Epplejeck offers stirrups made of various materials and colours and from different brands, such as eQuick, Sprenger, Compositi or TechStirrups. Our assortment has stirrups for different purposes, so you can find the style that fits you best. Robust polymer stirrups, classic stainless steel, or lightweight aluminium stirrups, whatever tickles your fancy. Most stirrups have a flat footbed, but it’s possible to change this by inserting slanted or wedged stirrup pads. There are aluminium and rubber stirrup pads, but the former tend to be less slippery. Special safety stirrups protect you during a fall and will prevent your feet from getting stuck in the stirrups. Asymmetrical stirrups are suitable if you have trouble maintaining the right leg position, as these force your ankles inwards and your heels down.
Sprenger Bow Balance Stirrups
If your muscles and/or knees play up when you’re riding, then the Sprenger Bow Balance Stirrups are just the thing for you! Thanks to their fantastic grip, the wide footbed and flexible sides, your feet and legs will be more comfortable when in motion. Their flexibility and special style with curved top aid your leg position, while reducing any pain you may feel from your knees or leg muscles while in the saddle. Additionally, the flexible side parts will make it easier for your feet to slide out of the stirrups in case of a fall.
Stirrups for better leg position
Besides the Bow Balance stirrups, we carry a few other flexible stirrups in our assortment. They all have the same effect: keeping your legs more still and in a better position. The Flexcite stirrups from Sprenger have flexible sides and an asymmetrical top, which makes them ideal for anyone who suffers from sensitive joints and restless legs.
Safety should always be priority number one when riding, and stirrups are no exception. Over the last few years, safety stirrups have gained in popularity and of course we also stock them at Epplejeck. Stirrups with flexible elements can prevent your feet from becoming stuck in the stirrups. But there's also the possibility of having toe clips on the stirrups or having stirrups with elasticated sides that will slide off or snap in case of an emergency. But the most popular type of safety stirrup, by far, is the Venice model by Tech Stirrup. These stirrups feature a revolutionary safety mechanism that allows the stirrup to open at the outside, up to 90 degrees, when pressure is applied to the side. That way, you won’t get stuck in the stirrup and once the pressure is gone, magnets will automatically snap the stirrup closed again.
