The RADIUS CLIP SYSTEM proves itself time and time again. So it’s no wonder that it is this system that has gained popularity in recent year. The main difference with the Olympic Clip System is that with the Radius Clip System, extra material is added to the base material of the shoe. The clip is formed from this extra material. With this extra addition of material, the clip ends up being positioned completely on the outside, the rim (radius), of the shoe. The radius is nicely tapered and has more than enough material at the base. If there is any further forging, naturally this will not adversely affect the support surface of the horseshoe. An added advantage is that the shoe can be fitted directly. Therefore, little or no material needs to be removed from the hoof wall to make the shoe fit.
