A.C.E. (Arch Circulation Enhancer)
The soft, ergonomically-designed cushions of the A.C.E. system reinforce the stimulation effect in
the arch of the foot by helping to increase blood circulation throughout the foot. The A.C.E. system
helps reduce fatigue in your feet when riding and walking.
Arch Cradle Steel Support™ is a combination of ergonomically-designed rubber walls on the upper
part of the outer sole and a steel shank by the arch. This combination helps to reduce strain on the
foot during long rides and walks.
ActivGuard is a breathable lightweight fabric that improves rider comfort. The material efficiently
conducts moisture away from the body, keeping you dry and comfortable. Anti-bacterial properties
counteract any bad odour. The garment will retain its color even after multiple washes.
Dirt-resistant properties make the garment easy to care for.
Boots with the Aergozone™ symbol have impact-absorbing technology in the heels and soles. This
technology consists of multi-layer EVA and gel pads which absorb the downward force and distribute
it out into the impact-absorbing components. The Aergozone™ system can reduce stress on your
feet, knees and back when walking. It is also useful for riding, as the front components help relieve
stress on the ligaments and joints in the knees, which often suffer during riding. The Aergozone™
system differs from most other impact-absorbing technologies currently on the market, as many
of these focus on the heel area only. The Aergozone™ system works on both the heel and the ball
of the foot.
A.R.C. Shape Technology
Leggings and chaps with A.R.C. Shape Technology have a special close-fitting, yet comfortable,
tailored design that fits snugly round the legs, giving a beautiful tailored look.
Comfort System™ consists of a soft and flexible neoprene material that is attached round the heel
and ankle section inside our footwear. The unique composition of the neoprene material helps to
keep the foot in a stable position. Comfort System™ therefore provides perfect comfort and support
for riding or walking.
ComfoTech was developed to keep you dry when out riding. This 100% polyester fabric with excellent
breathability effectively conducts moisture away from the skin to the outer layer, keeping you dry.

Thanks to its unique integral stretch capacity, Dura-Tech Stretch material can mould and adapt
itself to most shapes. Leggings and chaps made of Dura-Tech Stretch can cover up to three
“ordinary” leggings/chaps sizes, which is also ideal if you want to wear extra socks under leggings
in colder weather. Dura-Tech Stretch material is water-repellent, very soft and extremely flexible
This fabric has been treated with a high-quality breathable Finetex® coating for increased comfort.
HYDRO-Tx™ membrane is a waterproof, windproof and breathable membrane. Any perspiration
is released, while water and damp are kept out. This is possible because of the difference in molecule
size between water and vapor. The Hydro-Tx membrane’s unique structure and temperature
stability make it extremely flexible and versatile in humid and cold environments, ensuring that your
feet remain dry and warm in your boots.
Impact Protection System™
Footwear labeled with IPS™ has a built-in impact-absorbing cushion of double-layered EVA
(ethylene vinyl acetate) in the heel to provide increased impact-absorption capability. The IPS™
system consists of rubber walls with springy through channels that help distribute the downward
impact force from walking, together with the impact-absorbing double-layer EVA pad. The force
from the downward impact is distributed over a larger area and is substantially reduced.
Lace Lock Function™
Footwear equipped with the Lace Lock Function™ has a “locking” system on the last lace holder
that keeps the lacing in place even if the laces come undone.

protection against stains. It is also water-repellent. It offers breathable properties and is both
safe and gentle. For continuous, effective protection, you should apply a similar proofing agent

MST – Motion Stabilization Technology steel shank
The MST steel shank was developed from our original steel shank. It was specially produced with
a view to increasing stability of footwear when riding and walking. The MST steel shank also
has a unique S-shaped design. Thanks to this S-shape, the steel shank encircles the integrated
impact-absorbing system in the heel. This allows the impact-absorbing system to work to its
A very lightweight and heat-retaining breathable fleece material. Very quick-drying in order to
minimize loss of body heat. 100% polyester. Even after numerous washes, Polartec fleece will
retain its durability and insulating properties.
PORON®4000 is an excellent impact-absorbing material that is often used in jogging shoes and
especially in hiking boots, where cushioning is an important function. PORON®4000 also has ventilating
and anti-bacterial properties, making it an excellent addition to your shoes or riding boots.

cooler and more comfortable. Most stains can be removed by ordinary washing. The fabric will
remain soft and retain its breathability. The colors will retain their luster.
Scotchlite™ reflective material makes you more visible in the dark. It reflects back the light source
from headlamps, etc and projects a clear and bright reflection that drivers can spot from further
away. Consequently, drivers have more time to react.
The primary aim of the steel shank is to stabilize the boot so it cannot bend in the middle (neither
can a foot!). With the steel shank, the boot is forced to flex in front of the ball of the foot by
the toes, which is where the foot bends naturally. The Mountain Horse® stabilizing steel shank is
tempered at 850°C, which makes it extremely strong and durable. Shoes and boots used every
day in conditions that exceed ordinary walking should have an adapted steel shank to increase
stability when walking and also when riding, as the support from a steel shank can reduce foot
Stirrup Control System™
The Stirrup Control System™ helps to keep the stirrups in the correct position thanks to rubber
reinforcements on the outside of the shoe and the cross-grain pattern on the underside of the sole.
SCS+ has the same properties as SCS but it is also equipped with extra rubber studs in the crossgrain
sole pattern for improved grip.
Stirrup Control System 3
SCS3 is a unique system offering hitherto unsurpassed stability for riders and, at the same time,
preventing the boot from slipping forward in the stirrup. SCS3 is a pattern incorporated into the sole
of the boot and into the SCS3 stirrup tread. When these patterns mesh together, it increases support
and stability particularly when jumping, when the foot has a tendency to slide forwards or backwards,
or to come right out of the stirrup altogether. The rider can choose from several different
positions in the stirrup to suit their individual preference. Boots equipped with the Stirrup Control
System 3 can be used with most other stirrups and stirrup treads on the market and SCS3 stirrup
treads can be used with boots with standard soles. Please note, however, that the SCS3 system is
not fully functional in cases where soles without the SCS3 system are used.
Stretch Imitation Leather
Durable stretch imitation leather that stretches lengthways to give optimum fit and comfort for
riders. Machine washable.
Sympatex® & Jumptex™
Sympatex® is a breathable membrane that is also windproof and waterproof. It functions extremely
well in all weathers. It is very thin and keeps the water out, while millions of tiny pores release body
vapour. This is possible because of the difference in molecule size between water and vapour.
Perspiration is able to exit from the boot while water is kept out. Your feet will stay warm and dry in
