    Matrix Ergonomic All Purpose Hex Pro-Impact Half Pads - Coolback


    Matrix Ergonomic All Purpose Hex Pro-Impact Half Pads with Coolback® bottom lining are formulated to withstand the rigors of equestrian use. Excellent recovery after use and washing. Its consistent quality, breathability, density and thickness gives durability and great concussion protection. Provides maximum protection every time you sit in the saddle.

    Matrix Hex Pro-Impact Half Pad Series:
    This pad has the ergonomic design and high tech materials of the Matrix Half Pad - but has the addition of high density Hex Poron® Hex XRD™. This is built into the top of the pad at key points - where the saddle applies concentrated pressure. It is more than TWICE the density of the Matrix standard high density XRD™. This offers a significantly great improvement on the ultra-thin, ultra-light concussion protection.

    It is also perfect for riders who prefer not to have to swap inserts.

    Materials:
    The material features a linear quilt of etc™ fabric, with breathable/wickable batting and polycotton twill bottom. This is an innovative fabric that provides non-slip, anti-friction surface, keeping your saddle in position - secure and stable. It is stain-resistant, easy to clean (machine-washable), and provides maximum moisture and heat removal.

    There are six (6) sections of Poron Hex XRD™ placed strategically at key points. The hex shape of these sections create air channels for increased breathability and heat dispersal. It includes Microban® for antimicrobial/antifungal protection that won't break down or dissipate over time.

    This pad is available with a rear roll for a beautiful finished look but may also be ordered without the rear roll.  Choose your size and rear roll option above.

    Available in Small (16-16 1/2"), Medium (17-17 1/2") and Large (18-18 1/2")
    Made in the USA.
    Two (2) types of Half Pad Liners to suit your Hex Pro-Impact Pads also available on this website - Schooling Liners, Show Liners (click links).

    1. About the T³ System:
    The T3 system is an innovative approach to equipment manufacturing. The Matrix Saddle Pad line is part of this system that integrates the latest ergonomic research with the most popular time-tested features. It marks a transformation in the design of products for the art, sport, and science of riding.
    It is a process where comfort, style, and performance are engineering into the product systematically, from the inside-out. It is based on new insights into the interactive dynamics of equine physiology.

    Matrix pads are proudly made in the USA. 90% of the materials used in the pads are also made in the USA.

    2. About the Materials (Sheepskin, Woolback®, Coolback®).
       Sheepskin:

    • 100% Australian Sheepskin - tanned in New Zealand
    • eco-friendly, environmentally-safe tanning process - minimizes toxic or harmful chemicals
    • merino-cross hides - perfect density to create the ideal pile - resilient, durable, cushioning
    • over 1" pile provides the best protection with closest contact possible in a natural hide
    • high breathability (live fiber) because air passes through the hollow fur fiber
    • consumer-safe - can be used in medical and infant-care industries
    • has earned the AWI Woolmark logo through meeting stringent testing and specifications

      Woolback®:

    • 100% virgin wool provides superior moisture wicking/heat dispersal
    • wool blended with small % polyester - creating resilient pile, durability
    • highly breathable - air circulates within the pile and passes with ease through the woven backing
    • 1" pile = ideal density + thickness - for concussion protection and comfort
    • easy to clean - machine washable, dryer safe
    • made in the USA

      Coolback®:

    • 100% polyester orthopedic fleece - specially formulated to withstand the rigors of equestrian use
    • consistent quality - no variations as is common in natural hides
    • superior breathability - air circulates within the pile and passes with ease through the woven backing
    • 1" super resilient pile = ideal density + thickness - for concussion protection
    • excellent recovery over long-term use and washing - provides maximum protection every time you sit in the saddle
    • easy to clean - machine washable, dryer safe
    • can be bleached (use bleach for colored fabrics on colored fleece)
    • made in the USA

    3. The Technology (Poron® XRD™, Poron® XRD™ Density, ETC™ Fabric).
    Poron® XRD™

       Poron® XRD™ with Microban® antimicrobial protection is high performance open-cell foam - offering the best protection from repeated shock absorption.
    When an object comes in contact with the foam, XRC™ immediately firms and absorbs 90% of the energy. This creates a protective shield that absorbs the impact.
    The foam then returns to a submissive state where it remains flexible and non-restrictive.
    • air-permeable open cells - resist collecting moisture and perspiration on skin surface
    • the flex of the material allows free circulation of air
    • perforated Poron XRD™ further ventilates the material - provides better heat and moisture management
    • Microban® inhibits bacteria, mold, mildew
    Return to Top.


     
    Poron® XRD™ is more than twice the density of the standard Pro-Impact, significantly improving the ultra-thin, ultra-light concussion protection. It absorbs and controls kinetic energy to diminish vibration, reduce fatigue, and enhance stability for the rider. The hex shape creates air channels for increased breathability and heat dispersal.
    Return to Top.

    Poron® XRD™ and Density
    The density of foam is measured in pounds per cubic foot (pcf).
    Standard foams: the denser the foam, the heavier it is.
    With Poron® XRD™ the molecular structure = high level of impact absorption (even at lower densities).
    This allows for development of ultra-lightweight inserts that protect the horse, but doesn't add unnecessary weight like other pads with gels and memory foams.
    T³ inserts use Poron® with a density of 12 pcf. Hex XRD™ is 22 pcf.

    ETC™ Fabric

    The advanced technology of Etc™ fabric creates a non-slip but anti-friction surface.
    Usually "non-slip" depends on friction for grip.
    Friction creates heat.
    Etc™ minimizes heat buildup by providing a non-slip surface that grips, but has anti-friction properties.
    ETC™ Fabric is more stain resistant than poly/cotton. Poly/cotton is the traditional fabric used for saddle pads.
    Etc™ washes easily ad well. Machine washable, dryer safe. Can be bleached (use color safe bleach for colors).
    Made in the USA.
