Between the outer skin and the liner we add a material that is proprietary to Bont to stop the boot from stretching over time. This material has similar strength characteristics to Kevlar. This material is stitched to the outer skin and bonded to the liner so it can never move or be removed, it becomes part of the boots structure. This layer is the reason that Bont boots do not stretch out as much as other brands of boots over time.
We source our carbon exclusively from the world’s #1 carbon manufacturer, Toray of Japan. The base of the Z is made by hand by sandwiching cross weave carbon and uni-directional carbon fiber which is embedded with epoxy thermo setting resin. The fibers are hand laid in the matrix according to the strain they will have to bear.
A last is a plastic replica of a foot that the boot is built around. Last makers do not make skate lasts, they only make shoe lasts so perfecting a speed skating last is not an easy prospect. At Bont, we have been perfecting our lasts since 1975 and the process is ongoing. We feel that we put more effort into our last than any other skating brand and it is the reason that Bont boots fit more skaters than any other brand on the market.
