“Venice” riding stirrups are provided with a revolutionary safety mechanism which, in case of need, allows a section of the ring to open, thus easing the release of the foot; thereafter, thanks to a specific spring, the section gets back in its original position. One end of the moving part is fixed to the tread, while the other end is secured to the ring thanks to the spring pressure and a special locking system – made of small magnets – whose opening is possible only when a certain pressure is applied. Like all of our patented stirrups, they are 100% made in Italy. Tech Stirrups Venice are made from aluminium billet and then fastened with stainless steel screws. They are anodised (20μm treatment) to preserve their aesthetic quality. The patented grip, thanks to its strong design, help avoid accumulation of mud and water, thus granting excellent adherence. The shape of the stirrup leather loop itself has been conceived so to allow adjustments and effortless mounting.Our stirrups do not need special leathers. Classic stirrup leathers can be used.
