Safety has always been the starting point of Ophena stirrups. When Ophena started its journey by manufacturing its first ever product, Ophena S magnetic safety stirrups, it all started from the idea of improving and increasing the safety of equestrians.
The purpose of our magnetic safety stirrups and regular safety stirrups is to offer equestrians a better, safer, and more convenient riding experience. If you want to feel and be safer when riding, keep reading. Today, we will look at how Ophena safety stirrups can help you to feel and be safer.
Ophena safety stirrups were manufactured with utmost safety in mind
Safety stirrups have been on the equestrian market for quite a while now. For instance, peacock stirrup with the old-school rubber band safety system have existed for decades.
When we first started developing Ophena S, the first magnetic safety stirrup in our product line, we wanted to create a safety stirrup that would offer riders a safer riding experience.
Ophena S features an open design that allows the rider's foot to release easier in case of an accident. In other words, in case of a fall, there is a lower chance of getting stuck in the stirrups, which decreases the risk of serious injuries.
We added a magnetic connection to Ophena S, which ensures that the rider's foot stays in place during the ride. The strong magnet decreases the chance of losing your stirrups during a ride, which is especially good for showjumpers. Have you ever lost a stirrups during your course? It completely messes up your concentration.
As a cherry on top, we designed the Smart Attach™-system, which doesn't exactly increase the safety aspect, but it does make attaching and detaching your stirrups a whole lot easier. It also saves your stirrup leathers.
Later on, our Ophena family grew with another product, Ophena S Pro. It's also a magnetic safety stirrup model, but with improved treading.
The safety stirrups without a magnet
Over the years, our magnetic safety stirrups received a wonderful welcome from the equestrian community and today, thousands of riders use Ophena magnetic safety stirrups. However, as fantastic as magnetic safety stirrups are, they are not suitable for those who compete in dressage.
So, we racked our brains and created Ophena A, a regular safety stirrup without a magnet. It features patent-pending technology that increases the safety of riders of all disciplines.
Ophena A's outer side is closed by a silicone piece that anchors in two points and releases in every direction. While keeping the design closed, the patent-pending release-technology ensures the easy release of your foot in case of an accident.
Why are Ophena safety stirrups safer?
There are many kinds of safety stirrups on the market, each with their own unique safety mechanisms. We wanted to create a stirrup that decreases the chances of getting stuck and makes it almost impossible to get caught. Our magnetic safety stirrups have an open design, so there are no safety mechanisms that could get stuck or malfunction.
Additionally, the magnetic connection keeps the rider's foot in place during the ride, immediately increasing the feeling of safety and comfort. Knowing that losing your stirrups during a ride is unlikely, the rider will instantly feel safer and more comfortable.
Thanks to Ophena S Pro's improved treading, even riders who ride in snow, sleet, rain, and shine will feel secure. The rough treading prevents the foot from slipping in the stirrups as easily and this is especially important for those who ride outside, no matter the weather.
When it comes to our regular safety stirrups, Ophena A, you will instantly feel safer knowing that our patent-pending technology allows your foot to release easily in case of a fall.
How do Ophena safety stirrups compare to others?
Our safety stirrups have been manufactured with safety at the forefront. We considered how we can make our safety stirrups as safe as possible, allowing as little room for errors and malfunctions as possible. We know that riding horses is a risky sport, and sometimes you encounter situations that are simply beyond your control.
Our safety stirrups differ from others in many ways: for instance, we utilize patented and patent-pending technology that is not available anywhere else. Also, we considered other little things that most manufacturers don't take into account.
For instance, our stirrups have exceptional treading, and that combined with a magnetic connection and an open design makes our magnetic safety stirrups as safe as possible. We also included an easy way to attach and detach stirrups to and from stirrup leathers - something that most rider's cannot live without anymore after trying it out once.
When it comes to design, our safety stirrups are visually very pleasing and stylish.
