The world’s first time trial-specific shoe, the Bont Cycling Crono MK2 is the second generation designed to go even faster than its predecessor – the original deemed illegal by UCI for use in competition and sanctioned events because it was too fast! The Crono MK2 represents the pinnacle of Bont Cycling's performance-based lineup and is designed for pure unadulterated speed.
Aerodynamic testing has always been about the relationship between rider and machine but at Bont Cycling, the thought of covering shoes with a simple bootie or 'aero' sock felt like a solution to a challenge that demanded a better answer.
The Crono MK2 takes one of the fastest moving objects on the bike – your feet – and transforms it into one of the most effective air-slicing pieces of equipment you can acquire without stepping into a wind tunnel. Of course, the Crono MK2 is about far more than just aerodynamics and is backed by Bont Cycling's renowned power-transfer platform and pure anatomical design. The result is a product that utilizes more than 40 years of high-performance shoe manufacturing, feedback from the sport's very best athletes across every major discipline and blends it into one pair of seriously fast cycling shoes.
Every single element of the Crono MK2 has been built with aerodynamic gains in mind. From the revised toe box through to lace cover, heel cup, handmade 100% carbon fiber monocoque construction sole and even the heel guard, nothing has been left to chance. Finishing the package is our industry-leading 3.6mm stack height, proprietary thermo-moldable resin chassis and all while keeping the weight of each shoe under 300 grams.

NEW SIZING METHOD
To find your Bont Cycling shoe size, download and print our all-new sizing page in A4 and follow the instructions exactly as listed. Mark with a straight edge your longest toe and widest part of your foot. Double check the length and width with a ruler to confirm your measurements. Be advised, this is a newly developed sizing page so please send any feedback to our team by clicking the red 'speech bubble' in the corner of the page.
To find your size, place a piece of paper on a flat surface and place it directly up against a wall. Stand on the paper and ensure you have a 1mm gap between your heel and the wall. Plant your foot firmly on the ground and slowly roll your weight forward and onto the forefoot. For the most effective longest toe measurement, your heel should lift off the ground slight. Look down and take the measurement from the wall edge of the paper to your longest toe. Record the length. With your foot still in place, mark the widest points of the inner and outer edges of your feet. Measure the width across the widest part of your foot and record the number in millimeters. Repeat this step for both feet.
Once the measurements have been taken, use the Foot Length Range on the size chart to find your size. The Last Length measurements shown on the chart are the exact length of the last that we use to build the shoes. This correlates to the precise internal measurement of the shoe.
Following selection of your size in EU or USA, move downward to select the most appropriate width. We recommend adding 1mm to find the most appropriate width. For example, you are looking at a Vaypor S and have determined your best shoe size is 45 and your feet measure 105mm (left) and 107mm (right) wide, with an additional 1mm added, you would still fit within the Standard Range. If your feet measure wide than 109/110mm (size 45/10.5) you should consider Wide fit.
