Stirrups in the Aluminium Range are made of a special type of aluminium used in aeronautics. The Flex-on stirrup offers sophisticated bending which absorbs shock, with a tread that has a "Grip" or "Ultra-Grip" -surface for better adhesion-, 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 machined from a solid block.
The R&D department has designed the stirrup with a complex geometry to give it strength and lightness.
Flex-on's original innovative hi-tech stirrups designed - are scientifically proven to help with the rider's position and reduce strain on leg muscles and joints. These have to be tried to be believed
Flex-on have submitted their stirrups for a scientific study comparing their effects to those of two other brands, including another high-end design. The study, conducted by Sport Controle, a respected French organisation specialising in biomechanical and other sport-related assessments, measured both the riders' posture and movement through kinematic analysis and accelerometer measurements. These showed improved riding position and less stress on the riders' joints compared with the other stirrups, which was also borne out by the riders' subjective comments.
