The World’s First Time Trial Specific Shoe.

Crono:

For too long the research has ignored the role which shoes play in the search for precious seconds come race day. Not only is the efficiency of power transfer critical in ensuring that podium finish, but the aerodynamics of the shoe also play a critical part. After all, your feet are the fastest moving part of a bike.

The technology used in this shoe pushes every known boundary in terms of manufacturing processes and aerodynamics, setting a new benchmark for others to follow.

Every single part of this shoe has been designed with aerodynamics in mind. Each part has been designed to increase the aerodynamic properties of the shoe through each part of the pedal stroke, placing special emphasis on the part of the pedal stroke where the shoe is moving the fastest.

As with the top of the range A-One road shoe, the Bont crono is a handmade 100% carbon monocoque construction built for pure speed. To further enhance the rider’s performance, Bont have built this shoe with Bont’s extremely low stack height of 3.6mm. Bont’s proprietary thermo moldable resin to allow customization has also been applied, which maintains Bont’s extremely high standards in shoe stiffness for power transfer all whilst keeping the weight of each shoe under 300 grams.

Bont cycling shoes are the most heat mouldable shoes available on the market. 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 mouldable only in select locations, all Bont cycling shoes are able to be moulded over the entire chassis providing cyclists 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. Please view the Video tab above for a guide on how to heat mould your Bont shoes at home.

The UCI has recently informed Bont that it is officially banning the "Crono" from competitions based on the view that the design of the Crono contradicts the UCI's article 1.3.033 which stipulates:

“It is forbidden to wear non-essential items of clothing or items designed to influence the performances of a rider such as reducing air resistance or modifying the body of the rider (compression, stretching, support).

Items of clothing or equipment may be considered essential where weather conditions make them appropriate for the safety or the health of the rider. In this case, the nature and texture of the clothing or equipment must be clearly and solely justified by the need to protect the rider from bad weather conditions. Discretion in this respect is left to the race commissaires.

Equipment (helmets, shoes, jerseys, shorts, etc.) worn by the rider may not be adapted to serve any other purpose apart from that of clothing or safety by the addition or incorporation of mechanical or electronic systems which are not approved as technical innovations under article 1.3.004.”
