BONT shoes are known for their excellent fit and high end performance. What they’re not necessarily known for is their affordability. But in order to offer their shoes to a wider audience, their new Riot Buckle is dropping their entry level pricing to a new low.

While the current Riot+ utilizes a single Boa dial and velcro strap, the Riot is able to lower the price thanks to the addition of a simple micro-adjustable buckle instead of the Boa.

Underneath, a fiberglass sole includes a 3 hole Look/Shimano mounting pattern and replaceable sole guards. Like their more pricey shoes, the Riot still uses a tub style construction with an anatomical heel cup.

In spite of the lower cost, the shoes still feature a fully heat moldable chassis with an epoxy thermoset fiberglass material. The upper is a microfiber material meant to resist stretching, with perforations and micro mesh for venting.

Love that they’re making affordable shoes now. I could never understand spending $400 . I have my eye on the Riot MTB+.
