The level of equestrian sports has continued to rise in recent years. The issue of keeping the horse in good physical shape has become a key question in research on horse riding surfaces and protective systems for the legs.
But what about the rider? Just like the horse, the rider also suffers many impacts and his skeleton is put severely to the test. This is evidenced by the many recent injuries to riders (slipped discs, adductor muscle problems, etc.). For this reason, Flex-on now designs products for both horses and their riders.
- Designed from an organically sourced polyamide material, the Green Composite stirrup is designed on the same model as the Aluminium Flex-on stirrup.
- It can be cleaned with water and is therefore easier to maintain. It is aimed at a wider range of riders.
- Still providing dramatically improved technical performance in terms of shock absorption and ergonomics (a specific feature of Flex-on), it has an internal steel frame to reinforce the polymer part.
- The Green Composite stirrup is designed to be competitively priced while still maintaining Flex-on’s established quality and design features.
