Bont is an Australian company created in 1975 by Inze and Sara Bont. The business was born out of the couple’s interest in ice speed skating. At the time, ice skates used leather uppers that were too supple for Inze’s liking. He started experimenting with fibreglass for increasing support around the ankle of the boot and found it improved his performance. Soon he had many requests for fibreglass boots from his friends and it was enough to inspire a small business.

Once established, Bont Skates grew to the point where Inze was making up to 200 pairs of boots a week. He pioneered the use of cutting edge materials such as Kevlar, Velcro, neoprene, carbon fibre and heat-moldable thermoplastics during the ‘80s and ‘90s. His designs were quickly translated for roller-skating and inline-skating, and the company became the world’s largest producer of handmade skating boots.

Bont started working on a cycling shoe in 2007, adopting Inze’s one-piece construction method and heat-moldable carbon fibre for the outsole. Olympic athletes played a key role in the product’s development and once released, the A1 was immediately noticed for the stiffness of its sole. There was also the novelty of a heat-moldable shoe.

Bont’s range of cycling shoes has grown considerably since 2007 under the direction of Sydney-based CEO Steven Nemeth. There are now shoes for road, track, off-road, and triathlon in its current catalog. Bont also has an extensive  custom shoe program that allows customization of the shoe’s appearance as well as its fit.

The fee covers the cost of the molding and ordering process for fully custom cycling shoes.
