Tested to protect your horse in high-impact sports!

Equilibrium® believe that there isn’t another boot available at the moment which addresses the leg health issues of the horse in such detail.

Building on the huge success of Tri-Zone Allsports Boot, Equilibrium® introduces a new high Impact Sports Boot to the award winning Tri-Zone Airlite range.

The new Tri-Zone Airlite Impact Sports Boot from Equilibrium® uses the latest material technology to create a highly protective boot which is very light, flexible and breathable. It is the accumulation of years of research or testing with scientists, vets and professional riders.

Protects across a wide range of disciplines
Tri-Zone Airlite Impact Sports Boots have been designed and tested to protect the horses’ legs across a wide range of high impact sports such as cross country, racing, hunting, hunter trials, driving and polo.

Tri-Zone Airlite Impact Sports Boots are made up of 3 protective layers:

  • The inner layer is made from a soft impact absorbing EVA which is formed into pillows to provide maximum comfort – perforated to allow heat to evaporate from the horse’s skin
  • The middle layer is made from an EVA mesh which helps to absorb impact but also allows heat to escape freely from inside the boot
  • The outer strike pad areas are made from TPU which protects from penetration injuries

Protection testing

The horse’s leg is very vulnerable to injury because it has minimal tissue coverage. Even a minor knock can cause lameness. Tri-Zone Airlite Impact Sports Boots have been tested for both concussion and penetration protection at the levels of force experienced by a horse hitting a cross country fence at speed or striking in to itself. The tests prove that the Tri-Zone Airlite Impact Sports Boots will protect from penetration strikes to the most vulnerable areas of the leg as well as significantly reducing impact concussion.

Weight
Mother Nature designed horses’ legs to be lightweight and fast moving. That is why adding extra weight to a horse’s leg can cause it to tire more quickly, resulting in a loss of performance. Tri-Zone Airlite Impact Sports Boots weigh only 160-170 g per boot when dry and absorb very little water so they do not get heavy when wet. They even float on water they are so light.

Flexible
The joints in the horse’s leg play a key role in preventing injury by absorbing the concussive impact of jumping and galloping. It is important that boots do not interfere with the natural function of the joints. Tri-Zone Airlite Impact Sports Boots are very flexible both horizontally and vertically (up to 130 degrees of bend) so that they accommodate full range of joint movement.

Breathable
Overheating of the horse’s tendons can lead to long term tissue damage. It is vital that the horse’s natural cooling process of perspiration and evaporation is not impeded by wearing boots. Equilibrium Products uses an independent laboratory for test boots on how well they allow the horse’s leg to cool. Every layer of the Tri-Zone Airlite Impact Sports Boot is perforated with air holes with allow heat (in the form of sweat) to evaporate to the outside. Tests show that the Tri-Zone Airlite Impact Sports boot cools at a rate of 2.9°C per minute.

Additional features
Tri-Zone Airlite Impact Sports Boots feature a vertical hook strap which fits over the horizontal loop straps as an extra security feature to prevent straps becoming loose, even in muddy wet ground. The vertical hook strap has a handy grip tab for easy and quick boot removal.

Care instructions
Tri-Zone Airlite Impact Sports Boots can be washed in a washing machine (but not top loading washing machines with paddles). Close all the straps over and place in an old pillow case with the top tied. Do not dry in a tumble dryer or over direct heat as this will seriously damage the materials.

A highly-protective boot which is very light, flexible and breathable!

Using the latest material technology, Equilibrium Products has created a breathable, lightweight and highly protective sports boot suitable for a range of high impact sports.


The Tri-Zone Airlite Impact Sports boot is specifically designed and independently tested for high impact protection and suitable to use cross country, racing, hunting, hunter trials, driving and polo.

These incredibly lightweight boots weigh under 200 g wet or dry as the advanced materials used are designed to not absorb water. The EVA outer mesh layer and the soft pillowed lining is used for maximum protection against concussion whilst strategically positioned TPU guards protect the most vulnerable areas of the leg from penetration injuries. Each layer is perforated to prevent overheating the horse’s legs which may cause long-term tissue damage.

Equilibrium® say, “We are very excited to be launching the Tri-Zone Airlite Impact Sports boots. We have listened to horse owners concerns and have created a highly protective lightweight boot without compromising on the same breathability and flexibility factors as our other boots in the Tri-Zone Airlite range. We believe that there isn't another boot available at the moment which addresses the leg health issues of the horse in such detail."

Tested to be tough In addition to field trials, all boots in the Tri-Zone® Airlite range have been independently tested in a safety laboratory for their ability to protect against concussion and penetration injuries as well as their ability to allow horses’ legs to cool naturally. The boots are further tested for their flexibility to ensure that they do not interfere with horses’ natural movement. Additional notes Ethylene vinyl acetate (also known as EVA) is the copolymer of ethylene and vinyl acetate. The material has good clarity and gloss, barrier properties, low-temperature toughness, stress-crack resistance, water proof properties, and resistance to UV radiation. EVA has little or no odour. EVA rubber foam is the new environmentally-safe product. It has good cushioning, shock proofing, moisture-proofing, anti-rusting, and non-polluting and non-moisture absorbing features. EVA can be shaped according to different designs with better shockproof advantages than other traditional foam materials.

Water durable - closed-cell foam, non-water-absorbing, moisture-proof

Rot resistant - seawater, oil, acid and alkali durable; antibacterial, safe, odourless and non-polluting

Shockproof - good flexibility and anti-hardening; excellent shockproof and cushion capability

Thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPU) - a class of polyurethane plastics with many useful properties

  • excellent abrasion resistance
  • outstanding low-temperature performance
  • excellent mechanical properties, combined with a rubber-like elasticity
  • high shear strength
  • high elasticity
  • good oil and grease resistance
