When designing the sub-8 shoe, we did our research. We asked some of the world's top triathletes what they wanted in a shoe. Primarily they wanted a shoe that was fast in transition and that was easy to get on quickly. This shoe is made of 100% carbon fiber 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.
Getting the right fit is essential for comfort and performance. You have heard terms like 'custom fit' but what do they mean? Most manufacturers define custom fit as a shoe with a small amount of moldability in the upper. Some also have a very small degree of heat moldability in the base. When we say this shoe is heat moldable, we really mean it. You can mold the sub-9 in any home oven and the amount of moldability is outrageous. If a shoe doesn't fit properly, you can't train or race at your optimum.
The sub-9 has a two piece tongue that opens the shoe right up making it very easy for you to slip your foot in for a fast transition. Add to that, Bonts' patent pending built in shoe horn lets you put your shoe on with just one finger. This shoe also has a shoe protector for the heel which protects the shoe during the transition.
The Sub-9 is available in Silver Shiny Microfiber.
If you think all triathlon shoes are the same, it's time you take a look at the Bont Sub-10. This shoe offers you the stiffness of a $350 shoe with full heat moldability, at a fraction of the cost. The secret is in Bonts' unique hand layup with pressure wrap. We hand lay the fiberglass without any injection molding what-so-ever. Each strip of fiberglass is laid in the shape of a cross before being painted with resin. The shoe is then baked and once set, we are left with an extremely stiff, light weight, fully moldable shoe.
This shoe offers and extremely thin stack height of just 4.8mm and is available with a matt microfiber upper.
