- For the first time Prestige presents an ultralight saddle, its “X-Breath”.
The feature that is instantly striking is the large aperture in the seat. It takes the form of an oval hole located in the centre of the seat and has a dual function:
- a ventilation function for better air circulation, so cooling both horse and rider
- a therapeutic function, in that the anatomically shaped hole relieves pressure on the coccyx.
The hole is covered by a special ultra-elastic honeycomb material that increases the comfort of the seat.
There are also holes and apertures on the saddle flaps and underflaps, too, intended to make for greater lightness and for improved ventilation. The saddle has new ultralight panels devised applying X-Technology.
The conventional stuffed panels are replaced by new panels made of the same synthetic material, used as stuffing, and by a new honeycomb material that is highly elastic and takes over from felt and foamed material. The effect obtained is an appreciable reduction in the thickness of the panels. At the same time stability is retained as, too, the comfort felt by the horse along its back.
