The LeMieux Vector Stirrups - technical advancement in classic style.
Made from aerospace grade aluminium, at just 419 grams they are significantly lighter than most stirrups without sacrificing stability!
The ergonomic footplate of the Control Stirrup is set at 0º and has a transverse gripping surface with embedded hardened steel pins to ensure a good grip of the boot.
The footplate is supported by a twin-balance arch system that distributes weight evenly across the base of the stirrup frame. The apex of the frame is recessed and offset, which promotes a 45º outward alignment, making it easier for the rider to find the optimum angle for the foot and retrieve a lost stirrup.
An integrated safety arm features a two-stage release system that prevents unintentional opening. The spring-loaded safety arm locks into the base of the main frame, which means that during high impact situations, such as landing after a jump, the rider's weight is evenly distributed across the stirrup. When pressure is applied to the stirrup arm, such as during a fall, the arm releases so that the foot does not get caught in the stirrup. The release force of the stirrup arm in the test is 36N (equivalent to 3.62kg), i.e. enough resistance to prevent accidental opening but to ensure safe release in the event of a fall.
