About 4 years ago, a little know brand called “Flex On” from France arrived on the equestrian stirrups scene. Over the last 4 years, we have seen Flex On completely revolutionize the stirrups space. We were proud to introduce this innovative brand to USA.
Flex On’s promise was to relieve the fatigue and soreness often experienced by riders (particularly those that ride 6 to 10 horses daily). However, that group is not exclusive. There are lots of riders with injured ankles, tired knees and backs.
To that end, Flex On has delivered on its promise. We have several customers that attest to the reduction in pain and soreness (in their knees, ankles and lower back), after switching to the Flex On Stirrups.
Initially, Flex On introduced the Composite Stirrups and the Aluminium Stirrups The simplicity of the stirrups was striking, in that they looked like normal and traditional stirrups. However, under the footbed of the stirrups, the specially designed elastomers provided the greatest degree of shock absorption. This was a new concept. It took us about a year or two to educate the consumers about the genuine benefit of this technology. From the start, the early-adopters were sold on this concept because it worked! This was not a gimmick. It was proven and tested science at work.
Next came the Aluminium version of the same stirrups. Everything stayed the same with the stirrups, with the exception of the frame . The frame is constructed of Aluminium versus Composite material. These stirrups are available in 3 different colors: Silver, Black and Grey. The shock absorbing performance of the Aluminium stirrups is the same as that of the Composite Stirrups. The Aluminium vs Composite comes down to personal choice and aethetics.
