Innersole InstructionsUpdated 24 days ago

The new range of Vaypor Series and Riot Series innersoles are designed to replace your currently fitted innersoles. Simply remove your existing innersoles and replace with your new Vaypor or Riot Series innersoles. Both Series' innersoles are suitable for use across the entire Bont Cycling model range and will fit all sizes and widths including double wide. 

If your Vaypor Series innersoles came with metatarsal pads, these can be fitted to the innersoles in the location guides in the middle of the forefoot or as per your particular needs. Be advised installation of the metatarsal dome/pad is optional and should be considered depending on your specific foot requirements. Read more about metatarsal domes below via the Cobra9 website.

To Met Dome or Not to Met Dome. That is the question.

Met Dome Tips

  • Ride with your innersoles a few times prior to installing the metatarsal domes. The Vaypor Series innersoles are designed with structural arch support thanks to the carbon core and we find that riders moving across to our innersoles do not always need them, even if they have used them in the past with other branded innersoles.
  • If a dome is required, peel away a third or half (maximum) of the dome backing, starting at the closest edge. Fold the backing under the dome and leave the remainder unstuck for the trial period. The adhesive chosen for the met domes has been designed to outlast water, heat, sand and socks so they really are intended to stay put! That said, moving the domes on the EVA covers can be tricky and so getting the position correct prior to complete commitment is highly advised. The adhesive is strong enough that just a small amount of backing removal should allow you to test them for a ride or two and reposition if required.
  • Once you are confident, peel the back completely away and your set. If you want to move it, then unsticking a small amount of the backing shouldn't prove difficult.

Note: Remove innersoles prior to heat molding. Failure to remove your innersoles prior to heat molding can lead to damage of your innersoles and shoes. Place innersoles back into shoes once they have been removed from the oven so you can complete the process with your feet inside the warm shoes.
