Winderen Wide Footbed Stirrups - Matte Black
• Correct and comfortable leg positioning
• Significantly reduced strain on knee joints
• Stable and unchangeable foot position in the stirrup
We designed the Innovative stirrups Winderen Knee Protect Solution with kinetic energy absorber system in order to significantly reduce strain on the rider’s knee joints during riding, especially when jumping over fences. At the same time, Winderen Knee Protect Solution stirrups allow achieving an unusually solid and unchangeable foot position in the stirrup, which provides stable and comfortable lower leg application.
The concern of a solid and unchangeable foot position in the stirrup is faced by many riders. During our researches, it turned out that in most cases stirrups move or fall out because of micromovements in the rigid connection point of stirrup leather with the stirrup. Our absorber-system, to a large extent, prevents that phenomenon, allowing the riders to feel a stable and comfortable leg position while jumping over fences and also during flat work. Simultaneously our stirrups significantly reduce the risk of shifting or losing a stirrup, leading to the loss balance often caused by stiff stirrups.
Kinetic energy absorber system
Developed to absorb part of the energy created by the direct pressure of the eyes of the stirrup to the stirrup leather. This mainly works when landing on stirrups after the jumps and makes the rider feel safer and more confident.
Absorbs part of the energy created by landing on stirrups and also provides stable and comfortable foot support in the stirrup during the jumping course as well as during flat work. Also suits the needs of endurance riders.
Adjustable tilt of the footpad
Taking into account the different preferences of the riders, we made it possible to individually adapt the tilt of the footpad, giving the ability to adjust it classically (flat) and up to a tilt of 5 degrees.
Footpad grip and durability
The footpad is made of durable and extremely abrasion-resistant composite. Spike-shaped extensions improve the adhesion of the shoe-sole, preventing the foot from slipping out of the stirrup.
We care about the full satisfaction of our customers. If our hard-wearing grips get abrased, you can send your pair of stirrups back to us and we will exchange your footpad for a new one.
To get the right stirrup weight, the metal frame was made of high quality, durable aluminum. The footpad and also the upper absorber cover are made of durable composite. In this way, we achieved a weight of 560g / 1.24 lb for one stirrup.
This is the weigh most riders described as “appropriate”. They are neither too light nor too heavy. Thanks to the right balance they are virtually undetectable.
Comfort for riders
Knee Protect Solution stirrups have been created in cooperation with riders on various levels of training. From hobbyists, through amateurs, to professional riders. This large group included not only jumpers, but also dressage riders as well as eventers. A large part of the test-group were riders having suffered from injuries and therefore complaining about pain in their knees and ankles, occurring immediately after training. They testified that their pain is considerably reduced using our stirrups. We have adopted such a wide and diverse test-group, in order to create a product that satisfies the expectations of all kinds of riders, regardless of the level of training or discipline. In our opinion, this goal was achieved in 100%.
A noticeable difference, independent of weight
The difference of the forces acting on riders weighing 50 kilograms / 110 lb, and those weighing 90 kilograms / 198 lb is considerable. We have achieved our goal to blur these differences by using smart materials in the energy absorption system of Knee Protect Solution. Our stirrups provide all riders the same comfort, independent of their weight.

"Both items I ordered are just lovely. Out of the box, I'm impressed with the quality of leather on both of them. It looks stunning on my gelding and fits super. Even the more affordable option has similarly nice leather to its Italian counterpart, with quality stitching & craftsmanship."
"In love! I bought these stirrups because I needed ones that had a wide footbed, were of good quality, and were also affordable. This stirrup checked all of the boxes and look so great! Would definitely recommend to my friends."
"I've been using this as a part of my horses' routine. They caught on super fast and improved under saddle. I recommended it to a friend, and it has helped her tremendously with her thoroughbreds muscle development. I rate this a 10/10. Well done, Equiluxe!"

Who we are, how we started
Hi, I'm Kathryn! Founder, designer, customer care rep, and "everything else" at Equiluxe Tack!

This is what inspired me to bring the unique, original vibe to life with my store, Equiluxe Tack. I started my business in 2020 and am so proud of how far we've come; I'm working towards many more years to come, every single day.
