Our Caparison Cheek Piece Pads are made from a blended EPDM foam. They are precision laser cut for a prefect fit, feel, and function. This combination of foam blends three types including EPDM with neoprene and SBR to create a high-quality general-purpose foam. This EPDM blended foam offers a superior resistance to water and wear. The foam is a closed-cell construction which helps restrict water, air, and gases from being absorbed into the foam.
Our recommendation when installing the cheek pad is to do a couple dry runs and then install the foam pad. Once installed it is difficult to remove in one piece.
*** A caparison is a cloth covering laid over a horse or other animal for protection and decoration. In modern times, they are used mainly in parades and for historical reenactments. A similar term is horse-trapper. The word is derived from the Latin caparo, meaning a cape.
