ÉireComposites wins JEC 2016 Innovation Award

An equestrian saddle developed by ÉireComposites and its partner BUA saddles won the JEC Innovation Award for sports and leisure. The saddle promises greater comfort for both horse and rider, enabling both of them to move freely and without effort, whether the horse is walking, trotting or galloping. The cantilevered tree is made from a thermoplastic composite material, making an economical, water resistant, lightweight (weighing just 4kg, 6kg less than traditional saddles) robust saddle. The award was presented to Kenneth O’Toole from ÉireComposites at the JEC Conference in Paris on March 8th 2016.
