When designing the Bont Sub-8 Tri shoe, Bont did their research. They asked some of the world's top triathletes what they wanted in a shoe. Primarily they wanted a shoe that was fast in transition, that was easy to get on quickly. So, coupled with Bont's super stiff base, they added a 2 part tongue that allows the shoe to open all the way up and then added a built in shoe horn. The shoe horn has a large loop that is easy to grab and you can put the sub-8 on with just one finger. The shoe closes with a single Velcro closing that criss-crosses the shoe. The heel of the shoe is protected with a heel protector. This shoe is made of 100% carbon fibre and is extremely light weight, coming in at just 225 grams, and has a super slim stack height of 3.6mm. Air is pumped into the shoe via the air gills in the arch of shoe as well as through 40 air vents. The base of the shoe has a grid which makes lining up your cleats a synch.
The Bont cycling shoes are the most heat moldable shoe on the market today. To mold your shoes, remove any cleats, laces or cleat mounting screws and innersole before molding. Failure to remove the innersole can result in it becoming deformed by the heat. Pre heat the oven to 70C/160F. Place the shoe in the oven for 20 minutes. Higher temperatures will void your warranty and may damage your boot. Caution: Do not place your feet in the hot shoes or you may burn your feet. Let them cool a little and test the shoe temperature with your hand before placing your feet in the shoes. Tighten the straps and allow to cool. If you have any lumps or bunions on your feet or if there are any areas causing discomfort, while the shoe is hot you can use the round end of a screwdriver to press out any part of the boot. You can heat mold the shoes as many times as you like.
