoe that won’t break the bank!

    Posted by Benjamin Love on 7th Jul 2021

    As usual, a lot of shoe at a great price from Bont. Nice sized toe box for my hobbit feet, boa system and heat moldable. This time I decided not to heat mold as they’re perfect out of the box. Big thanks to the Bont team❤️
