Men's Roller Derby Skates
When fitting your men's roller derby skates, loosen the laces and wear thin socks. Put your foot in the men's roller derby skate and kick your heel to the back of the boot. Now tighten the bottom laces firmly but don't cut off the blood circulation.
You can tighten the top laces on your men's roller derby skates much tighter. If you feel any discomfort on your men's roller skates, you can heat mold your boots in the oven.
Women's Roller Derby Skates
Women's roller derby skates typically use shorter plates to match the smaller-sized roller skate boot. Women's roller derby skates often come in bright colors like pink, purple, white, and black. Women's roller skates can come in different styles, such as speed skates, park skates, street skates, indoor skates, and roller skates. The larger the wheel, the faster the skate will go and the harder it will be to push.
About Roller Skates
Bont roller skates are made lighter and stronger than most roller skates on the market. Our background comes from high-performance short-track speed skating and roller speed skating, so we have always made our roller skates with the same underlying principles of making the skates light, strong, and fast! When you try your Bont roller skates on for the first time, you will notice how light they feel and how comfortable they are. Once you try Bont roller skates and Bont roller derby skates, you won't be able to skate on another pair of skates again.
About Roller Derby Wheels
Bont Roller Derby Wheels such as the Evolve wheels and the Ballistic wheels are designed specifically for derby skating in a roller rink, and they will outperform ordinary roller skate wheels. Smaller wheels are slower than larger wheels and typically favoured for park skating.
Toe stops for Derby Roller Skates
Toe stops are not actually used for stopping on roller derby skates. You use them to go! That’s why we named our professional toe stop the Toe Go! Our toe stop has been designed not to mark the floor, and it has a perfect take-off angle as well as a super grippy material. The head of the toe stop is oversized to give even more grip. A Toe Stop is a must for roller derby.
Roller Derby boots need to be comfortable and have lots of ankle support. You do not need a high cut boot for roller derby as long as your low cut boot has enough ankle support. Bont derby boots have carbon fiber or fiberglass counters, which are light and strong and will support your ankle for the tightest turns or hardest stops. Make sure you check out our sizing charts to obtain the best fit for your feet. To determine your shoe size, please review our size guide. Bont high cut boots offer more ankle support than low cut boots.
Derby Skate Plates - Nylon vs. Aluminum
Generally speaking, an aluminum plate is better than a nylon plate, but this difference is not as great on a Bont boot as with many other boots. The reason is that base of a Bont boot is stiffer than other boots which support the plate.
There are also many types of aluminum plates, including machined and cast plates. Machined aluminum plates such as the Bont Athena plate are higher-grade plates than the Bont Tracer plate, for example. Bont's nylon plate is called the Prodigy plate.
What is Roller Derby?
Roller derby consists of a series of short jams in which both teams send a skater called a jammer to try to lap opposing players. The defending players attempt to block the jammer and stop them from scoring points. A point is scored for each blocker the jammer passes. Roller derby is a contact sport played by two teams of 15 skaters. The USA has the largest number of registered roller derby players.
How are Roller Derby Skates different from normal Roller Skates?
As roller derby is a contact sport, there are often crashes, so roller derby skates need to hold up to more punishment than a normal roller skate. Bont roller derby skates typically have a triple layer of toe protection for this very reason, but we still recommend wearing a toe protector to keep your boots looking like new (for as long as possible). You can play roller derby on any type of roller skate. Still, a low-cut boot made of fiberglass or carbon fiber will allow you to have more maneuverability and make it easier to get around your opponent or move into position to block an opponent.
Is Roller Derby Dangerous?
Roller derby is not very dangerous. Skaters wear helmets, mouth guards, knee guards, elbow pads, and wrist protectors. If you fall over or are knocked over, your protection will stop you from being injured. There are very few injuries in roller derby bouts. The wrist is the most commonly injured part of the body when playing roller derby, so make sure you use a high-quality set of wrist protectors such as the Bont wrist protectors.
Why should I buy Bont Roller Derby Skates?
Bont roller derby skates are designed specifically for roller derby. Roller derby can be tough on skates, and skaters can wear through the outer skin material if high-quality materials are not used in the construction of the boot. Bont Roller derby wheels use high-grade urethane, and Bont roller derby bearings are tested on Bont’s professional roller derby team of skaters. If you are looking for the best roller derby skates, Bont roller derby skates are for you. Make sure you check out our sizing charts to obtain the best fit for your feet.
Can Roller Derby Skates be used outdoors?
Yes, no problem at all. Remember that you may want to change your harder wheels to a softer wheel, such as the Bont BPM wheel or Glide wheel. These wheels will give superior performance outdoors. Also, you may damage your indoor wheels when skating outdoors. So it is a good idea to swap your wheels to a dedicated outdoor wheel when skating outdoors. I would also suggest you use another set of bearings just to make swapping your wheels out that much easier and faster. Outdoor wheels are softer wheels than indoor wheels, which are harder than you use outdoors.
