The Safety Stirrup™ with patent-pending 360° double safety release.

Made to keep you safe, again and again.

Double Release
A Safety Masterpiece

Ophena A is designed to keep you safe. The outer side is closed by a fully removable silicone piece: The Twister. The Twister can be released at two independent points and in any direction - thanks to our patent-pending 360° double safety release technology.

The Twister
Easy to twist in. Simple to be safe.

It may look like a simple piece, but has a complex, highly functional geometry. Anchor-like ends that perfectly match their aluminium counterpart. Keeping the Twister in place while riding, and releasing it in case of a fall.

Ophena’s established diamond tread provides you with optimal grip and maximum control - for an amazing feel. It looks great, helps you perform and makes you more confident in the saddle.

Sicherheit steht an erster Stelle

Ich fühle mich richtig wohl mit meinen Sicherheitssteigbügeln auf meinem Jungspund der gerne mal ein paar Hopser macht :) . Sicherheit sollte immer an erster Stelle stehen. Und das mit Stil :)

Superb safety stirrups!

These are great stirrups as I feel secure in the saddle with them, my feet never slip and i also feel secure in the knowledge that if something did go wrong the stirrups will 'give way". The instructions to put the rubbers on were great. I'd have been most appreciative if a second set of rubbers were provided though , in case something went wrong and I couldn't find the rubbers afterwards. The other great feature is that they've been approved to ride in competitions. Great advantage. I must admit that I like them much more than the magnetic stirrups I purchased before I saw these. I have been diagnosed with early stage Parkinson's and really like the fact the safety stirrups give me confidence to ride and get on and off easily but still provide more support and safety than other stirrups. And, of course, the packaging and quick delivery to Australia was fabulous . Thanks.

Ophena Safety stirrups

As a new foxhunter at age 68 I have total peace of mind about my safety with my new Ophena stirrups. They are not only beautiful, but are extremely functional . The twisters on the outside of the stirrups will easily disengage if the rider gets into a bind, in any discipline. The twisters are easily replaced. I recently returned to the barn after a rigorous cross country ride with jumps, and noticed my right stirrup was missing the twister, but my foot was secure the whole time. I don't know if a tree branch caught it or what. I immediately emailed Ophena and the replacement was on the way and arrived in 3 days. Their service is Excellent. They strive to take care of each customer with the white glove treatment. I highly recomment these Ophena stirrups if you are looking to be as safe as possible while riding . They may save you a trip to the Emergency Room, and are a worthwhile investment. The best stirrups in the field in my opinion!
