Flex-On Safe'On Safety Stirrups
New safety stirrup version of Flex-on's famous stirrups, designed to release on the side in the event of a serious fall, and then be pushed back together. Based on the same design as other Flex-on stirrups scientifically proven to provide help with riding position and reduce strain on the leg muscles and joints. These have to be tried to be believed...
Normally stocked in the popular "All black" color, but also available to custom order in any of a number of frame & elastomer colors (see product photos & "customization options" below).
Why we chose them:
- Lightweight: strong but lightweight frame uses hi-tech design and polyamide composites with steel core
- Innovative balance: clever offset and skewed stirrup-leather slot, plus carefully designed multi-inclination footbed, help create the ideal position for rider's leg and foot
- Shock absorbing: Elastomer shock absorbers supporting the footbed plus flexibility built into the frame help absorb shocks and vibration
- Ultra-grip footbed: small studs embedded in the stirrup tread grip the boot to ensure excellent stability of ride and connection with the horse, without damaging boots.
- Color options: can be ordered in a variety of color combinations - e.g. to match your riding colors (see below)
Note: As with any "Safety" stirrup, no absolute guarantee can be given that the stirrup will release when necessary under all circumstances, nor that it will not release during normal riding if put under extreme strain.
Flex-on offer a wide range of customization options:
- Frame/elastomer colours: These stirrups are available in several frame colors; in addition the rubber elastomers under the footbed can be ordered in a variety of colors to provide a colorful accent (for available colors & examples, see product images). Any color combination can be requested as a special order - lead-time is usually 1-3 weeks. To order, choose the "Custom" color option and specify your required frame and elastomer colors in the box provided for special order details on the basket page when checking out.
- Custom inserts: All Flex-on stirrups are supplied with Flex-on's standard black inserts, with the "-on" element of the logo colored to link to the elastomer color. As an alternative to these standard inserts, custom decorative inserts can be ordered as an additional item, and are easy to swap over. Choose from a huge variety of magnet stickers.
- Footbed surround color : The footbeds described above are always black. The surround that the footbed is set into can be black or light grey composite on the Balance stirrups. Our "All black" stock stirrups come with black surrounds, please specify the surround color for custom orders.
Ordering custom options: Choose the "custom" option for any special order requirements - eg any elastomer or foot tray colors other than our standard black. Please specify your custom requirements in the notes box provided at checkout. For any colors other than black, lead-times are typically 1-3 weeks
Footbed size: 4 ¾"
Due to their special asymmetric design, these stirrups come with distinct left and right sides, marked "R" and "L" on the frame
