The stiffness of your skate frame can also impact your performance on the road. A stiffer frame can provide more power and control, while a more flexible frame can provide more comfort and shock absorption. Bont offers frames in a variety of stiffness levels, so you can find the perfect balance for your skating style. We have perfected our frames stiffness over decades of research.
It's important to ensure that your skate frame is compatible with your skate boots and wheels. At Bont, our frames are designed to fit our range of skate boots and wheels, ensuring optimal performance and compatibility.
Carbon Fiber Frames
Carbon fiber speed skating frames are a popular choice among inline skaters due to their lightweight and high-strength properties and among the best inline skate frames available. Carbon fiber is a composite material made of thin strands of carbon woven together and set in resin. The resulting material is both strong and lightweight, making it an ideal choice for aggressive and urban skating frames.
Benefits of Carbon Fiber Frames
Carbon fiber frames offer several benefits over traditional skate frame materials. Due to their lightweight nature, carbon fiber frames allow for greater agility and faster acceleration. They also provide a more responsive feel, allowing skaters to make quick turns and maneuvers with ease.
Experience in producing carbon fiber frames
Bont was the first speed skate company to use carbon fiber
in 1989, and since then, our carbon shoes and boots have won multiple Olympic
Gold Medlas in cycling, short track and long track speed skating. We have
produced over 3 million pairs of carbon fiber skates and we are experts in
producing high-quality carbon parts.
When purchasing carbon fiber frames, it's important to ensure your inline skate chasis is compatible with your existing skate setup. Many carbon fiber frames are designed to fit a specific boot or wheel setup, so be sure to check compatibility before making a purchase.
3 Wheel or 4 Wheel Inline Frames
3-wheel and 4-wheel inline frames are both popular options for inline skaters, each with their own unique advantages. 3-wheel frames are typically lighter and more maneuverable, making them a great choice for urban skating and freestyle skating. The larger wheels provide better speed and momentum, making them ideal for long-distance skating. 4-wheel frames, on the other hand, provide more stability and a lower center of gravity, making them great for speed skating and racing. They also offer better control and stopping power, which is important for aggressive skating. Whether you choose a 3-wheel or 4-wheel inline frame, make sure to select the appropriate size and stiffness for your skating style and skill level.
Whether you prefer 3 wheel or 4 wheel inline frames, we have you covered. Both options offer their own unique benefits, with 3 wheel frames providing more agility and speed, while 4 wheel frames offer more stability and control. At Bont, we offer a range of options for both styles, ensuring that you can find the perfect fit for your skating needs.
Inline Skate Frame Mounting
Mounting your inline skate frames properly is crucial for ensuring the best possible performance and safety. Most inline skate frames are attached to the skate boot using a mounting block, which is a small piece of plastic or metal that sits between the boot and the frame. The mounting block has several holes that line up with corresponding holes in the frame, allowing screws to be inserted to secure the frame in place.
When mounting your inline skate frames, it's important to ensure that the frame is centered and aligned properly. Improper alignment can cause your skates to veer off to one side or the other, making it difficult to maintain control and balance. It's also important to use the correct type and length of screws when mounting your frames, as using the wrong screws can damage the mounting block or even the frame itself.
If you're unsure about how to mount your inline skate frames, it's always best to consult a professional or an experienced skater for assistance. Properly mounted frames can provide you with the support and performance you need to take your skating to the next level.
Inline Skate Frame Care
Proper care and maintenance is important to keep your inline skate frames in top condition. After each use, wipe down the frames with a dry cloth to remove any dirt or debris. Avoid using water or harsh chemicals, as this can damage the frame material. Check the frame bolts and axles regularly to ensure they are tight and secure. If you notice any damage or wear and tear, it's important to address it promptly to prevent further damage. With proper care and maintenance, your inline skate frames will provide long-lasting performance and enjoyment.
Inline Skate Frame Accessories
When it comes to optimizing your inline skating experience, having the right accessories for your frames can make all the difference. At Bont, we offer a range of inline skate frame accessories to help you customize your skates to your specific needs and preferences.
Frame spacers are a must-have accessory for inline skaters, as they help ensure that your wheels are properly aligned and reduce friction between your bearings. We offer a variety of frame spacers in different sizes and materials to fit your needs.
Wheel axles are another important component of your inline skate frames, as they secure your wheels in place and provide stability while skating. We offer 7000 series axles, which are strong and durable, ensuring that your frame axles will not strip during use.
Bearing spacers help ensure that your bearings are properly aligned and reduce friction, leading to a smoother skating experience. We offer bearing spacers in different sizes and materials to fit your needs.
Frame Mounting Bolts
Frame mounting bolts secure your frames to your skate boots, and are an essential component for any inline skater. We offer frame mounting bolts in different lengths and materials to ensure a secure and customized fit for your skates.
Mounting inline skate frames is a straightforward process that requires a few basic tools. To begin, remove the wheels and axles from the old frame and set them aside. Next, remove the mounting bolts that hold the old frame in place and set them aside as well. Place the new frame on top of the skate boot, aligning the mounting holes with those on the boot. Insert the mounting bolts into the holes, and hand tighten them. Once all bolts are in place, use a skate tool or socket wrench to tighten them securely. Finally, reattach the wheels and axles, and check that everything is aligned and tightened properly. It's important to follow manufacturer instructions and recommended torque specifications to ensure proper mounting and prevent damage to the frames or boots.
Aligning inline skate frames is important to ensure optimal performance and safety. Here are the steps to align inline skate frames:
- Place the skates on a flat surface.
- Check the wheels to ensure they are all touching the ground evenly.
- Loosen the bolts holding the frame to the boot, but do not remove them completely.
- Adjust the frame so that the wheels are all touching the ground evenly.
- Use a tool to tighten the bolts gradually and evenly in a criss-cross pattern.
- Check the alignment again and make any necessary adjustments until the wheels are aligned properly.
It's important to note that improper alignment can cause uneven wear on the wheels and bearings, and can also affect the skater's balance and control. Regular alignment checks and adjustments can help ensure a smooth and safe skating experience.
