Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between the Ophena S and Ophena S Pro?
The difference between the two versions is the tread. It's made of fibre-reinforced plastics in the Ophena S, whereas the Ophena S Pro feature an aluminium tread with sharper spikes. They both have the same magnetic system and basic features, but the Pro give you even more grip.
Which stirrup model should I choose?
Generally, the majority of riders choose the standard version and is happy with it. If you ride on a higher level or are an advanced show jumper or cross country rider we recommend the Pro version. Also, if you intend to ride the stirrups without the magnetic insoles (from time to time or always), the Pro version will provide you with the better grip and is highly recommended.
That said, while the Ophena S Pro were launched in August 2021, the Ophena S have been around for much longer. The vast majority of our customers use the normal Ophena S and are very satisfied with them.
Can I renew the tread?
Yes, the tread can be renewed for both versions of the stirrups. Just check our shop.
Can I later upgrade from one version to the other?
Yes, you can upgrade from the Ophena S to the Ophena S Pro. We sell a kit in our shop. But this option will be a little more expensive than buying the Ophena S Pro directly.
