Bont Cycling launches new road shoe with innovative closure design

Published March 20, 2018

SYDNEY (BRAIN) — Bont Cycling's new Helix road shoe has a new cable closure system that wraps around the shoe, through the carbon chassis and back around the other side of the upper. The system uses a single BOA dial for closure and adjustment. 

"The system, in combination with an overlapping upper, allows for more adjustment and volume control. The continuous wiring spreads the load for a secure hold without localized pressure points," the company said.

"The cable integration system has allowed us to keep the weight low, while adding even more to the concept of custom fit. Working with BOA and taking the wire completely around the shoe, we are able to ultimately fine-tune the fit and control the volume adjustment."

The Helix also features Bont's unidirectional monocoque carbon sole, a TPU ventilated toe protector, and a lightweight Durolite upper and tongue. The upper is designed to be anti-stretch so the fit does not change over time. The Helix, like other Bont Cycling shoes, can be heat molded in a conventional oven. 

The new 230-gram (size 42) Helix is available now and is being officially launched to the public at the Sea Otter Classic next month. It retails for $399 and comes in four colors. 

Bont is distributed in the U.S. through Mc2 Sports Specialists and Quality Bicycle Products. More information at
