The Magnetic Safety Stirrup™ Ophena S was developed to make horseback riding safer.
Its form language is built around a smooth stainless-steel body, providing a clear contour and mechanical base for the unique open design. The open side ensures that riders cannot get caught in case of a fall. The fibre-reinforced tread integrates a magnetic system consisting of several magnetic elements, enabling a soft magnetic connection to dedicated magnetic insoles inside the riding boots - for real plug & play. And patented Smart Attach technology makes attachment to the saddle easier and quicker.
