These incredibly light and technical cross-country boots have been designed for strength and optimum protection with a new impact responsive smart layer between the leg and the outer Strike Guard. This smart layer is composed of impact responsive material know as ‘Shoc’ which contains free form molecules that remain supple & flexible when not under pressure. These molecules articulate and lock together when impacted forming a hard, protective barrier. The shear force is dissipated and thus shields the horses leg. Shoc molecules then return to a flexible state thereafter. This boot retains a PolyCarbonate strike guard covering the vulnerable rear tendon area.
The outer MicroFlex cage mesh offers lightweight protection with 360° air ventilation, permitting exchange of air over its entire surface area whilst galloping, reducing tendon temperature.
Offering cutting edge shock absorption, tendon support & flexible PU strike guards, these StealthAir XC Boots offer the best cross-country protection at an affordable price, which in turn makes them suitable for tough general work including hunting, hacking & schooling.
IMPORTANT FITTING INFORMATION
Please be aware that correct fitting is essential for the optimum use of Shoc Air Boots. To achieve a safe & secure fit these cross-country boots need to be put on firmly. Remove from packaging and squeeze the strike guards between fingers to shape prior to putting on. The guards are often flattened when packaged and need to be made more pliable for best fitting.
Note: Due to the structure of the boot and the nature of the Shoc Impact Responsive material it is difficult to over-tighten these boots.
