Bont engineered the 3PF with our legendary 3 point system which totally eliminates all base boot flex. The curved carbon boot base produces the stiffest sole on the market and guarantees that none of your energy gets absorbed by the boot. The patented 3 point design is brought together with the best materials and the most advanced inline frame computer stress test simulations on earth.
Bont employs the most advanced computer aided frame stress testing on the market. This ensures that every part of the frame is strong enough to withstand month after month of skating without suffering metal fatigue which is a popular cause of frame breakage. The design was then tested in our 3D simulator which tests the frames strengths and weaknesses in a real skating simulation. The design was tweaked and re-tested. The 3PF design went through over 200 days of virtual testing and tweaking before the first frame was crafted.
Bont is all about challenging the industry’s concept of what an inline frame should look like. We set out on this project to create an object of desire while servicing the needs of professional athletes. By exploring recent developments in CAD/CAM engineering, we were able to create an extremely complicated concept that pushed the boundaries of modern design and created something truly exciting.
Many skaters believe that a stiffer frame is better, however, that is not the case. A frame needs a slight amount of flex in various areas in order to help you turn and to stop the frame skipping at the end of the push. A slight amount of flex near the wheels adds grip at the end of your push. The 3PF frame as been engineered with just the right amount of flex.
7075 is an Aerospace aluminum alloy. It is the premier choice for aerospace applications requiring the best combination of strength, stress corrosion cracking resistance and toughness. 7050 exhibits better toughness/corrosion resistance characteristics than 7075. T6 - means that the 3PF frame has been solution heat treated and then artificially aged. This tempering process greatly increases the hardness of the metal. The extrusion must be held in a special jig while it is tempered to stop it from twisting.
Speed skates are a high performance apparatus so it is not always easy to have one size chart that will please everyone because some skaters like their skates tighter than others. So, what Bont has done is provide you with the exact last sizes so you can use it to determine your Bont size. As a basic rule, most skaters like their boots to be 3-4mm longer than the last. This allows for your feet to grow in length when the boots are tightened. If you like your boots super tight, then just add 1-2mm but be warned, your toes will touch the end and possibly be scrunched.
Bont boots comes in various width for each size. It makes it easy to determine if you have wide, standard or narrow feet. For example, a size 4 boot will fit a 86 - 90mm wide foot. If you have a 91mm wide foot, then you would probably be better off with a wide boot.
To find your size, place a tape measure on a flat surface up against a wall. Stand on the tape measure with your heal against the wall. Look down and take the measurement from your longest toe. Then use the MM scale on the size chart to find your size.
Here are some examples of mm sizes for speed skates and the boot size that Bont recommends (www.bont.com.):
253mm + 4mm you should order size 6.5
273mm + 4mm you should order size 9
