The Bont Hybrid Carbon boot is Bont's top-of-the-line roller derby boot. Tested and trusted by the best roller derby skaters all over the world. It is the choice of most of our sponsored roller derby skaters. This boot is a lot lighter and stronger than most competing models thanks to its carbon fiber base. The thin base also brings you closer to the ground increasing your stability.
The carbon fiber is laid in different directions to increase strength. Bont's epoxy resin has been developed in-house and has the lowest activation temperature of any heat moldable boot on the market. The standard upper is made of Durolite which is an extremely strong and light-weight material from Japan. The other option is thick Australian leather. You can read about the boot in detail in the tech specs below.

SIZING AND FIT
Bont Men's sizes. Sizes 1-13 Full and half sizes. Width is a bit wider than Bont standard width. Sizing may vary.
Bont sizing is typically larger than most other skate boots so it is common to get a smaller size than you would in most other brands. If you are unsure of your size we recommend the Bont Size Calculator.
