The Safety Stirrup™ with patent-pending 360° double safety release.
Made to keep you safe, again and again.
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.
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.
We want you to be fully satisfied. Therefore you can try our stirrups for up to 60 days. Use them as you like and return them for a full refund if you are not satisfied.
The Ophena A has been carefully designed to provide flexibility and soft dampening. Right below the tread is a cushioning element to provide comfort for your knees, without disturbing the design. Further, the entire stirrup flexes to absorb harder impacts.
The core is made out of solid aerospace-grade aluminium. Precision-machined for elegant shapes and highest durability. The Twister is made out of durable silicone, that is both UV and water resistant. With a thoughtful design of distinctive shapes, every element has been carefully perfected.

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 :)
super durchdachte Steigbügel
Mi den Steigbügeln fühle ich mich auf meiner Jungstute nun viel sicherer.
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.
Bin sehr zufrieden mit den Steigbügeln und fühl mich sicher !
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!
They are perfect, secure and safe. Quality is excellent.
