Manufacturer: Bont

The Z boa boot gives you the stiffness and ultra light weight that you would find in a $1000+ ST boot for a fraction of the cost. The Z is made with a 3k plain weave carbon fiber composite base. The carbon is sourced exclusively from the world’s #1 carbon manufacturer, Toray in Japan. The Boa system allows you to quickly tighten your skates after your warm up and between sets without having to get off the ice or kneel down and get wet knees.

Getting the right fit is essential for comfort and performance. The Z skate starts out being built around a last that has been modified and improved for over 35 years by Mr. Inze Bont. The epoxy resin is the most heat moldable in the industry. Under the liner is a high quality memory foam that is 2mm thick and 70A in hardness so your energy doesn’t get absorbed by the boot.

The tongue on the Z has been redesigned so you don’t even feel it. It is comfortable and light.

With the Z, you get the best of everything and for a very affordable price.

  •  The Boa Advantage

    • Glove-Like Fit

      The Boa Closure System provides custom comfort with smooth, even closure and no pressure points.

    • On-The-Fly

      Get easy, one-handed adjustment with a quick turn of the Boa dial. No more kneeling on wet ice.

    • Powerful Closure

      Once locked into place, Boa reels and laces stay that way. Normal skate laces stretch 7-10% which is why you need to re-tighten your laces.

    • Durable

      Made from aircraft-grade stainless steel, Boa laces are stronger per gram than tank armor.

    • Micro-Adjustability

      Boa reels offer seemingly infinite degrees of fine tuning.​​

    • Lightweight

      Boa closures shed water, and ice, shaving precious weight.

    • Fast

      Quick on. Quick off. Boa saves time putting your skates on.
