The boot is very simple to fit, being designed to be worn on front or hind legs as required.
The Airlite triple layer system , developed in conjunction with a world renowned expert in equine exercise physiology, uses an innovative combination of materials.
The outer layer is made of ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA), formed into a mesh for lightness.
A different form of EVA is used for the inner layer. Several cycles of development has resulted in the distinctive design, of oval holes and shaped raised areas. This shaping minimises weight, while generating channelling for air, to keep the leg cool and dry, and helping to disperse shockwaves.
These two layers of EVA provide effective protection against both concussion and penetration injuries. This protection is further enhanced by a strip of polycarbonate inserted down the back of the boot, inside the mesh, to protect vulnerable tendons. Between the two EVA layers is a fine mesh, to prevent dirt getting inside the boot.
The laboratory testing we have done has shown that, compared with leading brands, these boots provide excellent protection from both concussion and penetration injuries. In field trials, the boots proved their versatility, being used on both young and established horses in a variety of work from hacking to training gallops, flatwork to cross country.
