Semi Race

The comfort of a trainer with the performance of a speed skate

The Semi-Race is aimed at skaters who want the comfort of a trainer with the performance of a speed skate. The skate uses Bonts’ famous one piece construction with a carbon composite base. It comes with 6mm padding, and a thicker EVA foot bed. The boot comes with a heat moldable tongue and incorporates our super mold technology making it extremely heat moldable. The tongue is injection molded heat moldable EVA like the foot bed. The boot is a lot stiffer than other skates in the Trainer market and the stiffness comes from within, so there is no need for an external brace to give the boot stiffness. This gives the skate a lot higher performance than other similar types of skates.

Anti Stretch

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.

Carbon Fiber

We source our carbon exclusively from the world's #1 carbon manufacturer, Toray of Japan. The base of the Vaypor 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.

Last Design

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.

Padding

The Semi-race is designed for high class athletes so the padding used is a thin, dense padding that is quite unforgiving. The padding is harder than our previous generations of Semi-race and it is also lighter. Like all Bont padding, we use a closed cell memory foam that will not retain water. If you are after a more comfortable ride, please select one of our softer padding options.

Heat Moulding

Bont inline boot is the most heat moldable shoes available. Bont's proprietary resin has been developed and perfected over 36 years to be an extremely stiff resin that becomes pliable at relatively low temperatures. Unlike other shoes which are moldable only in select locations, all Bont inline boots are able to be molded over the entire chasis providing cyclist not only with the most anatomically designed cycling shoe on the market today, but also with the ability to fine tune the fit of the entire shoe to give a customised fit.
