Risport® Venetian Tradition
Risport Skates is located in Montebelluna, Treviso, a province in the North-East of Italy and home to some of the finest shoemakers and craftsmen since 1808. Decades of Venetian tradition have influenced the unique sense of design, color and craftsmanship of modern Montebelluna. And now the city is now considered the world’s center for sports shoes, with ice and roller skates as two specialties of this vibrant shoe district.
Distinctive features as well as the use of modern technology, Risport has always stood above its competitors. The company has been an industry leader offering innovative design and using materials and technology which meet the demands of amateur and professional skaters alike. In 1995, Risport became part of the Lange Boot company, a leader in ski boot manufacturing.
Risport is key division of the Rossignol Group and will continue offering cutting-edge technology and steadily evolving solutions to a fast-growing skating community. Ice skates remain the core of Montebelluna’s long boot manufacturing tradition, where style, design and detailed craftsmanship are a must and passed on from one generation to the next. It’s this “made in Italy” quality which distinguishes our products.
Risport Amazing Features
Each Risport boot model has different features. To help our customers better understand our products, we use our Descriptive Technical Icons to display the qualities and different materials used for each boot model.
COLLAR PADDED ALL AROUND
The upturned lining on the upper along with greater padding guarantees very high levels of comfort for the athlete.
Upper made with a special microfiber, the result of study by our technicians and collaboration with our suppliers. By combining thin polymer bers and special processing, this material assumes characteristics similar to those of genuine leather, uniting extraordinary lightness with superior technical properties such as abrasion resistance and tensile strength, as well as being highly breathable.
3D FABRIC LINING
Risport has studied a new three-dimensional fabric with a high level of resilience and is therefore able to cushion blows without undergoing changes thanks to its thickness. Furthermore, this fabric ensures comfort without neglecting performance.
SINGLE LAYER OF LEATHER SOLE
The sole is composed of a 4 mm single layer of leather with leather heel, with an insert of ultra lightweight thermoplastic material to reduce weight.
