The Acavallo GP close contact Classic Gel pad cut out sheepskin with Dri-Lex combines the non-slip and shock-proof properties of Acavallo Gel pads with the the breathable properties of Dri-lex. The whole is combined with a partial sheepskin coating on the lower part and a tapered shape that guarantees a deep contact of the pad to the horse’s back.
A great strength is to avoid any unwanted movement of the saddle in any direction: forward, back and sideways.
Furthermore, the Gel is able to compensate for the small imperfections of the horse’s back, making it suitable also for the backs that are a bit more “rounded”.
The lower part of the pad is coated with Dri-Lex, a fabric that combines hydrophobic and hydrophilic fibers in a composite structure that is unique in the industry. The inner layer stays dry, while the outer layer acts as a micro reservoir for sweat, and the moisture is literally vaporized.
Dri-Lex fabrics are engineered to enhance nature’s work. They rapidly move moisture through performance equipment to keep the body dry and comfortable
The pad, furthermore, is partially covered with Acavallo Sheepskin, a natural material that does not cause allergies, very soft and delicate, and perfectly suited to prevent chafing, abrasions and blisters.
The benefits of the Sheepskin, combined with the Gel, allow to give a great boost from the aesthetic point of view to the traditional pads Acavallo in Gel.
The Acavallo® Classic Gel is hypoallergenic, non-toxic and does not react negatively in contact with the skin, characteristics that allow the pad to be used directly in contact with it.
The Gel can also be cut and then adapted, if necessary, to each type of saddle.
