The Bont Hybrid Carbon 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. It is called the Hybrid because it is a cross between Bont's Patriot Derby boot and their Quad Racer.
Base - Carbon.
Lining material - Suede-L.
Outer skin - Australian leather.
High density closed cell memory foam - This padding will not deform over time or retain water from sweat or wet surfaces.
Lightness and strength - Bont boots are manufactured by hand in a process where they build the boot from the inside out by hand laying the carbon 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 gluing the upper to the pre made base. However, this method results in a much stronger and lighter structure.
The Bont Boots are the most heat moldable quad boots on the market. They are made with a specially designed thermo set resin that allows your shoe to become soft when the right amount of heat is applied so you can pop them in the oven and mold them to your feet!!. While the Bont boot has an overall narrower fit than other boots, it is much easier to stretch the boot out using this heat mold technology. For instructions on how to do this, visit the Bont website: Bont Quad Boots
These boots have a soft toe box and are meant to fit like a glove.
