The Bont Vaypor is one of the top inline speed skates in the world today. These skates are designed by Inze Bont, one of the world’s leading skate designers. They have been worn by some of the best skaters in the world.
Bont is a trend setter in the industry. They were the first footwear manufacturer to use carbon fiber, fiberglass, Kevlar and heat moldable resins in their speed skates. They are a pioneer an the industry.
The Vaypor Bont boots are constructed of carbon fiber, which makes them both light and comfortable. It also includes memory foam cushioning for added comfort and support.
The boots are made-to-order, and the skates are 100% unique so they are no in stock but rather custom made. They will take about 8 to 9 weeks to arrive since the boots aren’t produced until you order them. This ensures that they are made just for you.
Also, I highly recommend you check out their skate size chart before you buy as these skates don’t always match your shoe size.

The Bont Racer has so many options to choose from. There are dozens of styles to choose from, or with the MyBont Racer, you can completely customize your skate colors and style. It is one of the most customized quad skate boot on the market today. The 3 boots at the top of the image are all ones I customized in under 5 minutes.
With the MyBont Racer, choose between three different boot cuts: straight cut, regular cut or U-cut. Or, go with the cheaper, less-customized Racer U-Cut, Fiberglass or Carbon speed skates. Finally, there are the regular Racer Quad Speed Skates that come in black, white, black/white or white/black boot designs.
There are so many options to choose from, it can be a bit intimidating when you first look at them all. However, they are all pretty much the same skate. The only difference is the boots and how customized you want to get with them.
MyBont is Cool
For me, I’d go with the MyBont package. These top-of-the-line quad speed skates out right now and they give you a lot of configuration options. You can choose colors for 10 different parts of the skate (left side, right side, tongue, laces, stitching color, logo color, etc.).
Next, you can even customize how much padding is in the boot, whether or not you want a heel rise, the kind of arch you want in the skate and, most importantly, the width of the skate. If you want to customize everything, MyBont is worth a look.
