SPECIAL SPRING EFFECT
Due to its design and construction which is based on flexible polymers, the stirrup conveys a less rigid and much more comfortable feeling to the rider than with conventional products The springing stirrup bow and foot support assembly is capable of effectively absorbing and compensating for short-term and sudden impacts exerted through the rider's weight from the top, e. g. during posting, jumping or hacking. This gives considerable benefits for the rider including strong relief of foot arches, ankles, knees and hips making this a great stirrup for those riders suffering from orthopedic problems.
