Bont's new line of 2012 Full customs vaypors are fit-for-speed
Full custom means a cast of your foot is taken and boots are hand made from the casts at the factory. This process is very accurate and gives the skater great support and fit. Most foot problems like bunions, high or low arch , very narrow or very wide feet are great canidates for full custom.

3 point means bont boots connect the frame in 3 locations instead of 2. This low connection point of the boot/frame makes for a very strong setup. The conicle cone shaped bridges of the boot now come down to meet the frame, making a strong setup with no twisting during skating. One of the most revolutionary inventions since 100mm wheels came out. Bont has figured out how to make a 4x100mm and 4x110mm boot very low profile. The whole speed skating industry has figured out that 100mm wheels are the fastest, but low profile setup are hard to come by.
Low profile means more power to the ground, less stress on ankles and back. This new 3-point has a very very low profile, the lowest out of any combination made. This allowes the boot to very low to the ground. Great for skaters with back problems of ankles issues. Bont also add a new angle to the boot. This new lower heal angle gives added back comfort and more stability. This is a huge invention. Many top skaters have tried this and quickly feel the huge advantage in the lower heal.
Adam's View: Full customs are the way to go. many skaters mistake oven molding boots for full custom. Stock boots can be molded in the oven, while Full customs duplicates your foot into the boot. No need for fitting after.

Race Tip: The lower heal allows the skater to have more of a side push. Your slide is longer and more to the side than back. Also, the 3-point lower boot angle causes the toe off push at the end of your stride to all on the ground. The frame stays on the ground through the whole push. Thus more speed and comfort.
