Bont Vaypor Carbon Custom Derby Skate Boot
The Vaypor is a fully customisable boot designed for high level derby. Scientists have proven that cooler feet can boost performance. So the new Vaypor has more ventilation than any boot that Bont have ever made. The tongue is ventilated to let hot air out of the top of the boot. At the front, the protective bumper has air holes to let air in so the faster you skate, the more air that rushes in and cools your feet. There are also ventilation holes on top of your toes that let cool air in and hot air out. The Vaypor has a number of systems in place to hold you firmly in the boot. Firstly, there are the laces. Then there is a bottom velcro strap and finally a top lace cover with another velcro strap.
The non custom boot comes in 4 options:
Durolite Black with white printing and red stitching
Durolite Super Yellow with black printing and black stitching
Thick Leather Black with gold printing and black stitching
Thick Leather White with black printing and black stitching
This is available in standard sizes with no variation on design

Important Ordering information:
These are fully custom skates, made by hand to order. As a result, the lead time on production is between 8-10 weeks-this can vary and you will be advised of an approximate time once known. At the point of ordering, one of our team will be in touch with you to confirm your custom options and sizing. Once this is confirmed with us and submitted to Bont the item is non refundable/non returnable unless a manufacturing fault occurs. If you wish to discuss your custom options with us first please give us a call. Custom skates are completely unique and made to fit you so they are well worth the wait!
Take a look at the technical specs for more information
The Vaypor is quite a spectacular looking boot. It is definitely not traditional and it will stand out in a crowd. The design is sleek, modern and unique.
Some skaters love the low cut look and we have made it an option on the Vaypor model. However, please be aware that although this option looks cool, it is not for everyone. The U-shaper can cause your heel to move up and down.
Matte Dry Carbon Base
The matte dry carbon look is all the rage in the exotic car world. We now offer this option for the Vaypor. Rather than having a shiny carbon base, this option gives you a matte finish on the carbon so that it looks dry with no shine at all.
The Vaypor 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 Vaypor incorporates a beautifully crafted double stitch into parts of the boot.
Cycling scientists have proven that cooler feet can boost performance. So the new Vaypor has more ventilation than any boot that we have ever made. The tongue is ventilated to let hot air out of the top of the boot. At the front, the protective bumper has air holes to let air in so the faster you skate, the more air that rushes in and cools your feet. There are also ventilation holes on top of your toes that let cool air in and hot air out.
The Vaypor has a number of systems in place to hold you firmly in the boot. Firstly, there are the laces. Then there is a bottom velcro strap and finally a top lace cover with another velcro strap.
The Vaypor is an extremely light weight boot. It weighs half of what some other top of the line boots weigh. If you are after the lightest possible boot, select the Durolite outer skin and liner.
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.
We source our carbon exclusively from the world's #1 carbon manufacturer, Toray of Japan. The base of the Vaypor 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.
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.
The Vaypor 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 Vaypor 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.
Small eyelets put pressure on a very small area and can cause pain. Bont eyelets have a large head which spreads the preasure over a larger area.
The Vaypor's tongue has a number of features. It is heat moldable so it can be heated in the oven and molded to your foot but it will also mold to your foot with the temperature from your own body heat. It has ventilation to let hot air out of the boot. The tongue has a handy velcro place holder that stops your tongue from moving. The tongue is made from foam that is thin and light yet still protects your foot from the laces.
TPU Toe Protector
The toe protector not only protects the front of your boot from impact but it also has ventilation which keeps your feet cool.
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.
The Vaypor is fully heat moldable.
