The Veredus Carbon Gel Absolute Fetlock Boots showcase a new generation in jumping protection for your horse from the Italian boot specialists.

With a whole new design and shell, they have an improved anatomical shape to perfectly correspond to the contours of the horse’s limbs, without creating pressure or limiting movement.

The outer shell is made from Bayer polyurethane, which is highly resistant, flexible and not affected by temperatures.

Meanwhile, the anti-shock carbon and nitrex gel insert is five times denser than the shell. These two parts of the boot form a single piece – there is no glue or stitching, resulting in an extremely protective, durable and flexible boot.

The carbon and gel protective surface is wider and more extensive than previous Veredus models to offer even more protection.

Double ventilation helps to ensure your horse’s legs are in optimum condition to reach their full potential.

The heat released from the horse’s legs passes through an AEROX micro-perforated neoprene layer - designed to facilitate the removal of heat. This is then distributed in the 3D mesh ducted fabric and out through the air ducts so the ventilation is everywhere.

These boots are certified with the rigorous and authoritative procedures of Ricotest. 

 The test was carried out by subjecting the Carbon Gel Absolute to impact and abrasion tests simulating the impacts of the rear horseshoe on the flexor tendon area and of the adjacent horseshoe on the fetlock area.

THE IMPACT TEST

The impact test is used to verify the impact resistance and absorption capacity of the materials.

Two differently shaped tools were used for the impact test: a 60 ° V-wedge and a hemisphere. The applied energy was 25 and 50 joules, the same that is used in tests for motorcyclists' back protectors.

THE ABRASION TEST

The abrasion test was done by placing a portion of the shell on a sandpaper roll using the same type of test that is done on safety materials. To pass this test, the material loss must be less than 150 cubic mm. In the case of Carbon Gel Absolute, the volume loss was 29 cubic mm, five times less than the minimum requirement!

THE MATERIALS

The materials were also analyzed from a chemical point of view, verifying the absence of potentially harmful compounds such as phthalates.

Quick release tipped elastic straps with a choice of four pre-set closure positions makes the boots extremely practical to put on and remove, and allow them to fit a range of different leg shapes.

The Veredus Carbon Gel Absolute Fetlock Boots are available in Black or Brown, sizes Medium (Full) or Large (Extra Full).
