Alpha

Bont’s first ever rec skate

The Alpha is a carbon composite boot that is fully heat moldable and incorporates our Super Mold Technology which makes it the most heat moldable rec skate on the market. The foot bed and tongue are also moldable.

The frame is an extruded 6000 series Aluminum S-frame with 1 piece axles that are machined, not punched. The aluminum spacers are also machined. Frame graphics use a heat print that has a UV scratch proof coating.

The wheels are a choice of XTR 90mm Racing wheels or 84mm wheel. The bearings are ABEC 7 racing bearings with the 90mm skates and ABEC 5 with the 80 and 84mm.

Anti Stretch

Between the outer skin and the liner we add a material that is proprietary to Bont to stop the inline shoe from stretching over time. This material has similar strength characteristics to Kevlar. The 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 inline shoes structure. This layer assits in pedalling efficiency by maintaining a supportive structure over the top of the foot in the upward part of the pedal stroke.

Last Design

A last is a replica of a foot that the inline shoe is built around. Last makers do not make inline shoe lasts, they only make shoe lasts so perfecting a inline shoe last requires a great deal of expertise in functional biomechanics and ongoing research. At Bont, we have been perfecting our performance footwear lasts since 1975 and the process is ongoing. We believe we place more importance and thus place more effort into our last than any other inline shoe brand and it is the reason that Bont inline shoes continue to be a leader in providing the most functional and correct anatomical support to cyclists than any other brand on the market. Our motto in terms of inline shoe fit is simple, "We make shoes for inline, not walking."

Padding

The Alpha utilises closed cell memory foam that will not retain water assisting in maintaining a lighter shoe during wet conditions as well as ensuring sweat which can begin to break down the durability of the shoe is not absorbed.

Heat Moulding

Bont skates are the most heat moldable skates on the market. Our resin is developed in house and has been perfected over 36 years to be an extremely stiff resin that becomes pliable at relatively low temperatures. You may have tried heat molding other brands of boots and found that you needed to increase the temperature to try to get it to mold. That is not the case with your Bont boots and we urge you to start with low temperatures.
