The XC Color Elite boots feature a conical fit which will not inhibit the horse's movement. They are constructed from a super strong but lightweight rip-stop TPU material that is permanently fused to the breathable inner mesh fabric. Inside the boot is a four-way flexion TPU shield designed to flex with the horse’s movement but form a hard barrier during impact. In addition to the flexible TPU shield, we have added 2 mm of ARTi-LAGE™foam directly behind the TPU shield. ARTi-LAGE™ is a proprietary material soft and pliable in its normal state but able to change its molecular structure to harden when struck, deflecting impact away from the strike point and dispersing the energy.
XC Color Elite front boots have an ARTi-LAGE™ barrier in the front and a Flexible TPU shield in the back of the boot protecting the front of the cannon bone from bruising and the back of the leg from potential overreach. Our hind boots have a double barrier of ARTi-LAGE™and Flexible TPU shield in front of the boot, providing unsurpassed protection for the canon bone.
The XC Color Elite Series also feature an all new bio-foam interior to keep your horse's legs clean, cool and comfortable. Due to the inherent qualities of the Bio Foam, heat build-up is prevented and air can effectively circulate the leg. The new design repels water and dust while maintaining lightweight comfort and protection over all kinds of terrain. With the additional coat of Majyk’s new "Forever Clean" breathable coating to the outer shell, clean up time is cut in half as mud, dirt, and debris slide right off with a quick rinse.
Our XC Color Elite boots were designed to:
- Provide superior impact protection with a flexible TPU shield and layers of ARTi- LAGE™ foam
- Be breathable and remain cool during lengthy, strenuous exercise
- Stay in place (no turning)
- Resist moisture penetration (water repellent)
- Clean up easily with a simple hose or cool hand wash (no machine wash or dry)
The XC Color Elite boots were worn by Majyk team riders Boyd Martin, Phillip Dutton and Lauren Kieffer at the 2016 Olympics.
As a general rule of thumb:
Small fits most horses 14. to 15.2
Medium fits most horses 15.3 hands to 16.3 hands
Large fits most horses 17+ hands
Please note that our XC boots are sized proportionally to fit front and hind legs. If your horse is a medium size in front he/she should be medium size in hind unless the hind legs have unusually long canon bones.
