Designed for Riders - Made for Comfort
ULTIMATE GRIP + TRACTION
Contrace™ IceLock™ soles stand for functionality and style. The durable outsoles provide outstanding grip and traction on all kinds of unpredictable terrain. The outline of the sole is straight and modern. The profile offers additional grip, especially through the use of IceLock 3S. IceLock 3S is a rubber fiberglass mixture, which offers increased grip (up to + 400%) on slippery and icy surface. The shoes use our polyamide shank, as well as our OrthoLite™ insoles. Waterproof models use a VILDONA ™ Puratex membrane from Germany. You will find Contrace™ IceLock™ soles in all our winter shoes of the performance series.
Since IceLock™ was introduced as the first IceLock sole in 2008, IceLock™ has been continuously improved and developed to its world leading performance level. Hypergrip’s IceLocks are distinctly different than other anti-slip soles and offer the best results compared to the competition. IceLock 3S soles offer a rubber compound, which provides superior grip on wet and icy surface.
Important: IceLockTM soles are developed for all seasons! They support riders in all kind of extreme conditions,
but also in everyday life, without losing the classic riding boot look.
How does IceLockTM work? Micro-fiberglass filaments are electrostatically aligned in the rubber compound,
creating a slip-stopping surface tension.
Why do you need IceLockTM? Our soles help the rider to be stable in the stirrups as well as on the ground, in slippery, wet and icy conditions. IceLock 3S soles provide up to 40% better grip on wet surface, than conventional riding soles.
And on icy ground, even up to 400% better grip.

ULTIMA RS™ stands for maximum riding sport. These high-quality riding shoes offer our best sole system, the ULTIMA RS™ Technology, as well as a high quality premium leather. ULTIMA RS™ soles come with unique features. The durable rubber is highly resilient and shock-absorbing. In addition, the integrated EVA cushioning foam in the heel (shock absorption system) and the OrthoLite™ insoles provide excellent comfort. As comfortable as sneakers. The 4-way stitching technique guarantees a high durability of the shoes. The integrated polyamide shank and the extra grip in the forefoot enable highest performance and stability in the stirrups. The shank is made of thermoplastic and is therefore not only light, but also extremely strong. The rider wins better balance and an improved direct contact with the horse. The sole construction also prevents back and joint pain. In waterproof models, we are using a high quality German waterproof membrane made by VILDONA™.
OrthoLite™ insoles can be found only in the world’s best footwear brands (check out www.OrthoLite.com).
OrthoLite™ is known for comfort and best functionality:
Breathable for a cooler foot – OrthoLite’s® insoles are made with open-cell foam, allowing air to circulate around the foot, keeping your foot cooler inside the shoe.
Moisture management – The unique open cell structure of OrthoLite™ also creates a moisture management system inside the shoe by moving moisture away from the foot leaving the foot drier. When the foot is removed from the shoe any remaining moisture dries very quickly due to the airflow allowed by the open cell network in the foam.
Long term cushioning – Our unique spring-back technology means your insole will retain over 95% of its thickness over time and won’t flatten out.
Anti-microbial agents – OrthoLite™ contains a patented anti-microbial formulation to fight fungus, bacteria and odor in the shoe.
The EPA/FDA approved anti-microbial is added during formulation so that it is linked to the foam and will not wear off over time.
Lightweight – OrthoLite™ is extremely lightweight providing optimum performance without adding weight to the shoe.
Washable – Just throw your dirty insoles in your washing machine and they come out like new.
