Bont Super B Boot
The Original Bont Boot
In 1975, Inze Bont created his first fiberglass boot which revolutionized the entire skating industry. That boot was called the Super Bont. The structure of the Super Bont boot was copied not only by short track boot makers but also long track, quads, and cycling shoes. The new Super B boot pays homage to the design of the Super Bont.
Leather Outer Skin
Premium full-grain Australian cowhide is used for the outer skin of the Super B. This leather is low maintenance and durable at 1.2mm thick it also has stretch.
Derby vs Speed
The Super B is available for derby and speed skating. The derby version is higher cut at the cuff and has reinforced toe protection. The speed version is low cut and made without the additional toe protection to on save weight.
Leather top with 8mm padding and mesh lining creates a luxurious tongue padding for comfort and protects your foot from the laces. Add a lace loop to keep in the place for the prefect fit.
The Super B is stitched by an expert sewer who has no other role apart from stitching. Every stitch serves a purpose and stitches the outer skin to the boot itself to result in less stretch and a longer last boot.
Bont manufacture their boots by hand, building the boot from the inside out by hand laying the carbon or fiberglass around the last (plastic foot). This method of manufacturing is extremely time consuming compared to the traditional method of quad boot manufacturing.
Between the outer skin and the liner Bont add a material that is proprietary to them 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. It can never move or be removed and becomes an integral part of the boots structure.
Carbon Fiber Made
The base of the Super B is made by hand by sandwiching cross weave carbon and uni-directional carbon fiber which is embedded with epoxy thermo setting resin.
A last is a plastic replica of a foot that the boot is built around. Bont have been perfecting their lasts since 1975 and believe there is always room for improvement. They have put a lot of time and effort into creating their lasts so that Bont boots can fit more feet!
The Super B is made with high density closed cell memory foam to stop the boot from deforming and retaining water
