Park City, Ontario―April 1, 2013―Phoenix Performance Products Inc. announces a new safety vest that will truly supersede the best selling safety vest in the world; the Eventer 1015 model under their Tipperary Equestrian line. The new Eventer Pro 3015TM model meets the ASTM Equestrian Vest Standard and is SEI Certified. It brings forward a similar look to the Eventer 1015 with more of an evolved approach on the construction, coverage and performance.
With the Tipperary Eventer Vests long standing fan base and the increasing awareness and requirements for certification standards Phoenix Performance took careful consideration to ensure that safety, performance, impact absorption, fit-mobility and ventilation were all key components when designing this new vest. More importantly they wanted to produce a vest that truly met the needs of their loyal fans and athletes. It came down to building a product that was comfortable, light-weight, easy to fit while providing the safety and coverage that’s needed.
“It’s been nearly 30 years since Tipperary pioneered the safety vest. We’ve been the world’s leader and the Eventer Pro 3015 is another example of our dedication to improving our products with leading edge safety for today’s equine athletes. This vest is by far the greatest design and technology to ever hit the equine world! It’s quite simply, revolutionary!”
– David H. Anderson, President & CEO of Phoenix Performance Products Inc.
The new Eventer Pro 3015 has an improved anatomical fit-mobility with patent pending EVOLUTION FOAMTM that conforms to each individual athletes body shape and size. The foams construction allows for air return circulation, cooling the body in high temperatures with specialized antibacterial agents that prevent the vest from odor build up. A new design pattern of double layer TECTONICTM foam plating moves and flexes with the rider without any separation or gapping. This plating works in conjunction with the LIVE SPINETM construction which provides increased impact protection while moving, flexing and mimicking the athletes movements. Vertical flex bars on the front and back of the vest provide a more customized fit along with a FLEX LACETM closure and torso cut that allows the vest to expand and contract with the athletes movements while offering easy quick fit adjustment with draw string and added side flap protection. Additional reflective piping is included in the vest for added safety and visibility for riders training on the road or in low light situations. Over all the look of the Eventer ProTM is esthetically pleasing, it combines functionality with comfort and complements the riders performance.
Phoenix Performance plans to launch the vest on April 25, 2013 at the Rolex 3 Day Event in Lexington Kentucky. Some of the Rolex competitors which include but are not limited to; Bruce Davidson, Jessica Phoenix, Peter Atkins, Kristi Nunninck, Robert Meyerhoff, Lindsay Oaks, Maddie Blackman, Kendal Lehari and Jolie Wentworth have elected to compete in the vest at Rolex. A select group of Tipperary Equestrian Dealers will be stocking limited quantities of the Eventer Pro (sizes YXS to TL in colours Black, Navy and Hunter Green) at the event. Due to limited quantities available customers can also order a vest at the event for a June delivery. The Eventer Pro will be available in all authorized Tipperary Equestrian retailers in June of 2013.
