Air Cooled Super Lite Eventing/Racing Boots are made from lightweight microfiber leather and incorporate super strong P.E. polycarbonate strike guards which come with a lifetime guarantee. They are favoured by racehorse trainers who require superior lightweight protection and also by eventers who prefer to use lighter boots, but still need a high level of protection.
How do they work? As the horse gallops air passes through the front vents, circulates and exits out of the side vents. This process allows a constant stream of cold air to pass through over the tendons, keeping them cool.
Microfiber leather is stronger than real leather, stretches and moulds to the horse's leg and retains its original shape. It has the advantage of being lighter but offering greater protection and the good news is that it is fully machine washable and has excellent durability.
Front Boots: Less sculpted around the fetlock than other boots in our 'Air-Cooled' range in order to decrease weight. A strike guard runs down the back of the boot protecting the important tendons and ligaments from knocks and over reach injuries. 6 air vents allow a constant stream of air to pass through the boots whilst the horse is in action.
Hind Boots: Shorter-cut than the other boots in our 'Air-Cooled' range in order to decrease weight. A strike guard runs along the front of the boot protecting the leg from impact with fences. 8 air vents allow a constant stream of air to pass through the boots whilst the horse is in action.
