Established in 1975 in Sydney, Bont makes some pretty unique cycling shoes.
Bont’s method of producing shoes by hand inside out is a process that is far more skill intensive, time consuming and thus resulting in far greater costs than the current mainstream shoe construction methods, but one that allows the Bont range of cycling shoes to lead the market in performance. The Bont production line has been engineered by founder Inze Bont to allow for our monocoque shoes to be hand made in the most time efficient manner possible. This is a process which continues to be developed and refined. Inadequate processes such as using generic vacuum boxes for curing the carbon have been replaced by methods such as pressure wrapping which provides four atmospheres of pressure rather than the traditional one atmosphere from vacuum forming. Bont’s drive for design innovation is matched by its innovation in manufacturing processes.
Mega Bike has just become the Adelaide Bont dealer.
