Being tight to the tack is the goal of every rider and Kerrits’ revolutionary Griptek™ fabric gets riders there faster. Griptek™ was created for pros and amateurs alike, offering additional security in the seat, leg or hands, where riders need it most.
“Griptek™ fabric is more environmentally-friendly than using leather,” said Kerri Kent, owner and designer for Kerrits Equestrian Apparel. “You can feel good that no animals were harmed in the creation of the garment. And unlike leather, after washing, Griptek™ looks brand new.”
Kerrits first introduced GripTek™ in the original Sit Tight, using GripTek™ for the fullseat. The response was overwhelming. Riders loved the “stick like glue” security this tight offered. It wasn’t long before the requests for gloves and half chaps made of this revolutionary fabric started rolling in. The GripTek™ Glove and GripTek™ Gaitor were born!
The GripTek™ Glove is lightweight and breathable featuring an incredible no-slip grip so you can keep contact with your reins even when wet from horse sweat or rain. The water repellant Griptek™ Gaitors secure your lower leg while riding, keeping you comfortable and dry no matter what the weather.
The Sit Tight Supreme, Sit Tight Lite, Griptek™ Glove and Griptek™ Gaitor are all offered year-round as staples in the Kerrits collection.
