Prestige Italia has been synonymous with innovation since the beginning of its history, when the company developed a brand-new tree in a synthetic fiber.
WHAT IS IT? It is the technology applied to the tree consisting of an oval hole positioned in the center of the tree’s rear section, covered in elastic and breathable honeycomb fabric. In the X-Breath K, there is an additional hole in the front part of the tree.
BENEFITS The holes ensure greater breathability and minimize the overheating effects exerted by the saddle on both horse and rider. The rear hole makes the seat more comfortable by relieving the spinal column of the pressures it is usually subjected to. Additionally, saddles with X-Breath technology are lighter.
WHAT IS IT? The CPS or “COCCYX PROTECTION SYSTEM” is a new technology applied to the tree consisting of three membranes injected into its back section. Two on the sides in the area where the rider’s ischial bones are resting, one softer in the center where the seating position generates more load on the spine.
BENEFITS These membranes shock absorb all stresses and movements while protecting the rider’s ischial bones, coccyx and back. They have been created considering both men’s and women’s anatomy.
WHO IS IT FOR?
WHAT IS IT? It is a technology applied to the tree consisting of two membranes positioned in the rear part of the tree, where the rider’s ischial bones rest.
BENEFITS The membranes help increasing the comfort and stability of the rider. In the female rider’s case, the sense of comfort and stability is even more evident on the trees that provide a wider seat in the back, such as those developed for the X-D2, X-Perience and X-Contact K models (Unisex-effect).
WHO IS IT FOR?
WHAT IS IT? LPF or “LIGHT PERFRORMANCE FIT” panels consist of a shell made in 3D fabric/Airnet and a foam sheet, the flocking is made of Dacron, a synthetic fiber.
BENEFITS This type of panel is light, elastic and simply adjustable, furthermore it adapts easily to the morphology of the modern horse.
This panel combines the reduced thickness and close-contact sensation typical of latex panels with the shock-absorbing and highly adaptable properties of a flocked panel.
WHAT IS IT? The RP or “Relax and Performance” is an innovative technology applied to Prestige girths. It consists of a round panel connected by a mobile joint to a special girth. The panel is characterised by a round contour made of soft material that creates an air cushion between the horse’s sternum and the girth.
BENEFITS It allows the girth to follow all the horse’s movements, eliminating any friction between the girth and belly of the horse; the pressure is distributed evenly over a larger surface area; the particular shape of the panel creates an air cushion that eliminates pressure on the solar plexus.
