TOTAL SADDLE FIT STABILITY STIRRUP LEATHERS - SLIM
Approx $175.12 USD
Stirrup leathers just got a whole lot better. The SLIM Stability Stirrup Leathers' wide-body design brings an unprecedented level of stability to a rider's leg, while at the same time creates a smoothness on the flap that makes them disappear under the leg
SLIM Stability Stirrup Leathers are designed deliberately in two styles, either JUMP or DRESSAGE in sizes Medium or Large, which fit like 54″ and 60″ traditional leathers, respectively.
SLIM Stability Stirrup Leathers are now available in an intelligent low-profile design that removes the buckle bulkiness of traditional stirrup leathers from under the saddle skirt, leaving a rider feeling nothing but the comfort of the saddle. This unique design also allows a rider to configure the stirrup irons to be rotated 90° from traditional positioning to alleviate knee strain (see above photo gallery for example).
The SLIM Stability Stirrup Leathers’ wide-body design brings an unprecedented level of stability to a rider’s leg by providing a broader contact area on the saddle flap. Traditional 1 inch wide stirrup leathers have an inherent instability against the flap due to their height to width ratio. This either causes the two layers shift independently of one another, or the entire leather to rotate.
SLIM Stability Stirrup Leathers solve this problem by broadening the top layer of the leathers. This allows for the top layer to have left and right contact points on the flap (traditional leathers do not), which in turn provides an unparalleled level of stability not possible in traditional stirrup leathers.
The secondary benefit of this wide-body design, is the unbelievably smooth feeling under the rider’s leg. By the same mechanism that provides stability, they smooth out the transition from stirrup leather to saddle flap to create a feeling of “no leathers” under the leg. When this is paired with the ultra-slim design under the saddle skirt, it becomes the most comfortable stirrup leather available.
Another key benefit of the SLIM Stability Stirrup Leathers comes from the material selection. The wide portion of the leathers are made from a 4mm durable and supple buffalo hide to provide the necessary support for the stirrup leathers to function. The remaining portion is made from an ultra-thin nylon webbing wrapped in soft calfskin, with length adjusting buckles at the bottom.
Please note that due to the unique design of the SLIM Stability Stirrup Leathers, the irons (stirrups) cannot be “run up” onto the saddle flap for storage. They must be crossed over the seat of the saddle instead (or left in place).
