The Veredus Grand Slam Carbon Gel is the gold edition boot, specially created by Veredus to celebrate ambassador Scott Brash’s victory in the Rolex Grand Slam of Showjumping. The boots combine high-tech features and innovation enhanced by gold-plated details, in genuine celebratory style.
The fetlock boot features double ventilation that ensures the horse’s legs is kept cool for optimal performance during training and competition. As part of the Nero Line range of Veredus products, the Grand Slam is an addition to the famous Carbon Gel collection.
The success of Carbon Vento lies in the innovative sandwich of materials that make up the boot’s padding. 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, the micro holes perpendicular to the leg are designed to facilitate the removal of heat while the outer layer is in special 3D mesh ducted fabric. The very wide mesh and the 3D fabric facilitate the upward removal of heat.
The shock-resistant shell has an air inlet at the bottom and an extractor outlet 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 animal’s movements, and pushes the heat, accumulated in the ducted fabric, upwards to the outlet grille. Ventilation is therefore horizontal – from the inside outwards – and vertical – from the bottom upwards.
