Bont engineered the 3PF with our legendary 3 point system which totally eliminates all base boot flex. The curved carbon boot base produces the stiffest sole on the market and guarantees that none of your energy gets absorbed by the boot. The patented 3 point design is brought together with the best materials and the most advanced inline frame computer stress test simulations on earth.

Bont employs the most advanced computer aided frame stress testing on the market. This ensures that every part of the frame is strong enough to withstand month after month of skating without suffering metal fatigue which is a popular cause of frame breakage. The design was then tested in our 3D simulator which tests the frames strengths and weaknesses in a real skating simulation. The design was tweaked and re-tested. The 3PF design went through over 200 days of virtual testing and tweaking before the first frame was crafted.
Bont is all about challenging the industry’s concept of what an inline frame should look like. We set out on this project to create an object of desire while servicing the needs of professional athletes. By exploring recent developments in CAD/CAM engineering, we were able to create an extremely complicated concept that pushed the boundaries of modern design and created something truly exciting.
Many skaters believe that a stiffer frame is better, however, that is not the case. A frame needs a slight amount of flex in various areas in order to help you turn and to stop the frame skipping at the end of the push. A slight amount of flex near the wheels adds grip at the end of your push. The 3PF frame as been engineered with just the right amount of flex.
7075 is an Aerospace aluminum alloy. It is the premier choice for aerospace applications requiring the best combination of strength, stress corrosion cracking resistance and toughness. 7050 exhibits better toughness/corrosion resistance characteristics than 7075. T6 - means that the 3PF frame has been solution heat treated and then artificially aged. This tempering process greatly increases the hardness of the metal. The extrusion must be held in a special jig while it is tempered to stop it from twisting.
The 3PF frame comes in 2 lengths. 13.2" 4x110mm or 12.8" 4x100mm that will fit 105mm wheels.
Bont has pro teams all over the globe and our teams include many of the best skaters in the world. We have used them to fine tune the frame on a variety of surfaces over an 18 month period.

The removable 3PF Midpoint works with most brands of boots but only with Bont 3PF frames. Add the 3PF Midpoint to remove stress and loss of power when skating outdoors. Remove the 3PF Midpoint when skating indoors and on the banked track to increase the flex of the frame which aids in turning the frame in the corners.Buy Now
