Veredus Carbon Gel Absolute - Certified by RICOTEST

Ricotest is the first Italian Research, Testing and CE Certification institute of footwear, gloves, clothing, impact protectors and general Personal Protective Equipment for work, sport and outdoor. The Ricotest laboratories conduct mechanical and chemical tests on a wide range of products to ensure compliance with the applicable standard.

Veredus is the only horse protection manufacturer to certify its products with the rigorous and authoritative procedures of Ricotest.

Veredus Carbon Gel Absolute front and rear boots have been subjected to impact and abrasion tests that guarantee their protection and safety qualities.

The test was carried out by subjecting the Carbon Gel Absolute to impact and abrasion tests simulating the impacts of the rear horseshoe on the flexor tendon area and of the adjacent horseshoe on the fetlock area.

The Impact Test
The impact test is used to verify the impact resistance and absorption capacity of the materials. Two differently shaped tools were used for the impact test: a 60 ° V-wedge and a hemisphere. The applied energy was 25 and 50 joules, the same that is used in tests for motorcyclists' back protectors.

The Abrasion Test
The abrasion test was done by placing a portion of the shell on a sandpaper roll using the same type of test that is done on safety materials. To pass this test, the material loss must be less than 150 cubic mm. In the case of Carbon Gel Absolute, the volume loss was 29 cubic mm, five times less than the minimum requirement.

The Materials
The materials were also analysed from a chemical point of view, verifying the absence of potentially harmful compounds such as phthalates.

Veredus Carbon Gel Absolute Boot

The Veredus Carbon Gel Absolute Boot by Marcus Ehning
This boot has been developed to provide the very best protection, by extending the protective surface of the gel and carbon from the flexor tendon to the fetlock in an innovative inverted Y shape.

The carbon outer shell is not only ultra-lightweight, it is also highly resistant to shocks especially in the areas of the tendon and fetlock, which are more at risk of knocks and bangs from other legs.
The Nitrexgel membrane is able to dissipate impacts by over 40% ensuring additional safety of your horses’ legs.

Specifically designed for show jumping, these boots collect all the legacy and characteristics of the Vento line, whilst maintaining the characteristic double ventilation. This double ventilation along with the Aerox micro perforated neoprene inner ensures an exceptional degree of breathability and comfort.

Wider, stronger, safer - the Absolute is the new frontier of absolute protection signed by Marcus Ehning.

The new Veredus Carbon Gel Absolute is available in Black or Brown, in sizes Medium or Large with a price of £215 for the front tendon boots and £169 for the hind fetlock boots.
