To celebrate Scott Brash winning the Grand Slam of showjumping, Veredus have released the Grand Slam Carbon Gel Vento Fetlock Boots.
These fetlock boots have all the features of Carbon Gel Vento boots, enhanced with gold details to honour the brand's association with Scott Brash.
Veredus Vento fetlock boots have double ventilation to ensure the horse's legs are in optimum condition to reach his full potential.
This is achieved by the innovative sandwich of materials that make up the Vento boots.
The inner layer (in contact with the horse's leg) is a two-way stretch fabric for maximum comfort. The middle layer is AEROX micro-perforated neoprene - designed to facilitate the removal of heat.
The outer layer is a special 3D mesh ducted fabric, designed to facilitate the upward removal of heat. The shock resistant shell has an air inlet at the bottom and an extractor flue at the top.
The heat released from the horse's leg passes through the inner and neoprene layer and is then distributed in the 3D mesh ducted fabric. Fresh air enters through the air inlet as a result of the horse?s movements, and pushes the heat, accumulated in the ducted fabric, upwards to the outlet.
Ventilation is therefore horizontal - from the inside outwards - and vertical - from the bottom upwards: an innovative technology, never before tried.
The boots have a perfectly anatomical shape to ensure maximum comfort and perfect positioning on the horse's leg.
A carbon support inserted in the shell and a gel pad provide maximum protection, exceptional shock absorption and comfort for the fetlock - an area at particular risk of injury and bruising when show jumping.
The quick-close, adjustable elastic straps make this fetlock boot extremely practical to put on and remove, while providing a perfect fit for all shapes of leg, thus eliminating problems caused by too tight a fit or excessive pressure on the leg.
Special elastomers used in the hard wearing straps maintain constant tension over time and don't change their elasticity when wet. The undeformable Flextan tips on a stainless steel clasp allow extremely fast hooking and unhooking, even with one hand. The closure holes have a narrowing that guarantees a secure hold, avoiding the possibility of accidental unhooking during work or competition.
These Veredus Grand Slam boots are available in Black & Gold or Brown & Gold, sizes Medium (Full) or Large (Extra Full).
