LE MIEUX VECTOR CONTROL STIRRUPS ALUMINIUM

£159.95

Product Details

The LeMieux Vector stirrups are a new generation of stirrup –
technically advanced and lightweight, but retaining a classic style
expected from LeMieux

Machined from aviation grade aluminium offers an impressive strength to
weight ration, making them lighter than most stirrups on the market at
just 419g each, whilst not compromising on stability.

The ergonomic footplate of the Control Stirrup is set at 0 degrees with
a cross-track grip surface with embedded hardened steel pins to provide
maximum security of the boot.

The footplate is supported by a twin balance arch system that
distributes the weight evenly across the base of the stirrup frame. The
apex of the frame is recessed and off-set, encouraging a 45 ¼ outward
orientation which makes it easier for the rider to locate the optimum
angle for the foot and regain a lost stirrup.

An integrated hinged arm has a two-stage release system, preventing
unintentional opening. The spring loaded arm locks into the base of the
main frame meaning that when under maximum pressure, such as landing
over a fence, the rider's weight is spread evenly across the stirrup,
preventing the outside dropping and flexing. When pressure is put onto
the arm of the stirrup, the arm releases allowing the foot to come out
of the stirrup and minimising the risk of it getting stuck. The stirrup
arm breakout force = 36N (equivalent to 3.62kg) in testing meaning
enough resistance to stop it opening unintentionally, but will release
when needed.

It is important to note that no stirrup of this design (with a quick
release arm) is 100% guaranteed to open in the event of a fall. There
are several factors, such as a fall of the horse, a loose girth causing
saddle to slip and a slow or unusual angle of exit that may not generate
enough lateral force to open the release arm. This is very rare but
users must be aware that no stirrup is completely fool proof in every
eventuality.
