Exoskeleton tendon boots from Cryochaps protect against strikes, whilst minimising the build-up of heat in the horse’s lower leg. The main strike areas of the horse’s front legs have been studied and Cryochpas have created maximum protection in these specific areas with a lightweight armour.
The Exoskeleton tendon boot is able to withstand high and repeated impact, with maximum durability. Strike areas are fully protected by both the external armour and internal materials, which are designed for the greatest shock absorption. The materials are soft and forgiving against the leg so they do not rub. The boot can deform under sudden or sustained impact and revert to its original dimensions without damage, providing ultimate shock absorption.
The boot does not hold water or sweat, which keeps the boot lightweight during intense exercise and conforms to FEI regulations.
The boots have been impact tested and compared to similar leading exercise boots. Cryochaps claim that when they are hit with a large force, less force is transmitted through the Exoskeleton to the horse’s leg, than any other exercise boot.
Cryochaps Exoskeleton Tendon Boots are designed to be used in any discipline, they are great for dressage, jumping, hacking and general wear.
