The Stability Stirrup Leathers’ wide-body design brings an unprecedented level of stability to a rider’s leg by providing a broader contact area on the saddle flap. Traditional 1 inch wide stirrup leathers have an inherent instability against the flap due to their height to width ratio. This either causes the two layers shift independently of one another, or the entire leather to rotate.
Stability Stirrup Leathers solve this problem by broadening the top layer of the leathers. This allows for the top layer to have left and right contact points on the flap (traditional leathers do not), which in turn provides an unparalleled level of stability not possible in traditional stirrup leathers.
The secondary benefit of this wide-body design, is the unbelievably smooth feeling under the rider’s leg. By the same mechanism that provides stability, they smooth out the transition from stirrup leather to saddle flap to create a feeling of “no leathers” under the leg.
Another key benefit of the Stability Stirrup Leathers comes from the material selection. The wide portion of the leathers are made from a 4mm durable and supple buffalo hide to provide the necessary support for the stirrup leathers to function. The remaining portion is made from an ultra-thin nylon webbing wrapped in soft calfskin, which keeps the bulk under the saddle skirt to an absolute minimum.
