BONT の新ウィール Kinetic 販売開始のお知らせ。写真の Kinetic DDFB-HRR には 85A と書いてあるが、HRR は87A と若干硬いようです。なのに宣伝文句にグリップが良いとか、いい事ばかり書いてあり・・・にわかには信じられません。とりあえず、その他もろもろ使った方の評価待ち、というところです。

BONT Kinetic DDFB-HRR Wheel
    Bont Kinetic DDFB will offer two versions:
  • 85A is based on the Highroller.
  • 87A will be based on the HRR.
Bont has a new wheel coming out next week. It is the next evolution of our Flex Band Tech. The patent application has been submitted and as soon as I get the go ahead I will post the internal pics.

The new wheel is called the Bont Kinetic DDFB. The first incarnation of the wheel has been designed for track racing or road racing where more flex and rebound is required. This wheel has a 3 week cure time unlike the usual one week for most new wheels.

This new wheel offers more grip and maneuverability than our current track wheels while maintaining the roll. There will be two versions to start with. One is based on the Highroller which will be 85A and the other will be based on the HRR which will be 87A.

We have a lot of wheels in our line up now, as we strive to have the perfect wheel for each surface. We will launch a new wheel web site next week to clearly explain the purpose of each wheel so it is easy to make your choice.

We have just launched our new wheel web site and it is the first chance to see inside the new Kinetic wheels. Please take a look and let me know if there is anything else you would like to see on the site.

The new Kinetic wheels will be available next week. If you get one if the first sets, you will need to wait 3 weeks to get the best results out of them.

I don't usually release team testing feedback, but here is what Diego Rosero emailed me after testing the Kinetic wheels:

Bont Kinetic DDFB WheelI just tried the light blue Kinetic wheels that you sent me and they have a lot more grip. I say they are the best track wheels I have ever skated on. I tried them on Friday and thought they can’t be this good, it must just be the cold weather. So I tried them on Saturday which was hot and this wheel is very very good. I was skating with 3 other top Colombians and they couldn’t keep up with me. I was taking the corners how I wanted and cutting the track like never before and the wheels never never let me down.... the grip on those wheels was amazing... I could come in to the corner with a lot of speed and skate easy through the corner and at the end accelerate hard on the exit and it was like nothing really really good grip and bite. On the straight, it was easy and the double push was very comfortable. One other thing that was good about the wheels was the wear. I did a full training session on Friday and 2 long races on Saturday on a really hot day and the wheels felt almost the same from beginning to end. After the race, everyone was talking about these wheels. On points and elimination I score 40 points and the second score 20 and then 10 and on elimination race I lapped the pack..... I have been training good but not to be that good in front of my team mates.

Bont G4 inline racing wheels - Kinetic DDFB

Application: Banked tracks.
Overview: The Kinetic DDFB wheel
Bont G4 inline racing wheels - Kinetic DDFB
The Kinetic wheel utilizes all of our research of the hub, rebound, track and road materials, urethane and our new golf ball technology in one wheel. The Kinetic wheel utalizes the material used in the center of golf balls to increase the energy return of the wheel. Inside the wheel, there is a patented world first Dual Durometer Flex Band. This unique flex band is harder on the outside and softer on the inside. Combined with the flex of the hub, and our urethane chemistry, it gives us an incredible amount of adjustability in making this wheel the best in the world. Rather than place the flex band on the hub itself and lose the extra roll and stiffness created by the mechanical lock (see tech page for more details), we wrapped the energy returning flex band around the mechanical lock so we maintain the wheels stiffness and roll.
  1. Mechanical Lock: The mechanical lock holds the urethane onto the wheel so the urethane has less flex at the base of the wheel. It is also very stiff which increases roll.
  2. DDFB: The Dual Durometer Flex Band is made of a super high rebounding golf ball material. We have engineered it to be softer in the middle and harder on the outside which provides more energy return than a solid state flex band.

  3. Hub: The Kinetic hub flexes to combine with the flex band and high rebounding urethane to provide even more energy return. The hinge point in the hub allows the hub to flex exactly in the middle so you can transfer quicker between the inside and outside of the wheel which increases maneuverability.

  4. Long lasting Urethane: There are some wheels on the market that grip well for a few laps and then once the outer layer of the wheel has worn off, the wheels lose their grip. The Kinetic wheel keeps gripping race after race after race because there is no special coating on the wheel that makes it grip, it is the internal DDFB that provides the grip.
  5. More Maneuverability: The softness at the center of the flex band allows for much sharper turning and more maneuverability on the track. This allows skaters to take a tighter line around the track and make tighter turns for passing maneuvers.
We offer two choices of Kinetic DDFB wheels:
  1. Kinetic DDFB-HR for maximum grip
  2. Kinetic DDFB-HRR for maximum roll
Both wheels use a different combination of inner flex band hardness, rebound, and urethane to provide two different wheels to fill the needs of today's track skaters. They can be mixed together to suit individual skater needs. The Kinetic DDFB is the most advanced wheel on the planet and it is set to change banked track racing.
