Arena Alupro Safety Stirrups
The stirrups are manufactured from a top-grade anodized aluminium and is fitted with a durable stainless steel tread. The manufacturing materials chosen were carefully selected following detailed research and comprehensive testing by Acavallo.
The aluminium provides a pleasing aesthetic, finishing the stirrup with an elegant appearance whilst being both light-weight and extremely durable. Stainless steel is used for the stirrup tread to ensure durability and prevent corrosion.
The opening of the stress-actuated lock and release mechanism is positioned a centimeter higher from the tread, thereby ensuring that the rider's foot cannot slip out of the stirrup laterally by mistake. This positioning also prevents sand and dirt from delaying the opening action of the arm in case of emergency.
Long holes in the tread prevent sand and dirt accumulating on the tread and compromising the gripping effect. A five degree inclination of the tread helps the rider to assume the correct posture, relieving tension in their ankles, calves, knees and hips.
