Nov 5, 2015 – There is nothing like riding fast, period. That is all Bont had in mind when it designed the fastest and first-ever time-trial-specific cycling shoe.
The space-age-looking shoe is extremely aerodynamic, so much so that it was banned by cycling’s governing body, the UCI, for being too fast. For the pro, this is a huge bummer, but for the serious enthusiast and weekend warrior, this is a whole lot of ammunition.
But don’t look past the rest of the options, which include anti-stretch material, biomechanical design, memory foam, a full-carbon sole and heat molding.
There’s no doubt that the Bont Chrono can deliver you to a solo victory.
