New Bont Vaypor+ Cycling Shoe Updates Fit, Materials
The new Bont Vaypor+ gets an entirely new unidirectional monocoque carbon fiber base, Durolite synthetic uppers and new insoles and fit parameters.
Bont’s shoes are all handmade, building layer upon layer to form a true “monocoque” shoe with the carbon fiber outsole bonded directly to the insole, trapping the liner and other elements into a single unit. The outsole uses UD fibers covered with a 3K woven layer, and heel and toe rubber bumpers are replaceable.
The upper is heat moldable, and the insoles use a new memory foam footbed for a fit that can be customized beyond their already more anatomically correct shape. The other new feature is Atop’s Kevlar-cabled micro-dial closure, which replaces the ratchet buckle and Velcro straps of the other road shoes. This gives it a much sleeker appearance and likely sheds a few grams.
