The Bont 3PF inline speed skating frame is like nothing you’ve seen, like nothing you’ve 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 is brought together with the best materials and the most advanced inline frame computer stress test simulations in the world.

Our Pro Team skaters are some of the best in the World and love to give us constant feedback. From the little things like the placement of the buckle to trialing the latest materials, they are helping Bont create products that not only look good but perform at the elite level.
7050 T6 ALUMINIUM
7050 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 to stop it from twisting.
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 popular cause of frame breakage. The design was then tested in our 3D simulator which tests the frames strengths and weaknesses in a real skating simulation. The design was tweaked and re-tested. This is why Bont has not had a single frame break in the last 12 years.
35 years on from Mr. Inze Bont's first frame design and Bont is still setting the design trends. The 2PF/3PF range of frames are designed to look good while offering the perfect amount of flex.
The 3PF frame comes in 2 lengths. 13.2" 4x110mm or 12.8" 4x100mm that will fit 105mm wheels.
PREFECT FLEXMany 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 skipping at the end of the push. A slight amount of flex near the wheels adds grip at the end of your push. The 3PF frame as been engineered with just the right amount of flex.
