The Vaypor S road cycling shoe is the flagship in the Bont range offering low weight, comfort and speed. It is aimed at the performance-focused rider and racer. Like all Bont shoes, they are packed with tech. The level of support and performance you get with them is unmatched.
Carbon Monocoque construction:
Like the Vaypor +, the Vaypor S is a true carbon monocoque constructed by hand from 100% carbon fibre – no fibreglass and no composite material. The upper is made from a lightweight synthetic material called Durolite and as the name suggests has been chosen for its light weight and durability!
The closure is similar to that of the original Vaypor in that it uses a single diagonal lower strap to provide excellent hold, this is tightened with dual Boa IP1 dial mechanisms which use Nylon coated Kevlar wires to evenly distribute the retention forces across the top of the foot.
A second Boa closure secures the upper part of the shoe in an asymmetric fashion designed to better spread closure forces and offer a more complete wrap from the heel. The even distribution of the retention forces results in an extremely secure but comfortable fit.
Direct Power transfer:
The Vaypor S has an extremely low stack height getting your foot closer to the pedal for direct power transfer and there is no discernible flex in the sole, so your feet don’t roll around over the pedal. We have found that the foot is far better supported than a lot of other similarly priced shoes and as such tends to cause fewer problems with Hot-spots or knee pain, particularly over longer distances. This new version uses a new carbon lay-up which is unidirectional for further weight reductions over the earlier models.
Despite this stiffness, they are remarkably comfortable thanks to the sensible shape of the Last and the relatively open toe-box. The ability to repeatedly mould the shoe and ‘work-out’ (with the blunt end of a screwdriver) any areas that cause pressure or discomfort means that you will be able to perfect the fit if you don’t get it right straight away or if your feet change.
Anti-Stretch structural support:
The Vaypor S uses an Anti-Stretch material between the outer skin and the liner which adds structural support to the foot and prolongs the life of the shoe giving better hold over time. Like all Bont cycling shoes, there is plenty of Medial Longitudinal Arch support which reduces over-pronation and is key to good leg and knee alignment through the pedal stroke.
It is really important to stress here that most other manufacturers offer you a heat-mouldable sole, what BONT offer is a heat-mouldable CHASSIS so you are getting a far more tailored fit. Not only that but at a fraction of the price of many other heat-mouldable shoes out there these represent real value for money and are ideal for the cyclist looking to improve and compete. They come complete with a shoe bag to keep them in top condition.
