The Knee Tendon Boots Velcro have a tough outer shell casing which is styled in an extremely light yet strong TPU to protect against impact, whilst the tendon and fetlock areas are both reinforced with D3O shock absorbing molecules* for ultimate protection. Laboratory tests have shown that the boots absorb impact over 50% better than any other boot currently on the market, with the ability to disperse a heavy blow equivalent to that which would actually break a human bone. The tendon area of the boot features intelligent ventilation holes to help prevent legs and tendons overheating, whilst the neoprene lining is also perforated, making these boots incredibly breathable, as well as offering excellent cushioning against the skin.
The streamlined and additional edge is an extended neoprene lining that covers the inside of the knee and protects against cuts or other injuries. The outside of the neoprene is reinforced with a soft rubber shell making the Knee Tendon Boots ideal for horses that tend to get injured within the knee area. The extended piece fits very well against the knee and has no Velcro fastening, therefore this boot still looks very elegant.
The tendon boots also feature a higher cut out design than traditional tendon boots to allow total freedom of movement around the pastern area, when the horse is jumping. Consideration is also paid to giving optimum freedom and comfort to the splint bone, so that the horses are able to flex the knee without interference. The tendon boots feature an open front and a unique Loop Velcro closure which makes it very easy to close these boots and adjust the size.
These boots sustain the washing machine at 30°, no dryer. After cleaning these boots you can use the Kentucky Horsewear Boot Spray which makes them look shiny and brand new!
*D3O shock absorbing molecules: This clever material locks on impact and then disperses the blow returning to its former pliable self immediately. The material is extremely light.
