Bont Hybrid Microfiber Roller Derby Skate is unlike most entry level packages that are made with old construction techniques using cardboard and wood.
The Hybrid has a fully hand made fiberglass base and it is heat moldable to your feet.
Outer Skin: Microfiber
Heel Rise: 6mm
Innersole: EVA thermo-moldable
Heat Moldable: Fully Heat Moldable Base Utilizing Epoxy Thermoset Resin
Padding: Memory Foam
Boot Height: Standard
Size Options: 3 - 13
The fiberglass in the boot is made hard by the use of a thermosetting epoxy resin. Resin development is something that we have been doing since 1975. Formulating a resin that is super stiff, yet becomes moldable at low temperatures and has a fast cure time is critical for our unique requirement which is why we are the only skate manufacturer who develops our own resins in-house.
Our resin becomes soft at just 60°C (140°F) which is the lowest in the industry. Once you heat the resin, mold the shoe and let it set, it is permanently set without the need to remold. You can also reheat the resin as many times as you like.
Bont boots are manufactured by hand in a process where we build the boot from the inside out by hand laying the carbon of fiberglass 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, our method results in a much stronger and lighter structure.
The Hybrid is made with high density closed cell memory foam. This padding will not deform over time or retain water from sweat or wet surfaces.
The Hybrid boot is only available in black with white trim.
Speed skates are a high performance apparatus so it is not always easy to have one size chart that will please everyone because some skaters like their skates tighter than others. What Bont has done is provide you with the exact last sizes in the chart above and you can use it to determine your Bont size. As a basic rule, most skaters like their boots to be 3-4mm longer than the last. This allows for your feet to grow in length when the boots are tightened. If you like your boots super tight, then just add 1-2mm but be warned, your toes will touch the end and possibly be scrunched.
Bont has added a new row called WIDTH. It makes it easy to determine if you have wide or narrow feet. For example, a size 4 boot will fit a 86 - 90mm wide foot. If you have a 91mm wide foot, then you would probably be better off with a wide boot.
To find your size, place a tape measure on a flat surface up against a wall. Stand on the tape measure with your heel against the wall. Look down and take the measurement from your longest toe. Then use the MM scale on the size chart to find your size.
Here are some examples of mm sizes for speed skates and the boot size recommended:
253mm + 4mm you should order size 6.5
268mm + 4mm you should order size 8
273mm + 4mm you should order size 9
291mm + 4mm you should order size 11.
Please use the above link for accurate sizing. This package includes free shipping but all exchanges are postage paid by customer. Please ensure you get right size.
Anatomical Forefoot Shape
Conventional quad skates offer a “dress shoe” type shaping. Although highly aesthetic this will cause the toes along with the metatarsals to be overly constricted, compressing the nerves between the metatarsals which often results in the common "hot foot" sensation.
Bont skates anatomical shaping allows the foot to function in its most efficient and anatomically correct position.
Anatomical Heel Cup
The anatomical heel cup shaping of Bont quad skates provides increased stability and more power through your push. This stabilization is achieved without any mechanical operation or over tightening of straps/laces allowing for increased comfort and blood circulation. The heel cup is fully heat moldable in the oven.
This is a set of leather toe guards designed to protect the toe area of your Bont Quad Skates. Roller Derby is a contact sport and rubbing and dragging of the toe area on hard surfaces may result in the boot materials wearing out sooner than desired.
These toe guards are extremely durable made from 100% Australian Leather and are designed to extend the life of your skates.
87A - 60mm x 40mm
The Ballistic wheel is easy to break in, has a high rebound, high grip and great wear properties.

Heat Molding for Bont Boots
Bont skates are the most heat moldable skates on the market. Our resin is developed in house and has been perfected over 35 years to be an extremely stiff resin that becomes pliable at relatively low temperatures. You may have tried heat molding other brands of boots and found that you needed to increase the temperature to try to get it to mold. That is not the case with your Bont boots and we urge you to start with low temperatures.
The base of the boot is moldable which means all stiff areas of the boot can be molded in a standard oven. This is unlike most boots on the market which have uppers that are moldable. You do not need to mold your boots if they fit you straight out of the box. To mold your boots, remove the wheels. You can leave the frame on if you wish. Pre heat the oven to 85°C/185°F. Place the boot in the oven for 15-20 minutes. Higher temperatures will void your warranty and may damage your boot. Caution: Do not place your feet in the hot boots or you may burn your feet. Let them cool a little and test the boot temperature with your hand before placing your feet in them. Tighten the straps/laces/buckles and allow to cool. If you have any lumps or bunions on your feet or if there are any areas causing discomfort, while the boot is still warm you can use the round end of a blunt object to press out any part of the boot. You can heat mold the boots as many times as you like. Please watch this quick video below to see how it’s done.
Heat Molding FAQ: If the boots take 20 minutes to mold at 85°C, can I put them in the oven for 10 minutes at 170°C? The answer is no. Please stick to the guidelines and your boots will not be damaged.
