The BNT is Bont’s simple and classical inline speed skate boot. The lines are clean and uncomplicated.
The base of the boot uses 100% carbon fiber with Bont’s famous epoxy resin that is heat moldable. The padding is neoprene which is a closed-cell foam that does not absorb water. This speed skating boot is ultra-lightweight as it has no bumpers or thermoplastic or zippers. The carbon base of the boot has a matte finish that is lighter than the usual gloss finish found on most inline speed skates.
The outer skin is made from Durolite which is usually reserved for the Bont Vaypor and the liner is Suede-L which feels great with or without socks on.
The mounting blocks are made of aluminum with a hardened steel nut. Did you know that Bont has never received a single skate returned due to mounting block issues? Our system is foolproof. The mounting screws have Loctite to stop them from coming undone during a race.
The boots tongue has ventilation to keep your feet cool and also velcro to hold it in place. The tongue padding is comfortable and stops lace bite. The laces are waxed and have very little stretch.
The boot is built on a last that has a tighter heel than normal to hold your foot as tight as possible and give a feel as close to custom as possible. This boot is designed for professional racers so the BNT inline boot is very responsive and not suitable for skaters who want a very padded boot.
