Vector Control Stirrups
Lemieux - Item #IT02053
Our Price: $255.95
The LeMieux Vector stirrups are a new generation of stirrup - technically advanced and lightweight, but retaining a classic style expected from LeMieux
Machined from aviation-grade aluminum, this stirrup offers an impressive strength-to-weight ratio, making them lighter than most stirrups on the market at just 419g each, whilst not compromising on stability.
The ergonomic footplate of the Control Stirrup is set at 0 ¼ with a cross-track grip surface with embedded hardened steel pins to provide maximum security for the boot.
The footplate is supported by a twin-balance arch system that distributes the weight evenly across the base of the stirrup frame. The apex of the frame is recessed and off-set, encouraging a 45 ¼ outward orientation which makes it easier for the rider to locate the optimum angle for the foot and regain a lost stirrup.
An integrated hinged arm has a two-stage release system that prevents unintentional opening. The spring-loaded arm locks into the base of the main frame meaning that when under maximum pressure, such as landing over a fence, the rider's weight is spread evenly across the stirrup, preventing the outside from dropping and flexing. When pressure is put onto the arm of the stirrup, the arm releases allowing the foot to come out of the stirrup and preventing it from getting stuck. The stirrup arm breakout force = 36N (equivalent to 3.62kg) in testing meaning enough resistance to stop it opening unintentionally but will release when needed.
