The stirrup bow is made of aluminum, while the opening arm is made of a special polyamide material. The stirrup pad is made of polyamide, with stainless steel tread. When you experience a fall, this stirrup is designed to release your foot easily without causing injury. Olson's highly recommends this safety stirrup as another line of defense against injury. Very popular with our cross country competitors.
Unique, stress-actuated locking and release mechanism located between the lower end of the outer, pivoting stirrup arm and the foot support plate/tread. Easy and reliable “one-click” re-engagement of the stirrup locking and release mechanism once triggered.
The Spring Effect:
Due to its design and construction which is based on flexible polymers, the stirrup is less rigid and much more comfortable feeling to the rider than conventional products. The springing stirrup bow and foot support assembly is capable of effectively absorbing and compensating for short-term and sudden impacts exerted through the rider’s weight from the top, e. g. during posting, jumping or hacking. Considerable benefits for the rider: strong relief of foot soles, ankles, knees and hips
