Just when you thought there could never be a better product for equine leg protection than the SMBII, Professional's Choice outdoes itself again! Professional's Choice invented the very concept of equine leg protection and the SMBII has been the undisputed leader since it came on the market. There have been many, many efforts to copy it, but none have ever come close. The creation of the SMB Elite cements the company’s status as the top innovator of equine protection, and affirms what has long been suspected - that only Professional's Choice could equal, or surpass its own product!
Professional’s Choice Sports Medicine Boots are the most thoroughly tested and scientifically researched performance boots in the world. Extensive research and experiments have been conducted at the University of Wisconsin, University of Minnesota and Oklahoma State University. The results of scientific research show that Professional's Choice Sports Medicine Boots absorb and dissipate an average of over 26% of the negative energy from hoof concussion without restrictions in gate, at any speed. In addition, the SMB addresses the entire suspensory system of the equine limb, providing excellent support to all tendons and ligaments.
Contouring on both the inner and outer sides of the SMB Elite not only ensures a perfect, glove-like fit, but also keeps the dirt out. This boot is lightweight and multi-layered with an exclusive limestone based neoprene exterior and Ultrashock lining providing 360 degrees of protection, safeguarding the cannon bone, tendons, fetlock and soft tissue. The uniquely designed suspensory strap stretches upon each impact of the hoof, allowing full ankle movement and helps to eliminate hyperextension of the fetlock. The distinctive angle of this strap also guarantees proper application ensuring the boot provides maximum protection.
Professional's Choice asked some very prominent, and demanding professionals to field-test its new boot, such as Craig Schmersal, who commented, “Professional's Choice has raised the bar on protective boots for my horses; there is no one else in the industry that has a boot comparable to this!” while Ted Robinson called the SMB Elite, “The real deal.” Other rave reports came from Britt Bockius who said, “I didn’t think they could improve the SMBII but they did.” And Al Dunning called it, “The best, most innovative boot I’ve ever used.”
Once again, the Professional's Choice motto, "The more comfortable the horse, the better the performance." has been made a reality. Professional's Choice is unsurpassed in the arena of equine performance products and the SMB Elite is without a doubt the best performance equine protective boot ever produced.
