Introducing the Bont Riot MTB , the world’s first carbon composite heat moldable entry level MTB shoe.

The Riot MTB combines Bont's pro series technical features including our power transfer platform for greater efficiency will ascending, replaceable sole guards, anatomical shaping and competition grade materials to create the most technically advanced entry level MTB shoe.


Microfiber Upper Is Utilised:

  • Microfiber upper is used to provide the Bont Riot with a strong outer layer to withstand the rigours of everyday cycling whilst mesh inserts assist with the breathability of the cycling shoes.

Carbon Composite Construction:

  • The carbon composite construction of the Riot has been specifically designed to ensure maximum performance at low weight. The fibreglass tub style construction of the chassis has been strengthened with the inclusion of carbon across high stress areas. The carbon has been sandwiched between layers of the fibreglass to maximise strength.

Retention System:

  • Z form velcro and micro adjustable buckle are utilized in conjunction with Bont's anatomical design to ensure a secure fit.


  • The Bont Riot MTB is highly ventilated via integrated top mesh panels and ventilation holes throughout the side microfiber panels.

Grip Plate:

  • Protective replaceable grip plate with spike mounts in toe section.

Last Design:

  • A last is a replica of a foot that the cycling shoe is built around. Last makers do not make cycling shoe lasts, they only make shoe lasts so perfecting a cycling shoe last requires a great deal of expertise in functional biomechanics and ongoing research. At Bont, we have been perfecting our performance footwear lasts since 1975 and the process is ongoing. We believe we place more importance and thus place more effort into our last than any other cycling shoe brand and it is the reason that Bont cycling shoes continue to be a leader in providing the most functional and correct anatomical support to cyclists than any other brand on the market. Our motto in terms of cycling shoe fit is simple, "We make shoes for cycling, not walking."

Heat Moulding:

  • Bont cycling shoe is the most heat moldable shoes available. Bont's proprietary resin has been developed and perfected over 36 years to be an extremely stiff resin that becomes pliable at relatively low temperatures. Unlike other shoes which are moldable only in select locations, all Bont cycling shoes are able to be molded over the entire chasis providing cyclist not only with the most anatomically designed cycling shoe on the market today, but also with the ability to fine tune the fit of the entire shoe to give a customised fit.

Medial Longitudinal Arch Support:

  • Structural medial longitudinal arch support is provided in all models to stop over pronation of feet.
  • Over pronation is one of the main contributors to incorrect tracking of knees during a cyclists pedaling phase due to internal rotation of tibia and femur. This can result in knee injuries.
  • In addition, the rotation of tibia/femur can cause the pelvis to tilt resulting in lower back strain.

Anatomical Forefoot Shape:

  • Conventional cycling shoes offer a “dress shoe” type shaping. Although highly aesthetic this will cause the toes along with the metatarsals to be overly constricted, compressing the nerves between the metatarsals which often results in the common "hot foot" sensation.
  • Bont cycling shoes anatomical shaping allows the foot to function in its most efficient and anatomically correct position. The foot is supported in its endeavour to relax through the metatarsal joints allowing the pedalling force to be spread across the greatest possible surface area.

Anatomical Heel Cup:

  • The anatomical heel cup shaping of Bont cycling shoes provides increased stability during the pull through stage of pedaling stroke and up stroke. This stabilization is achieved without any mechanical operation or over tightening of straps/laces allowing for increased comfort and blood circulation.

Lateral Forefoot Support:

  • Bont’s lateral forefoot support ensures neutral positioning of the forefoot and alleviates common issues associated with over pronation and supination. These issues often result in incorrect tracking of knees causing injuries along with hip and lower back pain.

General information about our shipping

Quite light weight. They seem well built. The soles have good traction on turf. Haven't had them on any real muck. For the price, unbeatable!
The sizing chart is accurate - my feet are 285mm long and a 46 fitted perfectly - very stiff shoe, awesome at the sale price!
Early days but really impressed. Super super stiff, maybe even stiffer than my Fizik road shoes, I think the way the sole wraps around a bit of your foot works to increase the way the power is put down through the pedals. Out the box they felt a bit snug but are bedding in nicely. Build quality is excellent as expected. They are a full on race shoe though, I'd bought them for use with my road /cx bike and they have markedly changed the ride compared to the Giro Privateers I had been using previously, but I have lost a little bit of practicality, walking is not as easy, saying that I should be pedaling not walking anyway! I'd buy another pair and at this price, definitely a bargain.
