Designed for tomorrow's little Champions, the Junior Safe-on stirrup combines the performance characteristics of the original Flex-on models with a dual "breakaway" system, designed to release in the event of a fall.
The Safe-on range by Flex-on is designed to reduce the risk of a rider's foot getting stuck in the stirrup in the event of a fall. It is a the forefront of the most up to date "breakaway" style, where the outer arm of the stirrup opens to release the foot when the rider's weight acts against it.
The Safe-on Junior stirrup must have at least 15kg of weight, (or the equivalent in kinetic energy) acting on the outer arm to open it.
The Safe-on or Safe-on Junior stirrup is unlikely to open if the pony or horse stands still when the rider falls; and will not open if the fall does not cause the rider's weight to act on the outer arm of the stirrup.
As with any safety equipment, safety stirrups can only reduce the risk of a foot getting trapped in a fall, there is no design which can prevent it.
Recommended for riders under 40kgs (max size 37 shoe size, 6 US and 4 UK).
Standard grip (ultra-grip available on request only).
