I recently bought a pair of 42 Vaypors in white directly from Bont.. They feel really tight, especially around the toe piece. I have molded them but maybe need to do it again. I havent ridden in them yet due to the wet weather in the UK but my main problem is that I use Looks Keo blades and the cleat screws poke all the way through the sole. Is that right? It doesnt feel uncomfortable when I put them on but I can imagine it will when I put the power down into a long ride.

Any thoughts guys?

Noticed the CTT models are selling for less then half price of the Vapors on line. Do you think the build quality between the CTT and Vapors are that drastic that they are going for less then half the cost of Vapors?

After reading all the positive comments towards the Bonts I was considering ordering a pair of the CTT but after reading hornedfrog comments I may reconsider.

Is there anyone riding the CTT that has any more info regarding the difference?

Thanks,

I want to buy Bont A1 speedplay shoes in the net shops.
Please help with right size. Usually wear SIDI - 46, Lake - 46(12US), run shoes Nike, Mizuno (10,5UK-11.5US) They all fit me fine.
P.S. I'm stopped from purchase only by that CRC and Wiggle have stopped to trade them. At forum RBR there are only negative responses about quality. All became possible better in new model maybe.


Bont's website shows you how to size yourself in their shoes. It involves measuring a few different parameters, and not in comparison to others shoes.

You have to use shorter screws -- the normal screws are for the common sole thickness.

Oh right. I was told I had the shortest screws available. I will hunt down shorter screws then, thanks. :noidea:

I simply cut the screws because I couldn't find any matching size locally. That took some time but at least it gave me the exact length I needed.

For look pedals, you can use speedplay screws. They are shorter. That is what I use for the same problem. :D :thumbup:

i found the CCT 1 lower cut and not as forming at the heel as my Vaypors. Felt like I was losing some of the stiff direct transfer due to these changes. IMHO the CCT is 75% of the Vaypor performance

Biplrsaba. That seem like a fair opinion. Appreciate the feed back. I think I may wait and look at ordering a pair of Vapors.

Does anyone have experience heat molding a speedplay-specific Bont shoe? I am wondering if there are any special instructions as the base is not the same shape (a sharper angle at the cleat area). Thanks.

Interesting shoes, especially considering the price.

The shape seems a bit more rounded than the Vaypors, or is it the photo angle?

Hi guys,

Having a sizing dilemma. I went to Bont's website to use the fit calculator, I plugged in my measurements and it said I'd be a size 43. Problem is, I've been a size 45 in everything, size 45 Sidi is a tad too small and gives me hotspots. Should I go with the calculator or should I just order the 45s?

Stefano
