The core technology of “Aphrodite” dressage stirrups lies in their tread. In fact, their weight has been concentrated in the treads to ensure greater stability.
Moreover, they are provided with top quality grips so as not to hinder the rider’s feet during use. Unlike the most common dressage stirrups available on the market, Tech Stirrups’ “Aphrodite” are equipped with grips conceived to let the rider communicates better with his horse, as the tread surface has been designed with specific angles allowing greater freedom of movement. In addition, the shape of the stirrup leather loop has been conceived so to allow the stirrup itself to keep in an appropriate position for an effort less foot positioning.
After repeated tests – carried out both on the weight and on the shape of the products – our stirrups resulted to be balanced so that, in case of loss of the stirrups during galloping, they tend to beat as little as possible on the horse belly if compared to other stirrups of the same type currently available on the market.
The aesthetics of Tech Stirrups horse-riding stirrups has been designed to the last detail. Furthermore, all the milling operations have been carried out with high speed CNC machines programmed with CAD-CAM software, in order to obtain well-refined, high-quality finishes. To avoid harming the horse or spoiling the harness, the front part of the treadshas been rounded and all the corners of the stirrups have been smoothened. In addition, the screws have been placed in sockets so not to protrude.
Tech Stirrups horse-riding stirrups are made of radiographed and certified material. Before packing, all the rings undergo a breaking strength test, which is carried out with machines that we have specifically designed for the purpose. Although they undergo to countless checks and despite the fact that screws are fixed, we always suggest customers to verify the correct closure before use.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Put correctly the stirrups on the saddle.
Our stirrups are provided with direction marks on the ring:

During use, R and L marks should point towards the rider.
On the tread is positioned an arrow that specifies the right side of the foot insertion in the stirrup.
