Entry-level redefined!

Constructed using the most versatile, comfortable and durable materials available, the all-new BR3 is the absolute gold standard for clubs and school programs. Designed specifically to handle the demands of club and school programs, the BR3 delivers durability, comfort and performance in a more economical package. Harnessing Bont Rowing's renowned and proven anatomically-correct design, the BR3 will take your club, school or individual performances to new heights.

Featuring a lighter, stiffer and lower stack two-piece carbon fibre chassis, BR3 takes our popular PBR3 and delivers better energy transfer, greater durability and reduced bend point force for a more natural and powerful interaction between foot and stretcher.

Our uncompromising approach to club and school-level performance pushes beyond power transfer with a lower forefoot cradle, increased bend point elasticity, wider heel cup counter and achilles gateway for a more versatile fit across the entire size range. Usability is further enhanced with targeted Super Stretch fabric placed around the first and fifth metatarsal for our most supportive and stable anatomical fit yet.

The all-new BR3 retains a tried and proven single-strap Velcro enclosure with FISA and competition-approved safety strap for emergency removal of shoes. The all-new laser cut hydrophobic microfiber upper and anti-stretch backing improves foot hold and stability while the proprietary Vent Mesh takes comfort and ventilation to another level for a more comfortable row for rowers of all foot shapes and sizes.

Features

World First Split-sole Design

World First Split-sole Design

Combines the advances of Bont Cycling’s proven carbon soles with the innovative Sweet-Spot flex zone.

The carbon heel and forefoot cradles provide optimal power transfer, reduced foot slop, and—with the Sweet-Spot— allow easy, yet controlled flexion for a stable and comfortable catch.

Anatomic Heel Counter

Anatomic Heel Counter

Blisters, rubbing and achilles pressure are all issues we have seen in rowing. We have built the shape of the heel counter and it’s cut out specifically for the motion the heel and achilles go through during the stroke. No more blisters, hot sports or discomfort km after km.

Dual Lock-Down Safety Straps

Dual Lock-Down Safety Straps

Distributes the fastening load to a wide area to provide a solid connection without hotspots. Straps use 3M Velcro—the gold standard—and are optimized to require less effort, length, and drag to release, while fitting all foot types, including high arches.

Mid Arch Support

Mid Arch Support

The supportive carbon sole structure improves foot positioning and control, an impact that is felt right up the lower limb to aid knee, hip and spinal tracking through the stroke.

Carbon Fiber Forefoot Cradle

Carbon Fiber Forefoot Cradle

Effective force transfer, more responsive steering, improved feel and far greater comfort.

The shape and build of the carbon fiber forefoot cradle aids the actual shape of the foot when rowing and allows a better fit across all foot types, while providing lateral support for steering and control.

Shoe Profile

Shoe Profile

Developed with the rower’s foot in mind—anatomically shaped, and supported where it counts. The Project B shoes look like no other because no other shoe is designed around your feet *. With a wider toe box and a wrap around upper that works with the sole to support you.

Carbon Fiber Heel Cup

Carbon Fiber Heel Cup

Heel connection and load are vital for the ultimate stroke, engaging your hamstring and gluteal muscles helps with force and control through the legs, pelvis and lower back. Project B brings you a carbon heel cup that supports your every stroke and moves with you.

Sweet-Spot Flex Zone

Sweet-Spot Flex Zone

Bends with the foot, reduces foot roll through the stroke and guides movement for a more controlled, efficient row and an effortless catch.

EVA Outsole

EVA Outsole

Primary point of contact provides elite connection for the efficient transmission of force.

Memory Foam Insole

Memory Foam Insole

Moulds to your foot shape for a customized fit. Quick-dry lining manages moisture for comfort and hygiene.

Tongueless

Tongueless Midfoot Wrap

Reduces weight, repels water, and enables quick entry and exit. Minimalist materials provide a refined fit and flexibility, allowing natural movement. Vented Durolite material improves airflow and drainage
