A CLASSIC LOOK WITH THE HIGHEST PERFORMANCE POSSIBLE
The Hybrid boot combines the classic look of Bont's 80's quad boots with all the modern advancements in boot technology such as the use of carbon fiber, heat moldable resins, and new layup techniques.
DUROLITE OUTER SKIN
As the name suggests, Durolite is an extremely durable and light weight material. It will withstand minor crashes without scratching. The Hybrid has two Durolite options, Black or Super Yellow. A Durolite liner is also available as an upgrade. The Hybrid is also available in four genuine Australian leather options.
The Hybrid is stitched by an expert sewer who has no other role apart from stitching. Unlike most boots on the market that use cosmetic stitching, the stitching on Bont boots actually serves a purpose and stitches the outer skin to the boot itself. This results in less stretch and a longer lasting boot. The Hybrid incorporates a beautifully crafted double stitch into parts of the boot.
Bont boots are manufactured by hand in a process where we build the boot from the inside out by hand laying the carbon of fibreglass around the last (plastic foot). This method of manufacturing is extremely time-consuming compared to the traditional method of quad boot manufacturing which is done by glueing the upper to the pre-made base. However, our method results in a much stronger and lighter structure.
The Classic Quad Plate!
The Bont Athena plate is our take on the classic quad plate. We designed the plate with smooth, elegant lines that will last the test of time. The chassis is made of extruded 6061 aircraft aluminum. The cushions are made in the USA from premium ultra high rebounding urethane. The plate is made to extremely tight tolerances. The plate has a low profile which means that the wheels are closer to the boot than most plates. This lowers your center of gravity and improves edging. Our Athena plate has proven itself on the toughest skaters in the world: the Bont Quadstar derby team. The 20-degree kingpin angle is great for making tight turns as well as top end speed. A variable adjustment nut and grub screw allow you to skate your plate tight or loose to suit your style. The plate features delrin pivot cups. The plate is triple polished with a final brilliant shine polish. Together, it delivers optimum power transfer, total control, perfect edge grip and the one thing every skater is looking for – more speed!
