The SG-LX Winter Boot provides excellent grip on snowy and icy grounds. The sole comes with 6 high-quality spikes, specifically developed for Swiss Galoppers hoof boots. Each spike is screwed into the reinforced sole from below and additionally glued. The shock-absorbing and joint-gentle insole remains fully intact; rest assure our spikes do not cause pressure points.
While the SG-X covers most hoof shapes, the SG-LX is designed for slightly slimmer, longer hooves, pronounced bulbs and higher heels. Each SG-LX Kit comes with two sizes of extensions made of the same 100% recyclable, thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) the boot itself is made of. These extensions can be easily exchanged and adjusted to suit the individual shape of the hoof, heel position and size of bulb.
Swiss Galoppers hoof boots are manufactured in Lupfig, Switzerland. Our boots are injection molded and made of 100% recyclable, thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU). The sole has an extreme abrasion- and slip resistant profile that lasts up to approx. 1,200 km. The flexible, torsion-resistant insole prevents twisting. Joint-friendly due to its shock-absorbing effect. Heel, pastern and bulb are protected through ergonomic design and padding, providing a perfect fit for most hoof shapes.
