Bont

bont

Founded in 1975, Bont began when Inze Bont, a recreational skater decided to fiberglass the back of his leather skates to gain extra support. A simple, yet innovative approach which started a company now in its 36th year, with product ranges across two highly competitive sports and sales across 56 countries.

Inze's innovation saw Bont as the first footwear manufacturer to commercially use materials such as fiberglass in 1975, Kevlar in 1986 and Carbon in 1989. The companies philosophy in continually driving development, along with its reputation for producing the highest quality products rapidly made it the largest producer of hand made speed skates in the world, a position it has continually held and one that is backed up by not only our volume of products sold, but by countless world championship medals.

Bont as a company continues to grow with the help of a dedicated team of individuals. Our team, including our factory which is dedicated to Bont products only, strives to continually improve our products in all aspects. We work with total respect for all within the Bont family and value all input from within our team and from the countless individuals who use our products.

Bont will continue to grow through maintaining our constant drive in product innovation, continually improving on product quality and through providing exceptional support and service.
