Black Widow

Black Widow

The Black Widow was our most popular quad boot in the ‘80’s. Now, we have reinvented it with a modern look and made it with modern materials. The boot is fully heat moldable and made with a carbon composite base. The rear of the boot has an aluminium plate built in so you can mount small plates to the front of the boot without stressing the boot. Anti-stretch tapes stop the boot stretching over time. If you want to use this boot for derby, we strongly advise that you use protection at the front of the boot as the outer skin will not withstand a beating.

Heat Moulding

The carbon fiber in the boot is made hard by the use of a thermosetting epoxy resin. Resin development is something that we have been doing since 1975. Formulating a resin that is super stiff, yet becomes moldable at low temperatures and has a fast cure time is critical for our unique requirement which is why we are the only skate manufacturer who develops our own resins in-house.

Our resin becomes soft at just 60°C (140°F) which is the lowest in the industry. Once you heat the resin, mold the shoe and let it set, it is permanently set without the need to remold. You can also reheat the resin as many times as you like.

Stitching

The Black Widow 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 purpose and stitches the outer skin to the boot itself. This results in less stretch and a longer lasting boot. The Black Widow incorporates a beautifully crafted double stitch into parts of the boot.

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.

Memory Foam

The Hybrid is made with high density closed cell memory foam. This padding will not deform over time or retain water from sweat or wet surfaces.

Anatomical Forefoot Shape

Conventional quad skates offer a “dress shoe” type shaping. Although highly aesthetic this will cause the toes along with the metatarsals to be overly constricted, compressing the nerves between the metatarsals which often results in the common "hot foot" sensation.

Bont skates anatomical shaping allows the foot to function in its most efficient and anatomically correct position.

Anatomical Heel Cup

The anatomical heel cup shaping of Bont quad skates provides increased stability and more power through your push. This stabilization is achieved without any mechanical operation or over tightening of straps/laces allowing for increased comfort and blood circulation. The heel cup is fully heat moldable in the oven.
