Australian cycling footwear company Bont are set to release additional versions of their latest Vaypor road model.

The new Vaypor WCE (World Champion Edition) honors Thor Hushovd's world championship win last October in Geelong, Australia with rainbow stripes on the forward strap and sides plus a Norwegian flag on the heel. It's otherwise identical to the standard Vaypor and will cost US$389.

Also new for 2011 is a Vaypor Premium range, featuring laminated silver fiberglass fibers integrated into the microfiber uppers. Bont will offer the Premium models in black microfiber with silver straps or white microfiber with silver straps for US$389, or full silver fiberglass uppers for US$425.

Subbing in the glass fiber construction will save a bit of weight, though Bont's Steven Nemeth admits the difference will be "very small" and the changes amount mostly to an aesthetic upgrade. According to Nemeth, the overall fit and feel of the Premium models will be very similar to the standard Vaypor.

The top-end vaypor premium variant will use silver glass fibers throughout the upper for a unique look:
