WTS Flex Heel Front
WTS Flex Heel – Flexibility and support for more performance!
The back half of the Flex Heel shoe, made of steel 52, is only 5mm thick and grooved, providing high flexibility. It allows for vertical hoof mechanism despite shoeing. The Flex Heel element made of 90 Shore soft polyurethane provides strong shock absorption. Riding out every day is no problem thanks to its high abrasion resistance. With the Flex Heel element, the frog is in contact with the ground, naturally supporting the back of the hoof. The Flex Heel element can be grinded to the desired shape and angle. Although the rear of the Flex Heel shoe is thicker and has a wide polyurethane bar, the front and the rear halves of the shoe have the exact same weight. The foot and the shoe are then balanced. At the toe, the shoe doesn’t provide shock absorption, so that traction forces are transmitted directly. The traction and mobility at the toe are the same as for the WTS Solid.
Flex Heel Front for navicular, problems at the insertion of the deep digital flexor tendon, strain of the check ligament of the DDFT and for palmar foot pain.
