Flex On Aluminium Shock Absorber Stirrups are a revolutionary concept with a classical foundation. The Flex On Stirrups from Flex On are made of aeronautical-grade Aluminium. The design of these stirrups incorporates “elastomers” which enable shock absorption.
Size and Dimensions
The Flex On Aluminium Stirrups are available in only 1 Size. Dimensions:
Inside Width: 4.75″ (12 cms)
Total Width: 5.5″ (14 cms)
Length : 2.75″ (7 cms)
Protect Your Knees and Back
Give your knees and ankles the relief they deserve. The shock absorbers efficiently dampen the impact from landing.
Aluminium vs Green Composite
Flex On produces two different versions of the shock absorbing stirrups: Aluminium vs Green Composite. The performance of the shock absorbers
The Inclined Ultra Grip serves two advantages:
- The “spikes” (Ultra Grip) made of hardened steel enable a non-slip grip. The “spikes” grip to the bottom of your boots providing superior adhesion to the stirrup.
- The Incline allows better foot positioning. Better positioning enables better posture.
Simply speaking, these stirrups will prevent you from losing the stirrup. The shock absorption is especially important because of the impact on landing. The “elastomers” of the stirrup absorb the impact, not allowing transfer to the ankles or knees.
The stirrups’ traditional and classic design makes them a good fit for use in jumping, eventing, hunter, dressage and polo.
If you are looking for stirrups with a sticky grip, look no further. The Spike studded footboard of the stirrups ensures you will not slip out of your stirrups.
Please note that the stirrups come with the double sided “Flex-On” magnetic stickers. However, you can replace these with the flag of your country (USA, Canada, Chile, Mexico, Great Brittain, Argentina, Colombia, Venezuela, Guatemala and Brazil are readily available). If you would like your own custom stickers (maybe your Barn or Company logo), we can do that as well. Just send us a note.
From The Manufacturer
Stirrups in the Aluminium Range are made of special type of Aluminium used in aeronautics. The Flex-On stirrup offers sophisticated bending which absorbs shock, with a tread that has a “Gripp”, or “Ultra Gripp” – surface for better adhesion-, and optimal stability and a perfect connection with the mount.
The stirrup frame with its offset, skewed slot for the stirrup leather is ultra-lightweight. It also offers the rider a special place for personalized communication.
The Flex-On Aluminium stirrup is fully machines from a solid block. The Research and Development (R&D) department has designed the stirrup with a complex geometry to give it strength and lightness.
