The unmatched performance of a heat moldable light weight quad boot with all the modern advancements in boot technology such as the use of carbon fiber, heat moldable resins, and new layup techniques. The Quad Racer Carbon features a leather outer skin, Suede-L liner and a carbon base. The Australian leather is extremely supple and the skates feel like you are wearing slippers, they are that comfy.

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 maufactured 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.
There are 3 Racer models.
Quad Racer Carbon, Quad Racer Leather and Quad Racer.

The Quad Racer Leather and Carbon have a range of color options from supple Australian leather to wild shiny microfiber or any combination that you come up with. The trim is the part that goes around the laces, cuff and the velcro strap. The color options for these parts are more varied because the leather does not need to take as much of a beating. The trim color options are:

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 boots 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.
