Z BOA

it’s time you took a look at the new Bont Z BOA ST Boot

The Z boa boot gives you the stiffness and ultra light weight that you would find in a $1000+ ST boot for a fraction of the cost. The Z is made with a 3k plain weave carbon fiber composite base. The carbon is sourced exclusively from the world’s #1 carbon manufacturer, Toray in Japan. The Boa system allows you to quickly tighten your skates after your warm up and between sets without having to get off the ice or kneel down and get wet knees.

Getting the right fit is essential for comfort and performance. The Z skate starts out being built around a last that has been modified and improved for over 35 years by Mr. Inze Bont. The epoxy resin is the most heat moldable in the industry. Under the liner is a high quality memory foam that is 2mm thick and 70A in hardness so your energy doesn’t get absorbed by the boot.

The tongue on the Z has been redesigned so you don’t even feel it. It is comfortable and light.

With the Z, you get the best of everything and for a very affordable price.

The Boa Advantage

  • Glove-like Fit

    The Boa Closure System provides custom comfort with smooth, even closure and no pressure points.
  • On-the-Fly

    Get easy, one-handed adjustment with a quick turn of the Boa dial. No more kneeling on wet ice.
  • Powerful Closure

    Once locked into place, Boa reels and laces stay that way. Normal skate laces stretch 7-10% which is why you need to re-tighten your laces.
  • Durable

    Made from aircraft-grade stainless steel, Boa laces are stronger per gram than tank armor.
  • Micro-adjustability

    Boa reels offer seemingly infinite degrees of fine tuning.
  • Lightweight

    Boa closures shed water, and ice, shaving precious weight.
  • Fast

    Quick on. Quick off. Boa saves time putting your skates on.
The Boa Advantage

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.

Anti Stretch

Carbon Fiber

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

Last Design

Padding

The Z 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 Z 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 short track 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 short track 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.
