Bont 3PF 7050 Inline Speed Frame
Bont 3PF 7050: LIKE NOTHING YOU'VE SEEN BEFORE
..........LIKE NOTHING YOU'VE EVER SKATED
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 combines the best materials and the most advanced inline frame computer stress test simulations on earth.
Computer-Aided Stress Testing
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 widespread cause of frame breakage. The design was then tested in our 3D simulator which tests the frame's 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 fascinating.
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 from skipping at the end of the push. A slight amount of flex near the wheels adds grip at the end of your push. The Bont 3PF frame has been engineered with just the right amount of flex.
7050 T6 Aluminum
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.
2 And 3 Point
The 3PF frame can be attached to a 195mm 2-point boot or our new 195mm 3-point boots. This gives you the most flexibility of any frame available to mix and match a setup that suits your needs. For example, indoor inline speed skaters want the flexibility of a 2-point frame whereas road skaters want the strength of a 3-point.
NOTE: This frame will not fit standard 3-point boots. It will only fit the new 195mm 3pt boots or any 195mm 2-point boots.
