Coming from Bont for 2012 is a new unparalleled road cycling shoe called Zero. This handmade cycling shoe is tailored with Bont’s advanced carbon layup techniques to effectively lessen the weight of the shoes but still keeping its structural quality and performance.

Aptly called Zero, this road shoe has virtually nothing when it comes to downsides. It features a 100% carbon monocoque chassis material, which comes with a laminated silver fiberglass upper. While very stiff, the Epoxy Thermoset resin of the shoes becomes flexible when temperatures are low.
