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.
