The Burioni Best Condition saddle pad is made of TT and Merino wool fiber.
It has got a therapeutic gel impression which has got anti slip and shock absorbing characteristics.
The main feature of TT material is that there is a hollow space in their structure, so that a perfect passage of air is allowed both through the material itself and mostly through the hollow space, this hollow space allows perfect skin perspiration and guarantees a very efficient natural heat insulation. Apart from this, TT material has other important features:
It’s HYGIENIC, their peculiar airy structure not only strongly reduces sweating, it also avoids humidity from staying inside the material, thus reducing bacteria proliferation as well. In order to obtain even better results specific antibacterial treatments can be made;
It is WASHABLE, thanks to the composition of their structure, not only are they easily washable, they also dry very quickly; It is RESISTANT, thanks to their 100% PES composition; It is RECYCLABLE, feature that must be highly considered now in order to protect the environment.
The characteristics of Merino wool fiber are:
HYGROSCOPICITY: many amino acids of wool absorb water; i.e., they attract and incorporate water vapor in the structure of the fiber. This water vapor is then expelled under drier environmental conditions.
TRANSMISSION OF WATER VAPOR (transpiration): the ability of wool to absorb the maximum quantity of humidity is exactly what is needed to maintain skin moisture at an even level. Humidity will be evaporated through the open-pored structure of the wool fabric. In case of heavy perspiration, wool fabric (but not fibers) absorbs only a part of the liquid, which then evaporates on the skin to produce a pleasant, fresh feeling.
WATERPROOFNESS: we are faced with what might seem a paradox. While on the one hand wool is the most hydrophilic fiber that exists, thanks to the hygroscopicity we spoke of above, on the other hand it is highly waterproof thanks to the waxy, fatty material that coats the surface of the fibers. This means that wool naturally repels stains.
RESISTANCE TO DIRT: wool resists dirt for two reasons. First, it has a low level of static electricity and doesn’t attract dust. Second, it has a waterproof surface.
THERMAL INSULATION: this is provided by the air that remains trapped in the spaces between the fibers.
Available in black, royal blue and red.
NOTE!! Although not illustrated in images - ALL Burioni saddle pads are manufactured with girth straps.
