Vaypor

Buckle In and Zip Up for a more Aerodynamic Ride!

If you want the best speed skating boot that money can buy, look no further than the Vaypor. Tested by the world's best skaters and designed by Mr. Inze Bont. This version is the standard version which integrates both the buckle lace cover and YKK zipper lace cover.

Durolite Outer Skin

As the name suggests, durolite is an extremely durable and lightweight material that can withstand minor crashes without scratching. It comes in a wide variety of colors and three types of finishes; matte, shiny, and metallic. We are continually adding new colors to the mix with white and black being our only constant colors in stock. All printing will be black apart from any black boots which will have white printing. Combined with a durolight liner the Vaypor is also vegan friendly.

Semi Custom

The Vaypor has no additional fees for altering the colors. You can select the colors that you want and other semi custom options from this web page.

Other semi custom options that you can select for no additional fee include:

  • Wide or narrow fit.
  • One foot longer than the other (eg. you can order a size 7 right foot and a size 8 left foot).
  • Skinny ankles (we cut the trim where the eyelets are punched back so you have more room to tighten your boots).
  • Add or remove carbon for more or less flex (The boot is already extremely stiff and adding more carbon may possibly mean that you can not pull your laces tight because the boot is so stiff).

Design

The Vaypor has always been the design trend setter in the inline boot market. From chrome, to 3D to ultra shiny microfibers, and the use of high frequency printing, the Vaypor continues to raise the bar in the use of cutting edge materials and design. The ultra exotic durolite material makes the boot stand out from across the rink or park, and the matte dry carbon base, now with anti-split sanding effect, makes the outer skin glow in contrast. Overall, we have gone for a streamlined look for this year's Vaypor with a buckle lace cover for extra support and YKK zipper lace cover to provide an aerodynamic advantage. The design is sleek and modern and allows you to mix and match colors to create a unique eye-catching boot.

Stitching

The Vaypor is stitched by an expert sewer who has no other role apart from stitching. Unlike most boots on the market that use cosmetic stitching, the stitching on Bont boots actually serves a specific purpose and stitches the outer skin to the boot itself. This results in less stretch and a longer lasting boot.

Ventilation

Cycling scientists have proven that cooler feet can boost performance. The new Vaypor incorporates ventilation on the lace covers, tongue and protective bumper to help circulation air and cool your feet.

Matte Dry Carbon Base

The base of the boot has an attractive matte dry carbon look now with anti-slip sanding effect at the mounting slots.

Matte Dry Carbon Base

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 and is stitched to the outer skin and bonded to the liner. As a result it can never move or be removed, so it becomes part of the boot’s 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 is made by hand by sandwiching cross weave and uni-directional carbon fiber embedded with a epoxy thermo setting resin. The fibers are then hand laid in the matrix according to the strain they will have to bear. Bont is the only inline skate company to use uni-directional carbon making our boots lighter and stronger than our competitors.

Last Design

A last is a plastic replica of a foot that the boot is built around. At Bont, we have been perfecting our lasts since 1975 and the process is ongoing. Unlike the standard shoe last many companies use, we put extra effort into creating and developing our lasts so that they fit right out of the box.

Padding

The Vaypor is designed for high class athletes, so the padding used is thin, dense and a little unforgiving. However, this makes for a super light and responsive skate. The closed cell memory foam used also does not retain water. If you are after a more comfortable ride, please select one of our softer padding options.

Team Testing

Our Pro Team skaters are some of the best in the World and love to give us constant feedback. From the little things like the placement of the buckle to trialing the latest materials, they are helping Bont create products that not only look good but perform at the elite level.

Eyelets

Small eyelets put pressure on a very small area and can cause pain. Bont eyelets have a large head which spreads the pressure over a larger area to help overcome any discomfort.

Eyelets

Tongue

The Vaypor's tongue has a number of features. It is heat moldable so it can be heated in the oven and molded to your foot but it will also mold to your foot with the temperature from your own body heat. It has ventilation to let hot air out of the boot, a handy velcro placeholder to stop your tongue from moving and foam that is thin and light yet still protects your foot from the laces.

Tongue

TPU Toe Protector

The toe protector not only protects the front of your boot from impact but it also has ventilation which keeps your feet cool.

The ultra exotic durolite material makes the boot stand out from across the rink or park, and the matte dry carbon base, now with anti-split sanding effect, makes the outer skin glow in contrast. For 2018, we are introducing three versions of the Vaypor. This version sees us incorporate a BOA closure system with top two eyelets and top strap with the YKK zipper lace cover. Like the other versions, the design is sleek and modern and allows you to mix and match colors to create a unique eye-catching boot.

BOA System

The Boa System is custom built for each unique product and use case, they all contain three integral parts: a micro-adjustable dial, super-strong lightweight laces, and low friction lace guides. Each configuration is engineered to optimize fit and provide precision, adaptability, and control. With instant, single-handed fine tuning as precise as 1mm, you can easily adjust for comfort or a more targeted performance without ever losing focus. And once dialed in, The Boa System stays that way. On the the track, Boa gives you a secure fit that makes it easy to get your gear on and off quickly no matter the conditions.
